Much like Robert DeNiro in Raging Bull, Christian Bale in The Machinist, and Charlize Theron in Monster, Jennifer Aniston is a chameleon of the silver screen, becoming totally unrecognizable with each Oscar-winning performance. I assume that’s what she says to herself in the mirror. And possibly her cats. Sun Times reports:
It was a moment in history where Jennifer Aniston took a stand. She was going to be a brunette. And there was nothing anyone could say or do about it. On this particular morning, her hair is that trademark streaky blonde, falling perfectly a few inches past her chin. Hair Gate happened when Aniston did the unthinkable and vowed to go brown in her new film “Horrible Bosses,” where she plays a dentist who sexually harasses her assistant (Charlie Day). “I’m the one who insisted on the dark hair,” Aniston says. “I was doing a movie right before this and one after that had me looking more like me, and I knew this character had to be different.” The studio balked at a brown wig with a row of bangs. “There was just no way I could be saying those words and not look somewhat different,” says Aniston. When she lost her regular self in the mirror, “I just felt such a freedom,” she insists.
Totally. Some days I like to wear a red shirt then wear a black shirt the next day so people think I’m a completely different person. Haha, people walk up to me and don’t know what to think!
