In an appearance on Today on Thursday morning, Stewart told Savannah Guthrie and Willie Geist that she always wanted to shave her head, but once the director of her new film Underwater brought up the idea of getting a buzz cut, the Twilight alum finally had an excuse. Plus, the dramatic hair cut made practical sense for her new role.
In Underwater, Stewart plays a mechanical engineer who works on an oil rig that's at the bottom of the ocean floor. She justified the haircut by saying, "I'm not going to be able to have touch-ups once I have the helmet on. I must shave my head."
"I wanted to do this for a long time for novel sake. At some point in your life you want to be able to do that," Stewart said as she rubbed her head."It feels amazing, I just want to head bang all day."
