The 31-year-old actress took to Instagram on Thursday (27.09.18) to debut her freshly cut locks, and joked the pixie crop was inspired by both Brad and Gwyneth, whom she says sported the same 'do in the 90s.

The 'Game of Thrones' actress posted a photo of herself wearing minimal make-up and wearing a hairdresser's gown fresh from her trim.

She wrote alongside the snap: "Me: I'm thinking when Gwyneth and Brad had the same haircut. @jennychohair: I got 'chu #nowijustneedanextra2feetoflegs @jennychohair I would follow you into any battle anytime anywhere #fortheloveofthelowmaintenance. (sic)"

The 'Me Before You' actress was flooded with supportive comments from fans who loved her new look.

One user wrote: "You always look stunning...Whatever you do....You're beautiful as always. (sic)"

Another said: "Oh my god!! it looks so cute I love it!!! It definitely suits yu! Ly kween. (sic)"

Short hair isn't the only change the 'Solo: A Star Wars Story' star has made to her body recently either, as she also got three dragons tattooed on her wrist to mark the end of hit HBO series 'Game of Thrones'.

Emilia played mother of dragons Daenerys Targaryen on the show, and was left devastated when it wrapped filming for good earlier this year, so had her on-screen "babies" - dragons named Drogon, Rhaegal and Viserion - inked on her wrist.

Taking to her Instagram account, the beauty uploaded a photograph of her new body art and captioned it: "MOD 4 [email protected]_dr_woo_ made sure this mamma ain't NEVER forgetting her babies.... #dontworryionlybrieflypassedout

Emilia recently admitted that she had an "existential crisis" when she shot her final scene for the drama - which airs its final season next year - and she and the rest of the cast couldn't stop sobbing.

She said: "It's bittersweet, we've all done a lot of crying. There's been a lot of crying on set ... Existential crisis, like, legit, where you're like, 'What?'"
