Shailene Woodley posted on her Tumblr last night about donating her hair.
Woodley is preparing to play Hazel Grace Lancaster in The Fault in Our Stars, an adaptation of the book by John Green.
On her Tumblr, Woodley wrote:
As some of you may know, I will be cutting my hair off this coming weekend in order to help morph my physical body into that of the incredible Hazel Grace Lancaster—-and I couldn’t be more amped. Not only do I have the opportunity to externally shift my current establishment of self, but I have the blessed gift of donating my long locks to a wonderful organization who will then create a wig for someone in need. WHAT AN HONOR.
John Green (author of T.F.I.O.S.), Wyck Godfrey (producer of the ﬁlm), and I all decided that this could be a beautiful opportunity to rally the troops of mankind and ask for some warriors to help contribute to the cause. Any of you have 8 inches of hair to spare? Or maybe know a friend or family member that does? If so, consider JOINING THE #hairforhazel TEAM!
Woodley is donating her locks to Children with Hair Loss. It’s an admirable cause for Woodley to make a donation to the non-profit organization that is helping children.
