Oscar-winning actors Marion Cotillard and Juliette Binoche, as well as other French stars of screen and music, filmed themselves cutting off their locks in a video posted Wednesday in support of protesters in Iran.
“For freedom,” Binoche said as she cut a handful of hair from the top of her head with a pair of scissors before brandishing it in front of the camera.
The video, hashtagged HairForFreedom, comes with Iran engulfed in anti-government protests. They were sparked by the death of 22-year-old Mahsa Amini after she was arrested for violating the Islamic Republic’s strict dress code.
