There are actors and actresses, and then there are hardcore actors and actresses that will do pretty much anything in pursuit of perfecting their roles. Robert de Niro put on a ton of weight for Raging Bull, Christian Bale turned into a skeleton for The Machinist and Karen Gillan sacrificed a beautiful head of hair in order to play the role of the bald Nebula in Marvel’s Guardians of the Galaxy. What’s more, she recorded the entire process of losing her ginger mane. Check out the video below and share a little of Gillan’s pain.
Damn, that was about a decade’s worth of hair gone in a matter of minutes. Though I have to say that she did look pretty cute with the pixie cut near the end of the process. I’m sure she’ll have no problem looking just as adorable as ever in future roles. Unless she ends up playing another bald super hero and has to take it all off once more…
