A guest blog by Josh Burt out of that Interestment.co.uk:
Gingers, they have such a rotten time of it at school.
Teased for having hair similar in colour to a brick or a vegetable, denied friends because of the pallid hue of their skin. Some, they say, are so pale that you can make out the dark outline of their organs.
And yet, if you look closely, and put down your prejudice for a second, you might see that some of these so-called redheads are completely magnificent, not just on the eye, but also on the mind. But mainly on the eye. Here are the four most delicious Wotsits we’ve ever seen. Editors note: We could include the very hot Amy Adams but technically, she isn’t a real redhead (she’s a blonde).
1. Christina Hendricks
Mad Men, what a show! It’s set in the 1960s, in advertising, people smoke. And that’s actually it. There is nothing else. Except, for this woman, who plays a tempestuous flame-haired maniac, who spends the majority of her time making young, impressionable secretaries think they’re working as prostitutes, or explaining to company directors that their ink supplies are down, only in the manner of a phone sex worker describing her breasts.
Here she is enduring the fat one from N Sync:
2. Molly Ringwald
Once, Molly Ringwald had the world at her feet. She wowed us all in Sixteen Candles by taking her pants off, then took things up a notch in The Breakfast Club by applying lipstick using her bosoms. And then came her tour de force ? Pretty In Pink. Anyone who didn’t weep as she embodied a troubled girl from the wrong side of the tracks attempting to fit in with feather-haired toffs called Stef and Blane simply doesn’t have a soul. After that, she turned down Pretty Woman and Ghost, but still maintained a fine scalp of shocking orange hair. A great woman.
Here she is texting:
3. Laura Prepon
For those who don’t know, Laura Prepon is an American lady who played the part of a tall ginger-haired girl in the US Ashton Kutcher vehicle That 70s Show. Her flowing orange juice locks and Amazonian frame perfectly juxtaposed the weediness of the main character, Eric. On the downside, her voice could occasionally veer into honking-simpleton territory.
Here she is in a night dress:
4. Paul Scholes
Of course, not all beautiful redheaded people are women, some of the men are totally drop dead gorgeous as well. Axl Rose, Henry VIII, Vincent Van Gogh, the little angry Scotsman in Lord of the Rings. But we had to plump for Paul Scholes. He might not have David Beckham‘s looks, nor Lineker‘s dry wit, nor Defoe‘s unquenchable craving for women. But he has got ginger hair, and this list is for redheads only. In by default.
Here he is scoring some goals:
Finished? Good. Now go and visit Josh Burt at Interestment now. Now. Do it now.
