There are a lot of hot celebrities out there. We all know that, right? Or are there? Sometimes, it's really hard to tell. Say you've had a crush on a super hot celebrity for a long time, then all of a sudden, you see a photo of her where she looks like the Cryptkeeper from Tales From the Crypt. Or even worse, she looks like a totally normal woman. And seriously, how awful would that be? We can see normal women pretty much everywhere that we go. That's the whole point of having hot celebrities to look at -- they actually look better than our girlfriends and the other women we see every day, not worse. I mean, come on... we can see run-of-the-mill and garden-variety women everywhere.
So which is it? Is it just that these women had a bad photo taken of them and they really are super hot after all? Or is it more that they really aren't that hot, and the reason that we think they are is a combination of smoke and mirrors, some really good lighting, and a hot wardrobe and professional hair and makeup. It's hard to tell, really, but one thing's for sure: these supposedly hot women look pretty ugly in these photos. If you don't believe me, then read on and check them out for yourself. If you dare.
15 Kylie Jenner
Yikes! What in the name of God is going on here? Is this Kylie Jenner, by all accounts, an incredibly hot young woman, or is it a 51-year-old cast member from The Real Housewives of New Jersey? Is this a photo of Teresa Giudice before she went away to jail? Man, this is just not a good photo of Kylie Jenner. One has to admit, though, that whether you like her or not, this is obviously just a bad photo that was taken during a bad time, while many of these other photos are just more kind of what the actresses look like without wearing a ton of makeup. So, Kylie, we'll cut you some slack on this -- at least a little bit of slack. But either way, you totally look awful. Is that okay for me to say?
14 Jennifer Lopez
This is an odd one. Jennifer Lopez is gorgeous; this is something that can be said for certain. Like the sun coming up in the morning and the moon coming up at night, Jenny from the block always looks really amazing. Except here. While she doesn't look really awful, because that would be entirely impossible, she does sort of look like your wife does when she's in the mood and you just want to be left alone. Come on, Jenny... put a little effort in here! I know you're gorgeous, and you don't have to try very hard, but can you at least try a little? We're all depending on you to be hot. Even at 47, she still looks incredible. But for some reason, she doesn't in this photo. Not even a little bit.
13 Ariel Winter
Ariel Winter is pretty much the opposite of Paris Hilton. Paris is really hot, but people pretend that she isn't because they don't like her personality. Ariel isn't hot at all, but people not only pretend that she is; they also get worked up when anyone puts her down. Seriously, if you were walking down the street and you saw this coming at you, I'm positive that you wouldn't even think twice about how not hot she was. Like for real, this is what Ariel Winter actually looks like. No, she isn't hot -- unless you think that kind of chunky girl that works the register at Target on Sunday afternoons is hot. If you do, that's fine, but if not, then please... let's all just stop pretending. Saying Ariel is hot is like saying the Earth is flat.
12 Kaley Cuoco
Wait just a minute now... who the heck is this in this photo? Who are you, and what did you do with Kaley Cuoco? In pretty much every photo out there, Kaley looks super hot, but not this one; she doesn't look hot at all, as a matter of fact. To be fair, it obviously looks like she just worked out, and not only that, but it seems like she's trying to avoid the camera, almost like she knows that she looks totally awful. Seeing a bad photo of Kaley is kind of like seeing a shooting star: you know that it will probably be a really long time before you see one again. It's okay, Kaley... we all love you. Some of us love you in a somewhat normal way, while others of us obsess over you in a really weird way, but we all love you.
11 Iggy Azalea
It isn't much of a secret that Iggy Azalea looks a lot different when she's not all made up and dressed to impress. The thing is, if she ever wanted to go into hiding, she could just wash her face. She could probably perform in front of a hundred thousand fans who, in theory, completely adore her, and absolutely none of them would recognize her when the show was all over. In fact, although most news reports say that she was the one that broke up with Nick Young, if I were a betting man, I would think good old Swaggy P was probably the one who broke up with her, and it happened the first time that he woke up next to her in bed when she wasn't wearing makeup. Oh, and also, Iggy... please lose the hat.
10 Christina Aguilera
This is just plain old weird. When one mentions Christina Aguilera, one usually thinks of a woman that's at least kind of hot. But when you check out this photo, she looks more like what your Uncle Bob would look like if he was wearing a wig and had put on some really bad makeup. And what is up with the outfit? Doesn't Christina have any friends? Isn't there one single person in her life that could have pulled her aside and told her that she looked completely awful wearing this? This was during the same period that Kelly Osbourne started making fun of Christina for being fat, and you know that when that happens, you really have to clean up your act a little bit. Christina kind of did, but hey... this picture is still out there.
9 Ronda Rousey
Ronda Rousey is the perfect example of what I'm talking about here. She's always confusing. Sometimes, she looks totally smoking, and other times, she looks anything but. I mean, check out this photograph. Is this really someone you would brag about if she were your girlfriend? You know that you wouldn't. The only thing more confusing than how she looks is the way she fights in the ring. Is she a world class hottie, or is she kind of weird-looking? Is she possibly the best female UFC fighter ever, or is she the schlub that we all saw taking a nap in the middle of the ring? It would take a smarter man than me to answer these questions, but one thing for sure is she doesn't look that hot here.
8 Miley Cyrus
Miley has pretty much always been way more made of flash than she is substance. If you hooked her up to a lie detector machine, I'm pretty sure that she would agree with me on that even. She gets by on attitude and a willingness to take pretty much everything she does as far as possible. Still though, in most photos, she looks reasonably hot -- at least hot enough to pay some attention to. Not so much here. First of all, she's dressed like a 16-year-old boy who's going over to his friend's house to play Minecraft. Secondly, her hair looks dumb, and her makeup is weird. But most importantly, at least for the purposes of this list, she just doesn't look like an attractive woman. In fact, she doesn't even really look like a woman.
7 Paris Hilton
I know a lot of people would deny that Paris Hilton is hot in the first place. Those people are what is commonly known as "haters." Paris is obviously hot; you know she is, and I know she is. You just say she isn't because you don't like her attitude and how cocky she is. With all that said, Paris also used to party a lot. There are all sorts of photos of her all around the Internet of her being totally drunk and making a fool of herself. And when that happens, sooner or later, you're going to look pretty darn ugly. Even the hottest chick in the world starts looking awful when she gets enough booze in her. Paris is not the hottest chick in the world, but by the looks of her in this photo, she's had enough booze to render 10 strong men unconscious.
6 Demi Lovato
What's going on here? I know there are a lot of you that are just crazy about Demi Lovato, but let's be honest, shall we? She looks horrible in this photo, and not only that -- it really isn't a whole lot different than what she looks like all the time. Yeah, I know her hair is weird, and her lipstick is a total disaster. And to top it all off, she's wearing enough white makeup to be a mime, but still, you have to admit that part of the problem is her weird smile and those Runaway Bride eyes. I know it probably is just a bad photo, but that's the whole point really. If someone is really that hot, then what makes them look so bad in certain photos? We can give Demi the benefit of the doubt, if you wish.
Beyonce looks totally terrible here. This illustrates what I'm talking about better than most photos. Personally, I think that she's pretty hot and looks good in most photos of her, but I have to say, this is definitely not one of them. While most of the time she looks like the confident and sexy pop star that she is, in this photo, she looks like she's just been called to duty by General Urko. Beyonce, seriously, not a good look. You're just lucky you have the drive, the talent, and all of your other rather obvious assets to make up for the fact that you look so totally awful in this photo. If I saw you coming and you looked like this, I would run, and not walk the other way as fast as I could.
4 Britney Spears
Britney Spears is probably one of the biggest two-facers in the entire world. While this photo of her is incredibly awful, there are many others of her out there that look just as bad, if not worse. And then, in other photos, she looks absolutely amazing. One has to wonder if it's because she's more than a little bit crazy. I don't mean that to be insulting, of course. Personally, I tend to love crazy women; they make the world go around, in my humble opinion -- especially if they have a bank account like Britney does. What could be better than a crazy woman with all sort of cash? She can make all sorts of bad decisions, and they wouldn't even matter. Of course, it would be nice if your crazy woman looked different than the one in this photo.
3 Mila Kunis
There have probably been a few times that you've been jealous of Ashton Kutcher. He's reasonably talented, totally good-looking, and incredibly rich. Not only that, but he's slept with a whole bunch of hot women, including his previous wife, Demi Moore. Well, gaze upon this photo, and be jealous no more. It seems when he wakes up with his wife in the morning, she looks pretty much exactly like yours. And by that, I mean she's dumpy, she's wearing sweatpants, and she looks really angry. Too bad, Ashton! Looks like your life isn't any better than the rest of ours! Oh, who am I kidding? His life is way better than the rest of ours. Still though, Mila looks awful here, and I mean really awful.
2 Kristen Stewart
Sometimes, it isn't the face that looks totally ugly. Sometimes, the so-called hot celebrity is just wearing a ratty t-shirt and has pretty much the worst hair that anyone could possibly imagine. Is Kristen trying to look cool here? Because she really looks like she's auditioning for a role in This is Spinal Tap, except, to be honest, Christopher Guest had way better hair. I do get it, though... we all make mistakes. It's just that when most of us do, there aren't people around to take our photographs or people like me out there who gets paid to make fun of us. Not that any of us should feel bad, of course. She made it big in large part because of the way she looks, so if she looks dumb, then it's going to get noticed.
1 Julia Roberts
Julia is the other one -- other than Ariel Winter, of course -- who I pretty much just don't get. She makes a little bit more sense than Arielle as least she's tall and has a unique look, while Ariel is kind of doughy and looks like pretty much everyone else you see. But still, she just isn't that hot. She's a tall chick with nice hair and eyes, who can act a little but is also kind of horsey looking and has a mouth so big you could probably stuff a football in it. This is what one might call an ugly photo of her, but also kind of a typical one. She just isn't all that hot. Much of it is just hype and substance, but the camera doesn't lie. All of these people in this article look just like they do in these photos, or at least they did once.
