Metro Manila (CNN Philippines, February 5) — Multi-awarded veteran actress Cherie Gil flaunted her shaved head as she graced the cover of Mega Magazine’s 30th anniversary issue.

Along with her new look, the 58-year-old thespian is currently in the United States to mark her “rebirth.”

“I’m completely finding myself and coming to terms with who I really am," Gil told the magazine. "It’s just great to have this opportunity and to be alive to start over. It’s like a rebirth of sorts."

The actress confided that she got rid of everything that symbolized her past life and even her hair.

“What’s hair diba? It grows back. It’s symbolic to my personal growth. When a woman is in distress, she cuts her hair,” she said.

Gil is known for her villainous roles on film, television and stage. One of her most memorable characters was Lavinia Arguelles in the 1985 blockbuster film Bituing Walang Ningning alongside Sharon Cuneta and Christopher de Leon.
