Jennifer Aniston is one of a short list of celebrities that can make headlines just for cutting her hair. She did just that earlier this year when she got a short bob. Now she’s talking about why she did it.

Aniston tells InStyle Magazine that she cut her hair after extensions had thinned it out.

“The real reason I cut my hair? My real hair was getting thinned out again from all the extensions. It was starting to look fake.”

Her hairdresser Chris McMillan gave an interview discussing his client’s new look. He explained why he’d convinced Jennifer it was time for a restyle.

Aniston first became a hair-headline grabber for her signature layered look on the sitcom “Friends.” To this day the fuss surrounding the haircut mystifies her.
