Did Jennifer Aniston shave her head? A viral photo of Jennifer Aniston sporting a short spiked haircut has been making its rounds on social media after it surfaced on Facebook, Tuesday. Despite the claims that the Friends actress shaved her head in relation to someone she knew with cancer, Jennifer Aniston has not in fact shaved her head recently. Though some news sources reported that the actress had posted the photo on her official Facebook or Instagram page, the photo is actually a leftover from an earlier prank created on April Fool's this year.

The photo that features Jennifer Aniston and her spiky short haircut, which some are calling a "bald head", is actually a Photoshopped image from 2006. At the time the actress had just attended the movie premiere of her film, Friends with Money.

"My niece was diagnosed with cancer last year. Once her hair started to fall off, she was depressed and terrified to look in the mirror. She recently asked me why she wasn't pretty like all the other girls. I didn't know how to react. So, I cut my hair off for her. This Christmas I'll be her mirror."

While the actress has not cut her hair off, she is sporting a new haircut these days. About a month ago Jennifer Aniston was seen out and about sporting a sassy new bob. While the actress, who is well-known for her gorgeous locks, appears to be enjoying the new cut, she says she hopes to never relive the "Rachel" of the '90s. The look was Jennifer Aniston's signature hairstyle during the Friends era, but Jennifer Aniston says she was never a fan!

During an interview on The Kyle and Jackie O Show, Jennifer Aniston was asked: "Would you rather have the Rachel haircut for the rest of your life or shave your head once?"

To which she quickly replied: "'The Rachel' for the rest of my life? Shave my head once! Yeah, I'd shave my head once!"
