In a recent interview with ELLE, she shared that she had always wanted to shave her head.


“I think every woman should just do it once in her lifetime. It is so liberating. It is like the world is coming off of your shoulders. It’s amazing and showers are like three minutes. I can get dressed and sweatpants look chic. And people think I’m a total badass and I’m super tough. I feel like a bit of a pit bull.”
