The mystery surrounding Kristen Stewart’s dramatically lighter locks has finally been solved! The actress recently explained why she went blonde during a recent interview at the Cannes Film Festival and it’s totally not what you’re thinking.
Kristen Stewart completely shocked us all last month when she celebrated her 26th birthday by dyeing her dark brown bob a much lighter shade of platinum. Keeping the reason behind her hair makeover to herself, KStew left us all wondering if perhaps a new movie or Chanel campaign was in the works. Now, the actress has finally explained why she decided to “f*** up” her hair during a recent interview with People.
KStew has been a brunette for pretty much her entire career (there was a brief red period), so fans were understandably shocked when and curious to know why she dyed her hair blonde in April. While being interviewed alongside her Cafe Society co-star, Blake Lively, Kristen shared that her reasoning was quite simple.
“I just did like five movies over a two-year period,” Kristen said to People. “And I think it’s a very good decision for me right now to stop acting in movies for just a moment. And I’ve never really done that, I’ve never changed my appearance,” she went on to say of her new look. “I’ve always really stayed neutral since I was 10-years-old, so I was like, ‘I’m gonna direct a short, and I’m gonna f**k up my hair.'”
Okay, so the blonde makeover wasn’t for a new movie role like we thought it was, but the Cannes Film Festival shows we can still expect a few things from the actress, both in front of and behind the camera.
Earlier this week, Kristen made several red carpet appearances for the premiere of Cafe Society. Going from a simple white pencil skirt and crop t-shirt combo to a totally glam (and totally see-through) blouse and skirt, we can expect to see even more from Kristen and her blunt blonde bob since her short film is set to premiere at Cannes, as well.
What do you think of Kristen’s platinum makeover, HollywoodLifers? Have you ever tried out a totally different hair color like she did?
