Michelle Williams: 'I'm Really Working on Growing My Hair Out!'

Michelle Williams Longer Hair

Anne Hathaway and Miley Cyrus may be totally committed to their short haircuts, but one famously gamine star is ready to ditch her pixie: Michelle Williams.

“I think I’m ready,” Williams, 32, told E! News at a press junket for her film Oz: The Great and Powerful. “It’s on its way, slowly but surely.”

Don’t expect rapid change from the star, who’s had her signature platinum short cut since debuting the look at Cannes in 2010: “I might want it now, but I’ll have it in three years,” she joked of the slow growing-out time.

In fact, that in-between stage is why she’s waited so long to start the transition. “The mid-stage is insufferable,” she said. “It’s really hard on your self-esteem.”

We have to say, she’s managing it quite nicely, showing off a punky asymmetrical look Wednesday outside Late Night With David Letterman. And since her moviemaking schedule is clear for a bit, she joked that she’s ready to devote herself to the new length. “I’m really happy to not have anything looming — except my hair,” she told E! “I’m really working on growing my hair out!”

Tell us: Are you looking forward to seeing Williams with longer hair (here’s a refresher pic) or do you prefer her pixie?

Beautiful either way! She has said before that Heath (Ledger) liked the short hair on her so maybe she’s decided that it’s time to move forward from that.

I giggle reading the comments that she looks prettier and softer because of the longer hair, i agree that she looks prettier and softer but I don’t think it’s because of her hair, I think it’s because she found love.

Aw that’s too bad! I think short hair really suits her! I hardly remember what she looks like with long hair!

Short hair, for sure!

She has the perfect face for a pixie cut, I can see why she kept it so long. Hope she has a speedy grow out and doesn’t go for extensions!

Vera on

She looks cute in short hair,but like her better with longer hair.

She looks so adorable in short hair!

Cinty on

I thought all those people use hair extensions.

Mary on

She is tiny and can wear her hair that short, I like it a little longer though.

Tiffany on

I hope she still keeps it shorter because it looks good on her.
