The Little Mermaid Won't Have Red Hair Anymore
At least, if Chloë Moretz and the team behind the upcoming live-action film have anything to say about it. Next to her stellar vocal range, Princess Ariel's fire-engine hair has become a signature element of the Little Mermaid's look as far as Disney's take on the tale goes. Though during a recent red carpet appearance, Moretz kind of blew our minds when she revealed to Entertainment Tonight that she wouldn't be dyeing her hair a certain shade of red. "I won't have red hair," she said, laughing. "We're going off the Hans Christian Andersen novel, so I'll actually have blonde hair."
Considering that the screenplay was written by Richard Curtis, who brought us classics like Notting Hill, Love Actually, and the Bridget Jones films we've obsessed over for years, we're pretty excited to learn more about The Little Mermaid as the movie progresses. No surprise here, Moretz was thrilled to get the role. "I remember when I got the call, I rolled all the windows down in the car with my brother and and we both screamed," she added. "It was very exciting, it's like a childhood moment. A modern visionist tale is kind of what we're going after, and making it progressive for young women in this day and age." Red hair or not, we are here for this.
