She's known for her long, fiery red hair, so that's why we were so surprised when Jessica Chastain sported a daring new haircut on the set of her new film, The Disappearance of Eleanor Rigby. We spotted her sharp bob and then later found out it was a very convincing wig! But it got us thinking about all the female stars who have had The Chop in the name of character acting. Natalie Portman was one of the first young stars to shave her head back in 2005 for V for Vendetta, and Charlize Theron recently shaved hers for Mad Max. Anne Hathaway is currently donning the pixie after cutting her long brown lock for Les Misérables, and there was also Kristen Stewart's commitment to playing Joan Jett in The Runaways.
