Hypable.com has posted this photo of the leads of “The Fault In Our Stars” which shows Shailene Woodley’s new short haircut. She stars alongside Ansel Elgort in the adaptation of the novel.
 
It wasn’t a fashion statement but an attempt to help her play a teenage girl struggling with cancer. Woodley donated her hair to a charitable organization, Children With Hair Loss, which helps all children with medically related hair loss.  
 
It was founded by a woman whose niece, at age 3, was diagnosed with acute lymphoblastic leukemia and underwent chemo for 5 years. She started the group so children could have access to fashionable, human-hair wigs if they wanted.
 
In other news, some suburban Pittsburghers have been notified about shooting that will take place at a nearby church, apparently the home of the support group where Hazel Grace and Gus meet. They were given three dates in September and one in October. 
 
Author John Green recently told the Indianapolis Star that he planned to make a cameo in the movie, even if it was being shot in Pittsburgh rather than its original setting of Indianapolis. 
 
The Star’s David Lindquist quoted Green as saying Pittsburgh was chosen as the main site for the movie (some scenes will be shot in Amsterdam, which cannot be faked here — easily) due to Pennsylvania’s tax credit for filmmakers. 
 
“[It’s] frustrating for me,” Green said. “I wish this movie could be filmed in Indianapolis, because I think it would be great for the city.”
 
He was offered to chance for a cameo in the movie and he took it. If filming hasn’t started, it should by tomorrow, Aug. 26.
