Jennifer Aniston has had the same style, more or less, ever since she ditched the “Rachel” in the ’90s — which is why we basically had a heart attack when we saw her latest cut.
Jen, who’s currently shooting an untitled project with Tim Robbins and Will Forte, debuted a freshly shorn scalp at an event in New York last night. “It’s for a role,” she told reporters on the red carpet. “My character gets to this really broken point, and [director] Daniel [Schechter] and I thought it would make her more realistic.”
Jen isn’t the first actress to go practically bald for a film. Charlize Theron and Anne Hathaway both buzzed their hair for recent roles — and Hathaway even took home an Oscar partly thanks to her extreme makeover.
We’re not sure how Jen’s new look will affect her work with haircare brand Living Proof — her first campaign recently launched — but luckily, since she’s a part owner of the company, she can’t be fired.
