Blake Lively Looks Unrecognizable as a Brunette While Continuing to Film Upcoming Thriller
By Jackie Willis
Blake Lively looks less like a gossip girl and more like the girl with the dragon tattoo!
The 30-year-old actress is currently filming The Rhythm Section in Dublin, Ireland, and might be flying under the radar as she's nearly unrecognizable with her new hairstyle.
Lively portrays Stephanie Patrick, and instead of rocking her trademark long blonde hair over the weekend, she was sporting brunette locks and an edgy pixie cut. The hairstyle seems to match her character's disposition in the movie as Stephanie is seeking revenge against those who orchestrated a plane crash that killed her family.
The Rhythm Section, which isn't scheduled to hit theaters until next year, also stars Jude Law.
The actress recently discussed her role in the film and the double standard of actresses having to always be likable in movies. "You always see that thing in movies where if a woman is a prostitute or a sex worker, you always think, ‘I don't want the guys to be grossed out by her,'" Lively said while on Vanity Fair's "The Limelight" podcast. "We have to still make her kind of sexy ... tragically sexy, but you know, music video."
She continued, "If you drive down skid row, that's not what you see. That's not the truth. So it's really important to us to show a woman who society has written off, and society has forgotten about.”
