Catherine Zeta-Jones's Blunt Bangs: Are You Loving Her Look?

We’ve been fooled by bangs before (clip-ins are so popular, as you know from Kim Kardashian and Mindy Kaling), but no need to be skeptical this time: Catherine Zeta-Jones‘s fringe is the real deal. The actress debuted her new hair look for the first time on the carpet Thursday, and we almost didn’t recognize the star.

That’s probably because Zeta-Jones didn’t go for a subtle side bang or some piecey wisps. She went for a heavy, blunt straight across style that covers her eyebrows (and almost her eyeballs). It also looks like she also trimmed few inches from her long dark brown strands. The actress kept the rest of her beauty look simple with a brick-red lip and soft smoky eye to go with her plunging black dress.

And the star’s hair isn’t the only buzz surrounding her right now. She was joined on the carpet (for opening night of The Library in NYC) by husband Michael Douglas, marking the first time the the couple has attended an event together since deciding to re-evaluate their marriage last June.

“It is so easy to just give up,” a longtime family friend tells PEOPLE. “But they wanted to put in the work. I’m really happy for them.”

We hope the new look celebrates a new chapter for the actress. Are you a fan of her fringe? Share your thoughts below.

These comments are funny on here. Stress?? How does anyone on here know about that! She is quite vain as I have first hand knowledge of this. She is looking her age & trying to look younger! Not a crime just a fact. We all know she has had work done in the past. Frankly, this is about as interesting as when “Jen” Aniston was reported to have gained 5 lbs! Lol, who cares! The best thing a woman can have is a great looking, highly respected man on her arm. NOT TRUE here as we all know what a sleeze Douglas is. He lost his looks long ago & she is not the nicest person in Hollywood. But then again neither is he so they are perfect together. I agree with Monica, she needs a serious stylist ! She also needs a change in attitude as our minds are powerful & the nicest people are FAR MORE attractive than the not so nice.

Long side bangs would’ve looked better. This style does nothing for her.

She’s an incredibly beautiful woman but this is not a good look for her…. definitely makes her look older and doesn’t showcase that fabulous face of hers very well. Otherwise, I’d say she is aging gracefully.

Have fun growing them out! Bangs are the biggest P.I.T.A.
