Jennifer Aniston has revealed she fought hard to make sure her new character was a brunette.

The former Friends star - whose 'Rachel' haircut became one of the most sought-after styles of the 1990s - went against the wishes of studio bosses and ditched her trademark blonde locks to play a racy, dark-haired dentist in Horrible Bosses.

"We had this wonderful period of time I do call Hair Gate," she told the Chicago Sun Times. "The studio didn't want me to wear a wig. I was told, 'No one will know who you are.' I said, 'They will know my name from the credits'."

Jennifer added: "There was just no way I could be saying those words and not look somewhat different."

The actress also insisted that while she does appear in a medical jacket with no bra underneath, rumours of a topless scene in the film aren't true.

"I have no idea where those rumours started, but it's a good rumour," she added.

Jennifer was keen to play a female predator in the workplace.

She said: "It's usually the male character in that role... That's why I thought of her like a guy. Other than that I just stuck to what was in the script. I didn't have any input as to what she said. That was all on the page. And I was tickled and excited. The raunchier, the better."
