Famous Red Heads Speak About Their Red Hair – National Love Your Red Hair Day

Earlier this week was National Love Your Red Hair Day. Max shared a few of our own talent already and now we wanted to share some memorable quotes from famous red heads about their red hair!

Julianne Moore
WNYC Studios

“My grandmother always said my red hair was my calling card! And I never realized how much I identified with it until I had to dye it blonde years ago for a role. It felt so weird, and I couldn’t wait to go back to my regular shade.”

Molly Ringwald
The Independent

“It shapes your personality a bit. What I always say is that brunettes are beautiful, and blondes get a lot of attention, but the people that love redheads really love redheads.”

Bryce Dallas Howard
Digital Spy

“My parents are both redheads, so they knew I was going to be a redhead. They just thought Bryce Canyon was very strong and it is red. And they thought it was beautiful. So they named me Bryce.”

“As a child, I didn’t want to be different – I wanted to look the same as everyone else because I didn’t want to be singled out.
“I was ridiculed for having red hair; for having freckles. But whatever you are ridiculed about that makes you different is what you’ll celebrate in the future. If I wanted to dye my hair, I could, but I realized that’s who I am, and my differences make me special.”

Lindsay Lohan

“I love my red hair. It makes me spunkier.”

Karen Gillian
Geek Tyrant

“I got teased for being a redhead when I was younger, which is strange because I’m Scottish and there are loads of us – we should unite forces! I love my red hair.”

Damian Lewis
ABC News

“The redhead stock is very high at the moment. This might be a unique moment in recent history: redheads everywhere are doing well – Prince Harry, Ed Sheeran, Julianne Moore, me, Lily Cole.”

Michael Fassbender
USA Today

“I’m a ginger, and there’s not much more fun you can get as a ginger. And I think that’s why there’s a lot of resentment toward the ginger community. We’re vikings, essentially.”

Jesse Tyler Ferguson

“Having red hair is never good when you’re a kid. I was picked on a lot and didn’t have a lot of friends. But I think that gave me a thick skin and helped make me a better person.”

Isla Fisher
Ace Showbiz

“It was great having red hair as a kid because I had something to blame my temper on.”
