As I’ve already done lists of My Top Ten Color Movies & My Top Ten Color Songs, I figured it was time to also do a list of My Top Ten Celebrities With Colors In Their Names as well. 🙂
I think this list is pretty self-explanatory. I enlisted the hubby’s help & he started giving me lots of names which are colors in other languages. Too complicated! I’m sticking to English (sorry, Mel Blanc). Also, I decided to stick with real people instead of fictional characters as that also got too complicated. So here’s a quick shoutout to two characters I love: Ellis Boyd “Red” Redding from The Shawshank Redemption & Charlie Brown from Peanuts.
Okay – let’s do this! Here are My Top Ten Celebrities With Colors In Their Names (along with my favorite thing they’ve starred in, sung or written):
10. Sienna Miller
My Favorite: Stardust
9. Shel Silverstein
My Favorite: The Giving Tree
8. Robert Redford
My Favorite: Butch Cassidy And The Sundance Kid
7. Eve Plumb
My Favorite: The Brady Bunch
6. Jeff Goldblum
My Favorite: The Fly
5. James Brown, Ian Brown & Jackson Browne
My Favorites: The Boss, I Wanna Be Adored & Somebody’s Baby
4. Jack & Meg White
My Favorite: Icky Thump & Hotel Yorba
3. Scarlett Johansson
My Favorite: The Prestige
2. Jack Black
My Favorite: Tenacious D & School Of Rock

Sorry – I had such a huge list to work off of plus someone always comes along to yell at me for the one thing I missed off of a list. But I’ll still have definitely missed some so let me know of any other Color Names you can think of! 🙂
What a great post! So glad you had Betty White in there, she’s a legend. I love her in The Golden Girls but I also loved her in The Proposal, she was brilliant 🙂
Thank you! 🙂 I love Betty White. The Golden Girls was the best! Not seen The Proposal, though. Guess I should! : )
Oh The Proposal is brilliant! 🙂
Betty White rocks!!! Great list as always Mutant!
Thank you! Betty White is the BEST. : )
Great post! Scarlett Johansson is my favorite on your main list.
Thank you! I nearly forgot her… Was looking up colors at IMDB & started with all the standard ones. Like red. Almost forgot scarlett! : )
You really have a knack for inventive lists.
Thank you, Vinnie! I suppose I was kind of cheating since I did similar ones twice before. ; )
I love Betty White sooo much, but Gene Kelly would be at the top of my list.
Me too! Betty White is the best. : ) Hmm… I wouldn’t have thought of Gene Kelly. Like kelly green? Makes me think of Ginger Rogers, though. Ginger would have worked! That’s a color I didn’t think of. : )
Yes, that’s it exactly! Kelly green. Ginger Rogers is a great choice, too.
I have to add blues singer Pink Anderson. After all, his name is one half of the basis for Pink Floyd. For the record the other half was blues singer Floyd Council.
Interesting. I didn’t know that! About either the Pink part or the Floyd part. I don’t really know much when it comes to the blues. : ) (But I did like Pink Floyd in my early 20s!)
Yep, Betty White is the boss… but Jack Black?! Nooooooo. And Jack WHITE is awesome, by far.
Hehe. I knew you’d not be happy with the Jack Black choice! But Betty White makes up for it, right?? ; ) Glad you at least like Jack White! : )
Great list. My list would include two musicians James Brown & Jack White (but not Meg) the three hotties Scarlett, Sienna & Miss Betty White. A couple of my favorite “blue” comedians Sarah Silverman & Redd Foxx. The great Joel Grey (father of Jennifer, Star of Cabaret) And two cartoon characters Olive Oil & Pinky from Pinky & The Brain.
Betty White is definitely hot! ; ) I do like Sarah Silverman. Forgot to include Redd Foxx. Oh – I did add Jennifer Grey but don’t know her father. I do like the cartoon characters! Kept with real life people instead of characters to keep things simple. ; )
Thank you! Was fun putting this together. : ) I need to catch up on your blog! Been away so I’ve not been on any of the blogs. Noticed a review for the book The DUFF, I think?? I’ll check that out in a while – I really liked the movie. : )
When I was doing work experience in New York, I spent a day in a TV studio (not a glamorous, interesting TV studio), and when we walked into the control room the two tech guys in there were like, “Jack Black!” And I said something dumb and innocuous like, “Sadly not, I’m afraid,” and they were like, “English Jack Black!” And they called me ‘English Jack Black’ for the rest of the day.
That’s my Jack Black story. I might start trotting it out every time he comes up.
Haha! I love this story!!! And now I know that you look like Jack Black! With an English accent… ; )
Thanks, Abbi! Kind of a cheat as I did two similar lists previously but it was fun to put together. : )
Great list! Betty White is indeed the best. 🙂
Thank you! Yes she IS! I’ve loved her since The Golden Girls. : )

You always come up with such original ideas. Great list!
Thanks, Alex! Think I just wanted a list that Betty White would top! Lol : )
HAHA, this is a funny list. The entire idea is totally amusing. I love it. I take exception to one name in the honorable mentions. Almond isn’t a color, it is a food. What color would it be? The shell, the skin, the meat inside once you scrape off the skin? Being a needle craft person and used to describing fiber and fabric colors, I use color names a lot and wouldn’t use almond as a color descriptor.
Ron White (comedian), Dobie Gray (singer of Drift Away), Clint Black, James Brown, AL Green–Don’t remember if some were used but I know some were missed.
Hmm. Did I not add Al Green at least? Think I may have mentioned him at the end as I like his music. Think I put James Brown in the top ten, though. 🙂 Must be so many I’ve missed! Tried to at least mention a bunch at the end too but I could probably do with updating the list with current people as the list is quite old now. Glad people are still finding it! 🙂
