Olivia Cooke Says Shaving Her Head For 'Dying Girl' Made Her Sad & Invisible

Olivia Cooke meets back up with Thomas Mann at the Me And Earl And The Dying Girl premiere held at the Sunshine Landmark on Wednesday night (June 10) in New York City.

The twosome were all over the place earlier in the day promoting their new film, with RJ Cyler and Katherine Hughes, plus Connie Britton and Molly Shannon.

Octavia Spencer is also pictured at the premiere.

Speaking with Nylon, Olivia chatted about the looks she received after she shaved her head for the role.

“Walking down the street [when I had hair], I didn’t realize how aware I was of the looks I got from men and how that made me feel. Once that was taken away, it made me sad because I felt invisible, and I didn’t feel attractive or desired, which is a weird thing that I wasn’t really aware of anyway,” she shared.

Olivia continued, “People aren’t inclined to talk to you—mainly men—because there’s not a lot in it for them, you’re not their ‘type.’ It didn’t make me feel liberated or free or anything like that, which people said it would. It made me feel really angry that beauty standards for women are just so inaccessible.”

Me And Earl And The Dying Girl is out in theaters TODAY!

FYI: Olivia wore a Christopher Kane dress, Giuseppe Zanotti shoes, AS29 jewels and a Corto Moltedo clutch. Connie is wearing Jerome C. Rousseau shoes.

Connie Britton Takes the Plunge For 'Austin Way'

Connie Britton shows some cleavage on the cover of Austin Way‘s latest issue, which is out on newsstands now!

On growing as an actress: “Friday Night Lights was such a perfect and complete experience, so after that, I did go through a little bit of a crisis. I thought, ‘What am I going to do now? How am I going to top that?’ And the answer was that whatever I did next, I wanted it to feel challenging, like I was stepping out of my comfort zone. American Horror Story, which I did in between FNL and Nashville, did that for me because it was such a different genre. When Nashville came along, I thought, I’m going to be stretching some new muscles; here we go. It’s scary to do that, and it’s been challenging and rewarding- that’s what happens when you take risks.”

On what she misses most about Austin: “Everything. I love Austin. I’m a huge Austin fan. I love that there’s music everywhere, and it’s so laid-back, nonchalant, and creative. It’s a great community. It feels very inclusive. The food is great… I could go on. [Laughs] I get back here whenever I can- [especially] for music festivals.”

On what’s next for her: “It takes 10 months out of the year to shoot Nashville, so I only have a couple of free months over the summer. I have been creating and producing a show [for Showtime Networks] that I’m hoping to do as my next project. I’m also a Goodwill Ambassador for the United Nations. Since I majored in Chinese in college and studies in China for a while, people would say, ‘What are you doing with that? Are you going to be an ambassador?’ [Laughs] So in many ways, it’s a dream come true. I’ve always wanted to parlay the work I’m doing into something that can be useful on a larger scale.”
