8 Actresses Who Shaved Their Heads For A Movie Role
2017 seems to be the year of the shaved head when it comes to celebrity beauty trends. Kate Hudson recently shared a breaking photo on her Instagram of herself with a completely bald head for her new role in upcoming film Sisters. News of her hair evolution came shortly after Kristen Stewart and Cara Delevingne announced their own revolutionary hair cuts for upcoming film roles in recent months. These actresses prove that going bald is liberating and that they have no fear in making a dramatic appearance change when it comes to their careers. Take a look back at other actresses who shaved their long locks for a film role:
8. Demi Moore 1997 — G.I. Jane
Although she is known for her long luscious locks nowadays, Demi Moore’s hair didn’t always look this way! The star opted for a cropped buzzcut in 1997 for her role as Jordan O’Neill in G.I. Jane. In the film she plays a woman battling through gender expectations and proving herself in the male-dominated realm of a U.S Navy Seals training program. A plot line in the film is that Moore shaves her head to prove she is tough and has the qualities of a Navy Seal. Although the role was intended to be a career-making move for her, the actress did not receive high praise and even won the 1997 Razzie Award for Worst Actress.
7. Angelina Jolie 1998 — Gia
In the name of the big screen, we’ve seen Angelina Jolie rock everything from long waves, to cropped pixis and even buzzcuts for a movie role. Her most memorable, however, is from 1998 when she shaved her head for the role of Gia Marie Carangi in HBO’s TV movie Gia. The role required her to play a ’70 supermodel and Jolie undeniably was the right casting for the role. She proved that she can rock any look when it comes to hair and pulled off the buzzcut without question.
