5 Famous Redheads Who Make Me Proud To Be a Natural Ginger

Jessica Chastain is getting
showered with praise for her role in drama ”Zero Dark Thirty,” leading many to believe she could win Best Actress this awards season. But as faithful fans of the California native know, this isn’t the first time she’s received recognition for her onscreen work. The redhead was nominated for Best Supporting Actress for her portrayal as the sweet but clueless Celia Foote in 2012 flick, “The Help.” There’s a lot more to come from this budding celebrity, and as a natural ginger, I love seeing famous redheads create a reputation for themselves in the media. Here are five redheads who give the rare lock color a good name and influence wannabes to dye their hair and try to fit in, even though it’s easy to spot fakers. positive
Chastain plays a confident, determined CIA operative who believes she knows the whereabouts of terrorist Osama Bin Laden in "Zero Dark Thirty." Though I have yet to see the film, Chastain has been getting many
thumbs up for her performance, perhaps most notably from The Huffington Post: "Chastain's powerfully controlled performance – a spectacular showcase for this versatile actress' many talents and a long-overdue leading role – is emblematic of the film as a whole. ..Quietly reserved at first as she watches a colleague (the commanding Jason Clarke) rough up a suspect during an interrogation – and [director] Bigelow doesn't shy away from the brutality of such torture, let's call it by its name – [Chastain's character] Maya soon asserts herself with her exhaustive research and inner drive." If you can't make it out to the cinema to see "Zero Dark Thirty" anytime soon, catch her on DVD in "Lawless" and "The Help" to get a feel for her talents.
Where to even start with Julianne Moore? Most recently, she portrayed former Alaska governor Sarah Palin in HBO drama, "Game Change," for which she won an Emmy. She's received four Academy Award nominations in her career and stood out in 2010 film, "The Kids Are All Right." She also has a much-anticipated role in the newest "Carrie" remake, in which she plays the crazy religious nut mother. If Julianne Moore is involved in a project, you know it's going to be good.
Many people criticized "Julie & Julia," but Adams did a nice job as defeatist struggling writer, Julie Powell. Let's not forget her performance in 2007 treasure, "Enchanted," which is supposedly getting a sequel, and upcoming portrayal of Janis Joplin. Amy Adams has been in lots of successful and entertaining movies, and she'll surely sign onto more in 2013.
The Australian celebrity has been in the business for a very long time, and for good reason. She's the first
Australian actress to win the Best Actress award, wowed in 2001 musical film, "Moulin Rouge!", and stars alongside Zac Efron in "The Paperboy." She'll never lose her image as a well-respected, resilient actress, especially since she seems to put her work above all and stays out of the tabloids, no easy feat for a former wife of Tom Cruise.
She married Borat. Enough said.
