Do blondes really have more fun? Natalie Portman is about to find out as the actress has dyed her trademark brunette locks a significantly lighter tone for a new film role. The Oscar-winner joined Robert Pattinson and her husband Benjamin Millepied on the red carpet on Saturday night for the Van Cleef & Arpels Dinner for L.A. Dance Project wearing a dazzling Dior Couture gown and Van Cleef & Arpels jewels. She certainly looked like she was having a good time as a golden girl as she was spotted enjoying a joke with Pattinson who a source told Us Magazine 'was laughing so hard, he almost spit out his beer!'
Speaking about her makeover Natalie revealed to The Hollywood Reporter 'My mom says I'm like a different person. I did it just a couple of days ago'. She certainly looks like a different person - thanks to the dye and the dress she's transformed from edgy indie actress to straight up Hollywood beauty queen. Although it's not been confirmed which film the actress has reached for the bleach to star in, this is not the first time that she's undertaken a dramatic hair change for a role. She famously shaved off all her hair to play the part of Evey in V for Vendetta, which then grew out into a cute pixie crop, and in Closer she rocked a sleek bob - as well as a rather trashy pink wig.
But what do you make of Natalie's blonde do? Although it's nice to see the actress change things up we can't help but look back at her former caramel hues with longing. Take a look through the gallery above for Ms Portman's full hair history and let us know what you think in the comments box below.
