Being A Twilight Starlet Is Hard
03.11.09 by REELZ
Don't be jealous of Twilight's Nikki Reed as she traipses around Vancouver with Taylor Lautner and Kristen Stewart preparing to shoot New Moon. It's not easy being (playing) Rosalie Hale. It's hard, very hard. Reed tells MTV that it was excruciating to get her hair blond for the first film. "My hair fell out," she says. "It took 36 hours initially to make me blond, and every other day, I was bleaching my head and my skin."
For New Moon, Reed won't be bleaching (and possibly balding) again. "This time around, we are testing out different wigs and stuff," she says, as part of a larger extreme makeover (and bigger budget) plan by director Chris Weitz. "The goal is for something better, just better, all around better," she says of Weitz's plans, not exactly sounding like the biggest Catherine Hardwicke supporter.
Reed has other reasons (not just possible balding and dark roots), for not wanting to bleach this time. She's hoping to squeeze in shooting a non-Twilight flick, K-11 (also with Kristen Stewart), in between New Moon and Eclipse.
