Who is this man? Kevin Smith looks nothing like the grungy guy we knew

Kevin Smith debuted a very different look this morning, and he is completely unrecognizable from the guy we first met in Clerks.

The director first teased his look with an Instagram shot yesterday, saying his beard would soon disappear.

He wasn't kidding.

Before:

This is my magic beard. Enjoy it now: tomorrow, I am going to shave it off for #YogaHosers

After:

Look at this goofy spaz. This is me, beardless, for the #YogaHosers green screen shoot. #FaceBrazilian

Smith's new look isn't just the result of a good, close shave — he has also lost around 20 pounds by changing his diet and exercising, with the help of an adorable little friend.

Day 17 of no added or processed sugar. Down 20 pounds. Feeling so good, I'm hiking the hills with my wiener out.

Currently filming Yoga Hosers with Johnny Depp, Smith says making movies has proven to be a remarkable weight loss tool.

"True story: on Tusk, I learned how to lose weight while making a movie," he told ComicBook.com. "The secret is to not eat sugar and stand all day. I never sit behind the monitor: I'm always moving now. I've been wearing a Jawbone bracelet and using the UP app to count my daily steps and every day this week, I've averaged 12,000. That's close to walking 5 miles a day. I never walk 5 miles a day ever. So while I stand there every day making this weird little movie with my kid and her friend in it, I've been quietly cutting pounds in the process. This is why I've been stringing so many movies together lately: filmmaking, for me, has proven to be an excellent exercise regiment."

Smith lost 65 pounds several years ago after being booted off a Southwest flight when a flight attendant decided he didn't safely fit into the seat.

Keep up the great work!
