Julia Roberts has hilariously recalled the terrible at-home hair dye job she did for her Mystic Pizza audition.
In a new interview alongside Patricia Arquette for Variety, the two Oscar-winning actresses traded stories about their worst auditions when first starting out in Hollywood, and the conversation soon turned to the lengths they went to to transform their looks.
While Patricia recounted putting temporary dark dye in her hair for a prospective job, Julia told a story about the dye she used to get into character for an audition for her role in the 1988 coming-of-age drama.
“I had a success out of it, but I did have about two cans of coloured mousse that I got at (New York pharmacy) Lamston’s drug store,” the 51-year-old shared.
“My hair was stiff as a board. Leaving the subway after the audition, I had on my white blouse, walking from the subway in the rain with two cans of dark mousse just running down all of me…. And now we’re just rad 51-year-olds with naturally blond hair,” she joked to Patricia.
During the interview, the mother-of-three learnt that the True Romance star also auditioned for the role of prostitute Vivian in iconic ’90s romantic comedy, Pretty Woman – the part that catapulted Julia to superstardom.
However, the studio behind the film folded three days after she got the job, and it was a meeting with director Garry Marshall that eventually secured her the part in the movie.
“I think because he’s a great human being, he met me just because I had once had the job and he felt it would only be fair to at least meet me, since I had this job for three days and then lost it,” Julia said.

Charli XCX loves how Vivienne Westwood’s clothes have the ability to turn people into punk stars.
The English singer has always been a huge fan of the punk label, and during a recent chat with Vogue Australia, she explained why she’s so drawn to the designer’s clothes.
“I remember when I was 18, I got really into Vivienne Westwood, especially all of her Sex era stuff, and was going through that phase of questioning my body, like: ‘Do I look OK? Am I thin enough? Am I curvaceous enough?'” she said. “Vivienne Westwood’s clothes have always celebrated women and the way they are, the bodies they come naturally with. She makes everybody into a punk goddess.”
Since finding fame in 2013 with her debut album True Romance, Charli has become known for her bold fashion sense.
She often mixes up her looks, switching between streetwear classics and more preppy ’90s pieces, and shared in her Vogue interview how there is generally a “messy edge” when it comes to her styling.
“I’m always the girl who falls over or accidentally f**ks up in the picture. I’m not a supermodel and I’m just like whatever, that’s me,” the star added.
As well as her singing career, Charli has also dabbled in design, working with online fashion brand Boohoo.com.
The 26-year-old is currently working on her third album, though in October 2018 she was a victim of a hack, with lots of the tracks being leaked.
