I often look at pictures of celebrities whom the public consider to be beautiful/handsome and think to myself that if I saw them on the street I wouldn't think that much of them (based solely on outward appearance). I find it interesting that fame can make someone more attractive in people's eyes...

Agreed, money does seem to be an attractive quality, but what does that say about the onlooker? No matter how many facials etc. some people are still just plain....well, PLAIN! An yet people think they are "hot!" Strange.

Yes, but this is because when they start making money, they can hire a team of makeup artists, and doctors to correct what the image makers claim are their imperfections. So yeah, most would not be noticible, without the masks and alterations.
There are always those "seen without makeup" shots that help us mere mortals to see these celebs without the touch ups. But there are some that even made up just aren't attractive, but people think they are.
Absolutely. I hadn't given any names, but Taylor Swift was in my mind when posing the question. another would be Julia Roberts. Yet, both have been deemed beautiful by the masses (along with many others...)
God is the One who creates beauty indeed. The world has caused many to judge their beauty against others and society rather than rest in who they were made to be.
Good point - perhaps this attraction speak more about what is going on inside the onlookers. Many walk around feeling inadequate or unattractive and seek these things vicariously through celebrities.
Sparklea, I 100% agree that it is the inside that makes someone beautiful and there will be times when everybody lets you down. My question was solely about the exterior appearance & how fame seems to make people more attractive in the public's
OH, Okay, I do believe those who become celebrities are perceived by individuals to be more attractive, whereas, before that time, they were never noticed. Thanks for the correction. :)
That is so true - this phenomena is evident even in High School. Maybe then, even non-attractive people with a skill have hope...
Yep, yep and yep. There are so many. I think people are attracted to their lifestyle really, because purely beauty wise, there are some seriously homely celebs that are considered hot. e.g. Kristen Stewart = really very plain.
Phew, at least you and I are in the top 3% Savvy. Glad you agree with me on this subject matter and I totally agree with you about Jennifer Aniston. For me, Rachel McAdams would be in that 3% with us but Angelina Jolie would not.... just saying.
Lol petenali. Well, you are very handsome--for sure! However, I'm not in the top 3%, at least not lately. But, there was a time when I could have easily given Rachel a run for her money! OK, now it's time for me to say thanks while I "float on air."
Firstly, it was great to hear that you think you are pretty. Many women are not so self assured. "Getting things fixed" is a personal decision. Many celebs have had things fixed but are still not attractive, but others think they are.
