"Wow," wrote one, whilst a second wondered: "What's going on with the hair? I'm scared."

A third remarked: "You let them cut your fabulous hair??? I hope that's a wig. But you're still beautiful."

The dramatic look is probably all down to wearing a wig, something the actress is known to often use when in character – Celeste's thick fringe in Big Little Lies, Virginia Woolf's mousey chignon in The Hours and Gretchen Carlson's blow-dried bob in Bombshell are just some examples.

And while Nicole looks stunning with short hair, she has recently revealed she's embracing her natural style again.

Speaking to Australia's The Sydney Morning Herald, she admitted: "Do I wish that I hadn't screwed up my hair by straightening it all the time? Sure."

Talking to another publication, she said of her natural "beach girl" curls: "I had that hair. I shouldn't have abused my hair. I loved that hair. What was I thinking?

"I'm working on getting that hair again."
