Top 15 Celebrities who are Just Plain Ugly

And no, I’m not including the link.

Why would anyone write an article like this?  Why would anyone read it?

Sadly, the answers are obvious.  Someone wrote it because he knew people would read it.  And people read it either out of pure voyeurism or, even worse, because they need to tear down others to feel good about themselves.

Maybe we should revisit some old cliches:

  • Don’t judge a book by its cover
  • Beauty is only skin deep
  • All that glitters is not gold

Sure, they’re cliches.  But remember:  cliches become cliches because people recognize their truth enough to repeat them over and over and over.

When we make the effort to see the best in others, that makes our world brighter.  With practice, recognizing what’s good in others can motivate us to be like them, which will make us feel better about ourselves.

After all, the grass isn’t really greener on the other side of the fence.
