Joey revealed during a conversation with Allure that she was completely okay with cutting her hair.”I’ve never really had an attachment to my hair. I couldn’t care less what happens to it,” She further added, “No part of me was nervous or was second-guessing it. So many people would ask me, ‘Are you really scared?’ or ‘Are you nervous?’ or say, ‘You’re so brave.’ And I’d go, ‘I’m not brave, I’m just cutting my hair off.'”
It wasn’t the first time Joey shaved her hair for her role. As per People, she went bald for the 2014 movie Wish I Was Here when she was 14.
