New Zealand-born actor Russell Crowe is to donate his hair to a charity that provides wigs to young cancer patients.
The 44-year-old is currently filming Nottingham, a film in which he will play the roles of both Robin Hood and the Sheriff of Nottingham. He has spent months cultivating shoulder length locks for the production, and has announced he will donate them to Locks Of Love when filming finishes.
Locks Of Love provides hairpieces to financially disadvantaged children in the United States and Canada who are under age 18 and suffer from long-term medical hair loss from any diagnosis. Their mission is to return a sense of self, confidence and normalcy to children suffering from hair loss by utilizing donated ponytails to provide the highest quality hair prosthetics.
People interested in donating their own hair to the charity can visit the Locks Of Love website.
