Anne Hathaway: 'Mental Patient Level Crying Over Haircut'

Anne Hathaway: 'Mental Patient Level Crying Over Haircut'

Anne Hathaway walks hand-in-hand with her fiance Adam Shulman as they take an afternoon stroll on Thursday (July 12) in Brooklyn, New York.

The 29-year-old actress made an appearance on Live! with Kelly this week and talked about cutting her hair for her role in the upcoming movie musical Les Miserables.

“I wasn’t expecting it to be such a big deal because it was my idea. It’s something I’ve wanted to do for such a long time and I knew it was something that the character did, so I offered it to the director and he said yes,” Anne said (via the San Francisco Chronicle).

“Then, as it got closer, I just thought, ‘Oh, well, I can’t really take it back now,’” Anne added. “I’ve done back flips out of windows, I’ve jumped off of buildings and yet cutting my hair reduced me to, like, mental-patient-level crying. I was inconsolable.”

    Yes, she does look so much better with long hair. Her head is small and with short hair it accentuates how big her eyes, nose, and mouth are. Massage your scalp. Eat lots of protein. Eventually, it will grow back.

  • kara

    Yeah, you could tell she wasn’t comfortable with it. It looks fine, though! And it’s just hair. It’ll grow back.

  • Shawna

    I find her statement about mental-patient-level offensive. People who have mental disabilities have real problems that they are working very hard to control and comparing that to distress over a haircut is absolutely ridiculous and offensive.

  • Katherine

    I understand what she meant. I have long hair and I get nervous every time I go get my hair trimmed. If I got my hair cut that short I think I would have been in shock too.

  • loverducky

    I didn’t like her short hair at first, but now that it has grown out a bit, I really like it! It looks very chic on her, I think.

  • solecito

    I think, we women are very attached to our hair! It’s stupid, but it’s the true.

  • kathryn

    this is going to sound harsh but she looks like audrey hep burn’s homely looking younger sister, she was much more gorgeous with long hair.

  • DanaJ

    @Shawna I find offensive your calling this absolutely harmless words “offensive”

  • Isabelle

    Get a grip. I’ m bipolar. Which makes me an actual mental patient, and even I can take what she said as a joke.

    As for her hair…long, please.

  • Amy

    Anne looks great she is gaining weight and her hair is growing. I like the short cut, but her fiance is another thing! She can do so much better!!!! I hope she figures him out before she marries him!!!

  • Kilem

    It IS offensive and disparages the struggles of those living with mental health issues. Hair is really not THAT important. It’s the same as when someone ignorantly says that they are “schizo” about something. Schizophrenia is a serious and usually permanent disease.

  • V

    @Isabelle: Oh please. Everyone is “Bipolar” now a days, when really, they’re just batsh*t crazy attention wh*res.
    I take your comment with a fist full of salt.

  • nikki

    anne is so down to earth and of course there has to be some a**hole who takes her words out of context.

  • florence

    @Shawna: people who find everything offensive are so tiring, learn to take a joke please.

  • Bee

    I think she kinda works it tbh, but there’s no doubt she still looks better with her long, brown locks

  • knees

    She looks like an attractive boy. Long hair please.

  • Morgan

    I thought she seemed really self absorbed over hair. Then I read your message and thought …Oh okay I understand more..of course I’ve always had short hair because I have thin baby hair. =D I guess I’m just jealous of her hair.

  • loverducky

    I think that calling that offensive is an overreaction. I as well suffer from a myriad of mental health issues, and in no way took offence to this. It does, like one commenter said, bother me when people use terms like “schizo” or “ocd” as adjectives to describe themselves, when they have no idea, but I wouldn’t even necessarily call that offensive..just very irritating.
