Demi Moore Says She’s Done Cutting Her Hair For Roles Since She Has Nothing To “Prove”
Hear that, all of you actors and actresses out here shaving your heads for roles and copying what Demi Moore did all the way back in the 90s? *Cough* Natalie Portman *Cough* Anne Hathaway *Cough* According to Demi Moore, she will never again let a movie hairstylist take a pair of scissors to her luscious Morticia Addams mane in the name of a movie role. If Demi gets a role that requires short hair, give her a wig! And Demi’s also not sure how it’ll grow back if she cuts it. So, she’s given her hair historical status and is not changing it anytime soon.
As everyone knows, back in ’97, Demi shaved her head to play a Navy SEAL in Ridley Scott‘s G.I. Jane. And it will never happen again!
Demi tells People (via Page Six) that she’s all about leaving her hair alone nowadays and is also keeping her hair long as a sort of protest against some people thinking that older women should only have short hair. So while a Botox needle may touch Demi, one sharp thing that won’t ever touch her is a pair of haircutting scissors.
Demi Moore famously shaved her head to play a Navy SEAL in Ridley Scott’s 1997 war drama, but told People she’d be “hard-pressed” to chop off her long locks for a role like that today.
“I think now that I’m older … I don’t have anything to prove. So if they really need my hair different, they can give me a wig,” the 59-year-old actress said, adding that it’s “also not as clear how it would grow back!”
Added Moore of her signature waist-length tresses, “I’ve done everything to my hair. I’ve shaved it. I’ve dyed it. I’ve had a bob. When I’m not working, I try to do as little to it as possible. It’s stressful even having someone touch it.”
What’s more, she likes that she’s busting beauty norms by opting to wear her hair down to her hips.
“I remember hearing someone say that when women get older, they shouldn’t have long hair. And something about that stuck with me,” Moore said.
“Like who says? It made me feel like, well, if it can grow and it’s not unhealthy, then why shouldn’t we? I’m not comfortable with rules that don’t seem to have any real meaning or justification.”
Welp, I guess Demi Moore saw how Will Smith reacted to Chris Rock‘s bald-woman G.I. Jane joke and decided that it could never happen again! No one will be slapped due to the Butterfly Effect of Demi’s baldness ever again!
