SYDNEY - Christina Hendricks originally dyed her natural blonde hair into red because the star was “obsessed” with children’s book Anne Of Green Gables as a child.
The ‘Mad Men star’ later realised the shade attracted attention and started dyeing it again and again.
“When I was 10, I was obsessed with Anne Of Green Gables and I wanted to have her beautiful red hair,” the Sydney Morning Herald quoted her as saying.
“So my mother said, ‘Let’s just go to the drugstore and get one of those cover-the-grey rinses!’ My hair was very blonde at the time but it went carrot red. I was over the moon - and I went back to that colour again and again.
“I’ve always attracted attention for the way I look and that’s not a bad thing if you’re trying to make your mark in the business. But after a while you just want people to notice you for your work!” she said. (ANI)
