In the past, red hair has carried a stigma of unattractiveness. People have this idea that blondes have more fun, men prefer brunettes, and redheads have freckles that are cute only when they’re young. Well there are a handful of woman that have blown those theories out of the water. Below, in no particular order, are some hot celebrity redheads that keep drawing the attention of Hollywood and men everywhere.
Alicia Witt has been appearing in films since 1984. Her most recent role is alongside Al Pacino in the thriller “88 Minutes.” You may also know her from “The Sopranos” or as Detective Nola Falacci in “Law & Order: Criminal Intent.” Witt has embraced her hair color and she looks good doing it!
“It’s unusual, and whether people like it or not, it always attracts attention. I think that red hair is extremely sexy. It’s also really versatile.”

I struggled whether to include Lindsay Lohan because, as she is obviously a natural redhead, she doesn’t seem to embrace it like the others. Lohan has dyed her hair just about every possible color, when she really looks best with her auburn locks.
Marcia Cross is a wonderful actress known mostly for her role on “Desperate Housewives.” Marcia and her red hair have seen some controversy as there were widely published rumors that Marcia was gay. Marcia went as far as to appear on “The View” to announce her support of the gay community, but she was not a lesbian. Marcia has since married Tom Mahoney and the couple have twin daugthers. The beautiful babies look like they may have inherited Marcia’s red hair!
Nicole Kidman is the classic red head beauty. In 2006, she became one of the highest paid actresses in motion picture history. Her breakout role was in “Dead Calm” and Kidman went on to garner multiple Golden Globe nominations and win an Oscar for Best Actress for her role in “The Hours.” When you think of a beautiful Hollywood redhead, Nicole Kidman is definitely at the top of the list.
Julianne Moore and her signature red hair have been nominated for an Academy Award four times, but has yet to win the golden statue. She’s also been nominated for five Golden Globes, winning only once in 1994 for Best Ensemble Cast in “Short Cuts.” Julianne is currently filming two movies and has three other in production phases. She might be the hardest working redheaded actress out there.
Debra Messing will forever be known for her role as Grace Adler in “Will & Grace.” She has awesome comedic timing and very beautiful at the same time. In 2002, she was named one of the “50 Most Beautiful People in the World” by People Magazine and TV Guide picked her as its “Best Dressed Woman” in 2003.
The 61-year-old Susan Sarandon is one of the most accomplished redheads on the list. Sarandon has been working in Hollywood since 1970 and it doesn’t look like she’s slowing down. In that time, she’s won one Oscar for her role in “Dead Man Walking.” Susan is also very active on the political scene being appointed as a UNICEF Goodwill Ambassador in 1999.
Angie Everhart started modeling at age 15. She was on the cover of ELLE and Glamour, which was the first time a redhaired girl had ever graced the cover. She has appeared in Sports Illustrated and posed in the February 2000 issue of Playboy. Angie also made the list of FHM’s hottest 100 woman, although I think she should’ve been higher than #98. Angie was busted for a DUI not too long ago and was once engaged to Joe Pesci. What?

Julia Roberts won our hearts in “Pretty Woman” and hasn’t slowed down since. She won an Oscar for “Erin Brokovich” and was the highest-paid actress in the world for four consecutive years starting in 2002. Another redhead, Nicole Kidman took over in 2006. Julia is tied with Halle Berry for being one of People magazine’s “50 Most Beautiful People in the World” eleven times.
