Helena Bonham Carter can be seen in the upcoming movie ‘The Lone Ranger’ starring as a brothel madame named Red Harrington, and for the role she had to dye her normally brunette locks a very bright red. But that was no problem for the actress because she loved her new colour! In an interview with USA Today Bonham admitted that she loved the dye job;
“I’ve always wanted to have that kind of fake-looking red hair, I’ve never gone this red before. It’s couldn’t be redder, chilli-pepper red.”
I guess I had a hard time believing that Helena never had that colour of hair before. She seems such a style chameleon that I just assumed she was bright red at some point! The actress even revealed that her new hair colour gave her an idea for a new role;
“I have always wanted to play Pippi Longstocking. Maybe I will play her all grown-up. I would love that.”
I couldn’t think of a better actress to play her all grown up! Great idea!
