Who's that girl? Nicole Kidman is almost unrecognisable with a bleached blonde hairdo on the set of new movie The Paperboy in New Orleans yesterday
She's famous for her fiery red hair and being one of the most beautiful actresses of her generation - but Nicole Kidman has shown her dedication to her art by getting a new bleached blonde hair do for a new role.
The 44-year-old showed off her startlingly different look on the set of new movie The Paperboy in New Orleans, Louisiana, yesterday, coupling her almost white blonde hair with heavy kohl eyeliner.
Even if it's not her actual hair after a heavy attack of hydrogen peroxide, it looked incredibly convincing and the actress's transformation is quite incredible.

Oscar-winning actress Nicole, who landed the prestigious award for Best Actress in 2002's The Hours, was also wearing an equally startling bright green outfit with white piping that looked a bit like a waitress uniform.
The Paperboy is about a reporter and his brother who team up to attempt to exonerate a man sentenced to death.
Mother-of-four Nicole apparently replaced Sofia Vergara in the role in June and her character,Charlotte Bless, is said to be a woman with a dark side who writes letters to men on death row.

It also stars Zac Efron, Matthew McConaughey and British actor David Oyelowo - who can be seen in Rise Of The Planet Of The Apes - and is due out next year.
Meanwhile, Nicole's husband Keith Urban is facing police questioning after a photographer accused the country singer of attacking his car.
Urban and wife Nicole Kidman were leaving a restaurant in Nashville, Tennessee last Wednesday when snapper Willem Pieterson attempted to take pictures of the couple.

Pieterson alleges Urban became angry at him and 'kicked' his car door in retaliation.
Metropolitan Nashville Police Department told GossipCop.com that the photographer filed a police report over the alleged attack.
However, they added that police had looked at Pieterson's car door and found no damage.
A spokesman added: 'The incident report bears the classification of intimidation. Follow up is being conducted to sort out the detail of this matter.'
