Beautiful Ones

We often hear about ugly people being discriminated against. A dear friend simply refers to them as “fairly attractive.”

But beautiful people are also victims of prejudice. Yes, sometimes being hot and sexy may be considered a handicap.

Who says being pretty is easy? Let us examine the evidence.

Jessica Alba: “I hope my new work will help producers in getting past my hotness.”

Eva Longoria: “I’ve lost a lot of jobs because I was too pretty. And everybody’s like, ‘Oh, poor you.’ But seriously, you don’t get the good roles when you’re beautiful.”

Cameron Diaz: “Why should there be prejudice against someone who’s had some success in films and looks a little better than average? It’s all in my genes, so don’t hold it against me.”

Scarlett Johansson: “Of course, it’s nice to be considered sexy, as a young woman in my prime. But I try not to think about sexiness.”

Kirsten Dunst: “I don’t try to be sexy. But if you are sexy, it comes out.”

Gwyneth Paltrow on her Shallow Hal role: “I got to expand my personality in a way that wasn’t about being a good looking, thin person.”

Jessica Biel: “One director told me, ‘I’m not looking for the sexiest woman, I’m looking for the girl next door.’ Parts that I really want aren’t going to me.”

Raft3r: “I am more than just a pretty face.”

Pardon the delusion. I had no decent sleep the past week. Sleep deprivation is a terrible foe.

Post script: Thanks to Us Weekly Magazine for the quotable quotes.
