Is Halle Berry Really Going Bald?

04/11/2007 at 04:30 PM ET

She’s one of Hollywood’s great beauties, but for her next role, Halle Berry says she’s going to take it all off — her head. That’s right, the Oscar winner recently told PEOPLE that she’s going to shave off her gorgeous locks for an upcoming role (to play a woman who loses her hair and is forced to see much of how her identity was tied to her looks). “For [Nappily Ever After], I am going to shave my hair, so I’ll have short hair again very soon.” And beautiful female stars breaking out the clippers for their craft is nothing new: Demi Moore did it for G.I. Jane, Natalie Portman shaved for V for Vendetta and Sigourney Weaver went chrome-domed for Aliens 3. We say, if anyone can pull off a shaved head, it’s Halle. Tell us: What do you think of Halle shaving her head? Will it be a good look?

anything for publicity, right halle? it’s not enough to just do it as your JOB, for a ROLE, you have to announce it first. just like all your bad relationships, just like your suicide…get OVER yourself. i can think of 10 more beatiful black women than her right now who are quiet and classy and just go about their business and yet still get their picture taken all the time. that looks like an awesome dress, maybe someone ELSE could actually do it justice!?!

I think that even though she looks amazing with hair, if anyone can do it and pull it off its her!!

I think Halle Berry is a stunning woman and can pull off any look. The same goes for Natalie Portman and Demi Moore. My question is this though, why do we applaud and encourage a woman to shave her head for a role in a movie, yet we persecute and ridicule someone for shaving her head in her own personal life? (i.e. Britney Spears) I’m not saying she doesn’t need help. She obviously needs it because of her addictive personality, but why was her shaving her head the biggest deal since her divorce? Why was THAT action the straw that broke the camel’s back? Just something to think about.

The sad thing about that is, bald or not my boyfriend is still going to think she is drop dead georgous!

I don’t dislike Halle Berry, especially compared to some other celebrities, but I do agree with some of J’s comments. Halle does often come of as desperate for attention and like she always wants to play the victim. Someone that wanted to kill themselves over a man isn’t someone I would look up to.

Wow do we have a Hallie Hater? Seriously let the woman be human. We all have our problems and if we were famous we would have just as many public breakups and depression rumors as the next celebrity. Plus don’t always believe everything you read. Give her a break. I don’t even think it’s a big deal that she publicly came out and talked about chopping her hair. She’s trying to build up her upcoming movie. It’s a smart move. She would be dumb to not pump it up. Don’t be so judgmental. I know we have our opinions and I respect them all but I have an opinion too and this is mine.

forget about the hair—-that’s an amazingly seductive dress. even though the bottom part looks like fish scales! love it!

to answer annie: because shaving your head is a drastic action. it’s commonly viewed as abnormal for a woman to do that, because most women prize their hair. so in most cases, there’s something weird going on in your head if you decide to randomly shave your head. when you see a bald woman, it’s not usually by choice (illness, etc.) the actresses shaving their heads only do it because the role calls for it. don’t you think your family/friends would think something was wrong with you if you went to a salon in the middle of the night and shaved YOUR head?

Even bald, Halle will still look beautiful. I love the dress on her.
