Kate Hudson showed fans how to lose your hair in 10 seconds on Tuesday, when she was spotted sporting a new buzz cut on the Los Angeles set of her new movie, Sister.
The 38-year-old actress shaved off her famous long blonde locks for the flick, which comes from Australian singer/songwriter Sia — who also wrote and is directing the project.
It’s the most drastic haircut Hudson has had since she found breakout success in 2000’s Almost Famous.
The actress took to her Instagram shortly after the news broke to debut the look, thanking Sia for the “freedom” and calling her “our beautiful director.”
It also makes the Fabletics mogul look even more like her mother Goldie Hawn, who rocked a longer pixie cut in the ’60s and ’70s while she starred in projects like and Rowan & Martin’s Laugh-In and Cactus Flower.
Of course, Hudson isn’t the first actress in Hollywood to shave her head for a role.
In addition to Hudson, Sister stars Sia’s dance muse and frequent collaborator Maddie Ziegler
“I was too embarrassed to tell anyone I wanted to make a movie because I thought it would be seen as a vanity project because I was a singer,” the “Cheap Thrills” songstress revealed about the feature film during a Q&A at Venice Days in 2015, the Hollywood Reporter reported. “And then last year, after I made the ‘Chandelier’ video, I realized that I was pretty good at directing, so I felt a little bit braver.”
She took a stab at the script too, turning to children’s book author Dallas Clayton to help her flesh out a one-page story she had written eight years prior.
