Emma Stone must have done something really bad to her stylist on the new movie The Help. In the movie, she plays a young debutante named Skeeter who writes a book from the perspective of the black maids in 1960s Jackson, Mississippi. She wants to get their employers (who are also her friends) to start treating “the help” better. The premise is a little weird, considering it’s a story of black empowerment told through the eyes of a pretty, rich white girl. Even stranger?
The terrible, terrible wigs that Emma Stone is forced to wear throughout. That still above is the most natural her hair looks throughout the whole movie. It’s an especially weird choice, considering that Emma looks like she’s starring in a makeover movie instead of a potentially powerful film about racial inequality. A girl with bad hair and glasses who keeps tripping? It’s sort of a recipe for disaster. Click through this gallery to see exactly how bad movie wigs can get.
