"We've been on a serious dry spell working real hard, training. Finally finished our film. We're on a little holiday, and we're going to do a little bit of this Cristalino. Tastings, bar takeovers, everything I've had. I've had a sniff, but I haven't had a sip. Drink of the summer right here. You want to stay lean but still get it in — right here. That's worth the wait. Guess what? You won't put on the weight. Enjoy," he said in the clip.

But fans couldn't help but weigh in on the haircut. One person wrote, "What is up with the shaved head, did I miss something? New movie role? Not my favorite look," while another said, "You look like you just got out of 5 years in lock up. All you’re missing is the neck tattoos."

A third person said, "You look like Matt Damon there," while a fourth added, "Dude that’s a serious haircut."

A fifth person expressed, "I miss your haiiiirrrrrr!!!😩😩."

This is not the first time Wahlberg had a shaved head. In 2021, he sported his buzz cut for the world to see.

At the time, the Ted alum revealed he had to gain weight for his role in Father Stu.

"I'm going up another 20. Yes it's for a role," he captioned a before and after photo — one with his abs protruding and another one with his stomach showing.
