Jennifer Connelly

Jennifer Connelly looked ‘remarkable’ as a blonde, says her husband Paul Bettany.

The stunning actress is renowned for her alabaster skin and dark brown mane but changed her hair colour to play the lead in drama film Virginia.Such a dramatic change can be a beauty risk, but the lighter hue suited the star thanks to her glowing complexion and green eyes.Jennifer’s husband Paul was certainly blown away by how well the unnatural colour worked.

‘I thought it was remarkable. Somehow I thought it really suited her. I’ve never seen her as a blonde,’ he told American publication the New York Post.Jennifer has since returned to her natural shade, but Paul doesn’t mind.’I married a brunette,’ he quipped.Jennifer looked gorgeous at a screening of the film in New York City earlier this week. The beauty teamed a figure-hugging black pencil dress with black strappy sandals and a simple clutch.

Jennifer is not the only star who has undergone extreme changes for a film part.Most recently, former Disney starlet Vanessa Hudgens was spotted swapping her raven locks for a blonde do on the set of new movie Spring Breakers and both Natalie Portman and Demi Moore have shaved their heads for work in the past. -MSN
