When we ran into Chris Rock last night at a screening of his new film Good Hair — a documentary about his quest to understand the $9 billion black hair industry — we asked him to tell us the strangest thing he learned while filming. "It's weird when you see the hair in India — it's got bugs in it," he told us. "Going to a hair plant is almost like going to a slaughterhouse: You don't want to see them make the sausage, as they say, and you don't want to see them make the weaves, either."
