Gina Rodriguez shocked her “Jane the Virgin” fans by shaving off part of her trademark long locks for a movie role.

The 31-year-old actress, who admitted to being nervous about getting her hair cut off, is singing a different tune now. Over the weekend, she showed off her freshly shorn undercut on Instagram accompanied by a message about true beauty.

“I cut my hair for a film, and there is nothing more freeing than realizing your beauty exists from within,” the actress of Puerto Rican descent wrote in the caption. “I am not my hair. I am not my weight. I am not my skin color. I am love. I want to be love with every interaction, with every decision I make for myself, with every failure and success.”

Rodriguez, who frequently encourages others via social media to accept who they are, continued, “You should try it. I dare you. Let go of what you think would make you more beautiful and discover you have all you need already inside.”
