The star wanted to break free from her usual brunette look.

Actress Kristen Stewart felt liberated dying her hair platinum blonde after years spent keeping her look "neutral" to slip into various film roles.

The Twilight star is known for her dark brown locks and pale complexion, but after finding herself in between acting jobs for much of 2016, she decided to have a little fun with her appearance.

Kristen admits she stopped playing with her looks to make herself more versatile as an actress, and she jumped at the opportunity to switch up her hairstyle.

"I haven't acted in a movie in close to a year, and... I'm constantly preserving my physicality and staying neutral in order to, like, fit the roles and sort of, be ready to do anything," she explained on U.S. breakfast show Today.

"I worked and worked and worked on a few movies - they're all coming out now, which tends to happen - and I directed a short, and just wanted to (let loose). I was like, 'You know what? I can do whatever I want!'"

Kristen has been rocking the blonde look since the spring (16) and is in no rush to dye her hair back to brunette.

She currently has just one project lined up for the future, an untitled movie about Lizzie Borden and her infamous family murders in 1892. The 26-year-old will portray the Borden family maid, brunette Bridget Sullivan, opposite Chloe Sevigny as Lizzie, but the film, directed by Craig William Macneill, has yet to be given a start date.

Kristen is also currently promoting director Olivier Assayas' new thriller Personal Shopper and Oscar buzz movie Billy Lynn's Long Halftime Walk.
