The Ultimate Sacrifice: What Lengths Would You Go To For Your Partner?

According to recent reports, Jamie Dornan has quit Fifty Shades of Grey for his wife. Yep, the lusty Christian Grey won’t be returning to the popular franchise because his spouse of two years is rumoured to be uncomfortable with the raunchy sex scenes and isn’t exactly thrilled with the amount of female attention it’s generating.

With the film smashing box office records, not to mention shooting Dornan to super-stardom, you have to admire the actor’s commitment to his relationship should this prove to be true. But just how far is too far to go for your other half?

In 2007, Katie Holmes found herself in a similar conflict when she reportedly turned down an offer to reprise her role as Rachel in The Dark Knight at the request of then husband, Tom Cruise. The film went on make $155 million in its opening weekend, while Holmes and Cruise went on to divorce. And despite the stars efforts, she hasn’t secured herself a blockbuster since. All in the name of love though, right?

What about the ultimate declaration of forever and ever with a tattoo of your lover’s name? Now that’s commitment. Recently rocker Benji Madden jumped aboard this train by getting his wife, Camerona Diaz’s first name tattooed across his chest. The 35-year-old took to social media to reveal the tat and captioned: “Thinking bout you #LuckyMan.” Tattoo removalists would be making a killing out this stuff! So this brings me to ask you, what is the ultimate sacrifice and at whose expense?

Is giving up a career opportunity to keep your partner happy reasonable? Or what about giving up certain friends, or maybe even family members? Regardless of how perfect our girlfriend or boyfriend may be, we’ve all got conflicting interests at the end of the day. A relationship shouldn’t necessarily be about making over the top sacrifices, but rather compromising and trying to meet half way. Did you hear that, Jamie? Because Fifty Shades of Grey just isn’t going to be the same without you, sigh.

5 Of The Best Very Short Hairstyles

Winter is the perfect time to make a major hairstyle change and opt for the chop. Very short hair looks super chic with a turtleneck and trench coat (and gives you enough time before summer to grow it out if you’re not thrilled with the look).

The decision to chop your long hair off can make you quite apprehensive, particularly as you come to the day of your hair cut and still haven’t made the decision of which style to go for! To help you make that decision, here are five of the best very short hairstyles out there right now.

Pixie cut hairstyle

This is a stylish and eye-catching style for thin, fine hair and is a favourite with celebrities like Michelle Williams and Anne Hathaway. It will really make your eyes pop, so now is the time to play up your eye makeup with stronger brows and dark lashes.


Short and sleek bob

This is a variation of the pixie cut but with longer and shorter layers to give a sleeker look. This style is perfect for all ages and ideal if you’ve got fine hair and are looking for a more sophisticated, fashionable look as a refreshing change to long, limp locks – just ask Katie Holmes.


Face framing bob

This chic hair cut is short at the back and long enough at the front to frame your face and can suit every face shape, but it particularly compliments a rounder face. For an even more striking look, pair the chop with a bold new hair colour, like Ashlee Simpson’s platinum blonde bob.


Short and messy hairstyle

Messy short styles are among the easiest to maintain, often needing just a quick tousle with some wax – ideal if you’re not a morning person and only have a few minutes to get ready! Short and messy hairstyles also suit different face shapes. Drew Barrymore’s messy bob is both sexy and sophisticated.


Classic bob with fringe 

There are so many variations to the classic bob, though a very short version with a bold fringe is trending once more and really gives body to otherwise flyaway hair. Dannii Minogue’s bob and fringe is one of our favourite hairstyles of all time. It’s more high maintenance than other bob hairstyles, but you can style the fringe in many ways, including a side swept fringe, clipped up away from the face or tousled in soft waves.
