"We'll beat him like a red-headed step-child!" — Gutterboy, The Wraith (1986)
Despite the fact that many of the most beautiful and talented actors and actresses are redheads — Jessica Chastain currently tops the list of your favorite movie redheads — Hollywood seems determined to paint "gingers" as the bad guys all too frequently. Michael Kittrell, star of our outrageous new reality series, Hollywood Hillbillies, launched his career by railing against the portrayal of gingers on South Park, and ginger discrimination is a very real problem in the U.K., where people have been bullied and even beaten just for having red hair. The problem obviously goes back well before the advent of motion pictures, but Hollywood hasn't been doing redheads any favors, either. If there's a scheming seductress or creepy kid in a movie, chances are they're a redhead.The highfalutin better watch out!
