Renee Zellweger Gets a Hair Do-Over -- in the Dining Room

04/23/2010 at 01:41 PM ET


It was more than just a fresh spring hairstyle that Renée Zellweger had in mind when she chopped off her hair into a dramatic pixie do. “It was sort of a job hazard sort of thing,” Zellweger told PEOPLE at the Tribeca Film festival premiere of her film My Own Love Song last night, referring to the tress-stress that actresses undergo to change their looks with each new role. “It’s not worth keeping after a while,” she explained. “It had to go. Shed the old.” To get the job done right, she turned to hair-cutter to the stars Lori McCoy-Bell. “She works on sets, cuts hair in trailers on films,” Zellweger says. “She cut it in the dining room. She was very brave. She just grabbed chunks of it, twisted it and shredded.” The end result left the Oscar winner smiling. “She did a great job—I was just really glad that the other stuff was gone.” –Katherine Kluznik Rentmeester, reporting by Jeffrey Slonim

I love it! She’s always looked cute and sassy with a short cut. I always had very long hair all my life to look beautifull and lushious… then after my divorce in 1999 i got a very short boy cut but cute and feminine. I look so adorable I’d never grow my hair long again. AND it’s so easy to care for!

I love short hair, it has to fit the person’s personality!!! I had a pixie cut for years and wore those cute barrettes and got soooo many compliments. Renee looks as sweet as always. The only thing with short hair is you have to cut it every 4 weeks. So cute!!!

What the heck happened to her? She looks so weird. Why is she always squinting? She was so cute and normal in Jerry McGuire.
