15 Successful Actresses Who Didn't Make It Because Of Their Looks

On any given page of any given issue of any given magazine, there is at least one beautiful woman. Be she a television actress, a movie star, or a video-honey-turned-bride-of-rap-Gods (Amber Rose), any woman that Hollywood photographs is attractive.

Or is she? Although attractiveness fills seats (and shorts!), a cardboard performance can still ruin a film no matter how alluring the performer may be. Christina Aguilera is a knockout, but critics gave Burlesque mostly bad reviews citing her acting, even though she was literally playing a sexy girl with a good singing voice. Rihanna’s role in Battleship was suspiciously short, with various publications running a “Here Are All of Rihanna’s Lines From the Movie” feature, presumably because the songstress was incapable of any more depth than additional lines would have required.

Beauty might seem paramount at a glance, but actual talent is sometimes enough to power an actress’s career. The fifteen following women show this, being not ugly but rather plain, but with enough telegenic charisma to get their names up on the marquee.

Renee Zellweger was once acknowledged as one of Hollywood’s preeminent beauties. Even playing the chubby basket case Bridget Jones, she could convincingly have heartthrobs Colin Firth and Hugh Grant joust over her. But recently Zellweger tried out a new face in which she is unrecognizable. Without her signature chubby cheeks and nibbled-lip, she now looks odd and uncomfortable. For some reason, her eyebrows also seemed to be largely missing, which is hilariously not cute. It’s a shame, but Renee Zellweger has chops and her career will undoubtedly persevere.
