18 Amazing Celebrities With Green Eyes
Green eyes are the rarest eye color in the world. Fewer than 9% of Americans have green eyes. On a global scale, only 2% of the population has green eyes, which is an amazing statistic. Green eyes are the result of a genetic mutation, hence them being so rare. Along with being few and far between, green eyes are also the most attractive shade of eye color. According to a poll by All About Vision, 20.3% of people surveyed found people with green eyes the hottest. This explains why there are so many celebrities with green eyes.
Being blessed with green eyes is like having an edge over everyone else. This is very handy when it comes to the entertainment world. If you are already attractive and talented, throw in green eyes and you are almost unstoppable. It’s the triple threat! To prove how having green eyes is an added bonus, here is a collection of the hottest and most famous celebrities with green eyes.
1. Mila Jovovich
Model turned actress Milla Jovovich has a mesmerizing set of green eyes. The Ukraine-born celebrity broke out with her role in The Fifth Element before establishing herself as a Hollywood player with her star turn in the adaptation of the video game Resident Evil. She went on to star in six Resident Evil films and continues to be a regular on the big screen.
2. Bruce Willis
Acting great Bruce Willis has hit hard times of late. The Die Hard actor has had to retire from acting due to being diagnosed with aphasia. This is a disorder that impacts language expression and comprehension and is the reason Willis has been slumming it in B-grade films these past few years. While the green-eyed heartthrob might no longer be making films, he leaves behind an incredible filmography and has the respect of all movie fans.
3. Scarlett Johansson
Blessed with incredible looks and natural acting talent, green eyes just top things off for Scarlett Johansson. The American is one of the world’s highest-paid actresses whose films have grossed over $14.3 billion worldwide. Some of her most notable roles include Charlotte in Lost in Translation, Laura in Under the Skin, and Natasha Romanoff/Black Widow in the Marvel movies.
4. Daniel Day-Lewis
Performers don’t get much better than Daniel Day-Lewis. The green-eyed acting legend has won three Academy Awards in the Best Actor category. He won for the films My Left Foot, There Will Be Blood, and Lincoln. While his acting is sparse (21 films across 50 years), when Day-Lewis does make a film, it’s generally a critical success.
5. Audrey Hepburn
The great Audrey Hepburn is one of those rare people whose eye color seems to differ depending on who you speak to. The Hollywood beauty is officially recognized for having brown eyes, but she has often been listed as having blue eyes and green eyes. She may have had a partial heterochromia, which is when one part of the iris is a different color from the rest. Whatever her eye color, Hepburn remains a Hollywood legend.
6. Channing Tatum
There’s a reason why Magic Mike is considered such hot stuff. It’s his green eyes. The stripper turned actor is one of the most popular leading men and is currently dating Zoe Kravitz.
7. Emma Stone
Emma Stone has a very unique look. Not only is she lucky enough to have green eyes, but she also sports red hair. Ok, her real hair color is blonde, but there is no doubting the combination of green eyes and red hair has helped with her success.
8. Benedict Cumberbatch
Similar to Audrey Hepburn, UK actor Benedict Cumberbatch’s eye color changes depending on what light you see him in. They are either green eyes or blue eyes, but whichever you see, there is no doubting Cumberbatch’s alluring on-screen presence. While he first came to the attention of many after his portrayal of Sherlock Holmes, he is now best known for his role as Dr. Strange in the Marvel movies.
9. Olivia Wilde
Olivia Wilde was born with central heterochromia. This means the inner ring of the iris is a different color from the outer ring. In Wilde’s case, she has bluish eyes with a green inner ring. Despite her changing eye color, Wilde has managed to make it in the entertainment world. She made her mark in the medical drama House before going on to have success with the movies Drinking Buddies, Richard Jewell, and Booksmart, which she also directed. She also happens to be dating Harry Styles.

Aishwarya Rai broke into the mainstream after her starring role in Bride and Prejudice. On her eye color, she had this to say in an interview, “It accentuates more blue or more green accordingly, so I’d say the color was grey-green, like the sea.”
16. Clive Owen
Another actor whose eyes seem to change color, Clive Owen was born with green eyes. The English actor has had a varied career, starring in dramas such as Closer and The Song of Names, action hits including Shoot Em’ Up and Killer Elite, and TV period drama The Knick.
