Long hair is still on
Halle Berry’s Oscar bob was a joke
When Halle Berry showed up with a supposedly new hairstyle at the Oscars last week, the outcry was great. The Hollywood star has to listen to a lot of ridicule for the short haircut. Now it becomes clear: The whole thing was just fun.
There was great astonishment when Halle Berry appeared on the red carpet with a completely new look at this year’s Academy Awards. The actress sported a short, edgy bob with raspy bangs – an unfamiliar hairstyle that was definitely remembered. Now it turns out, however: Her “Oscar Bob” was “just a joke”, as the 54-year-old writes about her latest Instagram post, including a crying laughing emoji.
The Oscar winner shared a selfie of herself, which she shows with a long, brown mane and a grin on her face. There is no trace of the Oscar bob, which was apparently just a wig. Fans and followers are sometimes surprised, but others would have guessed it. “Never do that again,” says one person in the comments. Another writes: “Of course! I didn’t believe it for a second.
Berry’s hairstyle went viral on social media shortly after the Academy Awards on April 25 – but not just in a good way. Many users made mocking comparisons, including to Johnny Depp in the role of Willy Wonka from the movie “Charlie and the Chocolate Factory” or to the character Edna Mode from “The Incredibles”. With her Instagram post, however, Berry shows once again that she takes such fan comments with humor.
