Film star George Clooney is worried that his latest role could cost him his hair.
Clooney is set to put on weight and skin his head for his part in espionage thriller, Syriana.
But while the Ocean's Eleven lead is not worried about carrying the extra weight, a friend has warned him that his locks may not grow back.
"He's been worried about going bald and someone told him that if he shaves his hair off then it might not grow back the same," a pal of the 43-year-old said.
The slicked back dark hair with a hint grey is part of the refined look that makes women around the world go weak at the knees, so it's no wonder Clooney is worried.
Apparently he's now looking into alternatives to the full on bald look such as a close crop or a skullcap.
