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

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?

Shut up Andrea…She can wear her hair how she wants. Time for her to move on.

I think she looks adorable however she wears her hair.

I can’t believe this is an article. Who cares if she is growing out her hair? Seriously.

I think she’s beautiful either way, but the Pixie really suits her. With longer hair, she looks like every other blonde actress out there. The pixie makes her unique and stand out. I understand wanting a change though!

@andrea F.

why does she need to keep honouring her dead ex for the rest of her life? She’s moving on with her life, and has a new boyfriend. Even though his passing was tragic and untimely, it seems silly for her to base her entire look over him.

Somewhere, Joseph Pulitzer is rolling over in his grave right now.

Doesn’t matter how she wears her hair…she is stunning!

She’s pretty whatever the length but this comment

“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.”

Makes me wonder about her.

Tina on

I think she’d look pretty with anything.

PLEASE do. The short hair is getting tiring. Makes you look butch! Can’t wait to see her with longer hair. Try some extensions in the meantime and get a shoulder length bob for a while.
