Legally blonde no more? Reese Witherspoon recently snapped a photo showing off a new brunette 'do. Looking cozy in a knit hat, tan jacket, and purple scarf, the 37-year-old actress grins from the driver’s seat. A camera crew peers in from the other side of Reese’s car, giving us a hint that the chocolate brown locks might be a wig for a movie role.
Reese’s co-pilot in the shot is actor Arnold Oceng, who stars with her in upcoming drama The Good Lie about a Sudanese refugee coming to the United States. The film is just one of many Reese has in the hopper currently. Also in post-production is Inherent Vice, where Reese will once again walk the line with one of her more well-known partners in crime, actor Joaquin Phoenix.
The Academy Award-winning actress is also currently at work on Wild, the film adaptation of the the 2012 bestselling book of the same name. For that role, Reese will likely return to golden hues onscreen seeing as her character, author and adventurer Cheryl Strayed, is a blonde, too.
That said, we kinda like Reese’s darker look. It makes her already bright blue eyes all the more vivid. Then again, that might just be due to her close-up camera angle.
Also looking much different these days is Reese’s little boy, Tennessee James. The nearly 15-month-old cutie melted hearts in a new photo of him out on the town with Mom (who’s blonde in that pic). Tennessee is Reese’s son with new husband Jim Toth and clearly inherited both parents' good look genes. Lucky lad.
After seeing this photo, think Reese should dye her hair dark or do you prefer her as a blonde? Hair styling suggestions welcome in the comments below.
