Bowen recently made headlines when she chopped off her long locks last month and debuted a pixie cut — with one incredible message. In an emotional revelation on Facebook, the star shared with her followers last month that when she was 4 years old, she was diagnosed with "end stage nephroblastoma," a form of pediatric cancer that nearly killed her.
She decided to share her story to inspire a young girl suffering from the disease. "I heard a story about a little girl who said she couldn't be a princess because she didn't have long hair," Bowen wrote on Facebook. "I wanted her, and others like her to know that's not what makes a princess, or a warrior, or a superhero,” Bowen explained of her new ‘do. “It's not what makes you beautiful either. It's your insides that count…even if you happen to be missing half of them."
The actress said that she had the full support of Nashville creator Callie Khouri and the network for allowing her to swap her look for her character. "If it makes even one person think twice about judging another, then in some small way, the world is better," she wrote.
