The Gingerevoloution Part II the Boys

So way back at the beginning of my blogging, I posted about 2010 being the year of the hot female ginger. Something I didn't think that many of you would agree with but behold! I was inundated with over one comments, not only concurring but crying out for a Hot Ginger Boy Blog. A mere 2 years later I have decided to comply and my research noticed that male red heads have become something of a phenomena.

Seems there are a fair few kinky types out there and the following hot headed ones are getting you all hot under the collar.

Prince H.
Who cares if his hairline is the thing that seemingly suggests his lineage may not be as royal as his brothers? This cheeky chappie has all the trappings of a prince with only a smidge of the responsibility. I'd party with this one.

Eric Stoltz
Ahhh the original. Making movies when other auburn locked males were in their bedrooms playing with imaginary friends. He even managed to look tasty in Pulp Fiction (OK he was a drug dealer and his witticisms were wholly due to the penmanship of Quintin Tarantino but still).

Kevin Mckidd
In Greys Anatomy he's a Surgeon, he was in the Army and he has a damn toned tushie - Plus I've just found out he was the non druggy one in Trainspotting! Who would've thunk it?!

Ed Sheeran
Not the prettiest of his clan, but the boy has mad song writing skills. Brit winner, down to earth home grown talent and if you follow his tweets you'll know he's in the middle of some sort of monster tour. Not bad for a choir boy in a Fenchurch Tee.

Damien Lewis
Currently being a tad scary on Chanel 4's 'Homeland' but he has a fan in the US of A Prez. Obama apparently invited him to dine at the Whitehouse but I suspect this is at the urging of Mrs Prez, you know she's a ginger lover too!

Seth Green
My personal favourite being a Buffy fan. His character nabbed all the good lines and even though he was dealt the red head and shorty card (he's also only 5"4) he still manages to be sexy, go figure!

So how come the rash of properly tasty carrot toppers then? I think I may have been right all along (as I usually do) and see it as an evolutionary move on the part of the Ginger Guy not be become extinct. Or possibly they've noticed how their female counterparts have upped their game and feel obliged to do the same, whatever the reason it seems the sex appeal fairy has started bonking her wand on the red heads around us and Thee Middle Sister applauds her efforts.

The Shy Starlet

Do you remember the genuinely shy girl at school that couldn’t speak to anyone. When she did her face would be a shade of scarlet not seen since A's were sewn onto adulterer's clothing and whatever sound was produced from her mouth was so quiet it felt like a light breeze tickled your hearing?

I do, for I while there I was one - (I'll wait a second for those that know me to raise an eyebrow or two...). It was a wretched feeling so the alarming rate at which awkward looking, coy sounding movie actresses are coming out of the woodwork doesn't sit well with Thee Middle Sister. All these actresses giving monosyllabic answers to red carpet interviews leaves a sickly sweet flavour (akin to what it would taste like if a care bear threw up) in my mouth. It just doesn't feel like authentic characters are coming through.

Was it Kristen Stewart that started it all? Had her stumbling, introverted character not been so successful at reeling in the paps and TV presenter's curiosity, would we see so many now?

Take this Mara woman, Ooh I’m shy I’m demure, if you fart on me I’ll fall over. Really Rooney? then how did you get through an audition for Dragon Tattoo then? Let alone filming some rather graphic scenes! Did your sense of timidity disappear when Daniel Craig popped up, cos a truly shy girl would have run a mile from a movie star.

We need a new word in our vocabulary as Kim K describes herself as painfully shy as well. Genuinely shy people aren’t the type to bolt when being asked to dance in front of people at a Prince concert, but party like a rock star when posing naked for Playboy covered in only pearls and diamonds.

(Poor dear looks terrified huh?).

And this is 2012 so while I love Mad Men I don't want to live it! When it comes to icons and heros for future ladies in the world, one woman that does embody all that fame and fortune could produce is busy proving it is possible to be a millionaire and still have an actual personality.

Long live Adele.
