Rosie O'Donnell Rocks a Brand New Look as She Steps out with a New Pixie Haircut
Actress and comedian Rosie O’Donnell showed up for the opening night of “Oklahoma!” on Sunday night and turned heads with her stunning new haircut.
The 57-year-old stole the show at the Rodgers and Hammerstein musical revival in New York City with a summer-ready style that took years off her appearance.
She embraced the gray and with the new short pixie-style hair and clear-framed glasses she looks great. Through the years Rosie often appeared with the same hairstyle and it's great seeing her try new things.
After her transformation, she proudly posted a picture to Twitter captioned, “#NewProfilePic,” where she showed off her new hairdo. When a fan commented, “great cut and color,” Rosie probably smiled as she replied, “that’s my grey.”
Rosie had never shied away from short hair and even rocked a similar style back in 2002 with dark brown hair while she tweeted back in 2017, “short hair rules!!”
Even years before that in 1994 Rosie donned short dark curly hair that she wore in ringlets to the 66th Academy Awards. That year she presented the award for best animated short film and best live action short film.
During a sit down with Jenna Bush Hager and Hoda Kotb on TODAY in January this year, Rosie explained how her role in the dark comedy “SMILF” helped her embrace the gray.
The comedy’s creator, Frankie Shaw joined them during the segment and Rosie explained how she had to back to her roots for her role as Tutu in the show, "Frankie said, 'Can you grow your gray out? And, I thought, 'How hard could it be?'"
As it turns out, “It takes years!” Rosie exclaimed as laughter erupted from everyone. That being said, she ended up having to dye her hair gray for the filming of the show’s pilot, because the natural gray had not fully grown out.
Undecided whether she will keep the trendy color Rosie added, "Well, I don't know. I have five kids and three of them are voting (to) go back. Three of them say, 'You look way too old."
Being the opinionated person that she is, Rosie probably gave herself some gray hair as some of her more spirited past moments resurfaced in a new book.
Recently Ramin Setoodeh released a new tell-all book, Ladies Who Punch: The Explosive Inside Story of The View, wherein the author gave an inside look into the hosts of the show, and particularly how some of them didn’t always get along, like Rosie’s feud with Barbara Walters.
