Actress Alexandra Ship ditched her long tresses for the role of a lifetime. She’s set to play Storm in X-Men: Apocalypse and she’s bringing a fresh and bolder look to the character previously played by Halle Berry. Shipp recently explained to Elle magazine her journey to a shaved head for the upcoming film:

“But it was a beautiful surprise, for me. I just have always wanted to shave my 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.”
