Natalie Portman goes blonde: 'I'm like a different person'

natalie-portman-blonde-hair.jpg Natalie Portman's brunette days are over... for now! The actress, who has pretty much always had the same brown hair color, debuted new blonde locks at her husband Benjamin Millepied's dinner for his L.A. Dance Project at the Disney Concert Hall.

If you were a fan of her girl-next-door look before, don't fret -- the change isn't permanent. It's just for a job.

Stylist Tracey Cunningham said, "She needed to make the change for an upcoming movie role, so we achieved a gorgeous, multi-dimensional golden honey blonde."

"My mom says I'm like a different person," Portman admitted to THR. "I did it just a couple of days ago."

Portman complemented the new 'do with a Dior Couture dress and gorgeous Van Cleef & Arpels jewelry.
