Preparation for a movie role, image makeover or just a plain old-fashioned Britney Spears-style meltdown.
Whatever their excuse, here are ten Hollywood celebs who got the most drastic haircuts:
It’s been six years since Britney’s infamous public shaving session, and to date, people are reluctant to leave electric razors unattended in her presence.
Many looked at the steady chopping of her hair as one of her more questionable personal grooming choices. Little did they know that the bleached eyebrows were on their way.
Since her High School Musical days, we’ve seen Vanessa Hudgens in a variety of avatars; this soccer mom look definitely doesn’t make it to our top five.
In an emotionally charged moment while shooting for the action thriller, V for Vendetta, Natalie Portman chopped off her beautiful brown locks. The tears shed in that scene probably weren’t all that fake, after all.
Speaking on Jennifer’s sudden pixie cut, the director of the Hunger Games franchise said, “We fried her hair, which is sad. I feel bad." The last sentence just about summed up the sentiments of a dozen fashion critics.
Slashing off your hair for the sake of a movie is probably going above and beyond the call of duty, but at least Anne Hathaway has an Oscar to show for it.
Nothing spells ‘not Hermione’ as effectively as chopping off the brown locks that her Harry Potter character was famous for.
If you thought that guys weren’t vain enough to be bothered with their appearance, you’d better not tell that to Javier Bardem - The actor apparently went into depression for three months after the haircut he was made to get for his role in the 2007 thriller, No Country For Old Men.
We might be double her age in terms of years, and yet her adventurous fashion choices are not something we’d be willing to take. Present haircut included.
Who needs beautiful long blonde hair when you can have an unrecognizable, spiky pixie cut instead?
