We hear stories about how actresses have to do many things to get roles in Hollywood, and now Amy Adams has spoken about how changing her hair color landed her more jobs.

This isn’t the first time that Amy Adams has spoken about her experiences working in the movie industry. The star has previously opened up about how she knew that she was being paid less than her male co-stars when filming American Hustle. Similarly, Adams has also talked about her insecurities when it comes to her career, too.

Now Amy Adams has revealed about how changing her hair color from strawberry blonde to red helped her get roles in Hollywood.

As People report, Adams was speaking at the New York Times-hosted TimesTalk when she made the revelation.

Hmm, this doesn’t seem okay AT ALL.

Continuing, Adams went on to say that she enjoyed the fact that perceptions of her changed.

In fact, it helped her as an actor.

Adams’ comments feed into a wider conversation about sexism and misogyny in Hollywood.

In fact, fellow actor Mila Kunis wrote a powerful op-ed for A Plus about the double standards and how she was over not vocalizing her concerns and problems when it came to her career.

While Adams doesn’t overtly make any comments regarding sexism in the industry, it’s something that is certainly still prevalent.

The fact that a person can be judged for specific roles over something as surface as hair color seems pretty outdated and ridiculous, especially given how easy it now is to change it. It’s a perfect example of the sort of microaggressions that women face on a daily basis.

So, while it’s great that Adams learned something from the experience, it still seems unfair and kind of ridiculous.
