Beauty Queen Takes It All Off

9/22/2009 3:30 PM PDT BY TMZ STAFF

Miss Virginia 2008 Tara Wheeler pulled a Britney -- but instead of buzzing off her hair from a case of the crazies, she did it for a much better cause.

TMZ was there in Arlington, VA yesterday as Wheeler went all G.I. Jane in an effort to raise money for St. Baldrick's, an organization benefiting kids with cancer.

Check the before and after -- we think she actually pulls off the look.

I think she actually still looks pretty good. Either way she is a cool ass chick. What a nice thing of her to do.

She's ugly with or without hair. Is that really the best looking chick that the depressed state of Virginia has to offer up. I doubt it. She's gross either way

That is one of the most sweetest things I have ever seen. You can tell how nervous she was. The tears in her eyes brought tears to mine. That was a very unselfish thing to do. Every woman knows how important her hair is to her and for her to make that sacrifice (especially, a beauty queen!) is downright courageous...maybe not as courageous as those actually battling cancer...but for her to show her support for those who are is awesome.

I think she looks great with or without. You know, cutting your hair off like that, at least for a woman, is a huge deal. Especially for a woman who's looks would have been a big part of her life. It was a selfless act of kindness, and I think it's fantastic!

It was a publicity stunt. True charity should be given in secret with no benefit given to the giver.
