Courtney Stodden, who recently split from husband Doug Hutchison last month, has changed her trademark platinum tresses for something a little darker, and she says she feels great.
"Lately I've been a little bit of a daredevil, and I'm trying to enter into the next chapter of my life," she said. "I thought this was kind of a good example to prove to myself that I can do it. It was a huge risk, but I'm glad I did it."
Stodden made a name for herself at just 16 when she married "The Green Mile" actor Hutchison, who was 51 at the time. Since then, the couple have made waves by showing off very public displays of affection and entering couples counseling on the VH1 show "Couples Therapy". Stodden was also a contestant on "Big Brother UK", but now the 19-year old says she's ready to do the things she never got to do...like be a teenager.
"When I was 16 I got my marriage license, but I didn't get my driver's license," she said. "So those kinds of things I'm really excited about doing."
As for the new hair, it's going to take some getting used to.
"It's really new. When I walk by a mirror I'm thinking I'm blonde," she said. "Like, 'Oh my God -- who is that? It's me!' I feel born again. I'm excited to go out and see the life of a brunette."
