People who are attractive because the media says they're attractive, not because they're actually attractive
Justin Timberlake. Next...
The guy who played the fat cop on NYPD Blue
Jennifer Aniston owns this.
Helen Mirren. Sorry Helen but it's over.
Kristen Stewart and Robert Pattinson own this thread.
Goggle-eyed Emma Stone is their VP of marketing.
Helen Mirren is the queen of this thread. She looks like a Russian fishwife.
Ahem. Do I get a bucket of oats for winning this thread?
Robert Pattinson (looks like a muppet)
Kristen Stewart has the kind of meth face that belongs behind the counter at Walmart
Blake Lively (good body, horrible face)
All male redheads. "Gingers," my ass. They're freaks.
George Lopez, Dan Rather.
Channing Tatum is the true owner of this thread
Definitely SJP owns this thread and Kristin and Robert have minority stakes in it as well.
Jamie Lee Curtis was never good looking, not even when young.
Ed Asner, Morgan Freeman.
As much as I love her, I have to agree with Michelle Obama. Great lady, more 'handsome' than attractive.
I never understood the fuss about Ryan Reynolds.
Fucking Gywneth Paltrow. With that overbite and unchanging straight blonde hair she looks like a Simpsons character come to life.
SJP is far from owning this thread. She used to be attractive. Now that she's not, no one says she is anymore.
R19 me either. His lips are the same color as his face. No distinction at all. Either that or they're chronically chapped.
You need to cite where the media "says they're attractive."
Stewart and Pattison for example, are photographed all the time and get tons of exposure due to Twilight. But, does that mean the media has explicitly said they're attractive?
When was Timberlake ever deemed attractive by the media?
Babe Paley and Gloria Guinness
Wow I agree with every post so far lol. carry on.
Another #1 vote for Channing Tatum.
Whoever said Louise Lasser is delightfully zany. I love her, by the way. Love.
R1 I don't think anyone has said that James Gandolfini and Dennis Franz are attractive.
I agree with R22 Leo is not attractive. He's a great actor but not good looking.
SJP has a comic personality at least. Kristen Stewart is a big blank and average looking.
Every time I see her, I just think: 'Who plucked that cross-eyed roadrunner?'
I don't think it was ever explicitly stated that SJP was attractive, either. She was considered "stylish," but that's different. One doesn't have to be beautiful to wear trendy clothes.
Jake Gylleenhaal whatever
Ms. Jeremy Renner
100% Ryan Reynolds
SJP was attractive 20 years ago. See LA Story for example.
Jeremy Renner is very unattractive.
Jeremy Renner looks like one of the destitute turnip farmers whose heart Vlad the Impaler would have eaten.
Jeremy Renner's Beard
I third Bradley Cooper. Nice eyes though.
Jeremy Renber is beautiful.
Shut the fuck up.
Channing Tatum. People Magazine cover? Don't know who is representing him, but they are worth the pound of flesh they are getting in payment.
Oh, and that Shia Labeouf thingie... that's done now right?
Channing Tatum is people's sexiest man because he had three hit movies out this year. It's a popularity contest.
I think SJP would be more attractive if she put a little weight on.
The Twilight actors are not good looking. Pattison looks like he doesn't bathe, Lautner looks like he got bashed in the face with a frying pan, and Stewart looks like she's the mildly retarded girl in the back row of your seventh grade math class.
Jeremy Renner is revolting. Other than a few forced labor cast members of Freaks I can't think of anyone that ugly ever appearing in a major film.
I don't think Brad Pitt is attractive any longer (although sometimes he looks better than others), but he'll keep being promoted as such till he drops dead.
You're a prince, R10.
Ryan Reynolds owns this thread. He has the goofiest face. Not handsome at all.
I'm with R53. Plus, Reynolds is cross eyed.
R2 I love you more than god.
I'll have to add Kristen Stewart,Jessica Biel, Megan Fox, That ugly Blonde girl from gossip girl not Taylor Momsem the other one that is forgettable Blake something.
Kim Kardashian is average looking nothing stellar in the looks department.
Both Mirren and Jamie Lee Curtis are attractive.
Channing Tatum looks like he has Down's Syndrome
OP, I think you should keep in mind that some people are honestly considered very attractive by some people and quite ordinary, if not downright unattractive, by others.
That said, I think Sarah Jessica Parker is thought of as extremely unattractive by a huge percentage of the public, which is ironic in view of her role on SEX AND THE CITY. But hey, do you suppose that's why she was cast -- on the theory that more women could "relate" to a borderline ugly woman than a drop-dead gorgeous one in that role?
Jessica Biel. When she smiles her upper lip goes flat and she has that sharp as a knife nose.
Justin Timberlake and Jeremy Renner remind me of redneck guys I used to fuck or get to suck me off. Gotta love the repressed, small town southerners.
Jeremy Renner is beautiful, I repeat.
By the way, different thread, but: How amazingly beautiful is Colin Farrell?
Julia Roberts. Hideous!
Renner is truly repulsive-looking, but he does have a surprisingly soulful voice.
Jeremy Renner is capable of immense tenderness.
I would like to add Ben Affleck to the list. Slaw-jawed blandness does not equal attractiveness.
Aniston - she's always described as 'stunning' but she is homely, genuinely homely. I've never understood her appeal.
I agree about Gerard Butler. Nice body in the '300' days, but now looks a mess.
Channing Tatum was beautiful in that Mountain Dew Commercial back in the early 2000's, but he is not aging well and tends to bloat easily when he's not training for a role. His Alabama/Florida Panhandle redneck roots really shine through when he's not all dolled up for Hollywood crap. If he wasn't a model and actor, he'd be a 250-lb truck driver with 3 kids and a shrill harpy freeper frau in Wetumpka, Alabama and sucking black dick in random motels.
I always thought Jessica Alba was overrated in the looks department. She also looks boring and lacking much upstairs too.
SJP was pretty cute in L.A. story, but went downhill quickly after that.
Jeremy Renner is perfect and beautiful. Admit it.
Pretty much any celebrity under 30.
Basically, every celebrity. I know so many people who resemble "hot" celebrities and never get a second look.
R76 - I think Anne is beautiful.
Justin Timberlake is HOT. If you think otherwise, the word JEALOUS is for you
no one cares what you think r79
Thanks for playing, fangurl at R80.
Chloe Sevigny owns this thread.
Is that dude on Burn Notice considered attractive by the media because he's ugly.
I find Chloe attractive. Or at the very least, I don't find her unattractive.
Channing Tatum - right now we're being programmed to believe he's the sexiest man alive.
[quote]Stewart and Pattison for example, are photographed all the time and get tons of exposure due to Twilight. But, does that mean the media has explicitly said they're attractive?
The media has told us again and again that Pattinson is a heartthrob, thereby he's been deemed sexy, beautiful, etc. Never mind that his face looks like it's been beat in with a shovel. Stewart also, as Twilight has become more successful, has gone from plain and uninteresting to a misunderstood, 'edgy' beauty.
Jeremy Renner has a pug nose.
Robert Pattison and his pac man mouth
Daniel Craig has a weird, tiny, pursed mouth. Yuck. Next...
R90 but he has nice eyes and a great bod. That makes up for any oral flaw.
Michelle Obama was never considered attractive by the media.
Brad Pitt is an average overrated white boy.
George Clooney--greatly overrated
Anderson Cooper. He looks weird.
The Anti Silver Fox
sofia vergara. She sorta looks like a tranny from Miami.
R96, she is a tranny from Miami.
Anderson Cooper's head is an odd geometrical shape.
The question is a catch 22.
Attraction is completely subjective.
If you are going to recognize that someone is attractive (the first requirement for OP's question) then you can't simultaneously recognize that the person's attraction exists only because someone else - another person or the media - says they are attractive (the second requirement). These two requirements are mutually exclusive. For if only someone else says or thinks they are attractive, then you won't find them so.
But you knew that.
In other words, Sarah Jessica Parker can't be a logical answer to this question, because anyone holding her to be attractive would insist that she is irrespective of a posited media notion of her attractiveness. And anyone holding her to be unattractive irrespective of a posited media notion of her attractiveness would still hold her to be unattractive.
In order for you to believe someone is attractive only because the media is telling you he or she is attractive is to admit that you have no control over whom you find attractive. Now that may have truth in it, but it goes well beyond the media, it goes to socialization in general. Moreover, it recognizes that whom we find attractive is a social construct. As it is a social construct then "the media" as well as the individual are subject to it. Which doesn't mean everyone and "the media" have to reach the same conclusions. No more than it means that everyone has to reach the same conclusion.
Add Paula Broadwell to the list.
Coop has the most beautiful eyes. So what if his head is kind of elongated. You cannot say tht man is unattractive.
Tardigrades may have butterface but they're HAWT, if you're into bears.
Never saw the attraction. He had googly eyes with dark circles under them.
The media's fascination with Farrah Fawcett's looks in the 70's always baffled me. There was nothing special about her.Jaclyn Smith was far more attractive and prettier.
[quote]Coop has the most beautiful eyes. So what if his head is kind of elongated. You cannot say tht man is unattractive.
Actually, I can. I have never found him attractive. Not necessarily ugly, just not particularly attractive.
Jessica Chastain (this chic looks scabby)
Both the Wilson boys, Owen and his brother.
Paula Abdul in the late 80s and early 1990s.
Nearly every single one of the women are considered "attractive" by the media because they are skinny.
It has nothing to do with their faces. It's all about how fat they are.
If a woman has a beautiful face and is even slightly overweight, the media will fixate on that.
Pattinson, Lautner, Tatum. The latter two have hot bodies but fug faces. If you only have 50% of the equation, you're not attractive.
, buzzkill man.
Cooper Anderson has described himself as an "amoeba like creature". I tend to agree. At least he's self-depricating.
Oh, yes. Angelia Jolie, George Clooney and Brad Pitt are just sooooo unattractive that they need the media to lie about their looks.
ROTFLMAO!!!!!! I guess I've been hyp-NO-tized.
Babe and Gloria were extremely attractive women with facial bone structure to die for. But most of those listed I'd agree with.
Jennifer Aniston, George Clooney (he looks good but nowhere near as good as what he is made out to look) Julia Roberts, Cameron Diaz, Emma Stone. Marion Cottillard.
Johnny Depp owns this thread. Any article online about him is laden with comments from women saying how perfect and gorgeous he is. He is revolting and needs a good scrub.
I don't find Depp attractive in his goofy grooming and get ups.
As a younger man he was pure beauty.
Just a few years ago the Dillenger movie showed what a stunner he still can be. His Vanity Fair cover smoked
Angelina Jolie owns this thread
R97, What do you mean by your dis that Sofia is a "tranny from Miami?"
Almost all of them. I can't think of many movie stars who are properly beautiful now.
This thread should be renamed "Revenge of the Ugly People."
Kate "cornbeef" (canned) Moss
Agree with Depp. Looks like an inbred with cleft palate.
Gisele Bundchen is a great example. I agree with Farah Fawcett too. I was actually wondering about that as a kid. What am I missing? I had no invested negative emotion, she just wasn't very good looking as far as I could or can see.
Scar Jo is a ridiculous answer. I can understand not liking her as a movie star, but it's obvious that that girl would have all the straight men and none too few lesbians all over her in any setting, decade or even century. Truly timeless hotness.
LOL R125, too right.
Jennifer Aniston is not ugly she's just very blandly normal looking and this is with a stylist and tons of plastic surgery-she's handsome and well put together but a great beauty she is not. One of the most overated actresses of all time.
Angelina Jolie was beautiful now due to heroine/anorexia she just looks like an insect.
Sarah Jessica Parker do I need to explain?
Gotta say - don't think much of the way Robert Patinson (spelling?) looks these days - but wasn't his first appearance in one of the Harry Potter films as a visiting hunk from another school or something? He did look pretty good there - bit of a standout who you kind of knew was destined to have a bigger career...
Ditto Matthew McBongo - looks pretty ordinary these days - but think his almost-first outing was in some chickflick called something like "Driving in Cars with Boys" and he had a brief role as a muscled up cop/love interest of one of the leads (Drew Barrymore?). He sizzled! Knew we'd be seeing more of him -
Same as Brad Pitt in 'Thelma & Louise'...but nowadays - meh.
Agree with posters about Depp - the guy really looks like he smells bad and needs a scrub!
And Timberlake's appeal is completely lost on me. He just looks like some ordinary young guy you'd pass in a mall anywhere. Not in the least bit interesting or exciting
And Bradley Cooper looks like he's super-douchey - urgh!
BUT there's a big difference in being 'beautiful' and being attractive. It's completley subjective! So when people here dish SJP or Anniston, I disagree and can really see their appeal. They have fit, trim bodies & wear clothes well & both seem to have a sense of humour & fun - and come across to me! - as warm & likeable -
Unlike - say - Nicole Kidman - who is pretty enough, photographs well, wears beautiful things & is always styled beautifully - yet comes across as ice-cold and frighteningly ambitious. Don't find that 'attractive' at all - Scary!
McBongo's appeal has always been lost on me.
McBongo was hot in A Time To Kill, and even in Dazed & Confused. His face is too gaunt in recent times(c.f. Killer Joe, Magic Mike).
I get your point but Aniston is regularly featured on Most Beautiful Lists....she is styled real good and she seems like a nice girl but 8 nosejobs later I still don't see why the hell she's a thing and why adjectives like stunning get thrown around when clearly she's just a dye job with subtle implants.
Same with SJP at her peak.
some of the people being mentioned in this thread are ridiculous, but I will give you Aniston because she is exalted as some great beauty when she is just an average looking woman.
Channing Tatum is not as hot as he is made out to be, but I don't find him ugly. Renner is ugly, but I don't think I've ever seen him written up as some kind of Hollywood hunk.
That's part of their appeal as beauty/style icons. Relatable, non-intimidating. A triumph of work/grooming over natural beauty.
R140 that is the premise of every makeover segment on a talk show from local shows in Mobile AL up 'look what we did with her' ....because she was dumped so famously and she only has the acting skills to be on a sitcom people feel obligated to say she is beautiful when clearly she is not.
Who are the media people, OP, who claim that Justin Timberlake is attractive? If it's Perez Hilton or Michael Musto, they probably think Francis the Talking Mule is attractive.
Timberlake used to be very hot, altho not so much good looking as sexy. Very emotional face. You can tell those rumors about him being a screaming bottom are true.
Beauty is in the eye of the beholder. For instance, I find men's anuses alluring and irresistible, but women's vaginas repulsive and gross.
Uma Thurman is UGLY. When I was younger, I was so confused because the media raved about her beauty.
 I find Jennifer Aniston extremely attractive!
I'm surprised 'pretty woman' Julia Roberts hasn't been mentioned more on this thread, maybe because 'people' also seem to see her as so gorgeous.
Has Jon hamm been mentioned yet? He's the ugliest Guy the media has tried to shove down Americas throat
150 posts and no one's mentioned Reese Witherspoon yet? That chin. Those teeth.
She is seriously unattractive but the media has plastered her on a zillion magazine covers and waxed rhapsodic over her beauty.
[quote]Ditto Matthew McBongo - looks pretty ordinary these days - but think his almost-first outing was in some chickflick called something like "Driving in Cars with Boys" and he had a brief role as a muscled up cop/love interest of one of the leads (Drew Barrymore?). He sizzled! Knew we'd be seeing more of him -
haha, that was "Boys on the Side." I agree, he was delicious in that, and on top of that his character was very sweet. Yum!
OK, I watched Friends With Benefits tonight after I got home, and JT is pretty fucking hot. Cute/handsome face, great body. Plenty of the guys mentioned belong on this list, but I'm disagreeing on JT.
Who 'killed'' the Paul Newman thread?
This thread does not exist any longer.
Who did that and why?
Mean people you are!
Reese Witherspoon - she could hire that chin out for roadworks in the off season - and midget man himself, little Tommy Cruise - I think Katie must have sat on that nose, cos the dick can't possibly have been as big.
Basically any white actor who's called a heartthrob or America's sweetheart. Bland, white bread, overrated.
Glad to see there's so much agreement with me on Jeremy Renner and Channing Tatum. I thought I was missing something.
But some of the people mentioned here are ridiculous. Megan Fox? Kim Kardashian? You're nuts - they're gorgeous. And while Jon Hamm and Jennifer Aniston are hardly paragons of beauty, they're both very attractive human beings.
Never understood why anyone would think Mathew McCon. is attractive
How has nobody mentioned Michael Fassbender yet? All angles and bones. Pasty white skin with far more wrinkles than your average 35-year-old non-celebrity. Gross yellow teeth that he always shows off with that stupid, insincere Cheshire cat grin. Bad fashion sense. Basically looks like a dirty old chain-smoker. He is in no way an attractive man.
R161, not to mention he farts! While promoting "X Men: First Class" last year, he told of how he and James McAvoy would take turns farting on each other. Ew! Whenever I hear a male celebrity discussing their farts, I lose all interest (i.e. Brad Pitt, George Clooney, John Barrowman).
Robert Pattinson land Justin Timberlake look mentally challenged.
Madonna is a too short, pale, too hairy Italian who has had years of electrolysis and probably owns stock in Nair.
Karlie Kloss, that bizarre looking model. She's too tall, too skinny and looks like a cartoon character, this is today's version of beauty? In fact, most of today's famous models are bizarre looking.
Most musicians are not very good looking. The actual music, the glitz, the money and hype which surround the music scene makes musicians sexy, Steven Tyler, Jay Z, etc anyone?
R161 i really think a warning would have been nice with that link. I think I just threw up a little in my mouth. I don't see the fascination with this guy except that he went full frontal in Shame.
Some of these are bullshit. Scarlet Johansson is gorgeous. I hate George Clooney, but even I can admit he is handsome.
Darlings...MADONNA the bucked toof hag from suburban Detroit!
"Some of these are bullshit. Scarlet Johansson is gorgeous."
Sure, AFTER all the plastic surgery! She definitely had a nose job, that is apparent. Have you seen what she looked like in "Ghost World"? Google some old photos!
Where are the natural female beauties and handsome men?
Don't get me wrong, I think Kellan Lutz is sexy as fuck and would let him fuck me with his big cock until my hole was swollen shut, but his face. That face is frightening.
Bradley Cooper - sorry I don't see 'handsome' when I look at this guy.
What's frightening about Kellan's face, R169? I, on the other hand, find his face very attractive but his body too ripped and vascular.
I also think Scarlett J is gorgeous.
Don't know about any plastic surgery. To me it just looks like she grew into her nose.
Reese is not unattractive, nor was she ever marketed as some great beaty. She was supposed to be at most cute, which she was.
Yes, Gwyneth. Not only her but that stupid and illfitting pink Oscar dress. It looked like something you'd find on the floor of the Nordstrom outlet and convince yourself that even tho it gaped at the top and looked wrinkly it was fine b/c hey, Jessica McClintock in 1988 at 80% off? What a steal. Yet the media still puts that pepto-puke explosion on best Oscar dress lists.
I laugh whenever I read about George Clooney's "movie star looks" when he is out and about doing errands. He is a good looking guy, but when you see him in regular clothes he looks like a regular guy.
All those mousey looking actresses like Michelle Williams and her British equivalent, Carey Mulligan. I see prettier young women in Manhattan every day.
Lady Gaga = fug
I think Kanye West is attractive, but the media never compliments rappers on their looks. Common and Q-tip are as stunning as any of the Clooneys and Pitts. But that's a whole different thing.
[quote]All those mousey looking actresses like Michelle Williams and her British equivalent, Carey Mulligan.
Haha, I too think they look very similar. Them two and Samantha Morton and Tina Majorino should star in an updated remake of "Four Daughters."
Most rappers look and act like thugs R177. It doesn't help to have ridiculous names like Q-Tip.
That's not true, R179. Your hood is showing.
[quote]Most rappers look and act like thugs
R179 = inbred, racist white queen
No R179 I draw a distinction between guys like Obama, Van Jones, well educated, well-spoken, and misogynistic assholes. Snoop Dog cracks me up though.
Someone should start a thread: celebrities who are supposed to be sexy but really aren't. Let's start with every People "Sexiest Man Alive" since 1985.
Although I did think JFK jr. Was kind of sexy. Not so bright but sexy nonetheless.
George Clooney...never has been my type, and I don't think he's the most handsomest man alive.
I think we need two categories:those that were pretty at one point, and those that never were.
All of the people referenced have been deemed "attractive" by the media??? Seriously???
R91, naw Craig may have beautiful colored eyes but the shape of the eye itself isn't attractive. Nothing can really make up for a hole for a mouth, especially on a man. Sean Penn has beautiful colored eyes also but he's got that shapeless mouth that takes him out of the running. There's someone on here who has the hots for blue eyes but never takes the shape of those said eyes in consideration.
I've never seen Justin Timberlake listed as "attractive" in the media.
Timberlake has been marketed as a heartthrob for women since his boyband days.
R156 Remove WHITE and insert BLACK, bitch
Some of the current it men are all unattractive to varying degrees: Fassbender, Channing, Bradley Cooper, but Renner takes the cake.
Jennifer Lawrence. I love her body, but her face is worse than Renee Zellweger. I don't get why she's been crowned this "great beauty."
Sarah Palin. That huge head with the giant cow eyes, big nose and thin lips. Not even remotely pretty or beautiful.
Emma stone,kristen stewart,blake lively,daniel craig,channing tstum,robert pattinson
Justin Timberlake owns this thread. I am with you on that OP.
They guy has wierd, cold fish-like eyes. His hair is like a mesh bowl. If here were not too young for a toupe, I'd say it's the worst rug evah.
He takes the sexy back and makes it disappear.
Gwyneth Paltrow, Cameron Diaz, and Jennifer Aniston are the trifecta of overrated looks. Skinny does not automatically equal beautiful.
I'll add Angelina Jolie to that "skinny does not automatically equal beautiful" list, R196. Poor thing looks like a praying mantis.
Did someone say trifecta?
So much ragging on Timberlake. I know you've all seen some very hot pictures of him.
Josh Hartnett- he has a little boy face
Has everyone gotten tired of calling celebrities ugly? That can't be right.
Heidi Klum is so over rated.
Jill Kelly & her ugly ass twin.
Cillian Murphy is hard to look at.
I agree with Heidi Klum and Jennifer Aniston, except they have great bodies.
Jon Hamm Jon Hamm Jon Hamm Jim Hamm Jon Hamm Jon Hamm Jon Hamm Jon Hamm Jon Hammmmmmmmmm
Jon Hamm is cute but he doesn't look very good with his shirt off.
After seeing Hamm in Bridesmaids I don't really like him much. I feel like in real life that's probably what he's like. Sometimes he looks downright ugly.
I'll Hamm over that troll Timberlake any day of the week
Sorry, but Brad Pitt, Johnny Depp, George Clooney, and Angelina Jolie are all very attractive. Maybe Depp and Pitt need a shower and Jolie a sandwich, but calling them unattractive is silly. They may not be your type (Depp does nothing for me, nor does Brad), or they may have gotten too old, but anyone can clearly see they're attractive.
Hating their personalities, for whatever reason, doesn't mean they're not good looking.
Frankly, every celebrity and Hollywood personality is overrated in the looks department. I see beautiful on the streets every day. Hollywood is illusion and most of them up close and personal are unimpressive.
All of you faggots, who never thought Golda Meir was hot, don't know shit about hot women. Take it from us slimey kikes. Golda Meir was SO HOT, it makes my little Jew dick hard just thinking about her. What's not to like about a broad like that? Protruding eyeballs, bent over posture, horrible body odor and that beautiful Jew nose. What's not to like?
What are you babbling about R212? Is there a point your post?
R212 seems to have had some sort of psychotic break. Take your meds.
The media tells me that Matt Damon is handsome and charismatic but I find him bland. They also tell me that Jeremy Renner is at best 'unconventional', but I find him adorable and sexy too.
There's a reason why some of these people are on television and in movies and most of you are not. Even the oddest & plainest person on TV or in the movies are probably more attractive than the average person. They just know how to dress down & make themselves seem average so you can relate to them. That's what makes them actors & actresses.
That's why you have models doing commercials playing moms and dads, people with hemorrhoids, erectile dysfunction etc and we never notice they're actually models with cheekbones that can cut glass.
So someone like Jennifer Ansiton has a lot of women congratulating themselves as looking just like her or better but if they actually meet they're shocked at how much better looking she appears in person.
The paparazzi also contributes by taking the most unflattering photos of celebs they can to publish for the world to see. This gives the illusion they're not so hot. Most of us forget that we have equally bad photos but they never see the light of day because we just don't post those anywhere. That way we can continue the illusion that we're actually superiorly more attractive than these celebrities. When truthfully if most of you were chased down by paparazzi you'd look supremely hideous.
I find Jessica Biel repulsive looking. Did she really win some "Most Beautiful' contest, seriously?
The deep bangs look is not doing her any favors.
She has an odd fish like face with beady eyes and her teeth appear to be too big for her mouth.
Her kids with Timberlake will be some real ugly motherfuckers!
I don't see her beauty at all.
I think Biel is striking but those bangs she has now are awful.
Sorry R217 but you will never, ever be able to convince me Jennifer Aniston is some great beauty. Look at the movie poster for He's Just not that Into You. All of the other actresses are so much prettier that she practically looks like Quasimodo in comparison. You can't tell me that they did that on purpose.
Actually I think it's just the opposite R217. I think people who look great on camera actually look oddly proportioned or even ugly in real life: super-sized facial features on a flat round head, heads too large for the body, excessive slimness and lacking muscle tone and healthy skin. It's because try as we might, our movies and tv programs are never TRUE 3-D so what looks best on them is not what looks best in real life. That's why on all the modeling shows it's apparent that the drop dead beauties never become the supermodels.
Robert Pattison is hideous looking
Matt Damon has always made my blood pressure rise.
He was on the Today Show this morning and is looking a bit old and plump.
If I ever thought someone was hot I always have a fondness for them regardless of what happens to them as they get older.
Even plump old Matt is hot.
Robert Pattinson OWNS this thread. We are told he is attractive because he plays a god-like, perfect looking character, so that must make him some kind of sex god. Never mind that when he was cast as Edward Cullen 75,000 people supposedly signed some kind of petition because they thought he was too ugly for the role.
But once the media PR machine started Robert Pattinson went from weird looking British guy to sexist man alive.
R223, how did The Damon Butt look?
Yea, I find Matt hot at times.
I know someone who saw Aniston and was shocked at how terrible her skin was and how homely she looks he did say she was nice and low key.
On the other hand I have heard that certain actors are more attractive in person-for instance Laura Linney and Tom Hanks.
I honestly can't stand Pattison's tiny nose. It's disgusting looking. When he was first cast and I saw a profile pic I was shocked and thought it was a joke. It looks like it has been smashed in and half of it is hiding inside his skull.
That is the best description ever, R228.
R217 I agree to some degree, but it does seem like you have not seen many celebtrities in real life because, I for one was alot of the times VERY dissapointed.
One thing most of them have in common they are photogenic, and very very well kept I think alot of ppl mistake white perfect teeth and beutiful hair and clothes as for the person who has them as beng attractive.
I found Jennifer Aniston looks alot uglier in person. So far, most of them are alot shorter and less ravishing in real life, but they dress in an intimidating way.
Nobody thinks Johnny Depp or Jessica Biel is attractive? Really? Depp needs a bath and some grooming, but those are two good looking folks.
Julia Roberts, Jen Anniston, Reese Witherspoon, JenniferLopez, Kristen Stewart, Ryan Gosling .... Blah, the whole lot of them.
Biel's obvious nose job drives me nuts.
Taylor Swift is very ugly and Miley Cyrus has FAS face.
Aniston looks like an Okie from the Dust Bowl.
Taylor Swift is homely.
yup swifter is homely..has a bit of rat face and a shit body with deer like legs.
How has this thread gotten to 234 posts without anyone mentioning Christina Hendricks.
Oh yeah Christina...She is simply fat with a skinny face and not a great face at that she has ugly yellow teeth and her tits are too doughy she has mom tits. Not a great face either...
Justin Timberlake is VERY hot. OP must be blind.
Shia Laboeuf, Justin Bieber, and Orlando Bloom.
Never saw the appeal of any of them.
But how do you feel about her tits and her face, R236?
R239 Im drunk so leave me alone
[quote]Justin Timberlake is VERY hot. OP must be blind.
And you obviously have low standards. He looks like a redneck.
R174, that makes me laugh. That pink dress is something like 15 years ago now, right? And we still remember it. I remember those days. I really liked her acting, I really liked her style. And then I saw that ill-fitting dress with the flat-looking tits not filling it out, and especially the severe stuck-to-her-head hair. And the mags were going crazy for how 'good' she looked. And I was having a hard time reconciling the truth about how horrible she looked with what everyone was saying, and what I'd always expected of her. I was left with a big 'Huh'.
That dress marked the exact moment her star had topped out and began its descent. Before then, she could do no wrong. Since, she's just a fucking weirdo. And not attractive.
Eva Longoria. She looks like Fivel (sp.) in AN AMERICAN TAIL.
And January Jones. The comparisons to Grace Kelly are a joke. Jones has a very average face.
Pattinson permanently looks like he was dug up recently
Channing Tatum and Ryan Reynold both look like the have been ironed before going on camera
I honestly don't get Mary Louise Parker - great actress but not a looker.
Abe Vigoda owns this thread.
I finally saw the Hunger Games today and was constantly thinking about how plain and nondescript Jennifer Lawrence is. I looked in the mirror after the movie and realized how much we look alike--and I'm no looker.
Lea Durnham. Who told her she could take her clothes off and expose her doughy body to the world?
How about posing the question:
"People you THINK are attractive even though the media and popular culture tell you they're not"
I agree with most of the people listed or rather I find most of them unconventionally attractive but not exactly beautiful.
I thought biel was pretty before the plastic surgery,had the biggest crush on her in the 7th heaven days( same with megan fox)
I think mary louise parker is gorgeous( though it might be just that she looks like she could be my mom's twin and I love my mom)
Most of the male's listed i think look stupid(derp face) but still attractive enough.
The problem with Tatum Channing, first off his eyes are very close together (narrow). His eyes are pushed downward in the direction of his nose, and his mouth pushed upward to meet his nose.
And around all of this limited real estate that his eyes, nose and mouth shoved together is a huge amount full-moon flesh. It is grotesque.
Lady Gaga's lazy eye and overbite is horrible.
Justin Timberlake, put a set of coveralls on him and he would look like he escaped from some holler of the Apalachians of West Virginia.
Lady Gaga is so ugly and she has a hot bf. life is so unfair.
Mila Kunis - not very attractive at all
And she often looks quite unattractive.
But named Sexiest Woman Alive by Esquire magazine this month or last month.
Her body isn't that extraordinary either.
And she's a slob.
are you blind? MILA KUNIS UNATTRACTIVE...
The media has never once to my knowledge called Lady Gaga pretty, beautiful or attractive. The only words ever used to describe her are unique and talented.
But R256, she's been featured on magazines like VOGUE which is thought of as only having beautiful people on the cover. So even though no one has come out and said she's beautiful, the misconception is out there.
Anne Hathaway. She looks like Liza Minnelli's less interesting WASP cousin.
Please R257 you are reaching, the purpose of this thread are for people who the media constantly refers to as sex symbols when honestly they aren't especially attractive.
Lady Gaga is famous and yes on magazine covers, but she is not lauded as being some sexy fox. Which is good, cause she ain't.
Johnny Depp, Brad Pitt, David Beckham
Nicole Kidman IS on this list. Near the top.
Angelina Jolie is on this list but not near the top.
[quote]When was Timberlake ever deemed attractive by the media?
That Benedict Cucumber guy. He looks like an alien, and we're all supposed to not notice, I guess.
Brad Pitt - he's looking a bit ropey of late
Jen Aniston is the president of this club. But I am shocked by all the Bradley Cooper replies.
Brad Pitt is no longer handsome.
Johnny Depp does nothing for me.
Justin Timberlake has always been rat-faced.
No getting over Bradley Cooper's serial killer eyes
And most British imports are pale and ugly.
Jeremy Renner looks like an old woman to me. Sean Penn has that same look.
R269 u are a fucking idiot, he even looks good in the pic you posted to show how bad looking he is.
He looks like hook nosed old man
No, he doesn't, R277. He looks inbred. Always has.
Some of the responses here show just how subjective beauty is. Angelina Jolie, scarlet, beyonce, johnny Depp are some of the most beautiful people in the world.
Cate Blanchett owns every inch of this thread.
No better example of someone force-fed as "beautiful" who has a pelican's face and has looked like she's 50 since her 20s.
I love Blanchett's big nose and Dumbo ears. I think they're sexy, but, yeah, not beautiful.
I wish she hadn't fucked with her teeth. Now she looks more generic.
Cate Blanchett IS attractive.
She has every textbook attractive quality there is.
Sure she seems to be rapidly aging now that she's hit 40, but she has a timeless ethereal face with seemingly perfect features. Her level of gorgeousness is debatable, and even I wouldn't say she's "gorgeous", but she has a perfect face even if it isn't the most beautiful in the world.
She also has a perfect body. She has a small waist, larger hips, and shapely/fit but still slim legs. For a while she had large breasts, but they seem to have disappeared again. She is tall, pale, charming, with a wonderful smile. She is the type of woman that some people would consider a perfect wife. If not, she is still just a perfect human.

Not gorgeous, but a perfect face and body, you say? You've got some fickle peepers.
[quote]She is the type of woman that some people would consider a perfect wife.
Matronly. Like a mama bird.
r285, you have no clue what straight men consider the perfect wife, you ridiculous crazy homo.
[quote]She has a small waist, larger hips, and shapely/fit but still slim legs.
She has cankles (I saw them from the second row at the BAM). Her legs are a bit on the heavy side, but she's so skinny it's not that noticeable.
But I agree with the rest of your post, Mr. Upton.
Johnny Depp is NOT beautiful. He never was. If he wasn't a movie star, women would not look at him twice because after their first glance they would have declared him a homeless, dirty freak.
No matter what kind of plastic surgery she has, no matter which makeup artist or stylist she uses, Miley Cyrus still has a flat face/head and one of the most unsexy female bodies evah.
Jennifer Lawrence and Emma Watson.
I never got Johnny Depp's appeal, boring as hell. He just did sexy photo shoots for the mainstream masses. These days he is bordering on nasty and downright ugly.
Cate Blanchett has been in bathing suits and underwear in several movies.
She has surprisingly muscular legs, which were surprising only because she often looks very thin and almost frail. I didn't notice her cankles but I'm willing to believe it because she carries basically all of her weight in her legs.
Daniel Craig. How the hell did he end up becoming James Bond?
I only remember he existed because there is a journalist who says he occasionally hacks and accesses Daniel's voicemails or emails! I wonder if there is anything gay in those messages? Of course, if there are any news stories about the hacking, they will mention how "hunky" he is and call him "handsome" and a "sex symbol". Yuck.
The guy from Sherlock, Benedict whatever
JUSTIN TIMBERLAKE - Not ugly but not really attractive. The male equivalent of Beyonce. The media has TOLD US for years that this guy is sexy & talented & the sheep simply fell in line. When you wipe away the bullshit there's noting left but mediocrity.
JENNIFER ANISTON - A plain, ordinary, common looking woman. Nothing beautiful about her. About as attractive as whatever outfit or hairstyle she's wearing.
LEONARDO DICAPRIO - Manufactured nonsense.
GISELLE BUNDCHEN - A tall, striking, unfortunate-looking woman who (with the help of hair, cloths, makeup, lighting, airbrushing, etc) is good at creating the ILLUSION OF BEAUTY. Some tasteless queen decided that she was going to be the face of fashion back in the Late-90's & she made a career for herself.
GWYNETH PALTROW - Nonsense.
