By now, you're aware of JLaw's new pixie cut, but what you might not know is why she opted for the shorter 'do.

As it turns out, the director of her upcoming film, "The Hunger Games: Catching Fire," is partially to blame.

"She used to give me a hard time about the hair because I was always saying, 'Dye your hair, dye your hair. We need your hair dyed, no wigs!'" said director Francis Lawrence. "And then of course, dying her hair fried her hair, so she had to cut her hair.

"At first I didn't realize it was messed up," Francis added. "I thought she was cutting it just to wear wigs to make me mad, but it wasn't the case. We actually fried her hair, which is sad. I feel bad."

But when life gives Jennifer Lawrence lemons, she apparently jumps at the chance to make lemonade. "My hair couldn't get any uglier," recounted the actress at a recent question and answer session for Yahoo. "I don't know, I cut it earlier, and it was just kind of like [shoulder-length] and it grew to that awkward, gross length. I just kept putting it back in a bun, and I said, 'Well I don't want to do this,' so I just cut it off."
