15 Famous Movies With Redheads

  ·  2nd May 2016

It’s always good to see red hair lighting up the silver screen.  In this article, we showcase 15 of the most well-known movies featuring redheads.



Probably one of the most  loved Pixar animated films . Brave has the gorgeous redhead Princess Merida, an aspiring archer and impetuous daughter of royalty.


This is 40

Leslie Mann is one of the beautiful ginger actresses that definitely doesn’t  go unnoticed. She plays Debbie, the 40-year-old mother of 2 that doesn’t want to accept her 40’s.



We all remember the movie that won the most Oscars ever but do you remember that Kate Winslet’s character was actually ginger?


Still Alice

Julianne Moore won the Oscar for Best Actress for her performance as Dr. Alice Howland. It’s a drama with an excellent cast that will touch you, for sure!


The Martian

The stunning actress Jessica Chastain was coached by NASA astronaut Tracy Dyson for her role in The Martian. Thanks to her now we know that astronauts don’t wear their wedding rings in space!




Wedding Crashers

Beautiful Isla Fisher playing Gloria, a  very stereotypical ginger character . Who seen this movie will understand !


Who framed Roger Rabbit?

“I’m not bad. I’m just drawn that way.” … She may not be real but that doesn’t make her any  less sexy and mesmerising, Jessica Rabbit everyone!


Pretty Woman

Julia Roberts  won a Golden Globe for her role as Vivian and got all the girls dreaming of the perfect man!


Jurassic World

The beautiful Bryce Dallas Howard explained that the reason she wore high heels through the entire Jurassic World movie is simply that it made more sense for her character than running barefoot. Obviously.



In Enchanted, Amy Adams is playing a Disney princess who finally dethroned Ariel as queen of the redhead characters. The beautiful actress found success once her hair turned red and she never went back to being blonde!

“I absolutely identify as a redhead,” Adams told Vogue. “Redheads have a get out of jail free card when it comes to their temper and their sense of humour. That suits my personality.”


American Pie

Alyson Hannigan, we are pretty sure most of you have seen this movie so you know what we mean. The stereotype is strong with this one!


Mean Girls

Lindsay Lohan , the cute redhead geek raised in Africa by the scientist parents meets the blonde princess. Prepare for the explosion!

“Is that your natural hair colour? It’s gorgeous.”


Harry Potter

After so many women finally a famous ginger male character: Rupert Grint aka Ron Weasley in Harry Potter. Basically, the ginger friend that everyone needs in life!


The Little Mermaid

We know, it’s very predictable and a bit of a cliché but Ariel in ’The Little Mermaid’ (Jodi Benson) still has that magical touch . Who can resist a sweet mermaid princess? Not the prince in this story, that’s for sure.


The X-Files

We all had a bit of a crush on Miss Dana Scully aka Gillian Anderson. But did you know that her character wasn’t supposed to be a redhead?

“I wasn’t a redhead at the time, I was mousy brown, and I am very glad that somebody had the idea to add a bit of color to my life.”

We are very happy that happened!

These are just a few of the gorgeous redheads that  have hooked us on the silver screens. Let us know in the comments which is your favorite ginger icon!
