Lupita Nyong'o Reveals That She Shaved Her Head at 19

Lupita Nyong’o smiles for the cameras as she leaves her hotel on Thursday evening (October 16) in London, England.

The 31-year-old actress was heading to 10 Downing Street for a night out with friends – including Gone Girl actress Rosamund Pike.

“Downing Street with Rosamund Pike. #GoneGirl found at @theacademy induction,” Lupita captioned the photo of the two.

Recently, Lupita revealed that she shaved her head at 19 because of damage to her hair from chemical treatments.

“But it wasn’t on a whim — I spent days thinking about it first,” she told Redbook magazine. “Once I did it, it was very liberating, but I also felt very naked. When you feel the wind on your scalp, it’s like, Oh, my God. But I’ve kept my hair short ever since.”
