Michelle Williams: 'I'm Really Working on Growing My Hair Out!'

Anne Hathaway and Miley Cyrus may be totally committed to their short haircuts, but one famously gamine star is ready to ditch her pixie: Michelle Williams.

“I think I’m ready,” Williams, 32, told E! News at a press junket for her film Oz: The Great and Powerful. “It’s on its way, slowly but surely.”

Don’t expect rapid change from the star, who’s had her signature platinum short cut since debuting the look at Cannes in 2010: “I might want it now, but I’ll have it in three years,” she joked of the slow growing-out time.

In fact, that in-between stage is why she’s waited so long to start the transition. “The mid-stage is insufferable,” she said. “It’s really hard on your self-esteem.”

We have to say, she’s managing it quite nicely, showing off a punky asymmetrical look Wednesday outside Late Night With David Letterman. And since her moviemaking schedule is clear for a bit, she joked that she’s ready to devote herself to the new length. “I’m really happy to not have anything looming — except my hair,” she told E! “I’m really working on growing my hair out!”

Tell us: Are you looking forward to seeing Williams with longer hair (here’s a refresher pic) or do you prefer her pixie?
