Eiza Gonzalez bleaches her dark hair and brows for Bulgari-filled fashion spread


Ambulance action star Eiza González decided to bleach her dark hair and brows the day before a fashion spread photographed by Jack Bridgland, despite all the apprehension from her on-set glam squad.

‘Jack was like, “Oh my God, really?”‘ the Mexican-born 32-year-old recalled to V Magazine on Monday.

‘And even on the day of, they were on the fence, [but] I was like, “Let’s just do it. It’s gonna be so cool!”‘

Hairstylist Franco Gobbi gave Eiza’s shockingly white locks a wet look for the shoot and make-up artist Porsche Poon applied her bright red pout for a much-needed pop of color.

Colorist John Clark was the man behind González’s dramatic makeover, which she first unveiled at the London premiere of Ambulance on March 23.

But the Love Spreads star must have hated it since she immediately went back to brunette just seven days later on March 30.

Eiza was the first Latin-American brand ambassador for the Italian luxury jeweler Bulgari, which was contractually included in every single image from her V spread.

Stylist Anna Trevelyan dressed González (born Reyna) in designer clothing from labels like Givenchy, Miu Miu, Prada, Emporio Armani, Jimmy Choo, Dior, and Burberry.

The lovely Latina first found fame at age 16 starring in Televisa’s teen musical telenovela, Lola: érase una vez, where she notoriously donned blackface but has since apologized.

‘There’s a lot of stereotypes of the Latin woman. We’re probably one of the most stereotyped humans on planet Earth and I think that it’s been really hard for us to deconstruct it and reeducate people,’ Eiza explained.

‘I was my own support system, and that’s something that I really find a shame. I feel like it’s part of the systemic issue of the business because there are so few seats for people like us, that its created this mentality where we can’t share with others because they’ll take from us.’

González currently plays EMT Cam Thompson in Michael Bay’s remake of Laurits Munch-Petersen’s 2005 movie Ambulancen, which received mixed reviews and only earned $50.7M from its $40M budget back.

‘I was f***ing s***ing my pants, but I just knew I needed to do it because I just really felt the obligation,’ the Spirit Untamed actress admitted.

‘I lost family members to COVID-19 and I felt like it was the one thing that I really wanted to give back to frontline responders. If it wasn’t for them, we wouldn’t be here. I also felt like a Latin woman playing an EMT who is the best at her job was a powerful move and I had to do it.’

Eiza has been ‘freezing my butt on set in London’ filming Netflix’s eight-episode alien invasion sci-fi drama The Three-Body Problem created by Game of Thrones’ David Benioff and Dan Weiss.

‘I hadn’t done television since my first job in America, which was with Robert Rodriguez, so [it’s been] 10 years,’ González noted.

‘My intentions are to play roles that completely transform me into different things. I just love the challenge of learning a lot of things – the amount of scientific information that I’ve learned doing this project is incredible.’

The Godzilla vs. Kong star will also portray Elodie in Scott Z. Burns’ star-studded, eight-episode climate change anthology drama Extrapolations for Apple TV+.

‘I got to work with Marion Cotillard and Forest Whitaker!’ Eiza gushed. 

‘I’ve had the chance after COVID where I just really felt like I wanted to do things that were not [on the] safe side, just taking risks and doing things that were gonna force people into a headlock of looking at me differently and pushing the boundaries.’

The ensemble series also features Meryl Streep, Sienna Miller, Kit Harington, Keri Russell, Matthew Rhys, Daveed Diggs, Gemma Chan, David Schwimmer, Tobey Maguire, Edward Norton, Cherry Jones, Diane Lane, Heather Graham, Judd Hirsch, and Hari Nef.

‘I’ve [had] many lives – I’ve been a child star, I’ve been a pop star, I’ve been a soap opera actress, I’ve been a Nickelodeon girl, and I’ve transitioned [in my career] to the American market,’ González said.

‘I really wanna do theatre next. Especially now that I’m living in London and going to the theater all the time, it just reminds me [of when] I started as a theatre girl.’

The Lee Strasberg student continued: ‘The theatre is just magical and allows you to be free as an actor and I really want to focus on that. I also want to start flexing my other chops, like directing…I’m really taking it seriously. So it’ll probably be sooner than, rather than later, for sure.’
