I had come here to comment on how Doctor Who seems to aim for this. Matt Smith especially is "ugly hot."
I had a thing for Marilyn Manson when I was a kid, definitely a case of "ugly hot." A lot of people in rock bands are "ugly hot" but that is specifically a case of them being made hot by being in bands you like.
Also, I love slightly unusual looking people so a good portion of the people I find hot are probably "ugly hot" to some extent.
|by Anonymous||reply 17||12/01/2011|
Other ugly hots from The Walking Dead: Norman Reedus and Michael Rooker. Reedus might just be plain hot, but I find his facial features to be unusual enough that he qualifies as ugly hot. Also, Rooker - at this point - might just be plain ugly but he has a ruggedness that I find hot. He had some conventional hotness in his youth, though.
Also, R17, you're not alone on the Marilyn Manson thing. When I was 13, I was hot for his busted-looking ass too. You're right though - take away the band and the image, you're left with homely, uber-dork Brian Warner. My thoughts on the MM of today: how is it possible to be both chinless and have a double chin?

Actor Russell Tovey is a huge gay sex symbol in England. English boys love lads with jug ears. In America however they're perceived as a defect, rather than the hotness they are. Which shows how fucked up America is. "Climb aboard" was apparently Tovey's response to a man who wanted to feel them.

R52, I met Moose many moons ago in LA at a private party. We talked for a good while, sitting all alone on a couch while everyone else partied and drank themselves silly. He was a very sweet, gentle guy who had very little understanding of just how sexy he really was. He certainly knew he had something gay men wanted to see (the muscular body and the big dick), but he couldn't understand why men lusted after him so because he considered himself "ugly as home made sin". Of course I reassured him that there was absolutely nothing ugly about him whatsoever.
I wish I knew what became of him. All of the people I knew from that era who were involved in the porn industry are long dead. I've always assumed he was gone since pretty much all the people he performed with have died of AIDS. Although I don't remember him ever bottoming (at least on screen), so maybe he made it through.

The epitome of "ugly hot" for me was a groundskeeper at the state capitol when I worked there. He was about mid-twenties and he had kind of a hooked nose and the corners of his mouth gave the impression of meanness. But holy God, when he was out raking leaves in his wifebeater shirt with his biceps bulging he was sex on legs.

I know, R64, I wish I had a picture. I can't think of anyone I can even compare him to. He had a busted face and a smokin' body and a manner about him that made him extraordinarily memorable for me. He was way beyond your run of the mill ugly/hot guy. That's the best I can do.

Colt model Moose had the ability to make you forget he was kind of ugly because the hotness frequently overshadowed everything else.

Yes, I've read the thread and I understand the concept, R106. I'm merely suggesting that the formula can (possibly, for some) be broken down to "hot body + busted face = ugly hot" (ex: Daniel Craig). I also notice for many it seems to be "nice features EXCEPT large nose = ugly hot" (ex: Adrien Brody).
