These 10 blond male actors cover many different ages and movie genres, but they are all united by their hair color. Their golden locks set them apart in the movie world. They may have dyed their hair darker for a particular role, but for the most part, these 10 actors stay true to their blond roots.
- Brad Pitt This quintessential blond actor has made women drool since the early 1990s. For the most part, he’s stayed true to his blond roots, only venturing forth with darker hair for a few select roles like "Interview with the Vampire" and "The Assassination of Jesse James." His sizzling blond roles include "Legends of the Fall," "Mr. and Mrs. Smith," and "Meet Joe Black."
- Alexander Skarsgard This blond actor plays the vampire hunk Eric Northman in HBO’s TV series "True Blood." His blond hair provides evidence of his Nordic roots; Skarsgard is Swedish and often speaks the language during the show since it’s been incorporated into his back story.
- Neil Patrick Harris This blond male actor has charmed viewers since he was a young, precocious boy in the popular TV show, "Doogie Howser, M.D." Now, when he’s not hosting award shows, he is busy playing the immature, but lovable Barney Stinson in "How I Met Your Mother."
