‘The Kissing Booth’ Star JOEY KING Shaved Her Head For A New Role
For starters, we so loooooved Joey King's natural beach waves more than we did her boyfriend and The Kissing Booth co-star Jacob Elordi. Just kidding! But really, our point here is that the 19-year-old's mane is the stuff of legends so we have mixed feelings about her shaving it off.
Yes, you read that right: Joey just got herself a buzz cut. The young star is preparing for her role as Gypsy Rose Blanchard in the upcoming Hulu true crime anthology series The Act. On October 8, Joey posted a video via Instagram of her head getting shaved on set of the new project.
My name for the next 4 months, is Gypsy Rose Blanchard. This story is very disturbing and I am honored to be able to portray it. What a wild ride this will be on “The Act” @hulu Link in my bio for the exclusive interview I gave with @allure talking about the decision to shave my head for a 3rd time for a project I’m so ready to take on.
"I've never really had an attachment to my hair. I couldn't care less what happens to it," Joey—who actually had her head shaved the third time in eight years—told Allure in an exclusive interview. "No part of me was nervous or was second-guessing it. So many people would ask me, 'Are you really scared?' or 'Are you nervous?' or say, 'You're so brave.' And I'd go, 'I'm not brave, I'm just cutting my hair off.'"
We only wish we can have that same mentality when it comes to our hair!
