Prior to showing off her new cut, Gina tweeted a warning to fans about her upcoming drastic transformation. "Easily 5lbs lighter. And I shaved my head. Can't wait to show everyone," she tweeted.

On Monday, Gina shared a picture of her slightly shorter locks before making the big chop. "Short hair, don't care. Ha Not true. It'll take some adjusting. I'll be a little crazy till the fairy dust settles," the post read.

It's no surprise that Gina is embracing her new look. The Golden Globe winner has been candid about body positivity and image. During an interview with E! News, Gina shared the reason behind all of her wisdom. "I grew up with two amazing people in my life," she said. "My parents were so phenomenal when it came to body image and to beauty and being very comfortable in your own skin."

She continued when asked if she always looks so flawless: "I did not wake up like this. But I do love what I look like when I do wake up in the morning," she said. "I have that balance to know that I'm comfortable in my skin the way God made me and then I'm also comfortable getting did and having fun and playing dress-up and knowing that those two are different and being comfortable in both. It's very exciting. But also, we create body image. We're the ones who create. We decide. Just like we decide trends, just like we decide everything in this world."
