Ginnifer Goodwin 'Legalizes' Her Hair

Ginnifer Goodwin takes her short hair seriously. So seriously, in fact, that she’s made it a legal issue. The actress tells InStyle she was tired of getting permission from studios in order to chop her locks (just like Emma Watson), so she consulted with her lawyer. “I now have a wig clause written into every one of my contracts,” she says, explaining that she can cut her hair whenever — and however — she likes. So when she recently decided to go for an even shorter look, complete with shaved sides, it wasn’t hesitation holding her back — it was her bosses. “It didn’t take any courage,” Goodwin says of her cutting her hair. “It purely took getting permission from HBO and the folks behind Big Love. They owned every hair on my head!” But just because Goodwin sports a shorter do doesn’t mean she’ll be limited in the roles she can play — she’ll just slip on a wig instead. “I find it hard to express myself when I’m growing out a very bad character haircut,” she explains. “As long as I can wear a wig, I can be any character and in real life I can be myself.” –Kim Peiffer

@Ally: I absolutely agree with you. The short hair really brings out her face and I love those ears. I call those “nibbling ears”.
