Top 12 Blonde Actresses Working Today

Style and appearances are very often changed in Hollywood. Whether it’s due to the demands of their upcoming roles or simply fashion related reasons. In fact, appearances are so often changed that half of the time we aren’t even aware of how they look naturally.

In this list we will be looking at the best blondes working in Hollywood today. Let me set down a few ground rules before we get into the list. The Actress has to be naturally Blonde. Yes that’s all that is.

Stars including Charlize Theron, Scarlett Johansson, Reese Witherspoon are all famous for their blonde hair, but have been left out because they are not ‘naturally blonde’. Expect surprises in the list. The list is in no particular order:

1. Amy Adams

3. Cate Blanchett

Cate Blanchett is one of those actresses who get so deep into their part that you hardly even notice the color of their hair. Like every other actress, she has experimented with the color of her hair, but she is a natural blonde.

Cate Blanchett is easily one of the greatest actresses in cinema history and easily the finest of her generation. Like Hepburn and Jane Fonda before her, and alongside the greatest of all time Meryl Streep, Blanchett brings a ferocious intelligence to each role, one that you can see her in her eyes. She gives herself completely over to each part she plays. With honesty and conviction, she makes the role her own, and there is no visible “acting”…she becomes the character.
