REESE Witherspoon admits it was “a little scary” having to cut her hair for new movie Water For Elephants.
The Oscar winning actress had the option of wearing a wig to play her platinum blonde character but instead spoiled her own luscious locks.
“I debated about whether or not I was going to wear a wig,” says Reese.
“Ultimately, after lots of discussion and screen-testing, I decided, ‘I’m just going to cut my hair. I’m just going to dye it white. I’m just going to do it.’ It was really transforming for me if a little scary. In the end I didn’t even recognize myself.”
Reese recently admitted her Hollywood stardom hasn’t come without a price.
“Sometimes I will sit in the car and cry,” she said.
“Because I can’t get out. That’s the only thing: I mourn the loss of my privacy.
“With whatever I’ve lost, I’ve gained tenfold in life experience.”
