Why is it that so many celebrities across the globe feel the need to flaunt their extravagant lifestyles, dating history, and endless amounts of selfies all over social media? Believing themselves to be the bee’s knees, so to speak, too many celebs think themselves as something they are clearly not, so sure of their beauty, that they feel they need to share it.
Yes, most superstars are stunning, a force to be reckoned with among the Hollywood elite, but others, sometimes, just don’t quite have what it takes to match those on a grander scale. Plus, with that extra added dollop of a huge ego, things really come tumbling down, with one’s bitter personality able to shine through any reasonably good looking face. That’s right, even if you are extremely attractive, a classic beauty, or sexy as hell, those with an over sized ego, are seen through straight away, automatically down casting them to the realms of unattractive celebrity. And, with our society known for its shallow and negative vibes, it remains easy enough to call those out who dare define their hotness to the world. Yes, life can be hard for a person in the public eye, but if they are to constantly throw images of themselves out there, declaring their amazing good looks, then who are we to turn a blind eye and dare not to comment?
So, to celebrate those who think they are better than the rest, here are 15 celebs who are not as hot as they think.
15. Kim Kardashian
Kim Kardashian. Famed for her rear end, marriage to rap mogul Kanye West, and a crass sex tape, she has somehow managed to become one of the most recognizable faces in the world. That’s right, the second rate Beyoncé and self-proclaimed ‘Queen of Calabasas’ is a force to be reckoned with among the Hollywood elite. Known for being the most beautiful of the Kardashian sisters, Kim certainly plays the part, uploading a number of selfies and pictures of herself daily. However, just like everybody else, Kim is prone to the odd breakout or two, displays horrifically bad hair days, and everything else that girls have to unfortunately put up with. But, unlike everybody else, Kim relies on Photoshop and touching up her photographs to hide the truth. In fact, Kim is so far into Photoshop that she often overdoes it, resulting in an over proportioned body, and a face that looks just as fake as the rest of her.
14. Keira Knightley
Queen of the period dramas, Keira Knightley is forever lauded as the most beautiful thing to have ever come out of England, or even one of the most stunning women in the entire world. In fact, Knightley is so well regarded as hot stuff, that even she thinks she’s pretty damn easy on the eye. That’s right, moaning that her good looks can be a “double edged sword”, Knightley stated,”your look gets you certain roles, but disqualifies you from others. That’s the way the industry goes”. Ahh life must be so hard. However, clearly underweight, Knightley’s body attracts a lot of attention, and is often accused of influencing eating disorders. A touchy subject, the star has vehemently denied the accusations of living with anorexia, with her mother recently putting her tiny body down to just having a skinny frame.
13. Paris Hilton
One of the first to undergo the curse of celebrity sex tape, Paris Hilton was also a major player in the drunken-drug binges of the early 00s. That’s right, joined by the likes of Nicole Richie, a pre fame and plastic surgery Kim Kardashian, and Mischa Barton to name but a few, Hilton was the self proclaimed princess of the Hollywood Hills. Owning the rights to catchphrase, “that’s hot”, Hilton certainly thought quite a lot of herself, attracting attention from men all over the world. Involved in a number of high profile relationships, with a number of douchebags, Hilton counts, Brody Jenner, Adrien Grenier, and ultimate douche, oil heir Brandon Davis as previous hook ups. Hardly unattractive, Hilton is just the average blonde rich kid from Los Angeles, with her success in life obviously attributed to her famous family and nothing more.
12. Anne Hathaway
Academy Award winner, Golden Globe winner, great singer, wonderful actor, and star of the universally loved The Princess Diaries, Anne Hathaway seemingly has it all. However, despite her girl next door image, cute little pixie cut, and somewhat sex appeal, Hathaway can sometimes be extremely unlikable, even bordering on extremely irritating. But why? Why do people despise the world acclaimed actress so much? Often attributed as the most hated celebrity in Hollywood, even James Franco can’t stand her, calling her a “goody two shoes”, after their disastrous attempt at hosting the Academy Awards together in 2011. With audiences around the world calling her fake, it seems Hathaway’s ego is too much to handle. In fact, constantly accused of over acting, even when accepting an award, Hathaway is seen as being unsympathetic, artificial, and fake. Ouch.
11. Kate Hudson
Firstly, if your mother is Goldie Hawn, then you are already a legend in our yes, so at least Kate has that going for her. Hardly unattractive, so to speak, Hudson is Hollywood royalty, with Kurt Russell also her step-father. However, with fame seemingly gone to her head, it is rumored that Hudson is extremely cocky, spoiled, and used to getting her own way. Not surprising knowing who her parents are. Known for airing her dirty laundry in public, Hudson has no qualms in shaming her real father, who she constantly calls out over social media. Coming off as a little crass, Hudson also loves to over share, especially with regards to the men in her life, as well as the father of her children. Never really reaching the same heights as her famous parents, Hudson recently got into trouble with her company Fabletics, with customers reporting a number of missing items and misleading prices.
10. Selena Gomez
Still a child in the eyes of many, Selena Gomez has never really been able to shake off that underage teenage vibe. Not the sexy vamp that she so wants to be, Gomez is still cute as ever, having been cursed with the gift of early fame at such a young and tender age. With the teeny-bopper inside her still shining through in all its childish glory, it will surely be a long time before she is taken seriously as an adult with real life problems, and real life issues with men. That’s right often singing about break ups and the woes of men, it can be difficult to take Gomez seriously when she continues to look like a 5-year-old. Plus, having embarked on a roller coaster ride of embarrassment with Justin Bieber for two years, being associated with the ultimate man child of all time can hardly help with regards to boosting your sex appeal can it?
9. Natalie Portman
Much in the same way as Anne Hathaway, Natalie Portman doesn’t seem to be as likeable as her fellow movie star comrades. Seemingly only able to convey one look, Portman is not your average leading lady, somewhat lacking that special something, as well as being an extremely overrated actress. Strangely, with a number of other actresses out there of similar age and stance, Portman somehow manages to rise to the top, despite her lack of acting abilities and classic Hollywood appeal. Yet, every year the Academy Awards and a variety of other such acknowledgements seemingly pour praise over the actress, with the star even receiving an Oscar for her role in Black Swan, in 2011. Also nominated this year for her role as Jackie Kennedy, in Jackie, Portman is forever adored by the Hollywood elite. Somehow, we are not convinced.
8. Lea Michele
Obviously one of the most talented on hit show, Glee, Lea Michele was definitely not one of the most beautiful, with stars such as Dianna Agron, Heather Morris, and Naya Rivera often rising to the top as the hottest members of the critically acclaimed television series. Plus, as well as lacking the looks, Michele was also heavily criticized with regards to her personality and how she behaved on set. Spilling on set secrets in her book, Sorry Not Sorry: Dreams, Mistakes and Growing Up, Rivera revealed some home truths about her former co-star. That’s right, declaring her to be “competitive”, Rivera went on to claim that Michele was jealous of her increased amount of screen time, stating, “as the show progressed, the friendship started to break down, especially as Santana moved from a background character to one with bigger plot lines and more screen time. I think Rachel—erm, I mean Lea—didn’t like sharing the spotlight.” Ouch!
7. Heidi Montag
Once upon a time Heidi Montag was an all American girl next door sweetheart, best pals with The Hills co-star Lauren Conrad, and on the road to a promising future. However, all that changed as she met bad boy Spencer Pratt, who basically turned her into his own creation, with Montag now completely unrecognizable from her former self. That’s right, falling out with Conrad forever, leaving the show, and undergoing over ten cosmetic surgeries, Montag now goes by the name “Speidi”, a mash up of her and her husband’s names. Not the same all American girl she used to be, Montag now looks like a poster ad for why not to go under the knife, looking as fake as box of knock off watches. Seemingly using Barbie as her inspiration, Montag is still desperately clinging on to fame, along with her clinically insane and manipulative husband Spencer.
6. Ariana Grande
With the media desperate to make Ariana Grande into some kind of sexual object, it can be easy to forget how young she is. However, still managing to look around 12 years old, on appearance and personality, we are swiftly reminded of how wrong it is to look at her in that way, especially with her childhood career starting at Nickelodeon. Yes, she may be 21, and yes she may have dated rapper Big Sean or whatever, but it still doesn’t take away from the fact that she dresses, talks and walks like an underaged school girl. Much in the same way as Selena Gomez, Grande will never be considered a sexual spectacle, well not for at least a few more years anyway. Plus, we are not the only ones who think so, with legendary performer Bette Midler also weighing in on the debate, claiming, “it’s always surprising to see someone like Ariana Grande with that silly high voice, a very wholesome voice, slithering around on a couch looking so ridiculous. I mean, it’s silly beyond belief and I don’t know who’s telling her to do it. I wish they’d stop. But it’s not my business, I’m not her mother. Or her manager. Maybe they tell them that’s what you’ve got to do. Sex sells. Sex has always sold.”
5. Courtney Stodden
A walking advertisement of what not to do with your life, Courtney Stodden is the epitome of desperate. Even worse than the disaster of Heidi Montag’s botched surgery, Stodden looks even worse, a pin up for parents everywhere to show their kids what road not to go down. That’s right, arriving in Hollywood at only 16 years old, Stodden got to work straight away in search of a rich husband and pounds of gold. Marrying 50-year-old, Doug Hutchinson, from whom she has now split, Stodden is clearly not ashamed of her sheer yearning for fame and fortune. Irritatingly and offensively basing her look on that of Marilyn Monroe, the most glamorous movie star of all time, Stodden has often cited the famed pin up as her inspiration. However, more of a Montag than a Marilyn, Stodden and Heidi are just more examples of the shameful Hollywood Z-listers we so often see today.
4. Kylie Jenner
Poor Kylie, from birth she has constantly been compared to that of her elder siblings, from Kim and her shameless search for global stardom, Kourtney and Khloe and their cynical sense of humor, and her best friend and closer in age sister Kendall Jenner, now a worldwide supermodel, of course the youngest of the bunch was going to find it difficult. Plus, famed for not being the most attractive of the Kardashian klan, Kylie still had some sense of appeal, often seen looking in disgust at the mayhem that often went on in her dysfunctional and crass family. However, succumbing to that of the Hollywood charm, Kylie underwent a series of treatments on her lips, turning them from thin brims, to juicy and plump edges. Denying that she had had any work whatsoever, the lips started to get even bigger, forcing Kylie to admit she’d had work done. Now, completely unrecognizable, Kylie has also seemingly aged a few years, looking at least 20 years older than her real life age of just 19.
3. Katy Perry
Often lauded as one of the most attractive pop stars around, Katy Perry is most definitely not. Hardly unattractive, Perry is pretty in the conventional sense. However, with her bitter personality and eccentric ego getting the better of her, the truth shines right through, discoloring her supposed sex appeal. Known for her very public spats, Perry has had words with a number of other famous celebrities, counting Taylor Swift and Britney Spears to name but a few. In fact, Perry is so obsessed with Spears, that she routinely bashes her in a number of interviews, referring to the very public breakdown Spears had in 2007. By ridiculing mental illness on more than on occasion, Perry has shown to the world her true colors, as well as her lack of empathy towards her fellow female pop stars who undergo the same trials and tribulations of the media that she does.
2. Kate Moss
Yeah, yeah, she’s the world’s best ever supermodel, blah blah blah. But, what really makes Kate Moss so special? First spotted at the tender age of only 14 years old, Moss quickly became one of the most famous faces in the world. However, due to a number of late nights, drink and drug binges, and dodgy ex-boyfriends, Moss seems to have withered away, with her model lifestyle certainly taking a toll on her looks. With her sex appeal well and truly faded away, the media still insists on forcing her beauty towards the masses, still painting her as the number one top model of all time. Now, with it recently announced that she has launched her own modelling agency, for those who aren’t as beautiful, Moss claimed, “I don’t really want pretty people… I want to create stars. I want to focus more on managing people’s careers than just running a model agency… I want people that want to sing and dance and act.” Perhaps she herself should enroll?
1. Taylor Swift
No stranger to the press, Taylor Swift is probably one of the most talked about celebrities in the whole world. In fact, Swift is so obsessed with the limelight, that if the paparazzi don’t photograph her, Swift does it herself, constantly posting pictures of herself all over her social media accounts. Known for her various ex-boyfriends, who she then writes about after she has broken up with them, Swift is one of the most desperate celebrities around. Often snapped with her squad of Victoria’s Secret models such as Gigi Hadid and super model to the stars, Cara Delevingne, Swift makes sure that it’s all about her, often garnering attention for the number of feuds she has with a variety of celebrities across the globe. That’s right, with a love for airing out her dirty laundry, it seems Swift is more focused on distracting those away from her average appearance and lack of talent.
