Stars that make you go "huh??"

I’ve always wondered why people think stars like Tom Cruise, Julia Roberts and several others are such great beauties or hunks. I mean while neither of those two are ugly I just don’t see either as attractive.

What are some celebrities that most people find good looking that you think aren’t??

Tom Cruise is cute, but shorter than I am, which is somewhat of a turn-off.

Ricky Martin never did it for me, and tons of women think he’s the sexiest man alive. I tend to agree with those who think he’s a closet case.

OK, I’ll play. Nicolas Cage, Burt Reynolds, Cher.

Jennifer Love Hewitt

Cage may not be handsome but he is a real character. That makes him cool in his own right. Any guy who has a crashed velvet tux is pretty cool in my book.

Julia Roberts. Cybil Shepherd. Hugh Grant. (Hugh Grant is positively revolting. How did he get “hunk” status?)

Well I think the hunk label is very forgiving in men, but women is a different story.

I’ve never understood Julia Roberts either, and i could go on and on about the “distinctive” models that are so popular. The ones like Naomi Campbell, Tyra Banks, Cristy Turlington, and any of the Herion Shiek broads. Linda Fiorentino gets all these erotic thriller roles, but shes a hag IMO.

I don’t understand all the guy hunks who have these candy apple heads on little 5’6" bodies. Tom Cruise, Patrick Swayze, and a few other munchkins.

I’ll play, too.

I never understood the thing with Stephen Tyler of Aerosmith. This man is the ugliest person on the planet.

And frankly, his daughter isn’t all that either.

Julia Roberts has had a couple of attractive moments, but for the most part, she doesn’t do anything for me.

I’m sure this has been beaten into the ground, but I just have no attraction for Clarissa Flockhart.

Nick Nolte used to be mentioned often(locally, IRL) as sexy. Why? He looks like Frankenstein’s monster wearing pancake makeup!

Leonardo DeCaprio. Nuff said.

Madonna.

Nicole Kidman. She’s cute, but she ain’t all that.

Pamela Anderson. Honestly, she attractive, but there’s just something aboutt he way she looks (plastic, maybe) that turns me off. Knowing that she actually screwed Tommie Lee doesn’t help, either.


You say “cheesy” like that’s a BAD thing.

Leo Dicaprio - I thought his main appeal was to teenagers, but my sister (40+) loves him. My main complaint about Titanic was that he and Kate Winslet were a mismatch - he looks to be about 15 and she at least mid-20’s - unlikely love story. Other so-called hunks who don’t do it for me - Cruise, Brad Pitt, George Clooney; overrated females - Julia Roberts and especially Sandra Bullock. The hunk who DOES do something for me: Matt Damon. Oh, and I kinda lusted after Kevin Bacon in “A Stirring of Echoes” when he was digging up his backyard with his shirt off.

Sycorax: Thanks. I had Sandra’s name on the tip of my tongue. And that’s all of Sandra I’d want on the tip of my tongue. :wink:

I’ll second (or third) the Leonardo diCaprio vote. Patrick Swayze does nothing for me either. Both of these men have an effeminate quality that I find disturbing. Tom Cruise is okay, but he needs to find a new haircut. And I liked his teeth better before they were all capped. I like character in a face, not perfection.

Wow I thought I was the only one who felt that way! I never did understand how stick girls could be considered totally gorgeous. Women like Calista, Laura Flyn Boyle and the like. I figured it was just because I wasn’t a man, but skin on a skeleton is not my idea of attractive. As for males, I have to agree with the Hugh Grant, Patrick Swayze or Leonardo ones, can’t really see the attraction.

ALL of them. I’ve never liked any that the magazines promote as hunks. It might be brainwashing or sumthin. I like different looking guys,like Joey Ramone. Like to see a magazine say he’s a hunk. But lots of punk girls also think he’s hot,so its not just me.

Jeez…I’d be fascinated to know who some of you DO think is attractive, especially Omni.

I differentiate between:
I think this person is totally gorgeous” and “No, they aren’t really the type that appeals to me personally, but I can readily understand why others would feel that way.”

In other words, I’m able to distinguish between subjective and objective.

That said, there’s a whole lotta people that I personaally don’t find at all appealing, but I can see why people think they are beautiful/hunky.

I certainly don’t see anything attractive about Jamie Lee Curtis. I know she’s not usually listed along with the “beautiful people” of Hollywood, but I have heard people go on and on about how fine she is. Yuk.

Yes!!! And I’m gonna get flak for this, but Robert Redford (barf) and (gag, choke) Burt Reynolds, and Tom Sellack (sp?).

I gotta agree with George Clooney, and add Don Johnson, Mel Gibson, Sandra Bernhardt, and more I’ll think of later.

Stoid: We are all able to differentiate, but we’re simply listing a matter of taste, just stated in an extreme way. That said, I still don’t understand anyone seeing Hugh Grant as attractive. He reminds me of Vincent Schiavelli <img src=http://jamesbond007.net/Images/kaufman1.jpg>

Who do I like? Brendan Fraser, Sebastian Spence (Next Wave, on Sci Fi), Dennis Quaid, various others…

Dive:

I’m with you on that. And the explanation is simple: people, men in particular, are unable to distinguish between faces and bodies, especially tits. Jamie’s Lee’s face is at best pleasant, but her body is unquestionably one of the finest in Hollywood, if not on the planet. Did you see her dance for AH-nold in “True Lies”? That was no body double, she really looks like that. Amazing.

OpalCat gets my vote for hippest Doper of the week for having quick and easy access to photos of acclaimed character actor Vincent Schiavelli.
