25 Best Looking Celebrities That Aren’t Actually Attractive

Posted by , Updated on March 25, 2024

First off, let’s make this clear: a person’s attractiveness is completely subjective. However, there are universal standards for facial beauty regardless of race, age, sex, and other variables. Scientific researchers have come to the conclusion that the ideal facial proportion is 1 to 1.618. In simpler terms, an attractive face is normally about 1 ½ times longer than it is wide. 

As crazy as it may seem, some of the best looking celebrities aren’t actually that attractive. That’s because there are many other features a person can have that makes them likable. In other words, a person might have perfect features, but their lack of character leaves a less-than-stellar impression.

Personality, charm, and kindness are just a few qualities that have nothing to do with how someone looks but has everything to do with how they are perceived. Just like the poet Edwin Rolfe famously said, “You can never tell a book by its cover.” 



Russell Brand

The Daily Mail has labeled Russell Brand, a British actor, as nasty, heinous, and dirty. He is skinny, scruffy, and has messy hair … yet women all over the world seem to find him physically attractive.

Even Brand admits that he isn’t traditionally handsome but his cleverness and charm have a way of attracting women. This proves that good looks aren’t the only things that can make someone seem attractive.


Iggy Azalea

Amethyst Amelia Kelly, more commonly known as Iggy Azalea, is a model, singer, and rapper. Her music career started to take off when she released her EP Ignorant Art on September 27, 2011.

Her curvy body has helped to make her famous but it is also criticized for looking overly fake. That is one of the reasons why she is considered unattractive.

Azalea has also been caught saying racists remarks on Twitter and other social media platforms.


Mariah Carey

It comes to no surprise that Mariah Carey can be a diva at times. As beautiful as she may look and as angelic as her voice may sound, she can be very mean. Her nasty spurts of rude behavior make her drastically less attractive.

Some people believe that she feels entitled to get her way 100% of the time because she is worth around $520 million. We believe that everyone should always try to be kind and considerate no matter how much money they may have.


Nicole Richie


Nicole Richie is the adopted daughter of Lionel Richie and Brenda Harvey. She started to rise to fame for being a socialite during the early 2000s. She and Paris Hilton also stared on the reality TV show The Simple Life.

Nicole Richie’s slim figure, hazel eyes, and beautiful face have helped to make her a celebrity icon. However, she has also been known for acting nasty toward journalists and being difficult to work with during interviews.


Jason Biggs


Just because someone is good looking doesn’t mean they are necessarily attractive. Jason Biggs, an American actor and comedian, would be a good example.

He typically plays those nice “funny guy” roles in movies and TV shows. Jiggs has a relatively good looking face and body structure but he is missing that “wow” factor that traditional celebrities normally have.

Either way, Biggs has been able to make a name for himself in Hollywood. He has an estimated net worth of $13 million.


Lisa Vanderpump


No amount of plastic surgery can ever fix a person’s personality. Lisa Vanderpump is a British television personality and restauranteur who is known for her nasty attitude.

As beautiful as she may seem on the outside, her actions make her completely unattractive.  Vanderpump is a regular customer at Bar on 4 and their staff says that she is extremely loud, she doesn’t treat anyone with respect, and once she tipped only $5 on a $500 bill. 


Kylie Jenner


Kylie Jenner, a 22-year-old, self-made billionaire, mainly earned her fortune through her Kylie Cosmetics beauty empire. She also makes a good amount of her money through social media promotions.

The young businesswoman uses her beauty to her advantage. She is known for posting exposing pictures of herself to get more likes.

A majority of people do consider Jenner to be extremely good looking. However, there are people who think that her lip injections have caused her to look like an unattractive Bratz Doll.


LeAnn Rimes

Having a rude personality is one of the quickest ways to make a person seem unattractive.

LeAnn Rimes, an American singer, showed some questionable behavior during a duet with David Gray. Fans were shocked when she started to out-do the other performer by singing extremely loud.

After the show, Matt MacAllister, the radio host for KNIX, spoke about her diva behavior. When she found out, she allegedly threatened to kick his ass.


Emma Stone


When people think of celebrities, they normally imagine someone who is outrageously good looking. Emma Stone, an American actress, is one of the highest-paid actresses in Hollywood, yet she isn’t thought of as extremely attractive.

In fact, many people criticize her for having an annoying voice, small lips, and a lanky body. Despite some of her flaws, Stone has earned numerous accolades, including an Academy Award, a Golden Globe, and a BAFTA Award.


Ryan Gosling

Nick Cassavetes, director of The Notebook, openly admitted that one of the main reasons Ryan Gosling landed the lead role was because he lacked conventional sex appeal.

Cassavetes boldly told Gosling, “I want you to play this role because you’re not like the other young actors out there in Hollywood. You’re not handsome, you’re not cool, you’re just a regular guy who looks a bit nuts.”

Even if Gosling isn’t considered highly attractive, his charm and personality make him an extremely likable and relatable celebrity.


Miles Teller


It is extremely difficult to become a celebrity. Researchers actually discovered that only 0.0086% of the population of the whole world is famous. That said, an up-and-coming actor should be grateful for any opportunity to work on a set.

American actor Miles Teller seemed anything but appreciative when he landed a role in Divergent. He even told W magazine how he called his agent to complain about not having an interesting part and how the movie sucked.

So, while Teller is considered good looking, his actions are anything but.


Scarlett Johansson


Many people have different opinions when it comes to Scarlett Johansson’s attractiveness. The American actress is considered to be one of the sexiest women in Hollywood. Yet, some people think she isn’t deserving of that title.

She is criticized for having a pointy chin and overly emphasized cheekbones. Despite what other people think about her looks, Johansson has proved herself as a critically acclaimed actress. Throughout her career, she has accepted 42 awards and had over 143 nominations.


Bruce Willis


As harsh as it may seem, bald men aren’t exactly the epitome of attractiveness. Yet, Bruce Willis is considered to be a good looking guy. The American actor started his career on the stage in the early 1970s.

However, he didn’t start to rise to stardom until 1985 when he landed a lead role on the hit television series Moonlighting. His big-screen tough-guy persona has helped to make him a famous Hollywood actor.


Benedict Cumberbatch


Many people recognize the British actor, Benedict Cumberbatch, for his lead role in the hit television series Sherlock Holmes. Throughout his career, he has been fortunate to portray interesting characters.

Cumberbatch isn’t Hollywood’s most attractive celebrity, but he is considered to be good looking. His British charm and humble personality may make him seem more attractive than he actually is. It also doesn’t hurt that he is a critically acclaimed actor.


Russell Crowe


The world has seen Russell Crowe, an American actor, portraying epic hero roles in movies like The Gladiator, Robin Hood, and Cinderella Man. His rugged good looks and incredible acting skills make him an ideal Hollywood star.

However, his off-the-screen behavior has been anything but attractive. For a while, he was known for his outbursts at bars and even at award ceremonies.


Steven Tyler


Rock ‘n’ roll star Steven Tyler has a history of being a lady’s man, mostly due to his days touring with the American band, Aerosmith. He has fathered four children by three different mothers.

Many people find this man to be extremely good looking. However, his level of attractiveness is questionable.

Tyler looks more feminine than masculine. He has long brown hair, pouty lips, and enough botox to make the Queen of England look like a newborn baby.


Sean Penn

Sean Penn is mostly famous for being a Hollywood actor. However, he has also dabbled in journalism, filmmaking, and directing. He is another celebrity who is praised for his good looks but isn’t necessarily attractive.

Penn is known for his bad-boy tendencies. In 2013, he allegedly screamed, “Do we look like f**king zoo animals?” before smashing the phone of a fan who was trying to capture a picture of him.


Johnny Galecki


The world knows American actor Johnny Galecki as a nerd in the hit TV show The Big Bang Theory. His character, Leonard, is intelligent, funny, and at times charming.

In real life, Galecki is a sight for sore eyes. Some people go as far as to say that he has rugged good looks. However, Galecki wouldn’t normally be considered attractive because he is quite short and also rocks a curly, long hairdo.


Cuba Gooding Jr.

Gooding http://www.articlesvally.com/worldwide/rude-yh/2

Famous celebrities are constantly being bombarded by paparazzi and fans no matter where they go. As annoying as it can be, it’s just something that comes with the job.

Cuba Gooding Jr., an American actor, acted way out of line when a fan asked for a photograph in 2012. Instead of simply saying no or not right now, Gooding cursed out the fan. To make matters worse, it’s also reported that he shoved the bartender into the wall when he was asked to leave.

No matter how good looking Gooding may be, his actions were definitely unattractive.


Amy Schumer


The American comedian has made her views publically known on the universal standard of beauty. Schumer continues to push boundaries and openly discuss that beauty comes in all shapes and sizes.

Schumer herself is a pretty woman. She has beautiful long blonde hair, baby blue eyes, and a charming smile. However, some people will say that she isn’t attractive due to her height and weight.

Whether you think she is attractive or not, Schumer is one of the most successful comedians in Hollywood.


Maggie Gyllenhaal


Maggie Gyllenhaal, an American actress, has incredible piercing blue eyes and stunning, high cheekbones. However, many people continue to question her attractiveness.

Some of her negative features may include her bad posture, lanky body, and sunken in face. Despite that, she still seems to land leading roles in Hollywood.

Perhaps it has something to do with her acting skills and intelligence, which really are more worthwhile than a person’s appearance.


Adrien Brody


Despite Adrien Brody’s lanky body and narrow face, there is something extremely appealing about him. It could be his subtle yet distinct confidence or the fact that he is an amazing actor.

He is most commonly known for his lead role as Roman Polanski in The Pianist. Whatever it is, Brody has a certain charm about him that demands your attention.

It also doesn’t hurt that he has some pretty amazing locks and a killer smile.


Adam Levine


Adam Levine is an American singer, songwriter, and record producer. In 2013, he was nominated by People magazine as the Sexiest Man Alive.

Even though Levine was once considered as one of the best-looking men in the world, he has shown some ugly behavior in his past. It is alleged that he once told a fan after a concert that he doesn’t give autographs to ugly chicks.


Rachael Ray


A new warmth and energy were launched into daytime TV when Racheal Ray debuted on her very own cooking show. The celebrity chef received rave reviews for her charming and entertaining persona.

However, Ray’s off-the-screen personality has been described as anything but sweet. People who have worked with her have said that she has a short temper. Ray also allegedly once told a member of her staff, “I need stupid people not to talk to me.”


Justin Bieber

Constantly having cameras shoved in your face can’t be easy. Justin Bieber, a Canadian singer, has publically admitted that the stress of fame has gotten the best of him at times. He also apologized for his past actions.

During the beginning of his career, Bieber was known for being a standoffish celebrity who was rude to his fans. “As a kid, I didn’t understand the power of certain words and how they can hurt. I thought it was okay to repeat hurtful words and jokes but didn’t realize at the time that it wasn’t funny and that in fact, my actions were continuing ignorance,” said Bieber.
