Although she looks mannish, in the movie Vanessa plays a pregnant, homeless teen who doesn’t care about her looks. She moves away from her abusive mother and searches her biological father. According to Vanessa, she cut her own hair for the role.
She recently spoke to Access Hollywood Live saying,
“I grabbed the scissors and started cutting my actual hair and then my director decided that he was going to grab the scissors, he grabs a chunk of my hair and just chops it.”
“I miss [my hair,] believe me, I do, but there’s nothing I can do about it.”
I’m kind of excited about seeing Gimme Shelter just to see how mannish Vanessa looks on the big screen.
