Wealth and political power goes a long way towards helping homely people gain self esteem, which accounts for most of the names mentioned upthread.

What I would find more interesting is more Joe Schmoe type people who still have this trait.

It is easy to be confident if you have something other than looks to work with. What if you're ugly, poor, stupid AND still have a robust esteem for yourself.

Happiness is a choice, R16. You either want it or you don't.

First you have to accent yourself.

Lena Dunham owes this thread. As does James Franco.

I was JUST gonna say Lena Dunham owns this thread.

Like, owns it SO hard she is probably the OP. I'd also have to put Steve Buscemi up there with her.

In some ways, I think it's easier if you're homely to start with. I don't think any of the people in R10's list were hot as young people. Well, maybe Mother Theresa. You learn early on that you're not going to be able to rely on your looks, so you'd better develop some other qualities which make you interesting.

Even if you're physically attractive as a young person, if you're smart, you understand that your looks are only temporary. You enjoy and take advantage of your luck, but you still need to be good at something else. That would be me.

I spent some time with one of those "I'm 50 but I pass for 25" types recently. That is so depressing, but it's what happens when all you have going for you is looking good.

It's pretty easy to get past ugly. It's more difficult, but possible, to get past poor. But stupid is deal breaker. I don't know how you'd get past that.
