A recent photo of Penelope Cruz with a short haircut is drawing international attention… But, don’t worry, she’s not having a Britney moment.
The 40-year-old Spanish actress, almost unrecognizable with the short pixie cut, is actually sporting a wig on the set of her latest film Ma Ma in Madrid.
Wearing an oversized purple plaid shirt and blue jeans, the Oscar winner’s signature tresses appeared to have been chopped off in the photo taken on set of the upcoming drama.
Cruz is wearing a wig for her role of Magda, a gutsy mother who battles to overcome tragedy.
She was later spotted lon set with her long locks clearly still intact.
Ma Ma marks her first project as a producer. In an interview with Variety at the 67th Annual Cannes Film Festival, Javier Bardem‘s wife revealed she wanted to produce because she wants to further her career.
“I want to build what could be my future in cinema, not always being in front of the camera,” Cruz said, “I’d also like to direct a feature, maybe 10 years from now. For now…I want to go slowly, step by step. I’m following the whole production process very closely, from the film’s inception.”
