Though Michelle Williams has now long been associated with her beloved blonde pixie cut --which she once said was a tribute to the late Heath Ledger -- the Oz the Great and Powerful actress says she's now "ready" to sport long locks again.
"I think I'm ready," she tells E! News
. "It's on its way, slowly but surely."
In a memorable quote, Michelle admitted to British Elle in 2011 that Heath loved the polarizing cut. "I cut it for the one straight man who has ever liked short hair and I wear it in memorial of somebody who really loved it," she said.
But perhaps another reason she's kept her hair short for so long?
That dreaded in-between stage.
"The mid-stage is insufferable," she admits. "It's really hard on your self-esteem."
"I'm really happy to not have anything looming -- except my hair," Williams jokes about taking a break from acting. "I'm really working on my hair growing out."
