We’ve already established that celebrities with green eyes are rare, but what about those with blue eyes? Well, it seems not as common as you probably think. According to Healthlinesomewhere between eight and ten percent of people worldwide have blue eyes. While eye color isn’t that big of a deal, it does offer a point of difference. You certainly notice someone who has a steely blue-eyed gaze. It is also effective when it comes to celebrities with blue eyes.
Not only does having a pair of blue eyes set them apart from the rest, but they are the most desirable. As reported by Best Lifea study in the UK by Lenstore found men with blue eyes to be the most attractive. This explains why so many successful male actors have blue eyes. This also extends to women, whose icy blue gaze can transfix audiences.
If you’re still not sold on blue eyes, here is a collection of amazing and talented celebrities to change your mind. These celebrities are not only super talented but also have blue eyes.
1. Megan Fox
Many would think someone as attractive as Megan Fox would have it easy, but that isn’t the case. While her deep blue eyes and lush features have made her famous in the entertainment world, things were much tougher for teenage Fox. She was relentlessly bullied a school and struggled with her studies. She escaped to Los Angeles at 17 to pursue a career in acting. After six years of toil, she finally broke through after being cast in the first Transformers movie. This soon led to regular work for the gorgeous Fox, who can be seen in films such as Jennifer’s Body, Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtlesand the TV series New Girl.
While an experienced actress, she is currently making news on the regular due to her relationship with rapper turned rocker Machine Gun Kelly. The two make an interesting couple and are not afraid to talk about the things they get up to, such as drinking each other’s blood. Whatever works right?
2. Chris Evans
What a specimen! Chris Evans is up there with the most handsome men in Hollywood. The blue-eyed, brown-haired actor is mesmerizing on the big screen and a true leading man. The early part of his career is full of interesting choices, appearing in films like teen comedy Not Another Teen Movie and intense drama London. Then things exploded when he was cast as Johnny Storm (the Human Torch) in two Fantastic Four films. Unfortunately, both are horrible, but this didn’t put a damper on his career. Evans popped up in Danny Boyle’s sci-fi thriller Sunshine and Edgar Wright’s impressive Scott Pilgrim vs. the World before really breaking through as Captain America in the film of the same name in 2011.
Since then Evans has been ever-present on the big screen. As well as appearing in a further two more Captain America films and all the Avenger spin-offs, he’s played a major role in movies such as Snowpiercer, Giftedand Knives Out.
3. Olivia Wilde
Born with central heterochromia, Olivia Wilde has some dazzling eyes. The condition means the inner ring of the iris is different from that of the outer ring. So her inner ring is green but the outer is blue. This causes her eyes to often look like they are changing color. So in reality she can make the list of both celebrities with blue eyes and those with green.
Eye color aside, Wilde is a successful actor and director who is becoming a major player in Hollywood. After getting her start in the medical drama HouseWilde appeared in films such as Tron: Legacy, Cowboys & Aliensand The Lazarus Effect. Switching to acting, her debut, Booksmartwas a critical success, winning multiple awards. A known feminist and activist, Wilde is currently dating singer Harry Styles, who happens to have green eyes. Just in case you were wondering.

Possessed with striking blue eyes, the great entertainer Frank Sinatra was given the nickname Ol’ Blue Eyes. Over a 60-year career, the Chairman of the Board released over 55 albums, starred in over 65 films, and was part of one of the most successful groups of all time, The Rat Pack. The core group consisted of Sinatra, Dean Martin, Sammy Davis Jr., and Joey Bishop, with the quartet performing in Las Vegas together for decades.
As well as being a top star, Sinatra was a known lady’s man. He was married four times and was said to have had dalliances with the likes of Marilyn Monroe, Lana Turner, and Joi Lansing. He was also rumored to have ties to the mob but always denied this, despite the FBI keeping a file on his reported mafia associations for decades.
5. Kirsten Dunst
Kirsten Dunst was pushed into acting at an early age. The blue-eyed beauty was a child fashion model at the age of three and appeared in a couple of movies in the early 90s before blowing up with her role as the child vampire Claudia in Anne Rice’s Interview With a Vampire. Bigger roles followed in Little Women and kids films Jumanji and Small Soldiers. It was her part in the heartbreaking drama The Virgin Suicides that really established her as a talent.
Since then Dunst and her blue eyes have gone on to appear in dozens of incredible movies. Bring It On, Eternal Sunshine of the Spotless Mind, The Power of the Dogand the original Spider-Man trilogy. She’s also exceptional in the second season of Fargo.
6. Benedict Cumberbatch
Similar to Olivia Wilde, English actor Benedict Cumberbatch has a form of heterochromia. His is known as sectoral or partial heterochromia. So depending on the light, Cumberbatch can appear to have blue or green eyes. Despite this, we think he deserves a spot on this list as his piercing blue eyes really stand out on camera.

Some of his most notable movies include Star Trek Into Darkness, The Power of the Dog, The Hobbit trilogy, and 12 Years a Slave.

The icon that was David Bowie was always believed to have two very distinct different colored eyes. One was a cool ice blue and the other a softer brown. This gave him somewhat of an alien appearance that helped bring life to his Ziggy Stardust character. But did you know Bowie didn’t actually have two different colored eyes?
While many believed it was caused by central heterochromia, it was actually due to anisocoria. This is a condition where one of the pupils in your eye is larger than the other. But Bowie wasn’t born with this. His different colored eyes came about after he was punched in the face by his mate George Underwood. He and Bowie were chasing the same girl, and when Bowie got her, Underwood took his anger out by punching him square in the eye. The punch was much harder than expected and Bowie ended up having to be treated in hospital. It was thought he might lose vision in that eye, but the end result was just a dilated pupil.
Despite the mishap, having two different colored eyes helped enhance Bowie’s mysterious persona. As RaidoX reported, Underwood recalled, “Funnily enough he did say I did him a favor, later on. I’m not exactly proud of it, but no one knew that was going to happen.” Another plus; Underwood and Bowie remained firm friends right up until the Thin White Duke’s tragic passing from cancer in 2016.
9. Paris Hilton
Not everyone on this list has natural blue eyes. Hotel heiress Paris Hilton actually has brown eyes but wears blue colored contacts. Why? She’s always been obsessed with having blonde hair and blue eyes, the typical Hollywood look. Hilton has been wearing blue contacts since she was 16, which is a long time to maintain this image, considering she is now 41.
Hilton is one of the first influencers who managed to make a career out of being attractive. Having a super-rich daddy allowed her to do as she pleased, with Hilton having a go at modeling, singing, and acting. She is best known for her reality TV shoes with fellow rich kid Nicole Ritchie. The release of her sex tape, 1 Night in Parishelped push her to superstardom and caused quite a frenzy in the media.
Whatever your thoughts on Hilton, there is no denying she is a savvy businesswoman who has used her celebrity to establish herself as a brand. Without her, we wouldn’t have Kim Khardasian or any of the other Khardasian clan. Actually, maybe that’s not a good thing…
10. Michael Early
The first thing you notice about Michael Early is his striking blue eyes. The American actor might not be as a big name as some on this list, but he has solid filmography. Getting his start cameoing in several popular TV shows, Early’s first notable role was in Barbershop. This led to parts in 2 Fast 2 Furious, Never Die Alone, Takersand an underrated remake of Jacob’s Ladder.
While his movie career is great, Early has done his best work on the small screen. He’s been a main character in a number of successful series, including Almost Human, The Followingand The Woman in the House. He’s also a re-occurring character on the reboot of The Fresh Prince of Bel-Airnow known as just Bel-Air.
11. Nicole Kidman
Australian actress Nicole Kidman has done it all during her nearly four-decade career. The combination of red hair and blue eyes gives her a unique look that has helped her become one of the biggest movie stars in the world. Some of her movie highlights include Days of Thunder, Eyes Wide Shut, The Hours, red Milland Being the Ricardos. As well as film, Kidman has made the jump to the small screen and has done some of her best work this past decade. Big Little Lies, Top of the Lake: China Girland Nine Perfect Strangers are all worth watching, showcasing Kidman’s wonderful talents.
