Jennifer Aniston's got a confession.

She of the famed Rachel hairdo—which the actress later described as the "ugliest haircut [she'd] ever seen"—explained why she cut her hair into a chic, shoulder-length bob right smack in the middle of her Just Go With It promotion tour last February.

"The real reason I cut my hair? My real hair was getting thinned out again from all the extensions," the 42-year-old Horrible Bosses actress said matter-of-factly in the January issue of In Style. "It was starting to look fake."

On hair chameleons like Katy Perry and Rihanna, such a change would have been no big deal, but Jen's gorgeous, shiny mane hadn't been seen a major transformation in years.

More recently, Jen—who's living in New York City with beau Justin Theroux—has been spotted growing out her sunny blond layered locks.
