Jennifer Aniston says she'd rather shave her hair off than be styled again with "The Rachel", the once famous do she perfected on Friends.

Before she was known for making an endless series of rom coms below her considerable comedic talent, Jennifer was famous for "The Rachel", a nineties haircut named after her loveably ditzy sitcom character Rachel Green.

The layered bob enraptured a generation (for a few weeks) and launched a million imitations but here we are years later and the still lovely Jennifer (44) has called her famous do “the ugliest haircut I’ve ever seen.”

On the publicity trail for her new movie We're The Millers, in which she plays a stripper roped into smuggling a ton of weed, Jen has said she’s rather get her head shaved than sport "The Rachel" again.

Speaking on Australian radio show The Kyle and Jackie O Show she replied to a question about her former hairstyle, “Shave my hair once, definitely. "The Rachel" for the rest of my life? Shave my head once! Yeah, I'd shave my head once!”

Of course, Jen's Godfather was Telly Savalas and she memorably shaved in The Break-Up, a rom com gone wrong, but this is not the first time she's dissed "The Rachel". She has previously described it as "the ugliest haircut I've ever seen" and "horrible".
