Natalie Portman has an unusual new beauty tip for women - don't waste time preening yourself.
The star - who sports a skinhead in new movie 'V for Vendetta' - insists women throw away years of their lives pampering themselves.
The stunning actress said: "The time you spend on your appearance as a woman - if you pull all that together, you would have an extra ten years to live."
Meanwhile, Natalie has revealed she loved her shaven head so much she is thinking of lopping off her locks long-term.
The actress admits the cropped style makes her feel empowered.
She confessed: "Being a really small girl, I've never felt threatening but now, for the first time, I feel tough.
"People react to me differently and I love that."
