15 Red-Hot Photos Of Hollywood Redheads

There is a reason why men go crazy over a redhead — they are considered to be the unicorns of the female world, a truly “special” species. Though redheads are known to have passionate natures and fiery personalities, being a redhead doesn’t automatically deem you crazy, nor does it mean that you are guaranteed to have a wild night of passion either. After all, not everyone can pull off red hair, especially if it isn’t your natural color. The ones that do are confident beasts that roam the Earth with a fiery, and sometimes sassy, purpose.

The redheads of the world have a quick wit, and if nothing else, they are sure to keep you on your feet. Hollywood is full of these gorgeous and sultry creatures and they are just as mesmerizing on the big screen as they are in real life. Something this red-hot must have a soul! Not only are these foxy redheads talented, but they're also quite successful. Here are 15 Photos Of Redheads Who Are Red Hot!

15 Amy Adams

This sultry redhead has never looked better, and she’s quite the spitfire in Hollywood. No matter if she's posing on the red carpet or hitting the grocery store, her we're always envious of her luscious red locks. You may think that she looks innocent with those big, blue doe eyes, but you couldn’t be more wrong. She’s made quite a career for herself in Hollywood with movies like Arrival and American Hustle. You may have thought this stunner was a real redhead, but you would be wrong. She might be a former blonde, but this golden red hair fits her to a tee. “When I died my hair red the first time, I felt as if it was what nature intended. I have been accused of being a bit of a spitfire, so in that way, I absolutely live up to the stereotype. The red hair suits my personality. I was a terrible blonde!”

14 Madelaine Petsch

This saucy redhead just joined the Hollywood scene a few years ago, but we are thankful that she's arrived. In a revealing yellow top, this redhead really stands out. She’s stunning and yes, that hair is completely natural. These days, she is making headlines because of her portrayal of the cold-as-ice Cheryl in the TV show Riverdale. It’s her first big role and she is totally rocking it. She is a stunner and many people have asked if her assets are all real. Gasp! “Yes. All the time. If my hair is real, if my eyelashes are real, my butt's real. It's constant. It's all real. All natural, baby! And I’m a natural redhead. It's funny because I was made fun of for it so much as a kid. I grew up in a small town and I was the only redhead other than my brother. We had South African accents, I was a vegan, I was raised without religion. I was just the weirdest kid in this small town, so I got made fun of a lot for it. My brother got stones thrown at him! So now, I very much embrace it and want people to know I'm a natural redhead and proud of that.”

13 Julia Roberts

Remember how Julia Roberts used to walk through Hollywood with a head of messy red hair? It made its mark in movies like Pretty Woman and Flatliners. These days, although she lets her red shine through every now and then, she keeps her mane tamed for the most part. Her career has been iconic in the industry and she’s certainly come a long way from the sexy girl in Mystic Pizza. This redhead says she doesn’t have that fiery temper that is usually associated with redheads. We’re not sure if we believe it, though, considering all the rumors in the media over the years. “I don't get angry very often. I lose my temper rarely. And when I do, there's always a legitimate cause. Normally, I have a great lightness of being. I take things in a very happy, amused way.” Either way, we absolutely adore this sexy redhead.

12 Lana Del Rey

Lana Del Rey is one songstress that doesn’t worry about her curves — she embraces them with pride, as she should. We can’t help but appreciate this sultry, yet casual. photo of her. Even with a laissez-faire look to her, she looks effortlessly stunning. She believes in love wholeheartedly and says if it’s real, then it should be electrifying. Isn’t that something? “When I found somebody who I fell in love with, it made me feel different than I felt the rest of the day. It was electrifying. That's what inspired the 'Off to the Races' melodies. That's one of the times when you're feeling electrified by someone else and they make you happy to be alive.” Whatever she’s describing, we want it too!

11 Nicole Kidman

With the body of a dancer and hair that literally looks like it’s on fire, Nicole Kidman is one of the iconic redheads in Hollywood. She also has the sexy and fiery personality that goes along with it. She was recently in Big Little Lies with Reese Witherspoon and has been in a number of movies in the last few years. She will be in Aquaman, in 2018 and we look forward to seeing her represent that red hair. Her career certainly isn’t slowing down anytime soon. This woman looks amazing for her age and that’s because she takes very good care of herself. Despite claims of Botox and surgery, Kidman says she would never go under the knife. “To be honest, I am completely natural. I have nothing in my face or anything. I wear sunscreen, and I don't smoke. I take care of myself and I'm very proud to say that.”

10 Jessica Chastain

We love this elegant and sexy photo of her in lingerie while she’s casually chatting on the phone. This foxy redhead has been around Hollywood for some time now and has built a pretty cool career out of it. She’s been in some pretty awesome movies over the years. You may recognize her from Zero Dark Thirty, The Help, Crimson Peak, and The Martian. She also has six projects in post-production, so this girl is definitely busy. She’s also superstitious, which is sort of quirky. “Okay, I'm going to let you in on a little secret: I'm a very superstitious person. I'm walking onto the plane as we speak. I'm putting my hands on the outside of the plane and my feet are on the lip of the plane. I have to do it every time before I fly.” Well, if that’s what keeps the plane in the air, all the power to you.

9 Christina Hendricks

Is this the recreation of Rapunzel? If so we couldn’t be happier! This is a medieval-looking photo that makes us love redheads even more. Christina Hendricks is one actress that has embraced her curves, being one not to conform. She has an amazing body and that red hair is just perfect for her. You might be surprised to find out that she has a weird fixation with clowns. She knew that she found the man of her dreams when he took in her weird fascination and accepted it without complaint. “When I first started dating my husband, I had this weird fascination with the circus and clowns and old carnival things and sideshow freaks and all that. About a month after we started dating, he bought me this amazing black-and-white photo book on the circus in the 1930s, and I started sobbing.” Sounds like a man after her own heart.

8 Kate Mara

Kate Mara has been in the industry since she was a young girl, and she’s mapped out quite the career for herself. She is a natural redhead and definitely has a spicy personality. She is most recently known for her role as Zoe in House of Cards, as well as the creepy seductress in American Horror Story. She’s got a couple of movies coming out this year and we are looking forward to seeing more of this redhead on the big screen. If you have always gotten a mysterious vibe from this actress, it isn’t just the red hair. She believes in keeping her private life away from the media. “All the actors I respect, especially old-Hollywood actors, the reason I think so many of them have had long careers is that there is a sort of mystery about them. You don't know what they do on Friday nights or when they get home from work. You have no clue. You have this sort of fantasy about them.”

7 Emma Stone

Emma Stone is definitely one of the sexiest redheads in Hollywood. It totally suits her, especially with those big blue eyes. The red hair and pale skin combination is truly a sexy and unique one. She has been making headlines for her awesome career lately and she has every reason to be proud. She’s certainly one of the most sought-after actresses in Hollywood these days. When it comes to her body, she likes a sleek look, not one that shows she goes to the gym all the time. “I like to look like a person. It drives me crazy when you see women in movies playing teachers and they have biceps. It totally takes me out of the movie. I start thinking, Wow, that actress playing this part really looks great!” It’s true, and that’s certainly the case with Cameron Diaz.

6 Lily Cole

Wow! Big blues eyes, pale skin, and fiery red hair? Check, check, check. This girl has it all. Lily Cole has been modelling and acting and we can’t get enough of her. She has an unusual look that many people find very appealing. You may recognize her from movies such as The Messenger, Snow White and the Huntsman, and The Imaginarium of Doctor Parnassus. She’s been in the TV series Doctor Who and Elizabeth I. Not everyone loves a redhead and Cole has experienced some hate over the years. “When I was younger, I definitely did face anti-ginger prejudice. As a child, all teasing hurts, whether it's because you're fat or a different race or have red hair. I had enough comments from a couple of people to make it a sore point.”

5 Lindsay Lohan

We don’t know why Lindsay Lohan ever traded in her red hair for the blonde look. It totally suited her and gave her a foxiness that blonde locks just never did. She was also looking a lot healthier back then. These days, we don’t really know if Lohan will ever be able to revive her career. But, she has been back working on projects, so you never know. She always looked so much better when she was curvier and sporting her awesome red hair. These days, you can find Lohan on the TV series Sick Note. “This is what I asked for, and in this day and age, that's what actually goes on. But what hurts me the most is that I work just as hard as any other actress around my age, like Scarlett Johansson, but I just don't get the opportunities that they get because people are so distracted by the mess that I created in my life.”

4 Kate Winslet

We’re not sure where this fox is running to, but she looks amazing with her loose red curls and that sexy red dress. We fell in love with Kate and her red locks from the moment we saw her in Titanic. These days, she’s sporting a blonder image and we wonder if we will see her natural look again. She’s still one of the hottest redheads in Hollywood, though. Winslet always looks amazing and has been adamant that she opposes plastic surgery for herself. “Plastic surgery and breast implants are fine for people who want that, if it makes them feel better about who they are. But, it makes these people, actors especially, fantasy figures for a fantasy world. Acting is about being real, being honest.” She is truly a real woman and we love the career that she has built for herself in Hollywood.

3 Julianne Moore

Julianne Moore is such a babe, right? She is a true redhead that has embraced her look for years. Another popular actress, Julianne has always had a strong career in Hollywood. She’s not only embraced her red hair, but she’s also aged so gracefully. “With actors, all our ages are out there for all to see — you can't hide anything, really. And it's kind of a relief. This is my age, this is what I look like without makeup on — who cares? That youth culture— that lying about your age — it's all denial of death anyway.” We get to see Moore in the second instalment of Kingsman: The Golden Circle. We can’t wait to see her light up the screen once again.

2 Gillian Anderson

This was shot for Fox in 2008.

Dressed casually, this girl still looks like a sexy siren. We miss the days when we used to see that curly red hair on The X-Files. She literally hasn’t done anything since The X-Files, which is really weird since she was so good in the TV series. She does, however, have three projects set to release in 2018. Whether she was influenced by the show or not, Anderson has quite a unique belief system. “My whole belief system is that our paths are drawn for us. I believe in reincarnation. I believe we're here to learn and grow. We choose how we come into this life based on what it is we have to learn. Some people have harder lessons than others.”

1 Eva Amurri

Eva Amurri is the sexy daughter of Susan Sarandon. Can’t you see the resemblance. We love how cute she looks in this photo. She’s playing coy with that awesome red hair just like her mother's. She also followed in her mother's footsteps. She hasn’t done quite as well in Hollywood as her mother, but she still has lots of time. You may recognize her from TV shows such as How I Met Your Mother, Friends, and The Secret Life of Marilyn Monroe. She is also a mother and has a lot of respect for the teachers that help raise her children. “Honestly, I don't know if I'd want to be an educator. I find teachers to have more responsibility, in a way, than being a parent. You're molding hundreds of minds every year.” We couldn’t agree more.
