Hot or Not- I don't get it

I'm going to apologize up front. This is going to be a shallow post. I'd like to discuss celebrities who most people think are "hot", but I just don't see it. I have been thinking about this topic for a while but was finally reminded about it after reading one of Dr. Zibb's similar posts last week.

I find it interesting that women can say things like "Brad Pitt is so hot, yet if their husband were to say something along those lines about Angelina Jolie they would be labeled an unfaithful, insensitive, jerk. Women can also say "she is so beautiful" when talking about another woman, but if a guy said something about how handsome another man was it would not go over as well. There seems to be a double standard.

I also want to make a disclaimer and say I don't think of myself as Lorezo Lamas judging if someone is hot or not. I know I am never going to grace the cover of People magazine as the sexiest man alive. I hope to share my comments in a nice way as to not even offend the celebrities who made my list. (there is a good chance they may be reading since most everyone in Hollywood reads my blog)

The only reason I am even addressing this is because I always hear people going crazy over certain people. I'll admit they may be decent looking or even attractive but not coo coo for cocoa puffs good looking like many people think. I'm not saying these people are unattractive, I just feel they are overrated by the public. Here is my list. The ones I really don't get are listed last.

Scarlet Johansen
Eva Longoria
Jessica Alba
Julia Roberts
Hillary Swank
Cameron Diaz
Rachel Weisz
Kristen Dunst
Paris Hilton
Katie Holmes
Sarah Jessica Parker
Uma Thurman

I am anticipating some disagreements, but that is expected. I understand beauty is in the eye of the beholder. Luckily for most of us, there is much more to being an attractive person than looks alone.

I think that Scarlet and Katie are cute. But I agree with the rest.

Gwen said...

Man, I really wanted to be disagreeable today but I agree with your entire list.

Guess I have to go kick a puppy now.

Fran Hill said...

Nope. Don't fancy any of them. Where's the list of men?

Dr Zibbs said...

Lorenso Lamas here. I hear you're talking about me.

Just kidding. It's me. Dr Zibbs!

On your list I think Katie Holmes is really good looking but she's not sexy.

Sarah Jessica Parker is just not attractive at all.

I have the hots for Eva Longoria but she isn't super sexy. Just really pretty.

Dr Zibbs said...

..and one more thing. Thanks for reading my blog. Feel free to leave a comment once in a while. Thanks.

Well, I think Rachel Weisz is adorable.

And I agree that Uma Thurman and Sarah Jessica Parker don't seem very attractive. But those two are the only ones on the list I have seen up-close and in real life and they were both really pretty. Weird.

Kelly said...

My mother always said that pretty is as pretty does.

I agree with some of your list, but Scarlet and Eva I would move to the A list.

Ocean Girl said...

Woh, some of your commenters have seen Uma Thurman and Sarah Jessica Parker up close and personal. If this is the closest I can get to Hollywood, I'll take it.

Tracy P. said...

Okay, now you have to make a list of who you DO find attractive.

I can't stand Julia Roberts mechanical android laugh where the chin drops and she sounds like a goose honking. 'Ank ank ank'

Um, going the other way with it to speak of actresses who people think aren't, I think that 'squinty' actress Rene Zellinator (or whatever her last name is) is really hot. Just something about her...

Roshni Mitra Chintalapati said...

yup! Agree with you totally! But, yeah! Where's the men's list and the list of people you do find attractive?! If we're gonna be shallow here, let's do it in style!!

Chaka said...

1. My wife

5. Monica Belluci
6. Halle Berry

Happy now?

Mary (MEM) said...

I'm glad your wife was #1!
I agree with Uma Thurman and Hilary Swank, but I think Scarlet Johansen is beautiful, and while Katie Holmes isn't exactly "beautiful" she is cute.
