Olivia Wilde: I Felt Invisible When I Went from Blonde to Brunette!
The 29-year-old actress recently discussed the differences she has noticed between being a blonde and brunette in Hollywood.
“I spent the first couple years of my career as a very blonde blonde. And then I went brunette for a role, and suddenly all my offers changed,” Olivia said. “And I always wondered – would I have been offered those roles had I still been blonde? I don’t think so.”
“I think the perception of brunettes being more intellectual persists. Even though it makes no sense! I mean, Hillary Clinton is very, very blonde!” Olivia added. “And when I went from being blonde for a long time to brunette, I felt like I was invisible, because you’d walk into a room, and nobody immediately looks at you.”
