As a man clinging for dear life to the hair I still possess, I get a tad upset when I witness an actor willingly shaving him or herself bald.
But it's a powerful visual device movies use to signify personal transformation. When we see those healthy locks float to the floor like freshly fallen follicle tears, cut short in the prime of their lives, we know something huge has happened to a character.

In the new film "50/50" (Sept. 30), Joseph Gordon-Levitt takes it all off as he battles cancer. In honor of his heroic sacrifice, we've compiled a list of eight of the closest shaves in movie history. Get More »

It's no secret that lawyers have a bad reputation. Everyone knows a dozen lawyer jokes, and we all quake in terror if someone threatens to call them in. They are the boogeymen of the business world. But you know what? There are nice lawyers. Heroic ones, even. They take down big businesses, put away serial killers, and free innocents.
Not only are Hollywood lawyers always the good guys, they're always extremely hot guys. In film, if you want the most dedicated lawyer, you simply pick the best looking one in the office. Get More »
