Anne Hathaway short hairNext to Miley Cyrus -- Anne Hathaway is, like, totally the Hollywood IT girl right now. Everyone's all pumped up for the release of The Dark Knight Rises this weekend (can't wait to see that Catwoman suit!), and before we know it, her next flick Les Misérables will be in theaters. I don't know, though -- I'm still a The Princess Diaries gal at heart.

Just because Hathaway's an it girl, though, doesn't mean she's any different than the rest of us. The 29-year-old opened up on Live! With Kelly about the trauma that came with getting her hair cut for Les Mis.

"I wasn't expecting it to be such a big deal, because it was my idea. It was something I've wanted to do for a long time ... cutting my hair reduced me to, like, mental patient-level crying. I was inconsolable."

Eeeesh. Well, I can't blame her. I mean come on, if I went through with the whole pixie cut thing, I'd be a wreck too!

Like Anne, I have had long hair for as long as I can remember. I remember getting it cut two inches too short once and freaking out, so I can only imagine how it feels to really go for it, get a short style, and feel absolutely naked.

For women everywhere, hair is our security blanket. I think it takes one REALLY confident woman to go super short and rock it with pizazz. Tears or not, Anne's got one thing going for her: The short style works fabulously with her face shape. Who knows, maybe she'll get so used to it, she'll stick it out for the long run!

Have you ever chopped all of your hair off? Would you?
