“Of course, the only people who like it are gay men and my girlfriends. Straight men across the board are not into this hair!” Michelle Williams reveals in the December issue of Elle UK. Well, sister you got that right. Give me a Mia Farrow pixie cut any day of the week and twice on Sunday. But why, then, does she keep her man-repeller coiffure? “I cut it for the one straight man who has ever liked short hair and I wear it in memorial of somebody who really loved it.”

As I’m sure you all know, Williams’ ex and the father of her six-year-old daughter, Heath Ledger, died of an overdose in 2008. As for the haircut, it’s become a part of her, as the Oscar-nominee explains: “I’ve really grown into it – I feel like myself with short hair. And it’s been a really long time since I had long hair, five years.”

Williams opened up to Elle to promote her new film, My Week with Marilyn, in which she plays tragic movie icon Marilyn Monroe, a role she found particularly challenging: “I’ve never been so hanging on a cliff waiting to hear what people think of a movie. I think after the second day, I told them they had to take away my passport because I was a flight risk.” [Telegraph]

My Week with Marilyn comes out November 23rd, but till then, feast your eyes on the official trailer:
