Need proof that anyone can feel unpretty? Check out this list of gorgeous celebrities who, for some reason, don’t think they’re as attractive as everyone else seems to believe they are. Or maybe they’re just fishing for compliments?
The Wolf of Wall Street beauty told Vanity Fair that “In my big group of girlfriends at home, I am definitely not the best-looking. I did not grow up feeling like I was particularly attractive. If I looked good in Wolf of Wall Street I cannot take full credit; it was because of the hair extensions and makeup.”
All of the many ladies nursing a crush on Michael Fassbender will be very surprised to hear that Fassbender “never really thought of myself as good-looking.”
Why? He says it’s all because of his awkward teenage years. “I used to have bad acne as a teenager, so all of this is a bonus now, the fact that I don’t have pimples anymore. And my hair was also, you know, unfortunate.”
Someone should tell him that he’s really outgrown all of that now.
Salma Hayek said that people only think she’s hot. According to her, it’s all an illusion: “I actually don’t have a good body. If you know how to dress, there’s some tricks you can pull.”
Even blonde bombshell Scarlett Johansson has trouble seeing herself the way her fans do. She said, “I don’t think of myself as sexy. I tend to see flaws in my appearance.” Do you see any?
Believe it or not, Ryan Gosling said, “I’m not that good-looking. I think I’m a pretty weird-looking guy. Every role I got up until The Notebook was the weirdo, freak, psychopath, nerd, outsider character guy.”
Someone get that man a working mirror.
Audiences may think that Mila Kunis is a beauty, but the star says she doesn’t see it:
“I appreciate the attention but I don’t think of myself as particularly attractive at all. I also don’t have that naturally sexual or sensuous way of behaving that some women have. I do have a pretty sharp sense of humor, though, and I think that has helped me.”
Believe it or not, beauty Olivia Wilde didn’t think funny man Jason Sudeikis would be interested in her at all – because of her looks.
Wilde said, “I thought, ‘He won’t be interested in me; I’m not a contender. He was so cool, so funny – I was such a fan of his and had always fancied his speed and his intelligence. I thought, ‘I’m not beautiful enough or his type.’”
Fans may think the Hemsworths are some of the most handsome brothers on the planet, but that didn’t stop Liam Hemswroth from saying, “I don’t consider myself a heart-throb in any way.”
We know dozens of Hunger Games enthusiasts who would seriously beg to differ.
Can you really take dozens of selfies a day and not be into yourself? Apparently so. Kim Kardashian told Glamour that she’s definitely not as “sexy as everyone thinks.”
Do you believe her?
Rihanna may think Alexander Skarsgard is “hot,” but the former True Blood star said, “I’m insecure, like most people. I have days where I feel like the ugliest person on the planet.”
If you can believe it, this is what Megan Fox thinks about herself: “I don’t think I’m a sexy, beautiful woman. I look like Ted Nugent in a black wig.”
Maybe she’s forgotten about all those times she was named “Sexiest Woman” in magazine polls.
Penelope Cruz, like Salma Hayek, said her lauded beauty is an illusion: “I don’t think I am beautiful. I can look good and I can look ugly.” Could gorgeous Penelope Cruz really have off days? We’ve certainly never seen them.
The Oscar winner bravely opened up about her struggles with insecurity by revealing that she once “felt unbeautiful.” That is until her mother taught her that “what is fundamentally beautiful is compassion for yourself and for those around you.”
She may have been a Pussycat Doll, but apparently Nicole Scherzinger has trouble admitting that she has sex appeal. She claimed, “I don’t really see myself as sexy; I’m the biggest nerd I know.”
