Actress Hilary Swank as Amelia Earhart in the new film 'Amelia'

Last November, Hilary Swank appears on Oprah to promote Pantene Beautiful Lengths; an initiative dedicated to supporting and encouraging women who have lost their hair during cancer treatment. With scissors in hand, Oprah Winfrey then proceeded to cut nine inches of Swank’s locks.”I’ve been growing it for the last six months to donate my hair,” Swank said at the time. “I’ve been taking a lot of vitamins and taking really good care of it, knowing that it would go to a woman in need.”

It wasn’t just all for charity, however. The 34-year-old actress also was also getting ready to play the role of aviator Amelia Earheart, who had short hair, in a new film. Almost one year later, Swank is now back promoting the Beautiful Lengths campaign and encouraging people to donate hair to the cause. “One in three women are diagnosed with cancer in their lifetimes. A lot of my family members have had their lives devastated by cancer,” Contactmusic quoted her as saying. “You just need to have eight inches (of hair) to donate,” she added.

For more information, check out the Pantene Beautiful Lengths website.
