James Gunn Responds To Hate Over Karen Gillan Going Bald For GUARDIANS OF THE GALAXY
Karen Gillan "might have done something a little bit crazy," as she joked, when she unveiled her bald head to play Nebula, but the Guardians of the Galaxy director says he's receiving hate mail for it.
Doctor Who alum Karen Gillan surprised many at Comic-Con when she whipped off her wig to reveal she had shaved her head to play the villainous space pirate Nebula in Guardians of the Galaxy. While the Scottish actress was enthusiastic to loose her red locks for the Marvel film, days later Guardians director James Gunn revealed that some fans didn't take kindly to her decision and blamed him for it. "If you are sending me hate messages about making @KarenGillan2 shave her head, you might consider the overall state of your life," Gunn tweeted. He then took to his Formspring to respond to questions on the matter, saying he was "basically" the one who decided that Karen Gillan should shave her head. "It was explained that whoever played Nebula would have to shave her head," he said. "So Karen knew about this when she auditioned. A bald cap looks fake when seen repeatedly up close & during long action sequences," James Gunn added.
Meanwhile, Karen Gillan and her Guardians of the Galaxy co-star Lee Pace spoke with AMC during Comic-Con and offered some interesting deets about their characters. "Nebula is the villain of the film. She's an employee of Thanos and she has a very interesting and complex relationship to the lead female of the film, Gamora," Gillan said. Pace mentioned that, I play Ronan the Accuser, who's an admiral of Thanos'. I try to hunt down the Guardians." What do you think?
