“It’s for the film ‘Hick.’ I thought [my character] needed red hair. It helps when you’re playing a role, when I don’t feel like myself. And I don’t really feel like myself with red hair… I feel like Ariel.”

Blake Lively explains that she hasn’t gone strawberry blonde permanently and that the new shade is for a movie. As for “The Little Mermaid” comparison, glad to hear that she saw it, too. Perhaps wearing a turquoise dress (Ariel’s signature color) wasn’t the best choice. The parallel wouldn’t have been as obvious if she were rocking an LBD. [People]
