Anyone can stop torturing themselves: Halle Berry’s controversial 2021 Oscar hairstyle was fake.
The 54-year-old actress posted a sunlit selfie on Friday, showing her long auburn hair cascading over her shoulders, a stark contrast to the short, torn bean with bangs she’d been seen swinging on the red carpet just days earlier.
“Oscar Bob … I’m kidding,” the photo said.
Fans had mixed reactions after Berry confirmed that she had not actually cut her hair, despite apparent evidence from her hairdresser.
“Never do that again,” one man wrote.
“Of course! I didn’t believe for a second!”
“You look great with any style of hair,” said another.
The daring “Berry” inspired many memes on the night of the Oscars, making comparisons with the shaggy vintage of Josh Harnett and this unfortunate hairstyle from “Fleabag”.
Earlier this week, the actress even joined the action, uploading a silly video that joked about her beans.
While this particular hair change was not the real deal, Berry experimented with a wide variety of styles over the years, from her iconic pixie at the beginning of the outs, cut to elegant, straight strands.
