Because he doesn't have that much to begin with and it makes him look too old when he's dating 20 somethings?

Because fewer women find receding hairlines, bald spots, and combovers as attractive as the "tough" look of a shaved head?

Yup, he'll have a pretty nice shiny bald spot if he didn't go that route. So who cares?

Like most guys who shave their heads, he thinks he's fooling people.

Like most guys losing their hair, it is the modern way to go. Are you suggesting Die Hard 4 will be a better movie if he has a comb-over?

Hey it's better to shave your head, than you can say it was choice to be bald. It worked for Billy Corgan anyway.

He looks so much cooler with the bald head. In fact, I think more white guys should go ahead and shave their heads when they start losing a lot of hair. The combover and other silly methods of hiding hairloss are stupid looking.

Why does Bruce Willis shave his head?

Because pulling it out clump by clump after seeing Demi enjoy life with a younger guy hurt a lot more.

Guess I'm in the minority, but I've been a fan of Bruce since his Moonlighting days and perfer him with hair. It was very refreshing to see an unshaven Bruce in Sin City for a change.

I'm sure he prefers himself with hair as well. I do respect him for being one of the few folically-challenged stars in Hollywood to not attempt to hide it(at least not since about 5 years ago). Unlike say Nick Cage who ain't fooling anyone with that toupee.

he looks like he belongs in the nursing home on that "Whole Ten Yards" poster, when did he start shaving his head? The first movie I can think of where he had a shaved head was Pulp Fiction, am I right?

I thought he had a little bit of hair in that one. My guess would be Twelve Monkeys.

I think it's to negate the effects of drinking too many Seagrams golden wine coolers.

It's wet and it's dry. Golden wine coolers. My, my, my, my!
