Anne Hathaway Hair
Splash News Online; X17 Online

Anne Hathaway‘s short cut came as a shock to many when she unveiled the look in London over the weekend (left). But it’s not the first time the star has sported a close crop for a role: in 2010, the actress wore a wig (right) to play Emma Morley in the movie One Day.

Though Hathaway’s One Day wig was quite feminine — almost Audrey Hepburn-esque — her new haircut is a bit grittier. It has a darker backstory, too; it was chopped for her role in Les Misérables, in which she plays Fantine, a single mother who sells her hair and turns to prostitution to feed her child. Perhaps the seriousness of the role is behind the actress’s decision to go short?

Hathaway is pretty enough to pull off any look, but we want to know what you prefer — her short cut or her pixie wig. Vote in our poll below!

Maybe she’s playing a 12yr old boy in her next film?

she looks great. It will grow back. I think you should always take a risk and do something drastic. Love long hair but love short hair too and glad I never been stunted to only have one.SHE ROCKS in the short do

Ashleigh on

So because she has short hair she looks like a boy? Get real. She looks amazing, no need to slam someone just because you don’t like it.

I think once she glams it up with some makeup. I think that it looks severe now because the whole package is not together

i think she’s gorgeous with whatever hair length she sports!

Bill Stewart on

While the wig looks better, the cut is more appropriate for the role. If your at all familiar with Les Mis, Fantine is a poor person in 1800’s Paris.

Guest on

She can not pull of that short of a hair cut.

skg on

She looks good either way, but I think the expression on her face sells the wig. Might like her cut better, if she were smiling.

The real deal on Anne looks great, not everywoman can pull that style off!!



Her real hair cut looks really cool and edgy.
