Christian Bale is doing it. So is Jamie Foxx. What is it exactly? The comb-over!

The much-maligned comb-over is making a come-back this year in two feature films: Christian Bale sports a classic 70s-style comb-over in David O. Russell’s “American Hustle,” while Jamie Foxx also goes bald and tries to hide it in The Amazing Spider-Man 2. Check out Bale’s comb-over here, and Foxx’s less-classic, but still believe-looking do here.

Back in 2010, Colin Farrell also tried to bring back the comb-over look in the film, “Horrible Bosses.”

What other celebs have gone bald for movie roles? Check out the list here on Yahoo! Movies.

Here’s a bit of trivia: did you know the word ‘comb-over’ wasn’t used until 1980, according to the Merriam-Webster dictionary?
