Is Halle Berry Really Going Bald?

04/11/2007 at 04:30 PM ET

She’s one of Hollywood’s great beauties, but for her next role, Halle Berry says she’s going to take it all off — her head. That’s right, the Oscar winner recently told PEOPLE that she’s going to shave off her gorgeous locks for an upcoming role (to play a woman who loses her hair and is forced to see much of how her identity was tied to her looks). “For [Nappily Ever After], I am going to shave my hair, so I’ll have short hair again very soon.” And beautiful female stars breaking out the clippers for their craft is nothing new: Demi Moore did it for G.I. Jane, Natalie Portman shaved for V for Vendetta and Sigourney Weaver went chrome-domed for Aliens 3. We say, if anyone can pull off a shaved head, it’s Halle. Tell us: What do you think of Halle shaving her head? Will it be a good look?

The first thing you have to realize is her long hair is just a weave or extension, remember her in Bond, nearly bald and then over night she has long hair. If you figure she is cutting the hair from Bond off, your talking what, 1 to 3 inches, big deal.

what I want to know is how did she get her breasts to stay like that in a halter?

Also, it’s weird that this is viewed as a “publicity stunt.” The news came from an interview Halle did with People.com where she answered people’s questions. She was answering someone’s question about whether or not she would return to short hair, and it seems pretty natural to say, “Yeah, actually I’m going to for a movie.”

Hey, for J…it is not fair. Halle is B-E-A-U-T-I-F-U-L. I mean, come on, she is 41 and she looks freakingly amazing. No jobs done. She doesn’t play the victim. She is human. It happens to us , too, don’t you think? I think she is just gorgeous. About the bald thing, she looks much better with short locks, my opinion.

Return to short hair ??? If you remove her rug, she never left it. Don’t get me wrong, Halle Berry is a good actress. I just don’t like the fact that things like this mislead young people who don’t know better. Peoples hair doesn’t grow a foot over night, and breasts don’t go from an “A” to a “C” or “D” from going to the gym for a week.

Like I said before, and some of you too, this is for a movie, from a book of someone’s actual life going ons.

Nowadays when Hollywood makes a movie of this type, they stick to what actually happens, or as in the case of “G.I. Jane” might happen. They try to stick to “reality” not fiction — any more. “Reality” brings in more ‘bucks’.

The whole point is she, “Halle Barry”, made the decission to shave her head for the movie. Too that, she is controling what will happen after that ….. Career wise, I really do not think it will harm her’s. She has shown she can handle any image present to her for a movie, and this one is just another image presented to her.

SO, WHAT IF A SHE, OR ANY OTHER WOMAN, WANTS TO SHAVE THEIR HEAD ….. WHY IS IT A BIG DEAL! IT IS ONLY HAIR AND IT WILL GROW BACK. BESIDES, UNLIKE MEN, WOMEN LIKE TO CHANGE THEIR HAIR CUT, OR STYLE, AS OFFEN AS THEY CAN. IT IS PART OF THEIR LIVES TO KEEP MEN OFF BALANCE.

TRUTHFULLY, HOW MANY WOMEN, HERE, WOULD CONSITER SHAVING THEIR HEAD, IF NOTHING WOULD BE SAID ABOUT IT (LIKE WHEN A MAN DECIDES TO SHAVE HIS)?

HOW MANY OF YOU LADIES WOULD SHAVE YOUR HEAD, IF OTHERS MADE DONATIONS FOR YOU TO DO IT FOR A CHARITY? JUST SEARCH THE MANY CHARITY EVENTS FOR CANCER ….. YOU WILL FIND THERE IS A YEARLY EVENT, HELDS ALL OVER, CALLED “ST. BALDRICK’S DAY”, WHERE MEN AND WOMEN COLLECT DONATIONS, TO fight CHILDHOOD CANCER, TO BUZZ OR SHAVE THEIR HEAD.

IS THERE ANY THING DIFFERENT IN A WOMAN DOING THAT, OR A WOMAN JUST SHAVING HER HEAD BECAUSE SHE WANTS TO, NO MATTER HER REASON(S)!

Kind of funny when you think of it. Demi Moore shaved her head bald in G.I. Jane and Hallie just did a movie with Demi’s ex. Yes, I’m full of useless info. Anyways, is it really ness that she shave her head?

Is anyone reading the blurb before blogging? It says that Halle is cutting her hair for her “NEXT MOVIE ROLL”! Maybe some people should sharpen up their reading skills instead of their poisonous tongues! Halle Berry is beautiful any which way!

if somebody had 2 it should be her

Halle cutting her hair, or her weave ? Halle is a pretty girl but I have read in more than one magazine all that long hair which she is “cutting” is just a weave anyway. I would be far more impressed if she took down all that fake hair , and said this is the real me. Young women look to celebreties as role models and with so many sporting weaves or extensions it’s telling young women that they need to be fake to be pretty.
