Dorff gets hairy for Motel Life

Stephen Dorff had to have hair extensions for the movie

Stephen Dorff has had to endure having hundreds of hair extensions fitted for new film The Motel Life.

The American actor is about to start shooting the big-screen adaptation of Willy Vlautin's novel, in which he plays one of two brothers whose lives are thrown into turmoil after a tragic accident.

"My hair isn't very stylish - I have 400 hair extensions in my hair right now because I'm shooting a new movie, so there wasn't much that I could do to hide my hair tonight," he said at the Elle Style Awards in London.

Stephen, who starred in Sofia Coppola's Somewhere, won the gong for best actor at the ceremony.

He said of his new film: "It's a movie based on a novel called The Motel Life. It's me and Emile Hirsch. We play brothers and Dakota Fanning's in the movie as well, so I'm working with another Fanning this time, as I worked with Elle in Somewhere.

"It's nice, and I'm really excited to go back and start shooting."

Accepting a glamorous job is tempting, but you'd prefer a position that is more edgy and demanding. An unpredictable job is calling your name; grab it.More
