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?

It’ll be the end of her career, just like Demi’s and Sigourney’s…

Natalie doesn’t count because she’s much younger than these women…

I don’t know about this but I say do whatever you like with your hair it is yours not personal property yours but the thing is I not sure I like the fact that shes going to shave her head to me its a desprate act for money{not to be rude}

I agree with Jane. Talking about your next movie role isn’t a desperate attempt for attention, it’s just good business. Besides, she’d be beautiful with a paper bag over her head.

Wow, someone is REALLY freaking bitter. I’ve never heard a bad think about Halle, and she’s definitely never seemed the “attention seeker” type. I can’t imagine what provoked that tirade.

Also, her breasts look AMAZING in this dress! Wow!

Also, it was really brave and honest to talk about her issues with depression. A lot of people need to hear that someone who seems to “have it all” goes through the same problems they’re going through. It helps to know other folks have been there too.

Does anyone else notice how lately she always looks like she has put on weight or may be pregnant??

Geez, SOMEbody’s hostile.
I loved Halle’s short pixie hair, so I’m excited she’s going to be sporting that again. I thought the long hair distracted from her PERFECT face.

To Faith,

A number of women shave their hair because they want to. Please don’t make assumptions for everyone else based on your limited interaction with other people outside your comfort zone. It would have been more accurate for you to preface your comment with an “in your experience”.

Halle Berry is a very talented actor. I’m surprised to see so many people knocking her for calling attention to the fact that she’s losing her locks. I think it’s good for business to tell people what’s going on especially when it comes to women and their hair. I remember when Demi/Natalie Portman/India Arie first premiered their new clean shaven heads everyone made such a big deal of it. I think Halle is just trying to avoid negative publicity by warning us first. The woman can wear whatever she likes and still look ten types of good. Stop hating haters.

I doubt this has anything to do woth attnetion getting or publicity.

Halle Berry has always come off as being very up-front and honest with her personal and professional life.

As for her appearance, I really think Halle Berry has the face, figure, and confidence to pull off the shaved head, and remain absolutely to die for gorgeous in the process.

As a hairstylist for 25 years, I’d volunteer to do it for her free….
