We’ve been on Ellen Page hair watch for a few weeks now. The star has been sporting a short pixie style on set of her new film Freeheld, and at first glance, we dismissed it as a wig. Then Lena Dunham posted a photo of Page (a participant in Dunham’s Planned Parenthood movement) on Instagram, and we started to second guess that whole wig theory. Turns out, her cute new cut is very real.
Page lopped off her super-long brunette strands into a shaggy pixie style for her role in the upcoming indie drama, her rep confirms to PEOPLE. The 27-year-old actress plays Julianne Moore‘s character’s car-mechanic girlfriend in the film based on the true story of a New Jersey police detective (Moore) who battles for pension benefits after she’s forced to stop working due to a terminal illness.
I’ve updated the Ellen Pages Gallery with new scans from her W cover.
