10 famous actresses who shaved bald for a role

3 min


In order to take on this or that role, actors and actresses, eminent and not so, are sometimes ready for incredible things. So incredible that just shaving your own head (or cutting very short) is something completely mundane.

But still this is a crucial decision, and there are not very many known cases where actresses of the first magnitude did so. It is understandable — not everyone is ready to wait several years until their beloved curls grow back. However, someone from our today’s list is not so loved by these curls, someone rejoiced at the opportunity to experiment with looks, but for someone shooting in a particular film was more expensive than any inconvenience with a haircut.

Which of the famous actresses appeared before the audience in an atypical way for themselves? For clarity, we are showing you one frame from the film + the release as proof that they actually did it, and didn’t do it with linings, makeup or the services of graphics & technologies.
