Reed teased her new color via Instagram on Friday, May 23—hinting that the change is actually for a role. "Finishing touches," she wrote. "Less than a week away from filming #TheSundayHorse."

In The Sunday Horse, based on a true story, Reed plays Debi Walden, an equestrian rider who overcomes a near-fatal accident to win the U.S. championship.

Reed and McDonald first announced their split in March after two years of marriage. "After much consideration, Nikki Reed and Paul McDonald are ending their marriage," a rep told Us at the time. "They remain best friends and look forward to their continued journey together."
