Cameron Diaz has told how she ended up in tears after a friend chopped off her long hair.
The Hollywood actress, 39, has been sporting a much shorter look in recent months, but she revealed it was the result of a "misunderstanding".
She told the Tonight Show With Jay Leno: "I said, 'Oh I just want a little bit off'...and it went from here to here."
The What To Expect When You're Expecting star said of her reaction on seeing the new hairdo: "I just burst into tears and started crying, and I felt so vulnerable. For a woman to all of a sudden have no hair, oh my God."
Cameron told the show the situation was awkward, because her stylist is a good friend.
"I felt really bad, she felt really bad, she started crying, I started crying," she said.
But she added: "I ended up writing her a few emails after, the next couple of days, assuring her I wasn't going to kill her."
