Redheads are real stunners as their fiery mane captures everyone’s attention. And it’s not just about their uncommon shade of hair either—there is also something about their personality that can be quite intriguing and interesting. They exude confidence, exquisiteness, and a fiery temper that is often associated with those who sport this hair color. There is no denying that seeing redheads can captivate a man’s eyes as they are now deemed rarities in a world where brunettes and blondes are considered the norm. We are not saying that redheads are better than brunettes and blondes; we think they are all beautiful in their own way. We just would like to celebrate all the redheads, who are fewer in number than brunettes and blondes and ladies with other hair colors, who sometimes go unnoticed and are overshadowed by other women with more common hair shades.
Here, we present to you 10 natural redheaded female celebrities who will wow you with their beauty and charm, as well as with their impressive career in Hollywood. And we even throw in five stunning celebrities who are not natural-born redheads but have rocked red locks at some point in their career.
15. Jessica Chastain
Redheads are quite rare in Hollywood—you can probably literally count the number of ginger-haired Hollywood beauties on your two hands. Jessica Chastain is one of them and she has truly made a name for herself in the movie industry. Her stunning good looks and her beautiful red hair, as well as her incredible acting skills, landed her several roles in high-grossing films like Interstellar and The Martian. She’s not hard to miss in either movie as her striking red hair can be easily spotted, although the gorgeous color of her hair is somewhat muted in Interstellar compared to The Martian. Chastain also starred in Zero Dark Thirty and The Huntsman Winter’s War. We definitely won’t be seeing the last of this gorgeous redhead anytime soon.
14. Rose Leslie
If you don’t know who Rose Leslie is, it’s safe to say you’ve been living under a rock. This redhead’s charm was catapulted into the limelight after she played the role of Jon Snow’s lover in the popular HBO series Game of Thrones. While her ginger hair truly looked quite stunning in the field of snow, it was her acting that caught everyone’s attention. Watching her slay her enemies with a bow and arrow was very enjoyable. Although Leslie’s role in GOT ended in the third season, her acting career did not stop there. As a matter of fact, you can see her in The Good Fight, in which she plays one of the main characters. She also starred in the movies The Last Dance and Morgan, both of which came out in 2016.
13. Laura Prepon
If you’ve never seen That ‘70s Show, then you probably only know Laura Prepon as the black-haired, rock star-looking Alex Vause in the hit drama series Orange is the New Black. But if you’ve seen her ’70s sitcom before, then you’ve seen her as a ginger alongside Mila Kunis, Ashton Kutcher, Topher Grace, Danny Masterson and Wilmer Valderrama. According to Prepon, she dyed her hair black for her role in Orange is the New Black. While she does look pretty with her red hair, we can’t deny that she looks just as great with black hair. If you wan to see more of her, she’s starred in the films Southlander, Come Early Morning, Lay the Favorite, The Girl on the Train and most recently The Hero.
12. Bryce Dallas Howard
Another redhead that made the list is Bryce Dallas Howard. This American beauty has played the protagonist in a few of M. Night Shyamalan’s movies, such as The Village and the Lady in the Water. But she only became more recognizable to audiences when she starred in The Twilight Saga: Eclipse as the vampire Victoria. Reports say she was actually a fan of the book. If you were too cool to watch Twilight, then you probably saw her for the first time in the commercially successful science-fiction movie Jurassic World, beside Chris Pratt. If you liked her portrayal of the control freak aunt who needed help saving her lost nephews on an island filled with dinosaurs, we have some good news for you: she’s reprising her role in the next Jurassic World film.
11. Isla Fisher
Isla Fisher’s tiny frame couldn’t bottle her amazing talent as this stunning redhead is not only a popular actress but is also a famed writer. Fisher first starred in a popular soap in Australia, Home and Away when she was young and has since broadened her horizons in Hollywood. After making a name for herself, she’s landed a role in The Great Gatsby and Now You See Me, both of which were huge commercial successes. Fisher’s acting roles are actually quite diverse, from playing the blonde Mary Jane in Scooby-Doo to starring in a rom-com alongside Elizabeth Banks and Ryan Reynolds to locking lips with Gal Gadot in Keeping Up with the Joneses. To add to her list of accomplishments, Fisher just published her first ever children’s book last year.
10. Kate Mara
Kate Mara had stepped out of the shadows of her family name and made her way to Hollywood using her good looks, fiery hair and professional acting skills, all of which helped her make it to the list of gorgeous redheads now making a wave in the acting industry. Her first break was when she starred in Random Hearts with Harrison Ford back in 1999. From there, this charming redhead took on more roles in movies such as Brokeback Mountain, Shooter, Stone of Destiny and The Martian. If you missed her on The Martian, it’s because she dyed her red hair. Despite her movie roles, however, she’s probably more commonly known by audiences as the reporter Zoe Barnes in the award-winning TV series House of Cards.
9. Alicia Witt
Alicia Witt may not be a familiar name for many but this redheaded beauty has a lot of accomplishments to her name. A classical pianist, Witt landed roles where she portrayed musically gifted characters and often used her skills with musical instruments. You’ve probably seen this beauty and brains alongside actors such as Tom Cruise in Vanilla Sky, Chris Noth in Law and Order: Criminal Intent, and Al Pacino in 88 Minutes. Witt also lent her acting skills to The Walking Dead where she played Paula in Season 6 who crossed paths with Maggie and Carol. Apart from taking on movies and TV roles, Witt takes music seriously as well. In fact, she is a singer-songwriter and has really put her singing-songwriting abilities to use in her stint in Hollywood—something she’s not shy to admit.
8. Angie Everhart
Angie Everhart may be in her late 40s now, but she doesn’t pale in comparison to the other redhead beauties in this list. A former model, Everhart has posed for fashion magazines like Glamour and Elle, as well as for Sports Illustrated swimsuit edition. After making her film debut in 1993 in Last Action Hero, she appeared in Jade and Take Me Home Tonight. She also starred in The Real Gilligan’s Island but she left the show after accidentally cutting her finger severely. Everhart isn’t only known for her modeling and acting career. Her long red locks garnered her three Crown Awards for “Best Redhead” in the years 2005 to 2007 at the Super-Hair.Net website. In addition, she won the championship in two Super-Hair World Cup tournaments, in 2006 and 2010.
7. Karen Gillan
It’s hard to wrap your head around the fact that Karen Gillan played Nebula in Marvel’s Guardians of the Galaxy franchise and that she had to shave her beautiful red hair for the role in Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 2. But even before starring in this hit movie, Gillan already proved her acting skills when she landed a supporting role in the TV series Doctor Who, as the doctor’s companion in the 11th season. Gillan showed that she can take on various roles from being a fun and quirky companion to being a skilled fighter in Guardians of the Galaxy. She will next be seen in Jumanji: Welcome to the Jungle which is set to be released in December this year. The movie is a tribute to late actor Robin Williams.
6. Lauren Ambrose
Who would have thought that Lauren Ambrose was already 23 when she played the character of teenager Claire Fisher in Six Feet Under? Her ginger hair wasn’t the only thing that made her stand out; her acting prowess was also attention-catching. Having the skill to pull off a teen role at that age was remarkable, and she even won two Screen Actors Guild Awards for this role. But this isn’t the only show Ambrose is known for. She was also in Can’t Hardly Wait and Sleepwalk with Me. Her more recent role was in the latest installment of the X-Files, where she played Agent Einstein. Ambrose will be bringing her red mane to Broadway where she was cast to play the lead in the show My Fair Lady.
5. Emma Stone
Emma Stone is one of those beauties that is never tiring to look at. A very talented actress, she’s portrayed different types of characters from a wide range of genres. She even has the awards to prove this amazing talent: an Academy Award, a Golden Globe Award, three Screen Actor Guild Awards and one BAFTA Award. Her breakthrough was the teen comedy film Easy A, in which she portrayed 17-year-old Olive Penderghast. She has taken on more mature roles since then, including her roles in Crazy, Stupid, Love, The Amazing Spider-Man, Aloha, and the commercially successful and critically acclaimed La La Land. While Stone looks absolutely stunning with blonde hair, we believe she’s more suited to having red locks, since her pretty face looks like it was made for red hair.
4. Scarlett Johansson
Scarlett Johansson has had a long, successful career in Hollywood. She debuted in 1994 and rose to fame in 1998 thanks to her role in the movie The Horse Whisperer. She later had her breakthrough in Ghost World in 2001. Now, she’s one of the world’s highest-paid actresses and even has a star on the Hollywood Walk of Fame. Thanks to her sex symbol status, she has appeared multiple times in published lists of the hottest women in the world. For many years, we were all used to seeing her with blonde locks, but this changed when she landed the role of Black Widow in the Marvel Cinematic Universe. According to reports, while red hair indeed looked amazing on her, she wasn’t overly fond of it.
3. Blake Lively
Blake Lively rose to fame when she landed the role of “it” girl Serena van der Woodsen in the teen drama TV series Gossip Girl. From there, she went on to star in various movies like Age of Adaline, Green Lantern, The Private Lives of Pippa Lee, Shallows, Savages and Café Society. A total beauty, Lively was named the most desirable woman of 2011 by AskMen.com and one of 2012’s Most Beautiful at Every Age by People magazine. Everyone thought Lively was always going to be blonde, until she surprised everyone by dying her hair red for the movie Hick. Although she truly looks gorgeous with blonde hair, seeing her rock red hair is also quite pleasing. Her natural hair color, unexpectedly, is actually brown.
2. Kate Winslet
Even though Kate Winslet has appeared in a lot of movies, her role as Rose opposite Leonardo DiCaprio’s Jack in the movie Titanic is probably the most iconic of all. And wouldn’t it be? The film was the first to hit the billion-dollar mark and was also the highest-grossing film of all time until Avatar surpassed it in 2010. Not to mention Winslet looked totally exceptional with red hair in the movie. She actually had to dye her hair red for the role, and we’re all happy she did. But in recent years, she’s only appeared in movies with blonde hair. Among the movies she starred in include Collateral Beauty, The Mountain Between Us, Triple 9, The Dressmaker, Steve Jobs, The Divergent Series and A Little Chaos.
Who hasn’t heard of Rihanna? This Barbadian singer, actress and songwriter rose to fame in 2005 with the release of her studio albums Music of the Sun and A Girl Like Me. Two years later, she released her lead single “Umbrella”, which became an international breakthrough in her singing career. She has taken the world by storm since, and now has millions of fans from all corners of the globe. Obviously, Rihanna isn’t a natural-born redhead, but if you’re a fan you must have already seen her rock a flaming red shade of hair. This isn’t the only daring hair color she’s tried, however, as Rihanna has also dyed her hair several different shades of blonde, gray and turquoise. No matter the shade her hair is, she always rocks it.
