For her new role as a traveling saleswoman in the film Management, which hits theaters today, Jennifer Aniston trades her famous head of perfectly tousled hair for a darker auburn bob that’s a distinctive departure from her signature relaxed glamour. “She wanted to look very different,” says Melissa A. Yonkey, her hairstylist on the film, “but didn’t want to cut or dye her hair.” Jen’s solution? A $10,000 custom wig created by her offscreen hair guru Chris McMillan. “The color was very complimentary on her. She’s got wonderful warm skin,” says Yonkey. And the new look was all for the sake of art. “With that blond hair, she’s very known as Jennifer Aniston.” says Yonkey, “and I think sometimes that takes away from watching the story”. But don’t think the hairstylist wasn’t at least a little worried about taking style risks with one of America’s most famous movie stars. “I was actually very, very concerned,” she says. “She’s so well-known for her hair that I was waiting for a lot of backlash. But I haven’t had it yet.” Tell us: What do you think of Jennifer’s onscreen hair?Reporting by Nicholas White

$10,000 for that? Should have given the money to charity and bought some wash out hair dye!

She is obviously beautiful no matter what her hair color, as for her acting, she is a great actor who has proven that in the many different projects she has chosen and if you have not had a chance to see them before you pass judgment , you should…..,.

Don’t really like the hair but do think that she is a good person.

Jennifer is beautiful but we should stop putting so much emphasis on physical appearance. As for a 10 000 $ Wig, that sounds DIVA to me, when we know children die of hunger every day. Nothing seems good enough for some self-centered Hollywood actors.

Gorgeous as always. (EVEN though the photographer has captured a bad pose, under a very bad light. Everyone looks bad under a stormy weather -do you people see sun? No.-)

Okay, this is the dumbest article ever! It’s hair. It’s a wig. There are countless, true actors who gain weight, lose weight, shave their head, etc… for a role. She is played out. IT’S HAIR! SHE DIDN’T EVEN CUT IT! Wow! I hope she wins an Oscar, I’m sure she’s deserving of it!

Sounds like the catty girls club meets here. Jealous much???

She’s very pretty and she’s a good lighthearted actress.

Jen Aniston is a very sexy woman with an major charisma. She is talented but most importantly she has class, is down to earth and very grounded. I would love to have pics of the people making negative remarks. You are entitled to your opinion – but something says it stems more from jealousy and less from reality. Oh – and yes – I know – you are all better looking than Jen.
