Julia Roberts Goes Bright Blond Just In Time For The Oscars

Redhead no more! Just in time for the 86th annual Academy Awards this Sunday (March 2), Julia Roberts is a blonde.

On Friday (Feb. 21) photographers spotted the 46-year-old actress rocking her newly-dyed hair while she walked around Los Angeles looking comfy in a black sweatshirt and sweatpants combo paired with clogs.

Though the "August: Osage County" star has been a blonde in the past, we'd become quite used to Roberts' auburn tresses. No doubt the change is all part of her master plan to make sure she shines on the red carpet at the Oscars.
