Mandy Moore: I'd Totally Shave My Head!

Is Mandy Moore about to pull a Miley Cyrus?

No, we don’t expect to see the sweet star stripping down to ride a wrecking ball anytime soon, but she does admit that she’s always considered chopping off her locks — it’s just a matter of giving into the impulse.

“I’ve always wanted to really cut my hair, like, super, super short. I did once,” she told PEOPLE at the launch of Emily + Meritt for PB Teen. “I’ve always thought about shaving my head too. That’s always intrigued me.”

Would husband Ryan Adams have any strong opinions about that? “I don’t think my husband would object to it!” she says. “He would totally be down for that. I think he’d think it’d probably be pretty punk!”

The star, who turned out for the launch to support her stylists Emily Current and Meritt Elliott, admits that the desire to chop off all her hair is a feeling she knows well. “I kind of feel that way a lot, but I don’t necessarily act upon it all the time. Baby steps I guess,” she says.

We’d totally love to see Moore take that big step — how about you?

I like Mandy Moore. I think that her cutting her hair super short is totally up to her. I would not pull a Miley though. If your going to shave your head, go all the way. It might look cute. Good luck if you do. Send pics.

Why would some one do that?? Is her life totally boring or what?
There are people with cancer, who loses their hair, and they dream about how would be to have a healthy and beautiful hair again. Give a little respect to these people, and if you are going to shave your hair, do it, but in silence and not making a circus out of it…

I’m actually thinking about shaving my head for the VFW’s Mane Event fundraiser! It’s a great cause, and I’ve always wanted to say I’ve had a shaved head. :P

Aww :( It’s up to her but it would be a shame in a sense, seeing as she has the most gorgeous hair!! Seems like she can pull off any color or cut…I love her though. I am always checking out her IMDB page to see if she is going to be in anything soon. Anytime I see ‘Because I Said So,’ ‘A Walk to Remember,’ or ‘License to Wed,’ I always sigh and wish she’d make more movies.
