Of Course The Hunger Games Has To Digitally Recreate Philip Seymour Hoffman In Mockingjay

Natalie Dormer Shaved Half Of Her Head For The Hunger Games: Mockingjay
Natalie Dormer has never been a woman who has trouble going for it. She’s done nudity, corsets and all sorts of general weirdness; so, it probably shouldn’t come as a shock to anyone that she’s willing to cut her hair for a role. In this case, she was apparently willing to shave her head, or at least half of it for both parts of The Hunger Games: Mockingjay.
