Not one to shy away from intense roles and hands-on character development, Australian actress, Toni Colette, has shaved her head for an upcoming movie role and she showed off her new look at an event she attended with Drew Barrymore.

The 41-year-old actress is set to star in a new film called Miss You Already, which follows two women whose friendship is tested when one is struck down by illness.

The film, which is due for release next year, sees Collette play Milly, who receives a shock to the system when she is diagnosed with cancer, while Barrymore plays Collette's best friend.

Luckily for Collette, she has the head and face shape to pull off the shaved haircut and she has an edgy outfit and personality to boot. These women have also shaved their heads for movie and theatre roles and they have pulled off the look completely.
