If we could only have one ginger throughout history, it should be Lucille Ball. Not only was she a comedic genius, but she helped pave the way for women in entertainment. Besides being fabulous, funny and smart -- she was beautiful.
Go ahead, say it, "I LOVE LUCY!"
Handsome, rugged, brave, fun-loving and a bit on the wild side, Prince Harry is the world's most eligible bachelor and only a fool wouldn't want to run their fingers through his glorious ginger mane.
Prince Harry is bringing the sexy, and its red all over.
Hot damn, Ann Margaret is one hot tamale!
No one has ever made a career out of being a flamed-haired hottie quite like Ann. She stands as shining example to all of us gingers!
It's Team Coco all the way baby!
Conan O'Brien has dug his way out of the late night trenches and into our hearts. He's embraced his ginger-ness and brought pride to those who wear their freckles on their sleeves (and everywhere else for that matter).
Conan... thank you for carrying the "flame" for us all!
Molly wasn't a classic beauty, but she definitely had that certain "something" and embodied all the best qualities of a bonafide ginger original. Quirky, smart, sarcastic and witty, Molly always got the hot guy in the end, because she was unwilling to compromise.
Thanks for making the 80s tolerable and representing us well Molly!
God Bless him, Ron Howard has done his part for ginges since his early childhood.
Whether portraying the wide-eyed kid Opie Taylor on "The Andy Griffith Show," or the good-natured teen Richie Cunningham on "Happy Days," to directing and producing some of Hollywood's biggest hits, Ron's a plus for us!
Jesus was a cool cat who did a lot of amazing things, but behind every great man, is a great woman, and that woman was Mary Magdalene.
While we don't have any pictures of Mary, it is believed she had red hair, red hair she apparently used to wash Jesus' feet with, thus making her the grandmother of foot fetishists around the world.
Speaking of British leaders who could deliver, Margaret Thatcher is a red of distinction and was a passionate, resolute and strong head of state.
Thatcher delivered this great quote, (which secretly is about gingers): "Where there is discord, may we bring harmony. Where there is error, may we bring truth. Where there is doubt, may we bring faith. And where there is despair, may we bring hope."
Thomas Jefferson, served as our third president, and the primary author of our sacred Declaration of Independence. A tremendous writer who could speak five languages and was erudite on a vast number of subjects, Jefferson was and is one of our greatest leaders.
When he wasn't busy getting busy with slave/mistress Sally Hemmings, he was serving as HBIC of the hot ginge club!
Lindsay Lohan used to be a proud card-carrying member of the hot ginge club, but she was kicked out long ago and has turned her back on her own kind.
Perhaps it was the 2006 "fire-crotch" incident which turned her, but whatever the case, it's been downhill for Lindsay since. Thank goodness she's bleached the beauteous red from her DNA, as we want no association with this traitor!
L. Ron Hubbard, founder of the Church of Scientology is a poor example for us reds.
Hubbard embodies all the stereotypes we've tried hard to dispel as a group. He was insane, egotistical, hard-headed, ill-tempered and pretty much a jerk, and he created a wildly greedy and litigious cult, so yeah, he pretty much sucks.
Gingers agree, LRH blows!
Rupert Grint's portrayal of Ron Weasley in the uber popular Harry Potter films has done more to rehabilitate the reputation of modern ginger men than any other character. Rupert and Prince Harry are making it safe to be male ginger once again.
A round of butterbeer for everyone!
