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?

Remember Boys Don’t Cry? She was SUPPOSED to look like a boy when her hair was cut similarly then. She’s a beautiful woman but this is not flattering and should be reserved only for artistic roles!

It makes her look so much older. Young girls should have SOME hair.

I’m pretty sure this is for her role. I think when she’s done shooting, she’ll probably darken up and add some edge to the cut to make it sexier.

Color’s okay. I think the cut’s the problem.
