Jennifer Aniston’s ‘Hair Gate’ affair
London: Jennifer Aniston has revealed that the movie bosses of her latest comedy were apprehensive about her idea of dying the hair darker for the role, because they feared fans would fail to recognise her as a brunette.
The former ‘Friends’ star dyed her blonde locks brown and added a heavy fringe for her role as a raunchy dentist in ‘Horrible Bosses’.
She admitted the new look was her idea, but studio chiefs fought her over the plan.
"We had this wonderful period of time I do call Hair Gate. The studio didn`t want me to wear a wig. I was told, ‘No one will know who you are’. I said, ``They will know my name from the credits,``” the Daily Star quoted her as telling the Chicago Sun-Times.
"I`m the one who insisted on the dark hair. 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... I just felt such a freedom,” she added.
