One of the killers of toddler James Bulger did not want his head shaved in prison because he feared he would look "like a thug", a court has heard.
During a phone call on August 16 2010, Venables also complained about a newspaper story that he was on hunger strike, jurors were told.
The details emerged in the Old Bailey trial of prison officer Scott Chapman, 52, who was allegedly paid £40,000 by newspapers for leaked information about Venables.
A prison intelligence report read out by the prosecution stated: "The newspaper had said he was on hunger strike, and a cleaner, and on suicide watch."
"He will not want his hair shaved off because he does not want it in newspapers that he looks like a thug."
The trial was adjourned until tomorrow when the defence is due to start.
