The reasoning behind Ben Affleck‘s awful Justin Bieber (circa 2009) haircut has finally been revealed: It’s for a movie! Specifically, for a project called Argo, which is set during the Iran hostage crisis of 1981. (Fun fact: That means the Biebs used to sport a cut from thirteen years before he was even born.)
Sadly, Affleck is not the only one to compromise his pretty hair for a plum role. I’m not talking about actors who suffer under itchy wigs — these are the ones who took razors and scissors to their award-winning locks and went temporarily ugly for the chance of big bucks at the box office.
