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!

she’s not playing a 12 yr old boy–she is playing fantine from Les Miserables who sells her beautiful hair to send to her daughter and after that, has to become a prostitute to survive and ends up dying…it’s actually a wonderful role if you know the show…

The cut for sure!! The wig makes her look frumpy. The short ‘do is sexy, sassy, and HOT!

JR on

LOVE the androgyny! She looks so edgy and cool!

Dee on

They should have given an option ‘C – neither’ because neither looks good

Jester on

She looks lovely in her new ‘do’. I agree with the poster that said “with a little make up applied” she will look even better.

Jon on

They’re both nice, but the cut is cool!

K on

i really don’t like her hair. it just doesn’t suit her. i like her with longer hair. should’ve just used a wig but i don’t like her in the pixie wig either

kiwi on

It’s hair and it grows back. It’s not like she cut off a limb.

Alisha on

I think she is wonderful and I like the cut but she really does look more like a guy. She actually looks ALOT like my nephew, in complete honesty. But who cares, to each their own!

Izzie on

Her nose is too big for a short cut.
