"What happened was, as I got older, the hair (on her legs) began to fall out in different places. So one night, Sid and I were in the closet and he said, 'Mama, you starting to have spots on your legs. It look like you got the mangy (sic)! So you gotta do something about that.' So I shaved them that night and I've been shaving them ever since. If I still had it (full leg hair) I would still wear it well." Oscar winner Mo'nique, 47, explains why she started shaving her legs in 2011 after famously letting her hair grow for decades.
