Actresses will completely transform themselves physically for roles if they have to. It is common enough for them to gain and lose weight to portray certain characters. What is less common is for them to shave their heads to get into character. Few actresses really want to go bald for a role. Hair is one of those defining things for women – without it, they don’t feel feminine and they certainly don’t feel beautiful. We have a list of 7 brave actresses who were up to the challenge. These ladies shaved off their gorgeous locks for a role and looked pretty hot while doing it!
7. Sigourney Weaver
Sigourney Weaver was probably the first actress to shave her head. She did this for her role in “Aliens 3.” Even though it was quite the change, she didn’t mind it; however, other people did.
“I liked it in a way that I found it very liberating, and my husband was very supportive. He pretended to like it and then told me, after my hair had grown back, that he had hated it, while my daughter tried not to look at me. But none of us [in the film] had hair anyway so we all knew who was in the cast. So if you saw a bald person at Pinewood you knew it was a friend, so you could say, ‘Hello’. And the only other thing that was a problem was that it took a lot of up-keep. We had to shave it every two days, because even then two days’ growth looked shaggy – but yeah, I found it okay,” she said.Photo by c.20thC.Fox/Everett / Rex Features
