Twilight star Ashley Greene has gone red.
Greene is joining other co-stars in what is likely the cast’s final promotional tour for a Twilight film, the upcoming Breaking Dawn Part 2. Prior to heading to South Africa to pick up the next leg in the tour, Greene ditched her signature brunette locks, trading them in for a fiery red look.
She hinted at her new look when she tweeted “Jason Backe is working some magic on my hair at the Ted Gibson salon,” to her fans on Friday from New York City. “It’s going to be crazy and exciting.”
Greene admitted in a recent interview with Marie Claire that while she’s looking forward to her post-Twilight life, she will miss the attention that goes along with the franchise:
“Twilight has ruined me. When this is all over, flying internationally is going to be very hard for me,” the actress confesses. “It is just not worth it to buy a first class ticket, because of the cost.”
Continues the star, “I’m lucky because my dad taught me to be frugal and save. And that’s important because I want to know that I don’t have to take an acting job for two or three years if I don’t want to and that I’ll still be able to make my house and car payments and buy food for my dogs.”
She also chatted a bit about her love life:
“I’ve gotten very good at detaching whenever I have to go away for three months, which I realize is hard on friends and kind of selfish,” Greene said. “You go on a couple of dates, and then someone ships off to do a movie. I’m always here and there – everyone in my industry is – and that’s why a lot of relationships are fleeting.”
So far, the new ‘do is drawing a lot of attention to the 25-year-old actress, both good and bad. “The star is so pretty, she would look good with any ‘do, but we’re not sure this one is the most flattering,” writes HollywoodLife. “Maybe the star dyed her hair for a role? Or maybe it’s just a temporary color change? Well we hope so, because we already miss her brownish-blonde hair!”
