  • Scarlett Johansson reveals her dark side

    Scarlett Johansson sure knows how to make a statement on the red carpet.

    At the premiere of new movie He’s Just Not That Into You, she was up against a bevy of A-list co-stars – Jennifer Aniston, Drew Barrymore, Jennifer Connelly and Ginnifer Goodwin – but ensured all eyes were on her, not only choosing a seriously high-octane Oscar de la Renta frock, but debuting a dramatic new look as well.

    Known for her signature blonde bombshell tumbling curls, the actress instead showed off her new poker-straight brunette locks, parted at the centre.

    Gradually going darker for months, Johansson first made the change while on the promotional trail for The Spirit, switching from honey blonde to light chestnut.

    But why the recent change to the dark side? ‘It’s part of being a girl. We get to change up our thing and confuse everybody,’ the 24-year-old explained to reporters.

    The jury’s still out on our verdict, but let us know your thoughts in the comments box below. Is Scarlett a signature blonde, or should she stick to brunette?
