Did you know that Angelina Jolie is actually a blonde?

The 34-year-old actress has revealed that she's a natural blonde, and that her late mother Marcheline Bertrand didn't like the colour of her locks.

So the actress has been dying her hair dark since she was four years old.

'My natural colour is dark blonde. But when I was four or five, my mother dyed my hair dark brown, and she decided to keep it that way. And I stuck with that,' Contactmusic quoted Jolie as telling German magazine Das Neue.

She isn't the only one. Check out these other Hollywood beauties who prefer to hide their blonde curls.

It's hard to imagine Winona Ryder as a blonde.

 

She has been dying her blonde locks brunette ever since her role in 1986's Lucas. One of the few films she wore her natural blonde hair in was the 1990 film Edward Scissorhands, opposite her then boyfriend Johnny Depp.

 

She once told a magazine that she 'sees' herself more of a brunette than a blonde. We think so too.

Yep, Julia Roberts is not a natural redhead or even a brunette for that matter.

 

The Pretty Woman was once quoted as saying, 'My real hair colour is kind of a dark blonde. Now I just have mood hair.'

 

Mood hair or not, we rather dig her as a brunette.

Eva Green

French actress Eva Green, who played Vesper Lynd in the Bond film Casino Royale opposite Daniel Craig, says she is a natural blonde.

 

'I'm a dark blonde, yes. I dyed my hair blue then black when I was 14. I thought the colour was more flattering and matched my skin tone. I don't think I'd ever change back unless it was for a film,' she once revealed in an interview.

Kate Walsh

We've always remembered Kate Walsh as a red-head.

 

The Grey's Anatomy star, who left the hit television series to star in its spin off, Private Practice, is actually a blonde.

 

'When I was a blonde, guys treated me like a girl... a girly girl. Then as a redhead, I was a little more sassy, maybe a little more boorish -- more how I am inside,' she was quoted as telling Women's Health.
