Claire Foy is hopeful her edgy haircut will grow out into something she loves again.
The Crown star swapped her shoulder-length locks for a cropped do when she was cast as Lisbeth Salander in The Girl in the Spider's Web.
The film, which began hitting cinemas in October (18), wrapped filming in April, and Claire has been growing her hair ever since.
"I loved it at the beginning and then I went through a strange period where I wanted to shave my own head," she said of the style, reports Metro.
"Now I'm out the other side and hopefully it's going to grow into something which I love again."
The film received mixed reviews from critics, though Claire insisted in a recent interview with i newspaper that she has made peace with the "judgement" and "criticism" that would come with taking on the role, which has also been played by Noomi Rapace and Rooney Mara in previous versions of Stieg Larsson's Millennium novel series.
The 34-year-old also outlined to the newspaper how she had to bulk up.
"It was very physical," she said. "I had to get muscles that I never had before in order to look right."
However, she was careful not to make Lisbeth waif thin.
"I don't want to project that image - I don't think she has to be emaciated. I don't know why she would have to be," she added.
