Actually, this DOES happen in the book. (This story says that it doesn't.) Kate is upset and doesn't want to go anywhere because she lost all of her hair. Sara takes clippers to her hair and shaves a streak straight down the middle to show Kate that it's just hair. Eventually, all of Sara's hair gets shaved off, and Anna's too. They go to the mall entirely bald. It's on page 239 of my copy.

Thank you too a1, I don't know anything about this movie. I just figured she was portraying a cancer patient. Is the book a good one? I love to read and need a new book in fact, I just finished reading "The Ruins". Creeeeeeeeeeeepy. Remind me to stay far FAR away from vines with red flowers.

She's not portraying a person who has cancer, she shaves her head off to make her daughter, who has cancer, feel better.

BAAAAAAAAAHAHAHAHAHA SHE LOOKS LIKE A CONEHEAD WITHOUT HER CONE! I know she's portraying a person with cancer, and I am NOT laughing at that, but she is NOT a good person for "bald" LOL It is not becoming on her at ALL,

thought i would let you all know this isn't a new twist on the book. the girls did in fact shave their heads after kate lost all her hair from chemo.

This does happen in the book. There is a scene where Kate (the one with cancer) is losing her hair so the mother, Sara, cuts off all of her hair. Then the younger sister, Anna, does the same. It's told from Sara's point of view. She says they then go to the mall as "three beautiful girls." It just happens in passing as a flashback, but is most definitely in the novel.

Great point CaterpillarGirl.. the Laura Roslin look is so ridiculous!! I have read this book and hate the casting of Cameron.. she is more of a bubbly, cooky funny girl!!

If anyone's interested, there's an organization called St Baldricks that raises money for children with cancer. People are sponsored to shave their heads, and the shaving is generally done as a big event. It normally happens around St Patrick's Day but some areas have shaving parties throughout the year. Rather than have the post tagged with a link, just google "St Baldrick's." :)

Yah, I read somewhere that she did shave it and then they updated it with she was just messing with the reporters and she really didn't - If i was given the shot to do that, I totally would for art (money). Your hair would be so healthy when it grew back out- look at Natalie Portman...and Britney. :P

I don't believe for a second that she really shaved it, and I also don't think people can't tell the difference.

Totally a cap - if the conehead didn't give it away (lol at beldar comments), the seam in the front will. Photos on some other sites look 'shopped to add some stubble/shadow. In the end, good lighting and post-production will make it believable enough. Effects/prosthetics/makeup usually look like garbage in real life. Just glad it's not my job to trim the cone off her head during editing....

Really? That's surprising, since I think that it would actually be more practical for Cameron to wear a bald cap, simply because she spends the rest of the movie with hair, while Sofia's bald for the whole thing. It looks like a cap to me (either that or she has a big head), but I'd need a picture from off the set to safely say for sure.

Just read on another site that Cameron did indeed actually shave her head. http://www.laineygossip.com/Cameron_Diaz_shaves_head_for_My_Sisters_Keeper_.aspx

I think its funny how every one is taking sides on the hair shaving thing. I'm sure the producers had good reasons for the choices that were made. When the movie is finished you won't be able to tell who shaved and who is wearing a cap. BTW, I think Cameron is the kind of girl who would shave her head if they wanted her to. She is always up for doing whatever a role takes. She might have already booked other work that requires a full head of hair, which, I believe is the reason Dakota backed out.
