Celebrity Science Experiment

When I was a kid, I did an "experiment" for the Science Fair that had something to do with how long it took for different kinds of popcorn to pop. Not very scientific, eh? So let's do another experiment. It will be just as simple, but the results will be more interesting (I hope), and you won't have burnt popcorn smelling up your apartment. Cool?

The hypothesis: Your favorite celebrities will have your same hair color.

I have favorite celebrities for different reasons--some based on beauty and some on talent. While I do think Eva Mendes is talented, her beauty is what I'm really drawn to.

She looks like perfection whether she's all glammed up or just au natural. And hellllo, have you seen her Calvin Klein ads? To die for.

Ok, so I'm not suggesting that I look anything like Eva Mendes, but yes, we do both have brown hair. Here are more of my favorite celebs:

Reality stars: Kim and Khloe Kardashian
Victoria Secret Model: Miranda Kerr
Gossip Girl character: Blair
Pop star: Miley Cyrus (Ok, Taylor Swift is a close close second, if not a tie for first)
Female Artist: Beyonce
Comedians: Kathy Griffin and Ellen Degeneres
Enviable body: Shakira
Celeb spawn: Suri Cruise and Violet Affleck
90's Supermodel: Helena Christensen
Style: Rihanna
UK artist: Lily Allen
English actress: Kate Beckinsale
Sex and The City character: Miranda
Mother/daughter actresses: Susan Sarandon and Eva Amurri

And for whatever reason, I always find myself favoring the brunette actress in movies. It was Penelope Cruz in Vicky, Christina, Barcelona, Anne Hathaway in Bride Wars, Ginnifer Goodwin in He's Just Not That Into You and America Fererra in Sisterhood of the Traveling Pants.

Even though not everyone on my list is a brunette, the majority definitely is. I even have more redheads than blondes! Interesting. Maybe I'm subconsciously envious of blondes? Or maybe I just can't relate to them as much for some reason? I'm not sure.

My conclusion: True. Why do you think that is? What would your conclusion be?


  1. I would say I do gravitate toward blonde celebrities, but no really sure why?

    I also had a thought about a few celebrities who change hair colors who I really like too... Julia Roberts, Drew Barrymore. Which category do they fall in?

  2. I never consider Julia to be a blonde, even when her hair is lighter. Drew will always be a blonde to me, no matter what her color of the month is! I think those colors fit their personalities, no?

  3. Okay here's my list. I think for the most part I LIKE brunette's but I ENVY blondes :)
    Reality stars: Kourtney and Khloe Kardashian
    Victoria Secret Model: Marissa Miller
    Gossip Girl character: Blair
    Pop star: Taylor Swift
    Female Artist: Britney, bitch (you said artist- not singer hahaha)
    Comedians: Ellen Degeneres
    Enviable body: Blake Lively
    Celeb spawn: Suri Cruise (which is weird because I am not a fan of Tom)
    90's Supermodel: Helena Christensen (agreed!)
    Style: Penelope Cruz (the last outfit I saw her in was a dress with a black cowl neck and a leather jacket- to die for!)
    UK artist: Lily Allen
    English actress: Kate Beckinsale
    Sex and The City character: Charlotte York
    Mother/daughter actresses: Susan Sarandon and Eva Amurri (oooh I love them!)

  4. Blake Lively DOES have a good body. What's up with her rocking her boobs out like a porn stor on Gossip Girl though? I think I can honestly say that I'm not envious of blondes. (Well, maybe Marissa Miller). The Kate Hudson's and Cameron Diaz's of the world just don't do it for me. However, I suppose I should admit that while I love an exotic look, I sometimes get a little jealous of that cute, fresh-faced look too.

  5. I'm pretty sure you should patent this theory because it's SO true. Everyone I like is blond!

  6. Ha, well why do you think that is, twentyfifth??

  7. i think it's because you relate to them on a subconscious level since they "look" like you.

    but yeah, what IS up with blake's boobs. are they real?!?! if so WAY envious. if not, i wish i could afford them.

  8. Blake's boobs have the REAL look, but I don't think they are. I mean, why are we just now noticing them??
