Jennifer Aniston goes super-blonde for her new film: busted wiglet or pretty cute?

I’m sorry these pics are kind of crappy – you can see better photos of Jennifer Aniston’s “new look” here at LaineyGossip. Jennifer has been photographed the past few days in Greenwich, Connecticut (when I was little, I used to pronounce it “Green-witch”), where she has begun her new film The Switch. Obviously, the name of the film will be changed – we already discussed the movie a month ago. It has a good cast – in addition to Aniston, Mos Def, Tim Robbins, John Hawkes and Isla Fisher are all in it too.

There’s not much to say except Jennifer looks very blonde. Some sites are calling this a wig, but I’m not quite sure. Is it possible that Jennifer actually changed her hair for a film role? That she would go super-blonde? Hm… it probably IS a wig come to think about it. She would never drastically change her hair at this point.

A little blonde ambition goes a long way! Jennifer Aniston was almost unrecognizable while filming her latest movie, Untitled Elmore Leonard Project, on Tuesday, Feb. 5.

Bundled up against the cold winter weather in a black puffy coat, the actress, who turns 44 on Monday Feb. 11, was photographed on set wearing a bright blonde wig over her world-famous tresses. She topped off the new ‘do with a brown beret.

The engaged star — actor Justin Theroux proposed in August 2012 — is currently working through freezing temperatures in Greenwich, Conn., where the movie is shooting, being directed by Daniel Schetcher. The flick follows two career criminals (played by Mos Def and Will Forte) who team up to kidnap a jilted housewife (Aniston) but find their plans thwarted when her husband refuses to pay the ransom and she asks for their help in seeking revenge. Isla Fisher, Tim Robbins, and John Hawkes also star.

The Connecticut set is a far cry from Cabo San Lucas, where the actress and her fiance recently enjoyed a romantic getaway together. (Pals Jimmy Kimmel, Molly McNearney, John Krasinski, and Emily Blunt also joined the holiday vacation.)

“Every day they followed the same routine, with a workout in the morning with Pilates and yoga, followed by tanning time all afternoon,” a source told Us of the couple’s warm-weather trip. “All Jennifer wanted was to work out, tan, have margaritas, and be with her man.”

“All Jennifer wanted was to work out, tan, have margaritas, and be with her man” – they say that like it’s vacation-specific. That’s all she ever wants! Anyway… blah, whatever. Sources say that Jennifer changed the filming locations for this film to Connecticut so she could be closer to Justin, who I guess is back to staying at his old apartment in NYC? I feel like it’s been a while since we’ve seen a good, gossip-y photo-op from them. Which obviously means she’s pregnant, right?

    Yeah, I’m kind of doubting one of the cast has the pull to change filming locations…I don’t think these “sources” understand much about how film productions work.
    Don’t mind the blonde. Probably a wig.

  2. Kim says:

    Yeah right, A list stars can’t get the location changed but a B- list actress can.That’s funny. I thought she was taking a break from filming to have twins,plan a wedding….

  3. Esmom says:

    She looks kinda cute. Makes her eyes look extra blue.

  4. Josie says:

    Hasn’t her hair been that color before? This doesn’t look like a “drastic” change to me.

    • EmmaV1 says:

      Agreed lol…and in Horrible Bosses when she dyed her hair dark brown….it was still the same style, length, etc…just a different color.

      Jennifer never changes it up too much because she knows her always/current hairstyle is the one that makes her look the best. She doesn’t have the strong facial features to have her face stand alone without hair.

  5. manly says:

    wtf!! greek got blue eye?bahahaa

  6. I like it! I have a friend who is colored/styled just like JA – they even kinda look alike – and I adore her VERY blonde! It’s so cute!

  7. G says:

    You know it’s serious role when she changes her hair colour.

  8. GoodCapon says:

    It ages her. She looks best as a dirty blonde.

    And I call BS on the changing of film locations. I don’t think anyone, even the top stars, could be too self-absorbed or even influential enough to pull that off.

  9. CL says:

    Workout, tan, drink? Is she from the Jersey Shore? I know their motto is gym, tan, laundry, but JA can have someone else do the laundry.

  10. Janet says:

    “Cute” and “adorable” are two words that should never be used to describe a 44 year old woman.

  11. pretty says:

    I always see someone claiming this woman’s eye color is fake, she’s wearing blue eye contacts (the recent comment i saw was in Beyonce thread, saying everyone is so harsh to beyonce bla bla). Her eye color is REAL isn’t it? It’s just obvious. Paris Hilton’s blue eyes are fake she clearly wears contacts. but aniston’s eyes are real

    • Emma - the JP Lover says:

      @Pretty, who wrote: “Her eye color is REAL isn’t it? It’s just obvious.”

      Is it obvious? Everything about Jennifer Aniston was gloriously ‘dark brown’ and Greek until she reach her early 20′s … so exactly ‘how’ obvious is it for her to have ‘real’ blue eyes?

      P.S. Not one blasted thing said in any Jen Aniston thread could EVER compare to the vile comments made here about Beyonce.

      Questioning Jen Aniston’s real eye color isn’t merely a ‘nasty, assumption,’ it’s based on the fact that I’ve seen photos of the woman in all her ‘brown’ glory.

    • mln76 says:

      I don’t think she wears contacts to change her eye color in real life but she COULD be wearing contacts because she is on set and in character. Not a big deal. my thoughts is that the hair color isnt great she looks best as a brunette. Still applause for changing it up!

  12. lisa2 says:

    Isn’t that a wig. And if it is the whole thing is mute. I don’t see her dyeing her hair. She wore wigs in most of her movies.

    And if anyone thinks that she can change the location of a film. NO. Beside I think the budget for this is very very very small. I saw a few reports of 5-15 million. So I’m sure the Producers picked the cheapest place to film. Not because JT or Jennifer.

  13. Cathy says:

    She looks ok, I’ve seen her look better. Betcha it’s a wig though. I don’t see her messing with her hair like that.

  14. DenG says:

    Looks like she has bigger lips. Imitation being the sincerest form of flattery, you know.

  15. Jayna says:

    She’s shooting a movie in winter. It’s freezing. Yet, she’s still tan. What an actress. Can’t even give up her tan once.

  16. Heigl says:

    Yesterday Lainey said Jen has enough clout in Hollywood to choose film locations. So I would rather believe her than posters on this site. I also dont know why people say she should go back to Tv when she is an accomplished comedy movie star. She may not be Julia or Sandra but she aint doing too bad either.

    • mln76 says:

      I honestly dont see it as a huge deal if the budget is that low anyway(1 to 5 mill). Maybe they had a choice of locations maybe she just asked if it was possible. Fact is its a low budget film not some 100 mill Project that has to shoot in a specific location to save 10 to 20 mil. She no longer is a leading lady in big budget films. Lucky for her the quality of her work seems to have improved as she’s going for ensemble pieces.

    • Kim says:

      Lainey give a break.Besides knowing Amy and Will were breaking up .That chick hasn’t had any scoops in months.If Aniston had the location moved ask Lainey what was the original location.Why not have it moved to NY state so she can be even closer to the City? A woman who can’t even open a film as a main lead actor is dictating the filming location.I guess she hand selected the director and had final say on script too.I would only believe this if she financed the film herself.

  17. J7 says:

    I think she look much better with blonder hair. Makes her look “sexier”…

  18. Paloma says:

    Jennifer with blonde hair …. yawn. If she really wanted to mix it up how about a short haircut with a new color?

  19. Kitkerenina says:

    Sucking in her cheeks, pining for Brad to step out from behind a tree Mr. Darcy style.

  20. skuddles says:

    Oh goody… another boring, stupidass romcom on the horizon. Can’t wait.

  21. heyu says:

    Her mother eyes are coloured and aniston aint even 100% greek.. Doesn’t she have some other ethnicity from her mother’s side??

    And btw plenty greeks with coloured eyes do exist..

    And for the people who still question it even after seeing google images of a young jennifer aniston.. Then a comment from smeone that lived wit her and married to her shuld end this debate

    Can’t remember the exact mag, but while still married to her, there is an interview brad pitt did where he was asked the colour of his wife toothbrush.

    His reply was ‘aqua blue like her eyes’

    It was the interview where he was showing and talking abt the house he designed for them.. The name of the mag I can’t remember

    • Shay Kay says:

      Psssst?!Listen up!Everybody on CB knows that BP lied about being happy with JA, loving or admiring her so why on earth would he be honest about the color of her eyes?!
      BP is only telling the truth if he’s talking about AJ and how much he love/admires her and especially about what a great mom she is!
      As a matter of fact it’s generally accepted that Brad has never even met JA!
      Bless AJ ‘s heart if that male pop tart ever leaves her!brad’s fans will destroy her…. Unless it’s AJ fans that are so rabidly anti-Jen…in which case ole Brad will get exactly what he deserves!

  22. KellyinSeattle says:

    I like the wig better than her own hair.

  23. K-MAC says:

    LOVE IT! She looks great that blonde

  24. Camille (TheOriginal) says:

    The length is good, but that too light colour makes her look harder/older than ever. Not a good look on her, at all.

  25. Tommy says:

    She looks great! Don’t get the hate for her at all.

  26. epiphany says:

    Colored her hair? Please. This woman doesn’t have an adventurous bone in her body. She ate the same lunch every day for 10 years! She takes every vacation in Cabo! She would never make that drastic a change to her hair color – she’s too boring.
    Someone previously pondered why we hate Aniston. It’s not that we hate her; it’s that she’s STILL trading on the fame she garnered from being Mrs. Brad Pitt, 8 years after the divorce. She’s a mediocre actress at best – she hasn’t remained famous because of her talent, that’s for sure. Where are the rest of the Friend’s cast? Wallowing in obscurity, fighting to keep their current shows (those that have them) relevant, while one of the least talented of the 6 is constantly in our faces. Her marriage and divorce were the best PR move in the history of Hollywood.

  27. Runs with Scissors says:

    Hahaha, her lips look ridiculous

  28. Jana says:

    Is there anyone in Hollywood with a new idea for a movie??? The premise to this one sounds EXACTLY like the plot to Ruthless People, an 80′s movie starring Bette Midler as a rich housewife who gets kidnapped and her husband, Danny Devito, refuses to pay the ransom. It’s a shame they don’t run these scripts through the same process as college term papers.

  29. Marianne says:

    After taking some looks at the close-up shots, I really don’t think it is a wig.

  30. Jellybean says:

    Why is she allowed to do movies? You know it will be a flop if she is in it?… Cinematic Arsenic….

  31. Cleveland Girl says:


  32. anom says:

    fugtastic. that over shoulder ‘pose’ is a combo of nicole kidman, Naomi watts and renne z. chinman is photo-shopped to hell. just look at her staged photo with her hired photog in the photo and candid photos of her outside of her trailer. OBVIOUS.

  33. Carolyn says:

    Good grief. Huvane & Aniston are getting desperate if they’re pitching “hairstyle Jen” again.

  34. Contrived says:

    look how uncomfortable she is in her own skin (or should I say wig.)

    She’s doing her classic ‘hand clasping hair to hide her chin’move

    She is so self-conscious of how any variation in her ‘hair style’ is a possible breach in her hair being kept at it’s exact positioning as to never reveal her manly chin.

    She looks like an idiot walking around pressing her hand there like she’s just come back from the dentist—she’s only drawing more attention to her freaky face.

    people are so b*tchy about NK calling her Grannyfreeze—-well what do you call maniston? shot up with so much filler she should be shooting the remake of the godfather—her recast as marlon brando.

    she needs a new nic too like chipmunckstin

  35. Deejane says:

    She looks great!!! Margaritas and hanging out with her love sounds like a great plan to me. So glad she can be happy again :D
