It’s no secret that Hollywood’s version of “ugly” is a bit different than most people. It’s the optics of the industry, the feeling (perhaps right) that moviegoers won’t enjoy watching “realistic” ugly people on screen. Thus, you have truly lovely and even beautiful people dressed down to look drab and boring. That includes “nerds” as Hollywood just can’t let go of making folks look great, even as they play geeky characters. For males, it can be easy to look a bit geeky but for women meant to be nerds or geeks, it can be a bit different.
So many hot women have been made to look unglamorous to varying results but Hollywood keeps going to it. Some “geeks” are meant to be a bit hotter like Angelina Jolie’s character in Hackers but others are pushed as “the normal geek” when they’re far from it. Indeed, so many of these ladies are truly hot, far more than their co-stars and the show or film trying to cite them as “the nerd gal” is frankly ridiculous. There have been plenty of examples but here are the biggest, 15 women from TV and movies pushed as the “geek nerd” but in fact utterly gorgeous and sexy as hell and how Hollywood still doesn’t quite grasp how to portray “geeks” the best way.

1 Felicity Smoak - Arrow
From the instant she appeared on the first season of Arrow, Emily Bett Rickards won over fans as Felicity, the quirky IT tech who helps hero Oliver Queen on a job, a bit babbling but the way her blonde ponytail framed an attractive face with glasses made her stand out better than expected. The fans responded and so she was added to the regular cast and soon a winner with her fun humor and drive, helping Team Arrow bond, her hacking skills supreme but an incredible knockout when she donned an evening dress to take Oliver’s breath away. It helped that Rickards could rise above the glasses to be a fantastic sexy presence and a heroine in her own right. She could be amazingly hot, far more than the leather-clad heroines around her and a flashback just added to it by showing off her past as a goth hacker with a wicked side that made her later transformation remarkable. She remains the best part of the show and Rickards showing how the “hacker girl” can be so wonderfully sexy.
