Josh Duhamel has revealed that he enjoys reinventing himself on the big screen, because people aren't expecting it.

The Transformers star sports a mohawk in his next film Scenic Route and admitted he didn't mind changing his hairstyle.

"I got a mohawk and it was awesome. I'd recommend it to anyone. With Scenic Route, it was like, 'Do you want me to have a mohawk?' F*** yeah, I'd love to," he said.

"That's an example of the most difficult thing I've had to do and the most demanding dramatically and that's what you hope to do - to keep growing and keep getting better and try and tell whatever story you're given."

Josh, who stars in Safe Haven alongside Julianne Hough, admitted it isn't easy to get jobs even with his dashing looks.

"It's a constant fight and it's a difficult thing because you have to take whatever opportunities you can get because it's a tough business to even get a job so at first if that's what they're hiring me for, great, then it's up to me to make the most of those opportunities and to be the best actor I can be and to commit and surprise people," he said.

In taut thriller Scenic Route, Josh stars opposite Dan Fogler.

"Scenic Route is a movie about these two guys who get stranded on the side of the road for four days without any real food or water. It goes from this dark buddy comedy to this survival movie and by the end you don't know if either of them made it out," he teased.

:: Safe Haven is in cinemas now.

Aquarius:

This is a great time to go shopping. You'll find some clothes, furniture or artwork that seems tailor made to your taste. Don't worry about spending more money than usual. The things you buy will give you years of pleasure. If you're looking for work, volunteer at a charitable organisation that is close to your heart. This will lead to a paying position that is emotionally fulfilling. You're tired of dead end jobs that leave you cold. It's time to move in a more rewarding direction.More
