Katherine Heigl chops off her hair

Los Angeles: After Ashlee Simpson and Jennifer Aniston, actress Katherine Heigl is the latest A-lister to lop off her long locks.

The `Ugly Truth` star debuted her short platinum do in Los Angeles on Thursday as she took delivery of a new addition to her family - an adorable black puppy.

The 32-year-old star is no stranger to drastic tress change. Last year Heigl dyed her naturally blonde hair dark brown for her role in `One For the Money`, reported US magazine.

"I was pretty shocked at first, I was like, `wow, it`s dark. It took me a good day and a half to totally embrace it," she said.

And she eventually realized the change was just skin deep. "I say all the same stupid things - I just look different."
