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...

Several celebs who were unable to get into the Academy Awards did the second best thing - they attended the 21st Annual Elton John AIDS Foundation Academy Awards Viewing Party at the Pacific Design Center.

Heidi Klum made quite a statement in a gold beaded dress that revealed massive cleavage. We think her low-cut gown may have crossed the line just a little bit. Rapper Nicki Minaj also showed off her curves in a white strapless mini dress.

Miley Cyrus, on the other hand, looked elegant in a simple white gown with a cut out in the back. "Vampire Diaries" star Nina Dobrev also stunned in a...

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...
