“I love that you cut your hair. Is that your real hair color?” Ellen asked — and Janney explained that, at some point last year, “a big healthy few inches of roots came in.”

“I just decided I wanted to be free from hair color and hair extensions. This is the most authentic. I love it.”

“My natural color started growing in — which is gray,” she explained. “And then I thought, you know, I’ve always wanted to cut it off and do a Helen Mirren thing. I just wanted to try it.”

“I just get very brave with my hair,” Janney concluded. And that’s great!
