Cumming Shaves Off His Hair To Shed Memories Of Role He Hated

Scottish actor ALAN CUMMING is sporting a new shaven-headed look after chopping off his hair in a bid to escape a movie role he didn't enjoy.

The X2 star is refusing to say which of his latest movie inspired his drastic change of image, but admits he was so keen to ditch the look, he visited the barber the day after filming wrapped.

He says, "I had this long hair for this film... and I had all different colours all year and my hair was like CHER's old cast-off wigs.

"And this character I just played, I just so didn't want to be reminded of him anymore, so I just shaved it.

"I actually love it because it's just another part of your body to touch that you never normally get the chance to."
