The 22-year-old actress went bald for her roles in "The Act", "Wish I Was Here" and "The Dark Knight Rises" and she said, "I would absolutely do it again. I think every woman should [shave their head] at least once in their life. I've never felt more free or more in tune with my beauty. I couldn't hide behind my hair."
Joey went on to explain that while she was often "made fun of" for sporting the shorn look, it actually led to a confidence boost and she felt "very powerful." She told Allure, "A lot of people made fun of me when I had my head shaved."
"A lot of people said really mean things. But when I had short hair, I actually felt more confident; I felt very powerful," Joey further shared. "[Their words] slid off my back. People like to insert themselves in other people's business when it doesn't actually matter. Me having a shaved head for a project really upsets you that much? I'm doing fine."
Joey also explained that in recent months she had made a spur-of-the-moment decision to dye her hair blonde before changing things up for blue locks and eventually shaving her head once more. She added, "A little over a month ago, I decided, 'Screw it, I'm going to go blonde.' "
"And then after I was blonde for a little while, before I shaved my head, I got this crazy idea and I just went to the store, got a box of blue hair dye, and my sister dyed my hair blue for me," she continued. "And then I had my future brother-in-law, just on a whim, cut my bangs for me."
