One of the big impacts that the media and the film industry has had on the general public is how we perceive beauty. Sure, maybe these ideals aren’t created by film, but they certainly are perpetuated by it, and people are watching and listening. Whether it's symmetry in the object's face or the absence of blemishes, the people we see as beautiful are usually the same across the board. Most of our heroes in films are beautiful. It's easier for an audience to relate to a beautiful person for whatever reason. We won't get into the science behind it here because, frankly, I don’t give a damn. But the truth is we like beautiful people, so movies give us beautiful people on screen, or is it that we're given beautiful people on screen, so we like them. Ugh. Who knows?
But what about the uglies? Yeah, that's harsh, but not everyone can be classically beautiful. If we didn't have ugly people, who would we compare to the beauties. Being gentle about how ugly certain characters are doesn't make them any better looking. If we start treating ugly people like everyone else, all the benefits for good looking people will have to be shared. The horror! So let's just have some fun. I'm sure these uglier folk are great people deep down. In fact, I know they are great. The people on this list are the characters we love. We just don't love the look of their faces. Ohhh. C'mon. This is not a huge revelation. These characters are scarred, deformed, non-traditional, or a combination of all of the above. The characters on this list just aren’t great looking. That's the point. Here are the 15 ugliest beloved movie characters of all time.
15 Austin Powers – Austin Powers: International Man of Mystery
14 Yoda – Star Wars
13 Justin McLeod – The Man Without a Face
12 Deadpool – Deadpool
11 Roy Lee "Rocky" Dennis – Mask
10 Gollum – The Lord of the Rings
9 Erik – The Phantom of the Opera
8 John Merrick – The Elephant Man
7 Ron Weasley – Harry Potter
6 The Toxic Avenger - The Toxic Avenger
5 E.T. – E.T. the Extraterrestrial
4 Quasimodo – The Hunchback of Notre Dame
3 Sloth – The Goonies
2 Edna Turnblad – Hairspray
1 Mac – Mac and Me
Mac doesn't look like you or me. It's tough to actually describe what he looks like. Well, at least it's tough to describe while using family-friendly terms. Built on the success of E.T. the Extraterrestrial, Mac and Me might not be as beloved a film as it is a terrible film, but we won't take that out on Mac. Besides the fact that he looks like a mix between a naked mole rat and a naked human rat, he's a lovely little thing. He's very sweet and tries his best. It's not his fault that he comes from a people who are ghastly. Always looking like he's in the middle of whistling, Mac's fleshy face and bulging eyes are half of what makes him so ugly. It would be interesting to know if the creators were going for cute or horrifying when they built that monstrosity.
