Blondes and brunettes? You can keep them. celebrity redheads, aka the gingers are what we want to see. Even though they can’t keep out in the sun for too long and they have no souls we still wish to pay homage to them, with their tiny freckles, orange hair and fair skin tones.
We believe that ginger celebrities get the stick for no reason which isn’t right in our book. You always get the argument that gingers come under two categories: smoking hot, and can you please buy me a new mirror please! I guess we would agree a smidge. And we did once hear someone say: Redheads are members of the canine family…. They are either Foxes or Dogs.
Sit back and bask in all the top 10 hottest ginger celebrity babe glory, and please try and reframe from touching yourself while you read – god judges us all, yes, he knows what you’re doing… Plus, you don’t want to go blind do you?
Also, at no point have we said “natural celebrity redheads”, so don’t be crying like a little b**ch in the comments saying Nicole Kidman is a natural blonde.
