Top 10 redheads of all time

Everyone does Top 10 lists, so we are going to be different and do a Top 8. This list is the Top 8 redheads of all time. Actually, not all time, but recent history. I am sure that there are many redheads from way back, but I am not old enough to remember them. We value your opinions and would like to hear your thoughts about who else should be on this list and who shouldn't. Please leave a comment at the end if you want to share your thoughts.

Let's see what Wikipedia says:

Red hair occurs on approximately 1–2% of the human population. It occurs more frequently (2–6%) in people of northern or western European ancestry, and less frequently in other populations. Red hair appears in people with two copies of a recessive gene on chromosome 16 which causes a mutation in the MC1R protein.
Red hair varies from a deep burgundy through burnt orange to bright copper. It is characterized by high levels of the reddish pigment pheomelanin and relatively low levels of the dark pigment eumelanin. The term redhead (originally redd hede) has been in use since at least 1510. It is associated with fair skin color, lighter eye colors (gray, blue, green, and hazel), freckles, and sensitivity to ultraviolet light.
Cultural reactions have varied from ridicule to admiration; many common stereotypes exist regarding redheads and they are often portrayed as fiery-tempered.

8. Lindsay Lohan. LiLo's hotness factor is diminishing since she had issues with alcohol and alleged shoplifting. She peaked around the time that she starred in the movie Mean Girls.

7. Molly Ringwald. Molly starring in John Hughes' movie, The Breakfast Club, was when I first realized that redheads are hot. Molly in the ABC series Secret Life of the American Teenager was when I noticed that redheads don't necessarily stay hot.

6. Amy Adams. Amy is one of those redheads who looks hot in some pictures and not in others. Contrast and compare her in The Fighter and then Leap Year.

5. Alyson Hannigan. She played Buffy's sidekick long before she starred in How I Met Your Mother. There is something cute about those quirky vampire slaying, mother meeting reds.

4. Kirsten Dunst. Another hot/not redhead. The only reason she rates as high as #4 is the scene in Spiderman, wearing a wet shirt leading up to the upside down spiderkiss.

3. Emma Stone. Emma is one of those actresses who is pretty but you don't know why. I saw her in a number of movies before I actually noticed how cute she actually was.

2. Julianne Moore. Definately hot, even for an older woman (51). I can't think of any movies that she was in except for Evolution with David Duchovny. She was hot and funny in that movie.

1. Isla Fisher. Pronounced Eye-ler, she started life as a soap actress in Australia then got a few small parts in big movies and made it big when she co-starred in Wedding Crashers with the tall, weird guy and the messed up nose guy. Although her hotness level remains high, even after 2 children, I am starting to doubt her sanity after getting engaged to and eventually marrying Sacha Borat Cohen.

You do know that many of those actresses are not real redheads, don't you?
