Actress Selena Gomez now has a new edgy hairstyle to boot after the 20-year-old debuted her new brunette locks on her Facebook account, but it's only for a character she's playing in a new film.
"New hair for a new movie :) I love changing my hair!' she wrote on her Facebook wall." Her altered appearance is most likely for her role in the 2013 film, The Getaway. In fact, the teenager will be playing the character of the 'Kid' opposite Ethan Hawke, Jon Voight and Bruce Payne, reports the Daily Mail.
The film started shooting in May 2012 in Sofia, Bulgaria and has now continued shooting in the United States. It's been a busy couple of weeks for the singer and actress. The most significant event was her jump out of teenagehood after she celebrated her 20th birthday with a win at the Teen Choice Awards earlier this month.
"Beyond blessed, so much love. Thank you for the most incredible birthday yet! I'm truly, truly grateful. I love my family, friends and all of you," she posted on her Facebook page shortly after.
It was a double celebration for Selena as she managed to scoop the award for Choice Music Group with her band Selena Gomez and the Scene at the ceremony.
The delighted star was presented with birthday cupcakes as she received her award from actors Kevin Hart and Nina Dobrev onstage at the event.
Selena's boyfriend Justin Bieber was also one of the stars of the show, also winning awards for Summer Male Music Star, Male Artist and Fashion Icon.
The 18-year-old singer performed a medley of his hits Boyfriend and As Long as You Love Me before accepting his prizes.
"This album has meant the world to me," Justin told his delighted fans. "This is just a reminder to everybody in here: Believe. Thank you."
