Cameron Diaz Cried After Chopping Her Hair

Cameron Diaz recently told InStyle her short haircut was “freeing” — but she had very different words for Jay Leno Tuesday night.

“There was a little misunderstanding,” she explained on The Tonight Show with Jay Leno of her pre-Christmas cut. “I said, ‘Oh I just want a little bit off’ … and it went from here to here,” she added, gesturing two very different hair lengths.

Once Diaz saw the new do, her reaction wasn’t so pleasant. “I just burst into tears and started crying, and I felt so vulnerable,” she explained. “For a woman to all of a sudden have no hair, oh my god.”

What made the situation even more awkward was the fact that Diaz’s hairstylist happened to be a good friend. “I felt really bad, she felt really bad, she started crying, I started crying, a couple of other people started crying,” Diaz said. But soon the situation smoothed over. “I ended up writing her a few emails after, the next couple days, assuring her I wasn’t going to kill her.”

As Leno pointed out, it’s unique that Diaz gets her haircuts from a friend (in that friend’s kitchen, no less) — not at a chic Los Angeles salon. But the actress said she’s been getting kitchen haircuts from this friend — and her own mother — for quite some time. She joked, “I’m in her kitchen often with the cape around my neck, going, ‘I hope we’re not going to cook after that.'” Tell us: Would you let a friend cut your hair?

Oh gimme a break. I saw her on Leno last night and I couldn’t believe her telling him this exact story. No hair? WTF? She wore her hair like this years ago and personally, I think it looks good on her as a woman soon to be 40.

There’s always a misunderstanding with hairdressers. I really believe they operate on a completely different measurement system than everyone else. You say 1 inch off they take 3, ask for 3 inches off of long hair you’ll end up with a bob. Hairdressers just can’t seem to resist cut cut cutting.

I think she looks better with short hair.


I think she looks great with short hair. It suits her.

Cameron has a very beautiful face. She can wear her hair long or short and she’ll still look awesome. Saw her ‘Bad Teacher’ movie last night and I couldn’t stop laughing.

Oh please, all of a sudden she had no hair? Until you lose your hair from chemotherapy treatments, you have not right to make a statement like that. I like Cameron, but after this comment, she just appears to be another spoiled celebrity.
