The basic principle of acting is for someone to become something they're not, and one of the things that the actresses on this list surely are not is downright ugly. Yet, despite their non-ugliness, each of the actresses who make up the 15 spots on this list were made to look so for a movie role, just one of the many things people will do for money. For the actresses on this list, being ugly takes a lot of work. Whether it be by prosthetics, makeup or just a severe lack of care, once-hot actresses went from incredibly attractive to gross for their craft. Some of them transformed so much from hot to not that they won Academy Awards for it. Well, for being ugly and good actors, but there's no need to split hairs. Since most movies are chockfull of sexy people, the uglies stand out like sore thumbs, sore, wounded and ugly thumbs.
Maybe we'll deal with the phrasing we decided on up front. Some of you may be offended by "downright ugly." We, too, recognize that it may not be the most politically correct way of putting it, but we're truth-tellers, and truthfully, these characters are fugly. Remember when Romeo said something about a rose smelling just as sweet if it had another name? Well, Romeo was a freakin' kid, what the hell did he know? You can’t just change the rules halfway through the game. We call people ugly so that, when we use words like hot, gorgeous and beautiful, they hold more weight. We wouldn’t want beautiful people to suffer because of some lesser humans, they already have enough to worry about. Here are 15 downright ugly movie characters played by super hot Hollywood actresses.

1 Nicole Kidman, as Virginia Woolf
The great Virginia Woolf is known for her beautiful writings and her beautiful mind, but it turns out she was also dreadful to look at. This was news to us as well. When Nicole Kidman was cast in The Hours, we thought, dang, Woolf must have had it going on if Kidman is playing her. But, no, no she did not have "it going on." To transform Kidman into the homeliest of women, makeup artists spent 3 hours a day hiding the pretty. They then smacked a big ol' schnoz on her face to cover all that goodness underneath. You have to wonder if Woolf became a writer to hide that face. Maybe that's why all writers get into the craft. Wait a second…
