Despite recent rumors that redheads are going extinct, they're here to stay. According to new research from Germany, they also have more sex than their blonde and brunette counterparts. Who needs blondes and brunettes when we have redheads to help us start a fire? Here are a few who leave us feeling all hot and bothered:

The Veterans: Seasoned redheaded beauties who've paved the way. "Veteran" is in no way a negative term here, it's an accolade. We're paying homage.

Marcia Cross
Age: 46

Notable Work: "Desperate Housewives," "Everwood," "Seinfeld," "Melrose Place," "Knots Landing."

Why she's sexy: Marcia is the quintessential redhead with milky white skin and deep red locks. This statuesque beauty has almost done it all in Hollywood. And whenever she decides to dip her hands into a project, she does it with gusto.

Gillian Anderson
Age: 39

Notable Work: "Last King of Scotland," "Bleak House," "The X-Files" (and, of course, the second "X-Files" film due out on July 25, 2008).

Why she's sexy: After all these years Scully is still hot. It's as if Gillian got frozen in time when "The X-Files" ended. She remains youthful and vibrant.

Julianne Moore

Notable Work: "Law & Order: Criminal Intent," "Last Holiday," "Two Weeks Notice," "Urban Legend," "Mr. Holland's Opus," "Ally McBeal" and "Cybil."

Prince Harry
Age: 23

Notable Work: He was deployed to Afghanistan to fight in December 2007 regardless of the fact that he is a prince.
