Anne Hathaway is lightening up -- her hair, that is!

In her recent film, "Love & Other Drugs," the 28-year-old actress sported sultry, brown curls which looked stunning against her deep expresso eyes and fair complexion -- and not to mention her naked body in the countless sans clothing scenes.

But like her attire in that movie, Hathaway has ditched the curls and the dark hair color, too.

Worn sleek and straight in a bronde hue, we spotted Hathaway sporting a new look last night at the IFP's 20th Annual Gotham Independent Film Awards in New York. And while the auburn highlights around her face gave her a warm glow, we can't help but miss her chocolate brown strands. And those curls!

What do you think of Hathaway's lighter locks? Do you prefer her as a bronde or a brunette?
