17 of the World’s Most Famous Blonde Celebrities
When it comes to standing out in the high-profile world of celebrities, blondes certainly make a splash. From Marilyn Monroe to Blake Lively and everyone in between, blonde celebrities are often front and center. While easily identifiable thanks to the color of their hair, these celebrities are more than just pretty faces with nice hair.
These actors, actresses, musicians, sports stars, and more, are all extremely talented at their chosen profession. The fact they have blonde hair is an added bonus that no doubt helps them get more exposure than their regular hair-colored peers. Even many people born without blonde locks give them a go at some stage in their career, only highlighting how much people revel in this hair color.
Whether your favorite celebrity is a natural blonde or trying out the platinum look for a role, they are sure to get noticed. Here are 17 of the most famous blonde celebrities the world has ever seen.
1. Margot Robbie
Aussie starlet Margot Robbie looks like your typical beach bum from Down Under. The star of Birds of Prey and Once Upon a Time in Hollywood has blonde locks that complement her beautiful facial features. The former Neighbors star has come a long way since starring in the soap opera in the mid-00s and is now a bonafide Hollywood star.
Not only is she an incredible actress, but Robbie is also a producer, having been involved in the production of the film Promising Young Woman and the television series Dollface. At just 32, Robbie has a long career in Hollywood ahead of her.
2. Cameron Diaz
When you hear the words “blonde bombshell,” Cameron Diaz immediately comes to mind. The model turned actress is the epitome of the phrase, with her beauty absolutely stunning. While her blonde hair and blue eyes no doubt helped her land the coveted role of Tina Carlyle in The Mask, Diaz has since proven there is more to her than looks.
Diaz is an accomplished actress whose filmography features a variety of different types of movies, from sports drama Any Given Sunday and comedy There’s Something About Mary to Martin Scorsese’s epic Gangs of New York and action film Knight and Day.
Although she’s been on somewhat of an acting hiatus these past ten years to take care of her kids, Diaz has continued to pursue creative endeavors, releasing two health books and actively helping a variety of charities.
3. Justin Bieber
Discovered on YouTube, Justin Bieber is now one of the top singers in the world. The Canadian has gone through quite the transformation over the years, but one thing that has remained is his blonde hair. He’s gone from teen heartthrob to adolescent nightmare to reformed bad boy over the course of the past decade and a half.
The What Do You Mean and Stay singer has sold over 150 million records, has two Grammy Awards to his name, and holds 33 Guinness World Records. He’s also married to Hailey Bieber, which makes him a-ok in our books.
4. Blake Lively
For someone who has been acting for over two decades, Blake Lively has a fairly thin CV. The American actress who first found fame in the hit series Gossip Girl has been acting sporadically these past four years. This has been partly due to the COVID-19 pandemic and her want to look after her three young children with Ryan Reynolds.
Hopefully, it isn’t long before Blake Lively is back in front of the camera as she is an incredible actress. Some of her most notable performances have come in the romantic fantasy The Age of Adaline and shark survival thriller The Shallows.
5. Jennifer Lawrence
At just 31, Jennifer Lawrence has achieved more than most actors and actresses dream of in their entire careers. Lawrence has been the star of not one, but two franchises (The Hunger Games and X-Men) and is the recipient of an Academy Award for Best Actress for her role in the hit Silver Lining Playbook.
While it’s true she has had some stinkers since hitting the big time (Passengers anyone?), the blonde actress did receive positive reviews for her role in Adam McKay’s Netflix feature Don’t Look Up alongside Leonardo DiCaprio.
6. Brad Pitt
They don’t get much more handsome than Brad Pitt. The leading man has been a presence on our screens for over 30 years since his breakthrough role in Thelma & Lousie. His smoldering good looks are no doubt helped by his blond hair, although it’s a little darker these days.
Pitt’s career is one most actors would be jealous of. Pitt has starred in some of the greatest movies of his generation, including Fight Club, Seven, Moneyball, Once Upon a Time in Hollywood, Inglorious Basterds, and The Assassination of Jesse James by the Coward Robert Ford. As well as acting, Pitt’s production company with Brad Grey and Jennifer Aniston, Plan B Entertainment, is behind such hits as Moonlight, The Departed, and 12 Years a Slave.
Anyone with a profile like Pitt is constantly in the news, with the actor often written about due to his many Hollywood romances. Pitt has been involved with Gwyneth Paltrow, Jennifer Aniston, Angelina Jolie, and Juliette Lewis to name a few.
7. Emma Stone
She might be best known for her firey red hair, but Emma Stone is in fact a blonde. The Easy A and La La Land star has sported the redhead look for most of her career. Talking with Refinery29, Stone explained why she’s all about red hair; “My hair grows out blonde, but my coloring is similar to that of a redhead,” she said. “So… I really like having red hair. I’m a natural blonde, but I really like the red.”
It certainly hasn’t hurt her career, with Stone always in high demand and often offered juicy roles. Some of her best performances have come in movies such as Crazy, Stupid, Love, The Help, and Birdman.
8. Pamela Anderson
No list of iconic blonde celebrities is complete without Pamela Anderson. The Playboy model and Baywatch star is synonymous for her blonde hair and red bathing suit. At one point during the 90s, she was arguably the biggest star on TV, but a series of scandals and poor choices caused Anderson’s career to nosedive.
While she continues to take roles here and there, Anderson spends most of her time involved with different charities and raising her two boys from her marriage to Motley Crue drummer Tommy Lee.
9. Chris Hemsworth
The second Aussie on this list, Chris Hemsworth is another actor who fits the Australian stereotype. The musclebound hunk with blonde hair is perfectly cast as Thor in the Marvel movies, the role that really kick-started his career and sent him straight to the big leagues. Along with playing the God of Thunder, the blonde Hemsworth has shown off his acting skills in movies such as The Cabin in the Woods, Rush, and Extraction.
Hemsworth will next be seen in the sequel to Extraction, while he’s also scored a role in the upcoming fourth Mad Max movie Furiosa.
10. Taylor Swift
Blonde musicians don’t get much more recognizable than Taylor Swift. The country-turned-pop singer’s shade of blonde continues to change over the years, but this hasn’t stopped her assault on the charts. Swift is up there with the best-selling artists of all time, having sold over 200 million records worldwide.
Her nine albums have garnered 11 Grammy Awards, 34 American Music Awards, and an amazing 58 Guinness World Records. Almost everything she touches turns to gold, with Swift continually receiving critical and commercial praise. At just 32 years of age, Swift is only hitting her straps as a songwriter and will surely go down as one of the greats.

11. Scarlett Johansson
American actress Scarlett Johansson is another famous celebrity known for her blonde hairstyle. Often labeled a sex symbol by the media, there is much more to Johansson than her hair color. The highest-grossing box office star of all time is loved by critics and audiences thanks to star turns in movies such as indie flick Lost in Translation with Bill Murray, drama Girl with a Pearl Earring, and divorce drama Marriage Story.
Johansson has also released two albums (she’s no Katy Perry or Britney Spears but still has a decent voice) and strutted her stuff on the Broadway stage. Although she hasn’t been as active these past couple of years, Johansson has several films lined up for the coming years as she looks set to continue her stranglehold on the box office.
12. Ryan Gosling
The normally blonde actor has gone platinum blonde for his next role in the real-life adaptation of the toy Barbie. Whether the film is any good is another question, but Gosling has fully committed to the role of Ken alongside fellow blondie Margot Robbie.
Gosling is another actor with an enviable CV. The notoriously private star has starred in a wide range of movies, such as romance hit The Notebook, Netflix actioner The Gray Man, musical La La Land, and science fiction thriller Blade Runner 2049. A tremendous actor who says as much with his movements as his voice, Gosling is a favorite blonde celebrity of the Next Luxury team.
13. Drew Barrymore
Drew Barrymore is Hollywood royalty. The blonde actress has been in the business for over 40 years and starred in some of the best and biggest movies of all time. Her filmography is packed with huge hits, such as E.T. the Extra-Terrestrial, Scream, Riding in Cars With Boys, Fever Pitch, and the Charlie’s Angels movies.
These days Barrymore is acting less, instead focusing on her talk show The Drew Barrymore Show. A surprise hit during lockdown, the show is full of positivity and Barrymore’s natural charm. The talk show has seen her interview many of her famous friends, including ex-husband Tom Green, actress Amy Adams, rapper 50 Cent, and fellow talk show host Jimmy Fallon.
14. Brigitte Bardot
When you think of blonde icons Brigitte Bardot should be top of your list. The French singer, actress, and model was the sex symbol of the 1950s and 1960s. Incredibly her career in the entertainment world only spanned two decades before she pulled the plug. But in that time the blonde actress starred in 47 movies, took the stage in several musicals, and released more than 60 songs. She fit more into her 20-year career than many do in their entire lives.
Retiring in 1973, Bardot turned to charity work and is a big animal rights activist. The entertainment icon resides in Paris with her husband Bernard d’Ormale and continues to pursue her charity endeavors.
15. Leonardo DiCaprio
While his hair might not be as blond as it once was, Leonardo DiCaprio is still a famous celebrity with blonde hair. He is arguably the Robert De Niro or Al Pacino of the modern generation, with his films always performing well at the box office. While he starred in some questionable fare as a teen (Critters 3 and Total Eclipse to name two), DiCaprio cemented his credentials with the one-two punch of Romeo + Juliet and Titanic in the 90s.
Since then DiCaprio has had his choice of roles, often looking to play different characters in movies exploring all types of themes. Some of his best movies of the past 20 years include Catch Me if You Can, The Departed, Inception, and Once Upon a Time in Hollywood.
16. Amanda Seyfried
Amanda Seyfried is another blonde celebrity who is both an actress and a singer. While best known for her roles in Mean Girls and the TV shows Veronica Mars and Big Love, Seyfried has also been featured singing on several movie soundtracks. She showcases her vocal prowess in the movie musicals Mamma Mia! and Les Misérables.
It’s only recently that Seyfried has been awarded the critical acclaim she deserves. Roles in David Fincher’s biopic Mank and pharmaceutical miniseries The Dropout have seen Seyfried universally praised, with many believing it won’t be long until she is an Academy Award actress.
17. Michelle Williams
Dawson’s Creek gave many young actors and actresses their start, including Micelle Willaims. Her appearance on the show as Jen Lindley opened many doors for Williams, who would land an important role in the drama Brokeback Mountain just two years after Dawson’s Creek ended. On the set is where she met Heath Ledger who she would become romantically involved with and have a child.
Ledger’s unfortunate passing had a great impact on Willaims but this major life event didn’t deter her star from rising. Standout roles in Blue Valentine, Shutter Island, and My Week with Marilyn confirm Williams as a talent with a long and fruitful career ahead of her.
