Brittany Snow, star of Pitch Perfect and Pitch Perfect 2, majorly dissed the Olsen twins–Mary-Kate and Ashley Olsen–recently. Maybe she didn’t mean to sound offensive, but her comment came off like a big insult just the same.
During a recent interview with Yahoo! Style, Snow dished on how many different shades of hair color she has used over the years, and how she doesn’t like the color that was chosen for her in Pitch Perfect 2.
“I have had every hair color!” she said. “I joke with my hair colorist. She keeps sheets of paper on every hair color that I’ve had so she has records of it all. She’s done my hair since I was 15 and I guess I have a thick folder going because I’ve had so many different hair colors.”
“I think my least favorite hair color was the hair color that I had in Pitch Perfect 2. They really wanted me to be dark red and I wanted to be lighter like I was in the first movie, but they didn’t want that. But I rocked some light red for a year, after it faded,” she adds.

“I don’t get recognized that often,” she said.
“I used to get recognized for being the Olsen Twins a lot, which was a compliment,” she added. “Not so much anymore.”
Will Mary-Kate and Ashley Olsen insist that all their friends boycott Pitch Perfect 2 after that diss?
But wait a minute. Did Brittany Snow mean she didn’t think it was a compliment any more to be mistaken for the Olsen twins? Or did she simply mean she isn’t mistaken for them–or at least one of them–any more?
