We’re not sure if it was her newly red hair that turned heads at the White House Correspondents’ Dinner in Washington, D.C., or her walking hand-in-hand with Sean Penn. Either way, Scarlett Johansson knows how to make an entrance.
The formerly blonde actress has sported red locks before, as she did for her role in 2010’s “Iron Man 2.”
And Johansson is just one of the leading ladies channeling Lucille Ball and Jessica Rabbit - among other notable Hollywood gingers - of late.
“It’s for the film ‘Hick,’ ” the “Gossip Girl” actress told People.com. “I thought (my character) needed red hair.”
Lively added: “I love it … I feel like Ariel.”
Drew Barrymore was spotted at a Los Angeles Lakers game in April with her new man and an even newer red 'do. Barrymore, who has never been afraid to experiment with her locks, was previously seen sporting darker roots with lighter ends.
“90210’s” Jessica Stroup dyed her hair red in late January. She stuck with the fiery hairstyle through a Black Keys concert in Las Vegas and Valentine’s Day in February. However, the actress has since returned to her brunette roots.
