There is something special about redheads that makes them stand out from the rest of people. Whether it’s a fiery mane or a muted ginger hair colour, redheads just grab everyone’s attention wherever they go. Especially, when they are famous! We don’t get to see many celebrities rock their natural red hair, but when they do – it’s a real treat for the eyes. Here are 10 most handsome male redheads ever.
This might come as a bit of a surprise to you, but Tom Hiddleston is originally ginger! He has to dye his hair for most of his roles, but his natural hair colour has a distinct red tint. Loki, one of his most famous roles, rocks black hair, but you have to admit the actor looks gorgeous with his natural colour.
Viggo Mortensen’s Aragorn stole everyone’s hearts when The Lord of the Rings came out. He looked incredibly handsome with brown hair, and he looks even more stunning as a redhead. But now if you want to enjoy his ginger look you’ll have to scroll through some old photos because his hair has become all silver grey.
Damian Lewis is one of few actors who wear their natural hair at all times. He’s handsome, ginger, and he wears that hair proudly! He’s also an amazing actor who won numerous Golden Globe awards. His most memorable roles are Nicholas Brody in Homeland and King Henry VIII in Wolf Hall.
Michael Fassbender is such a charismatic man that his stunning ginger mane often gets overlooked. Like many actors, he has to hide it most of the time, changing hair colour for different roles, but his hair is, indeed, naturally ginger. Would we love his Magneto even more if he was ginger? Probably yes!
Ewan McGregor is from Scotland, so his ginger hair doesn’t really come as a surprise. If only he looked more ginger in Star Wars! We haven’t seen him a lot on screen lately, but one of his latest works in Fargo earned him a Golden Globe award.
One might think that Benedict Cumberbatch coloured his hair to look ginger, but that is actually his natural hair colour! Yes, we rarely see him rocking a redhead look, that’s why it is even more precious when he does it. He has to change hair colour for most of his roles, going for the more conventional dark brown hue.
Historians say first mentions of redheads come from Scotland – there were no ginger-haired beauties before that! They also believe ginger hair is a result of a genetic mutation, but back in the day people didn’t know that and simply shunned redheads, connecting them with witchery and devil. Well, now we know why there are so many redheads in Scotland! Sam Heughan is a Scottish actor and he has the most gorgeous ginger mane we’ve ever seen.
