Anne Hathaway Hair
Splash News Online; X17 Online

Anne Hathaway‘s short cut came as a shock to many when she unveiled the look in London over the weekend (left). But it’s not the first time the star has sported a close crop for a role: in 2010, the actress wore a wig (right) to play Emma Morley in the movie One Day.

Though Hathaway’s One Day wig was quite feminine — almost Audrey Hepburn-esque — her new haircut is a bit grittier. It has a darker backstory, too; it was chopped for her role in Les Misérables, in which she plays Fantine, a single mother who sells her hair and turns to prostitution to feed her child. Perhaps the seriousness of the role is behind the actress’s decision to go short?

Hathaway is pretty enough to pull off any look, but we want to know what you prefer — her short cut or her pixie wig. Vote in our poll below!

Actually, she is playing Fantine in Les Mis so the short hair is completely appropriate. And good for her for taking the role so seriously. What a role!

I like her hair LONG only and not short.

If I were an actress with long hair and I were playing a part that required my hair to be short or dude-like, I would insist on wearing a short pixie or dud-like wig. I would refuse to get my hair cut for that part.

its funny cuz i always wanted to cut my hair short, well not that short, actually shorter, to see what i looked like and also just to cut it really short, that way it would grow back longer and thicker, oh well.
