She actually cut her hair twice, the first time in the name of charity (she donated her hair to Locks of Love) and the second, much shorter cut for a movie role.
Speaking out on Instagram, she says:
“I cut my hair for a film and there is nothing more freeing then realizing your beauty exists from within. I am not my hair. I am not my weight. I am not my skin color. I am love, I want to be love with every interaction, with every decision I make for myself, with every failure and success. You should try it. I dare you. Let go of what you think would make you more beautiful and discover you have all you need already inside.”
Power to you, Gina!
