Jennifer Aniston - Movie Bosses' Fears Over Jennifer Aniston's New Hair
Movie bosses behind Jennifer Aniston's latest comedy fought plans to dye her hair darker for the role because they feared fans would fail to recognise her as a brunette.
The Friends star dyed her blonde locks brown and added a heavy fringe for her role as a raunchy dentist in Horrible Bosses.
She admits the new look was her idea, but studio chiefs fought her over the plan.
Aniston tells the Chicago Sun-Times "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.'
"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."
