Actress Toni Collette (Little Miss Sunshine, United States of Tara) shaved her head (and dyed the stubble platnium blond) for her role as a cancer victim in the upcoming film Miss You Already. Collette joins a growing list of actresses willing to cut their tresses for a part. Charlize Theron shaved it all off to star in Mad Max 4: Fury Road. Other notables include: Demi Moore (G.I. Jane), Cynthia Nixon for the Pulitzer Prize-winning play Wit, and Natalie Portman gets it taken off as a form of torture in V for Vendetta. And perhaps the most memorable bald leading lady was Sigourney Weaver as Ellen Ripley in Alien 3.
Celebrities disqualified from the list include Britney Spears (it wasn’t for a role) and Anne Hathaway, who admitted to crying when her long locks were cut for Les Miserables--but she didn’t go totally bald. Hathaway does get credit for losing 25 lbs. for the role, but that's another list.
