"I had a really good time being brunette, but being blonde… I've had an equally good time. Guys check me out more, which is weird," she told Us.

Roberts prefers the new 'do, inspired by her role in drama It's Kind of a Funny Story (costarring Zach Galifianakis; out in November 2010).

"I wanted to change it up… I feel happier as a blonde," said the actress, who donned Miu Miu to the premiere. "I feel quite peppy lately."

She says she'll keep the look for awhile.

"It took literally two days to get it from brown to blonde, so I'm kind of not looking forward to spending 48 hours in the hair chair yet again," she told Us.
