CHARMED star Rose McGowan had such a huge crush on a boy in her neighbourhood as a teen, she shaved her hair off to declare her love for him.

McGowan, ex-girlfriend of American shock rocker Marilyn Manson, admits she often found it difficult to attract the attention of boys because she was constantly moving around - but shaving her head helped her in no way at all.

She says, "I would enrol in schools a month before the schools ended, so it was great for my social life!

"There was a boy named CODY across the street in Colorado and he shaved his head really short. I thought he would realise my love for him if I too shaved my head... He went out with a girl with long hair!"
