The young star boldly shaved all of their head off and looked fantastic. They said they cut it for a role and ended up loving it. They also said that less hair helped them feel more comfortable in more than just their looks.
“Shaving my head was wild. I felt a sense of complete neutrality. It was so freeing,” they said in 2018. “This summer I came out as gay, and I must say, having no hair made me feel even more comfortable with my gender and sexuality. My hair is still short, but I let it grow out a bit to give myself more options. Sometimes it’ll be a more masculine look with little-boy curls, or I’ll part it in the middle and slick it down to look more feminine. The best part: It’s totally up to me.”
