Ginger Pro-Philes: Julia Roberts

Ginger Pro-Philes: Julia Roberts

Yesterday I had a Twitter tiff with some ginja hata about Julia Roberts being the reason there are so many leading redheaded ladies today (think Emma Stone, Amy Adams, Isla Fisher). Back in the day, actressland was like modeland (get it!?) ... there could be only one black model (Tyra), and that's why Tyra and Naomi Campbell got in so many catfights.

For realz yo, can you think of any of Julia Roberts contemporaries circa "Pretty Woman" who were redheaded? Who even were her leading lady competitors? Who was Julia's Naomi Campbell? Meg Ryan?

Anyway, said Twitter follower claimed Rita Hayworth led the way for Hollywood redheads. Although I am expressing animosity toward her at present for no reason except that I'm a typical temperamental redhead, she has a valid point. After all Julia Roberts is a daywalker; I mean her eyes aren't even blue or green! They're brown! Or hazel or some shit no true ginger knows anything about.

Plus, I can't even find a picture on Google Images of her hair looking anything but brown or blonde: never red. Rita Hayworth, when not in black and white, is clearly a true red. (Speaking of which, did redheads go away when color TV was invented? I'm thinking I <3 Lucy being replaced by Three's Company: a ditzy blonde and "ugly" brunette, of gingers to be seen....)

Verdict: Julia Roberts is a DAYWALKER! She couldn't have set the bar for today's leading gingies.

What do you think?

  • Hello - this question isn't related to your topic:( but i want your help:) i came across this site yesterday and being and 18 year old ginger guy it had an effect.. i find that generally having red hair helps as i find it easy getting girls and getting noticed when going out. however, i do have insecurities that come and go about it. spesifically i hate it when i read on the web that 'gingers don't have souls'. so basically i would really like to know if this is all a well intened joke or if it is almost like a hate site? because i attack myself about these kinds of things often. so yea just wanted to know your oppinion on the sites intention and the whole soul thing. thanks:)

    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.
