"I did it for a film, for a part, and also I thought for my life it would be a good change," she told Us Weekly at the 30th Breeders’ Cup World Championships music fest in Arcadia, Calif., on Saturday, Nov. 2. "We're always trying to make our look different for different parts we play and I've been having that long hair for awhile and I gradually went shorter."

She added: "About a month ago I had a bob. Jonathan [Hanousek] and I, my hairstylist, I just said, 'cut it!'"

Chenoweth, 45, revealed the new 'do via Instagram Friday, the same week both Pam Anderson and Jennifer Hudson showed off their new chic pixies.
