Famous Redheads

Lately, I've been noticing more and more redheads in the public's eye. From the only white Old Navy mannequin to Glee's favorite OCD ginger (by the way, this doesn't make any sense: redheads have been conditioned to deal with grossness [Aw, sick, gross --Cartman]). Here are my favorite redheads as of late. For some reason, several are named 'Emma':

Emma Stone: Ms. Stone only came on my radar Easter Sunday, when I came home to Chicago and finally watched "Easy A". Her cynical, laid back yet awesome strikes a pleasant contrast against those annoying perky blonde girls. Plus, my present boy interest told me he has a crush on her because he "has a thing for redheads." (And he's not creepy; what is wrong with him?)
Emma Pillsbury: "Being a ginger has plagued me my entire life. People say that I smell like copper, and I can get a sunburn indoors at night. And according to recent legend, I have no soul." Enough said.
Old Navy Modelquin (probably named Emma): As previously mentioned, Old Navy clearly targets minorities. At less than 1 percent of the world population, gingers are more minor than blacks, Hispanics, Asians, women, homosexuals and transgenders alike. Well, maybe not transgenders. But still, redheads are clearly discriminated against, yet redism is laughed at. (Have you ever been told you are not temperamental enough for your hair color?) Plus, she (used to?) have a Twitter feed.
Conan: Because recently, a friend told me he reminded her of me. And like most redheads, I love being compared to famous people. Because I am one...right? 
Who is your favorite lovable famous redhead?

    The Ginger Phile has had the unfortunate disposition of being a ginger since birth. She has tried various medications to cure her gingervitis, including therapies such as tantrum-throwing. Her efforts have been to no avail. Instead, she is trying to write it out, via this blog. Unfortunately, she doesn't think it will bear a soul for her. The Ginger Phile is from the exotic land of Wisconsin, where she had daily inner turmoil over whether she was a ginger or a daywalker. So far, three of three votes say daywalker. She begs to differ, as someone recently told her they would want to be with her if they were biking at night because she is so pale.
