Shirley Temple 2006, still a redhead
And me, but I don't really count, because no one knows who I am and I'm not famous. Still, I do have red hair.
Wasn't that A LOT of redheads?
I know they weren't all current, but chances are you knew who most or all of them were.
I just find this very interesting.
And apparently 'redhead extinction' is a hoax, so it's not like red hair won't be around in 50 years or so, which people thought for a while starting in 2005.
Once upon a time, red hair was considered extremely undesirable...even ugly. See Anne of Green Gables.
I don't know exactly what the fascination is, but maybe it's just because red hair is DIFFERENT. In a world filled with a lot of variations of brunette and blonde, red hair stands out.
And then there's also at least three redheaded men that come to my mind...
