It’s hard to imagine Emma Stone sans her lustrous red locks, but it turns out the actress is actually a natural blonde! As reported by TheSun.co.uk, Stone recalls, “When I first moved to LA, I had this agent who thought because I was blonde, I only wanted to play cheerleaders.” But that wasn’t the Easy A star’s masterplan. “One day, in a fit of trying to do something different, I just dyed my hair dark brown and got my first role a week later,” she explains. Stone’s not the only one in Hollywood loving the ginger side. Rihanna has also gone on the record with MTV UK saying “redheads have the most fun!” If you judge by these two, that’s definitely true!
