Jennifer Lawrence on her new pixie cut: 'My hair couldn’t get any uglier before so I chopped it all off' - EXCLUSIVE

The Hunger Games: Catching Fire actress debuted new shorter hairstyle in Q&A session with Yahoo CEO Marissa Mayer

She’s somewhat of a style chameleon – looking glamorous on the red carpet and showing off her edgier fashion choices in real life.

But Jennifer Lawrence has gone for a whole new look for The Hunger Games: Catching Fire promo trail – a pixie cut!

Jennifer Lawrence showed off her new pixie cut yesterday [Facebook] The 23-year-old Oscar winner showcased her new shorter locks in a Q&A session with Yahoo CEO Marissa Mayer in Sunnyvale, US, yesterday.

The Kentucky native – rumoured to be back together with X-Men co-star Nicholas Hoult – explained the reason for the sudden change on stage.

“I cut it earlier and it grew to like here and then it grew to that awkward gross length and I just kept putting it in a bun and I thought ‘I don’t want to do this’ so I just cut it all off,” she told the crowd.

“It couldn’t get any uglier!” she joked.

“Oh no, this isn’t how Katniss will look in the next movie,” said Jennifer.
