Shock bald look for Sex and the City Star

She was made famous for her role as the red head in one of the most successful TV shows that also featured Minolo Blahnik’s, New York City and a lot of sex.

Now Cynthia Nixon has swapped the cosmopolitan cocktail for a razor and has shaved her head completely for her new role.

The 45-year-old is playing a cancer patient and poetry professor Vivian Bearing in the play, which opens on January 26 at the Samuel J. Friedman Theatre.

Cynthia said: 'I thought it was kind of gonna be no muss-no fuss, but I have to shave it every day!

'It's got kind of a five o'clock shadow, and you don't want to go on with that,' she continued.

'I was always kind of curious to see what it would be like. I like it; I don't think I'm gonna keep it forever.'

The story-line is close to the actress’s heart as she discovered she had the disease in 2006. She had a lumpectomy and radiation - but no chemotherapy - and continues to take the drug Tamoxifen, which blocks the actions of estrogen and is used to treat and prevent some types of breast cancer.

It’s refreshing to see stars like this bare all and still look fabulous; bald is beautiful.
