Last night I watched V for Vendetta and one of the most memorable things about it was the fact that Natalie Portman had no hair for half of the movie. The actual hair removing process was on screen for less than 5 seconds, however it was significant nonetheless. Now Halle Berry is getting in on the act. For her next movie, Nappily Ever After, she is going to have her lovely locks sheered off like a sheep.
On going bald for a role:
“I am shaving it off,” she says. “I know. Here comes the controversy, but I have to do it for the role and it will grow back – I hope.”
Where as Natalie Portman’s character had her hair removed whilst being interrogated and tortured, Halle Berry’s character will be doing it willingly to find some ‘inner beauty’ type stuff.
Speaking of beauty, in Halle’s next film she plays a hooker and goes topless, just like she did in Swordfish.
[Note: I actually did watch V for Vendetta last night and didn’t make it up purely because it fitted nicely with this news. I have Twitter proof!]
