Halle Berry was roundly mocked on social media following her appearance at last week’s Oscars sporting a dubious bob hairstyle.
The Academy Award winner cut her long tresses short and opted for a choppy, home-style haircut with a short fringe.
The 54-year-old actress has finally addressed the controversy, posting a sunlit selfie revealing her long brown hair cascading past her shoulders — a stark contrast to the short, choppy bob with bangs she was spotted wearing on the red carpet just days prior.
“Oscar bob… “I’m joking,” she captioned the image.
Thus, that bob was a forgery.
Fans were divided after Berry confirmed that she had not cut her hair, despite apparent evidence from her hairstylist.
“Never do that again,” one individual wrote.
“Certainly! I wasn’t going to believe it for a second!” additionally.
“You look stunning in any hairstyle,” another added.
Berry’s audacious hairstyle sparked numerous memes on Oscars night, drawing comparisons to Josh Harnett’s shaggy crop and Fleabag’s regrettable haircut.
Earlier this week, the actress joined the fray by retweeting a silly video mocking her bob.
While this particular hairstyle was not authentic, Berry has experimented with a variety of looks throughout the years, from her iconic early-aughts pixie cut to sleek, straight strands.
love you guys and your memes. xx
