15 Female Celebrities Who Have Shaved Their Heads
It's not uncommon for male stars to shave their heads once their hair stops growing, but when a female celebrity gets a buzz cut, it makes headlines.

Actress Natalie Portman famously shaved her head to play Evey in 2006 film "V for Vendetta." In fact, she shaved it herself on screen in one shot.

Director James McTeigue told USA Today at the time: "She knew the day was coming. I put three cameras on her, made sure the clippers weren't stuck, and then we shaved her head. She loved it and kept rubbing her head."

Portman, who was 24 when she went bald, proved that even women can rock a shave...

The film 'American Pie' was and is a classic. For those of you unfamiliar with the story, 'American Pie' is about four guys, from East Great Falls Michigan, that are on a quest to lose their virginity before they graduate high school.

The film takes place ten years after the gang graduated from high school. They've come back to their home town for their 10 year high school reunion and we soon discover that none of their lives have turned out the way they expected. Never saw that in a film before.

'Psych' 5.16 'Yin 3 In 2D' Review

12/23/2010 9:53am EST
In my years of writing, I've developed a theory when it comes to villains: as long as it takes to develop a good one, it can take no time at all to overuse them. Wisely, Psych has decided to conclude its ongoing Yin/Yang story with this third installment. Yet there's a tall order to fill, considering the two previous episodes have seen both Shawn's mom and his now-girlfriend Juliet in the line of fire. What could top that?

A woman named Allison (Mena Suvari) claims that she was abducted by the mysterious Mr. Yin, bringing back memories for the SBPD crew, and it isn't long before sh...

Style Watch: Celebrity Helmet Head

3/1/2010 12:25pm EST
Parker Posey
According to Urban Dictionary, the phrase "helmet head" has several definitions (some too risque to list here!) We're referring to the hair style that forms a perfect helmet shape around the head.

These stars, including Parker Posey above, are perfect examples of helmet head. Is this the new thing in Hollywood? And if so, what is going on? When was helmet head ever sexy?

Check out Lily Allen at the Brit Awards on Feb. 15. We're not sure what's worse: her unflattering hair or the heavily beaded neckline on her dress. She needs a fashion intervention!

Mena Suvari isn't afraid to experiment with her hair. She's bold. She's daring. She looks like she has a rat's nest on her head. See more photos after the jump.

The actress showed up to Mercedes-Benz Fashion Week in New York City on Saturday with most of hair her teased out, but one section is smooth and slick against her forehead (editor's note: it's a feather in her hair). We're not quite sure what kind of statement she's trying to make.

We haven't seen Mena in many films lately. But she stars in the upcoming movie "You May Not Kiss the Bride" in which a mobster tries help his daugh...
