Kristen Stewart Dyes Her Hair to Play Bella in 'Breaking Dawn'

INF

After dyeing her hair strawberry blonde this summer for her role in On The Road, Kristen Stewart has gone to the dark side, returning to a brown hair color. “I was blonde a little while ago,” Stewart told PEOPLE on the red carpet at the Cinema Society and Everlon screening of her film Welcome to the Rileys on Monday. “So now I’m dark again for Twilight,” she said, adding, “I feel much more myself with darker hair.” Director Jake Scott, who directed Stewart in Welcome to the Rileys, said he kept Stewart’s chestnut color for the movie. “She came from Twilight onto our film within the space of two weeks. I liked it, and we kept it. But we let it grow horrible and shaggy and let the split ends come out.” But as Stewart prepares for Bella’s Vampire incarnation in Twilight, she’s had to give up some unhealthy habits she picked up on the set of Welcome to the Rileys. “She ate badly, smoked tons of cigarettes, stayed up late,” Scott said. “She embraced the habitual nature of the character.” So Stewart is currently testing a lighter diet. “Well, it’s kind of embarrassing,” she told PEOPLE. “But I’m playing a vampire soon. I eat disgustingly normally. And so, right now, I’m trying to not put so much butter in my food and stuff like that.” And is the diet working? “Yeah, yeah,” she answered “I feel better . . . I guess so.” Tell us: What do you think of Kristen’s new hair color? –Jeffrey Slonim

Whoa.. Kstew scrubs up well. She’s a hottie

Natalie on

Her her looks 10x better that it has in the past. If she ever plays “Joan Jett” in a movie again, or some other character with a strange haircut, the best option is to use a wig! That way you don’t have to walk around with crazy looking hair in your every day life.

AnonymousPerson on

This isn’t a ‘new’ hair color. Brown IS her real hair color. I think she looks best brunette.

Honey on

She looks drop dead gorgeous.

Amber on

Flawless! Love her!

I like her hair better dark brown it suits her the best! Can’t wait for Breaking Dawn and a few other new ones she has coming out.

kay on

I know right? I love her and all but she’s got to quit smoking. So does Rob. It unhealthy and shortens your life. I don’t want her or him to die of lung cancer. :( I would be sad, even though I don’t know them.

Patty on

Love her! She does look best as a brunette.

tracy on

jealous of her either way, shes dating rob pattison, that hottie

T on

I thought I read somewhere not too long ago that she is actually a natural blond but prefers the darker color. Either way, she looks great.

Anonymous Person – Brown is NOT her natural hair color. In interviews she’s said her natural hair color is a strawberry blond type of color.

Jan on

Ms Stewart is one awesome lady….I have noticed lately that she seems to be more relaxed and able to cope with all the attention…I just wish she could interview better (ie) Regis and Kelly this morning…She obviously cannot look at herself on camera…Too bad as she is really so good…Love her dark hair..She is a beautiful young woman…

elsa caceres on

needs to stop doing those movies and do other movies
with other characters

spanish fly on

Social misfit !! she needs social skills. If you dont like the attention – get a new job!!

Jon on

I like Kristen Stewart’s new hair-color, and that’s interesting to hear!

Meredith on

Personally, I don’t think she’s a very good actress and she’s certainly not attractive. Although she does look better with the darker hair. Just not the black hair she had for The Runaways film.

Diana on

She and half of Hollywood smoke way to much it’s called the Hollywood diet.
She’s very pretty but her diet and smoking is going to age her quickly… shame too b/c I like her.

Tiff on

she looks best as a brunette…it suits her

tina on

she’s so articulate. yeah, i guess, um, i think so…

boy, would i love to be her friend.

She’s so much prettier when she SMILES!!!! I like the darker hair on her.

WWP on

God, could she look more bored and sour? really, maybe put this chick on some anti-depressants so she can deal with the horror of being beautiful, famous and rich and the agony of having to show up at a publicy thing once in a while and be, like, pleasant.

Come on!! She really doesn’t have to DIET!!!
She’s already soooo thin and she’s got very thin legs!
I would kill for such fabulous legs!
I’m a rowing champ so I’ve got massive legs!
but Kristen please don’t cut your hair like you did in the runaways! Long brown, red or blond hair looks nicer.

She’s on a DIET!!?? REALLY!!?? I mean come on…she’s already super skinny!!! Give me a break.

Roelien on

@AnonymousPerson Actually, her real hair color is a light brown/blondish color but she looks much better as a brunette. Glad she feels more like herself with the dark hair, wouldn’t want her any other way.

Melanie on

I have seen Kristen in person twice. She is beautiful but really tiny. In the movies Bella is always wearing layers so why does she have to diet? It makes no sense. I’m really excited to see her become the best vampire in the series.

Anon. on

She’s actually a natural dirty blonde—she’s even said so. Her natural hair color is what she had in the movie Panic Room…but brown hair does suit her. She looks good blonde, but “In the Land of Women” blonde, not “On the Road” strawberry blonde.
