CAMERON Diaz has revealed that the short hair she debuted in January was not only an accident but that the cut led her to "burst into tears."
"There was a little misunderstanding," she explained on The Tonight Show with Jay Leno of her pre-Christmas cut. "I said, ‘Oh I just want a little bit off' ... and it went from here to here," she added, gesturing two very different hair lengths. Once Diaz saw the new do, her reaction wasn't so pleasant. "I just burst into tears and started crying, and I felt so vulnerable," she explained. "For a woman to all of a sudden have no hair, oh my god."
Diaz revealed that the incident happened when she went to a friend's house for a haircut just before the holidays. She says the friend has been cutting her hair for ages. "I felt really bad, she felt really bad, she started crying, I started crying, a couple of other people started crying," Diaz said. But soon the situation smoothed over. "I ended up writing her a few emails after, the next couple days, assuring her I wasn't going to kill her."
As Leno pointed out, it's unique that Diaz gets her haircuts from a friend (in that friend's kitchen, no less) - not at a chic Los Angeles salon. But the actress said she's been getting kitchen haircuts from this friend - and her own mother - for quite some time. She joked, "I'm in her kitchen often with the cape around my neck, going, ‘I hope we're not going to cook after that.'"
