Halle Berry discusses her bald steez with Essence Magazine:
Halle Berry is preparing for a drastic haircut – the actress has agreed to shave her head for a new role. The star will say goodbye to her locks for her forthcoming part in 2010 romantic comedy Nappily Ever After.
She tells U.S. magazine Essence, “I’m shaving it off! I know. Here comes the controversy, but… it’ll grow back – I hope!” And the star admits the decision was inspired by her desire to make her 11-month-old daughter, Nahla, proud of her career. She adds: “I don’t want my daughter to look back at my work and think, ‘Mom sold out.’ I want to leave a legacy that she can be proud of.”
She used to rock the short styles like a champ, and it looks like the bald thang may actually be a good look for her too. In regards to her upcoming film, if it’s anything like the book – this jawn ought to be pretty tight – but your girl hasn’t been starred in a ‘good’ flick in a minute, so we’ll have to wait and see…
