Kristen Bell: 'I'm Over Being Blonde!'

Splash News Online

Kristen Bell might be rethinking her blonde bombshell status. For her role in the upcoming movie musical Burlesque–also starring Christina Aguilera and Cher—the California girl covered up her golden locks with a brunette wig. “When I had the wig on I didn’t even recognize myself in the mirror. I felt like another person,” Bell tells And for the usually sunny-haired star, the temporary change might be something she is considering for good. “Now I’m over being blonde. If I’m well received as a brunette in Burlesque then maybe I’ll go brunette in [real life]!” While we are used to Kristen as a blonde, we love the chocolate brown hair against her fair skin and sparkling blue eyes, and think she should try it out for real. Tell us: Should Kristen Bell go brunette in real life or should she stick to blonde? Andrea DeSimone

She totally should! She looks so much prettier and fresher as a brunette. I love you Kristin! You are original and awesome : )

Gorgeous as a blonde, gorgeous as a brunette. Lets face it, she could shave her head bald and still be a complete knock out

She looks like Natalie Portman. Or at least she does in this picture. She’s pretty either way, but she might get more parts as a brunette, she looks more mature. (In a good way, not old.) :)

I completely agree that she looks like Natalie Portman with dark hair! That’s the first thing I thought when I saw this picture, and I think dark hair would look great on her.

Jon on

She has every right to feel that way, and she should do whatever makes her happy!

Adrian on

I think she looks just like Sophia Bush

Gail on
