Reese isn’t only one who’s gone Brunette

Ellen DeGeneres showed her solidarity with Reese Witherspoon, who recently swapped her signature blonde hair colour for a dark new look.


The comedienne tweeted a snap of herself sporting freshly dyed brown hair next to a Photoshopped image of the Legally Blonde star’s updated ‘do.   Although, Ellen’s hair colour could just be a belated April Fool’s prank as the tweeted snap arrived late in the evening of April 1.



Either way the famously blonde television host was clearly enjoying her new auburn locks.   The 55-year-old accompanied her light hearted image with the caption: ‘Reese Witherspoon isn’t the only one who’s gone brunette.’   Ellen was referring to the mass attention 37-year-old Reese received over the weekend for dying her hair – and it appeared that the veteran stand-up comic wanted in on the attention.   Reese’s unveiling of the change occurred on an outing with her son Tennessee in Nashville.   But the actress – who was in a more casual mode for the family lunch – did not give her brunette debut the star treatment it deserved.   Instead, the mother-of-three sported a messy bun as she carried her blonde boy in her arms.

Ellen tweeted the tongue-in-cheek snap regarding Reese fresh off the heels of her recent tour of Australia.   She was visiting the country on business, as The Ellen DeGeneres Show was filming some special  episodes in Sydney and in Melbourne.

Ellen was clearly taken with the Commonwealth, and even suggested she’s considering calling it home.

While taping her show in Melbourne, she said: ‘I shouldn’t put it out there but I can see us living here one day.’

‘I’m moving here; it’s so beautiful,’ she continued.   And a week ago the funny woman tweeted: ‘I had heard Aussies were incredible people, but this week I experienced it for myself. Thank you, Australia…’
