"I actually really know who I am beyond the hair," Anderson explains in her new interview in Purple Fashion's latest issue. "It was a relief more than anything to let a little of that go, and with the hair went a lot. Not to get too personal, but it really helped me get out of a 'situation' that was not right, no matter how hard I wanted to believe otherwise." The new interview paints Anderson in a new light — one that's free of cartoon caricature and pinup snuff. Rather, it highlights a woman changed — one with secret projects in the works and an growing presence in the art world.
"I heard that when you cut your hair, your past goes with it," she explains. "I think this is where life begins again for me, in this industry or wherever it leads. It feels right." And, man, does it look right, too. There's confidence in her new spread that's empowering. Sure, she's nude, but it's a liberated nudity. Whatever her future has in store, you can definitely count us along for the ride.
A preview of the rest of the shoot can be found on the next page, but, fair warning, it is pretty NSFW.
