Here’s some photos of everyone’s true love, Winona Ryder, on the New Orleans set of Homefront, and while it’s great to see her at work on a movie, that hair is giving me absolute fits because it looks so not very Winona-like. Those are some wild and wavy ombre extensions, which are all the rage for Hollywood starlets while playing characters who can be found at the margins of society with Jessica Alba, Rooney Mara, and Selena Gomez all recently taking the plunge by way of either extensions or wigs (and of course, Lea Michele and Jessica Biel do ombre just for the hell of it too). Winona usually keeps to her sleek, black hairstyles, so it’s kind of strange to see her like this, but it’s only for a movie, right?
In the film, Winona plays the tough, biker-girl sidekick of a methamphetamine drug lord portrayed by James Franco (naturally), who is mercifully not present in these photos because I don’t think I could handle his pretention at this very moment while taking in the shock of Winona’s wild new hair. Oddly enough, this is not the Ryder-Franco movie that we heard about a year ago, which means that now there are two of them. Winona had best be careful, or she’ll find James hiding in her trailer whilst taking photos of her butt and calling it AAART. Fortunately, Jason Statham was present on the set, so we do have a picture of him, and his hair never changes.
Winona was also smoking a lot on the set, but it’s unclear whether she was actually indulging for herself or for her crazy, ombre character. I’m guessing the correct answer here is “both.”
