Michelle Williams is finally growing her hair out, plus the adorable (and sad) reason why she kept it short.
Michelle Williams has finally decided to grow her hair out, after years of rocking a pixie cut. The Oscar nominated actress, 32, is growing her hair out, according to E! news. “I think I’m ready,” the Oz the Great and Powerful star, whose locks do indeed appear longer, said. “It’s on its way, slowly but surely.”
Michelle admits she’s kept it short longer than she had planned on, because of what a pain it is to grow out. “That’s why I’ve stayed with short hair for so long,” Jason Segel’s girlfriend said. “The mid-stage is insufferable. It’s really hard on your self-esteem.”
Daughter Matilda, 8, is ready for her mom to grow her hair out. “What Matilda would love is for her mom to grow out the cropped hair, though that’s unlikely to happen any time soon,” Williams told ELLE back in November 2011.
What prompted Michelle to cut her hair short to start with? Matilda’s late father, Heath Ledger. “Straight men across the board are not into this hair!” Williams told ELLE at the time. “I cut it for the one straight man who has ever liked short hair and I wear it in memorial of somebody who really loved it.” Ledger died of a drug overdose in January 2008 at age 28.
Now that she’s got a new man in her life, it’s time to enjoy long hair!
