Over the weekend, Reese Witherspoon debuted a dramatically darker hair color while lunching with hubby Jim Toth and adorable baby Tennessee, and we were dying to know what inspired the big change.
Well, we just got official confirmation that the 37-year-old actress darkened her locks for a role in the upcoming movie The Good Lie, which follows a young refugee of the Sudanese Civil War and his encounters with a "brash American woman" as he adapts to the modern world.
Reese? Brash? We can't wait to see this!
