Chloë Grace Moretz staying blonde for Little Mermaid

Film star Chloë Grace Moretz isn't altering her appearance for the role of The Little Mermaid.

Actress Chloë Grace Moretz won't dye her hair red for The Little Mermaid, but will make it a "progressive" role.

The 18-year-old beauty has been cast as the famous character in the upcoming adaptation of the classic tale by Hans Christian Andersen. Disney first brought the story to life with flame-haired Ariel in the 1989 film, and while it's thought the new movie will follow the same premise, Chloë won't transform into a redhead for the part.

"A modern version of this tale is kinda what we're going after, making it progressive for young women in this day and age," she explained to Entertainment Tonight when asked what she's bringing to the role. "Haha, no, (I'm not dyeing my hair)! I want red hair, (but) we're going after the Hans Christian Andersen novel, so I'll actually have blonde hair."

Her light tresses are already the envy of women around the world, so they'll no doubt look fabulous with the rest of her costume. Filming has yet to begin but Chloë will certainly be in great shape when it does, as she's already started practising her moves for the movie. Last week (end04Dec15) the star posted an impressive snap on Instagram showing her balancing on her arms with her face towards the ground, with one leg stretched into the air and another held out.

"These Pilates moves are getting very aquatic #MermaidMoves.. @physicalperfectionpilates #PhysicalPerfectionPilates" she captioned the shot.

This isn't the only time she's been body confident recently, as she stripped down for the cover of Nylon magazine, wearing just a fluffy jacket. With her tresses worn down and messy, she gazes into the camera, with a flick of eyeliner making a statement.

"Just me and my shag rug @nylonmag" she captioned one of the brooding shots.
