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?

I’m not sure about the going bald thing, but if looks are anything to go by and you’ve seen this full-sized photo, you’d almost wonder if she has reached her goal of becoming a mom in about 6 months or so. Hair does tend to fall out during pregnancy, so I wonder..I wonder..My prayers are with Halle that her dreams become reality soon in the baby department. She and Gabriel would make the most beautiful baby ever!! :-)

What is the big deal that she’s gonna shave her head and that she told everyone about it??? It’s called promotion and ALL the actors do it. Halle is one of the most beautiful women in Hollywood, NATURALLY. I saw a pic of what it would look like on Extra and it was ok. She’s gorgeous and YAY she’s gonna have short hair again when it starts to grow back. She looks GREAT with short her,long hair too but I prefer short. It shows off her bone structure more.

No it won’t be a good look. Why would any woman want to be bald. It looks awful!

I miss Halle’s short hair so I’m stoked she’s doing this! She’s so beautiful she can pull off not hiding behind hair.

Anybody remember the Halle Berry that got away with a slap on the wrist for her hit and run? That’s all I think of when I hear of Halle Berry. Not her Oscar, not her Revlon endorsement, not her star. Her Hit and Run. I’m w/you, J.

I love Halle, short hair, long hair, bald. It makes no difference to me. She’ one of those rare women who doesn’t need hair to be seen as attractive. Is there some kind of a conspiracy that Hollywierd bombshells must have long hair down to there to be attractive? I say no, hair is superfical at best.

I think it’s quite daring for her to do this- most women, like the one I suppose she’s portraying, are too caught up in their looks and too attached to their appearances and beauty products. Halle looked great before with short hair and I’m sure she will again!

Of course she’ll look awesome, what does hair have to do with it? I also think that Natalie Portman looks incredible with the short hair0 a little bit of regrowth from when she shaved it. I personally think she should have kept it shorter…looks amazing!

Halle will still look beautiful without the hair. I believe it’s daring to make a move like that, even if it’s for a movie. I think shaving your head for a movie role is much more better than what some of these celebs do for movies. Gain weight, loose weight, loose weight, gain weight for a movie role…they are constantly putting their bodies at harm, IMO. Hair is hair, it’ll grow back, Halle can always wear a wig if she feels uncomfortable.

My friend battled breast cancer as well Ashley, she recently lost all her hair through chemotherapy, and she’s learned to embrace her beautiful image, with or without hair.
