“It’s heartbreaking, because I thought that moment was bigger than me,” she said, referencing her 2001 Best Actress win — the only time the Academy has given a woman of color the honor. “It’s heartbreaking to start to think maybe it wasn’t bigger than me. Maybe it wasn’t. And I so desperately felt like it was.”

In addition to Berry, Lucy Hale, Kirsten Dunst, Emma Roberts and Giuliana Rancic have all recently debuted blunt cuts.

“We’d been talking about going shorter for a while and felt it was the right time,” Dunst’s stylist, Cervando Maldonado, exclusively told Us Weekly in January. “I took about two inches off and cut it blunt because it accentuates her face and is a cool, fresh look.”
