Oscar winners get haircuts for protesters in Iran


PARIS (AP) — Oscar-winning actors Marion Cotillard and Juliette Binoche, as well as other French film and music stars, filmed themselves cutting off strands of their hair in a video released Wednesday in support of protesters in Iran.

“For freedom,” Binoche said as she snipped a large lock of hair from the top of her head with scissors, before brandishing it at the camera.

The video, labeled HairForFreedom, shows Iran embroiled in anti-government protests. They were sparked by the death of 22-year-old Mahsa Amini after his arrest for allegedly violating the Islamic Republic’s strict dress code.

Video of Cotillard, Binoche and dozens of other women cutting off clumps of their hair was posted on an Instagram account, “soutienfemmesiran,” which translates to “support women in Iran.”

“These women, these men are asking for our support. Your courage and your dignity compel us,” read a post with the video.

“We have decided to respond to the call that has been made to us by cutting – we too – some of these locks.”

Some of the other women who participated included actresses Charlotte Rampling and Charlotte Gainsbourg, who was also filmed cutting a lock of hair from the head of her mother, singer Jane Birkin.
