Hilary Swank's New Blonde Do: Love It or Hate It?

She may be notoriously adventurous with hair change-ups, sporting a buzz cut for her Oscar-winning role in Boys Don’t Cry, and even letting Oprah chop off her locks for charity, but when Hilary Swank turned up at last night’s Joyful Heart Foundation Gala in N.Y.C., she left us speechless. Gone was the dark brown bob she’s sported for months — replaced by a short honey blonde crop, complete with matching light eyebrows. Of course, this is likely for her latest role as legendary aviatrix Amelia Earheart in Amelia, but we still can’t get over how different she looks! Tell us: Do you love Hilary’s new hair? Or do you prefer her as a brunette?

Hate it! This is probably the worst possible look for her! I think she looked better bald. This makes her look like shes 50!! How old is she, like thirty something?

Kristen on

I bet Chad Lowe is happy he does not have to wake up and roll over and see that face in the morning any more!

Annick on

She looks so much older than she is!

oh i KNOW she did it for her role as Amelia Airheart, but goodness…if she is done filming she needs to dye it brown and sass it up some.

That Girl on

Maybe she’s playing Suze Orman in a new movie or something… (eeew)

I like the hair cut and color..but not on Hilary. I think if it wasn’t blonde it might work better.

rebecca on

Cute cut….terrible color. It would be cute if she had gone brown/red.

lenora on

She is not that pretty anyway, so this makes her look even worse.
