Right here where we live. Right here in St. A cast of favorites in the Charming Tuneful Love Story of the Early s! A running joke in the books is that she's fat. Depending on the Artistseveral of the female characters either avert or play this straight. There is Nuala's true form with the glamor spell that made her look like a blonde princess removed, who looks genuinely scraggly and underfed, though subsequent artists usually make her more cute and childlike.
The interesting thing is that despite this, she comes to prefer her true form probably because Dream prefers it, and it's implied she's in love with him. Thessaly usually looks genuinely plain, as even without her Nerd Glasses she has a very odd-shaped face. Thessaly's spin-off comics make her look adorable. In the graphic novel, Wesley Gibson's girlfriend is repeatedly described as fat, and implied to be fairly unattractive, though she is not drawn this way at all.
Seeing that she's knowingly cheating on him, this might be his way of expressing his anger with her. The first Silver Swan Helena Alexandros is treated as if she were a hag but despite having freckles and an overall mousy demeanor, she is actually quite cute. The short-time member Marrow is a complicated example that has more to do with her self-confidence and backstory than anything else. During an adventure on an alien planet, however, Marrow was wounded and placed in a regeneration chamber, which also smoothed her facial features.
Despite her newfound beauty, she was still self-conscious about her appearance due to having a visible mutation and the fact that her mutation involves growing more bones out of her body. Callisto, The Leader of the Morlocks, is a similar case. The Morlocks are a group of mutants that live in the sewer because their mutations make them look deformed and inhuman, and therefore easy to recognize and target among normal humans.
While most of them are distinctively inhuman in appearance, Callisto herself is not, as she is actually originally beautiful in her pre-Morlock life, but "ugly" because of her now-usually unkempt, haggard, and malnourished appearance due to living homeless in sewers, and also due to the facial scars she got in a fight which actually amounts to one lost eye rather than because of her mutation, but because of her solidarity with the Morlocks she has a similar view of herself.
But a 90's storyline involved her being stripped of her memories and healed of her scars and her missing eye, at which point, she actually became a supermodel when she lived a normal life in New York City, although she regained those scars and lost her eye again — and regained her memories — in yet another fight, at which point she returned to being a raggedy sewer-dweller.
However, she has still remained reasonably attractive ever since then, depending on the artist. It's implied that Callisto's original scarring and eye-loss was due to her being gang-raped by thugs as a young woman, after which the trauma caused her to become a homeless sewers. Her name itself hints at this, being extremely symbolicas it was taken from the Greek myth of the most beautiful Nymph of Greece who was raped by the god Zeus who is of course infamous for his libido and thereafter was transformed into a bestial appearance.
Ella Whitby, Deadpool 's one-time prison psychiatrist. In actuality, she's fairly pretty and barely 20 lbs. Also, another patient, the Foolkilleris actually madly attracted to her but his feelings go unreciprocated. Once conventionally attractive like all the other average comic-book leading men, he became ugly due to an experimental cancer treatment that saved his life and gave him superpowers but made him look like Freddy Krueger.
Being ugly is a big part of his character, and one of the things that he's very insecure about. Depending on the Artisthe can actually look the part, and be very repulsive. In other instances, he can almost be handsome again. While Marv is a hulking, scary-looking guy, his features are traditionally masculine so he's referring to his Face of a Thug.
Empowered has Emp herself, who is extremely attractive, but is continually insulted by the other heroes for being "fat" usually specifically referring to her buttwhich she's particularly sensitive about because her powers come from her literally skintight costume that doesn't work if she wears anything over it. Not a truly straight example, because her inner circle her boyfriend, her best friend, and the caged eldritch being from another dimension that lives on her coffee table don't think she's fat well, what Demonwolf says implies he does think she has a bigger-than-average butt, but he also seems to be kind of into that and phrases it in generally positive termsand even most of the people who insult her seem to covertly find her attractive the male ones, at least Originally she dressed in a conventionally unattractive manner and looked gangly and awkward.
Over the decades they've toned her down to just being an above average height girl with bucked teeth and a different build from the norm. H'el, an enemy of Superman considers himself a hideous freak. Like the Beastly example, H'el has a rock star's deathly pale skin, black eyes and a bunch of manly scars on top of the chiseled physique of an Olympic body builder and the flowing black hair of a Renaissance painter's ideal man.
Frankly, this "freak" looks like a god that descended from Mount Olympus, even more so than Superman. Most people would consider themselves quite fortunate to be half as "hideous" as H'el. Films — Animated In Corpse BrideVictoria's parents say that she has "the face of an otter" and considered her a disgrace to the family. Seeing how they are Jerkasses and honestly ugly themselvesthis could be because they needed someone to look down on.

The Harvey Girls includes Alma from Ohio, who mentions several times that she couldn't get married because her face is so ugly. Audrey Hepburn ; her characters were supposed to be embarrassingly frumpy and unattractive in such movies as Sabrina and Funny Face until the makeovers Aside from having her wear plain clothes, the movies made no effort to hide her beauty.
Values Dissonance is partly at play here - as she didn't quite match the standards of beauty at the time, and wasn't as uptight about having her costumes hide her body flaws as other stars. In a similar vein, Eve Arden was often cast as the Hollywood Dateless best friend. Even at the time, critics couldn't quite buy it. In real life, I'm sure Eve is the belle of the ball. They achieve this by It's quickly forgotten and she's the hot girl for the rest of the movie.
Especially egregious as she had just starred in A Guide to Recognizing Your Saints playing the neighborhood hottie. The film adaptation of Beastly has several examples: Lindy is supposed to be a Plain Jane who cares more about books and her classwork than looking pretty. The movie version casts Vanessa Hudgens in the role and attempts to "uglify" her with messy hair, bangs and a boho wardrobe. Apart from being a bit less polished, she looks no different than the "hot" popular girls.
The witch, Kendra, is described in the book as overweight and genuinely hideous, with bad teeth and skin, a hooked nose, green hair, and ratty black clothing i. In the film, Kendra is She looks like a Gothic fashion model, but the popular students still treat her as if she's hideous with Kyle calling her a "self-mutilated, tattoed Frankenskank".
The same goes for any of the other "ugly" students Kyle puts down during his campaign rally. None of them are even below-average appearance-wise, but he treats them as if they're hideously disfigured. Of particular note is a shy boy whom Kyle says has a "face like a burnt Lego".
Then there is the beast himself. In the book, he's turned into an actual beast fur, fangs, etcetera. In the movie, he just loses his hair and gets a lot of tattoos and scars. Not ideal, but nowhere near as bad as being a literal monster. The way he reacts to this updated appearance coupled with the way he treats average-looking, and even attractive people adds a lot of new implications about his character.
Carrie 's first two adaptations manage to skirt around this with the titular character; in the original Sissy Spacek 's character is said that she would look nicer if she made an effort, as demonstrated at the prom. And the remake has Angela Bettis go down the Beauty Inversion route to be believable as an outcast. Even if her hair is messed up, it's still fashionably layered with perfect highlights. She does at least work hard to make Carrie's attitude believable for a socially awkward girl.
Spacek herself was nearly cast to play one of the "pretty" popular girls, because the director thought she was too attractive to play a high school outcast. Spacek showed up for her second audition in a homemade dress, with her face and hair unwashed, and mumbled her way through her reading; the rest is history. The main character Georgy, meant to be a "brontosaurus" of a girl, is played by Lynn Redgrave. Because of this the character, despite being slightly overweight and frequently making grotesque faces, is still attractive.
The trope is somewhat justified in that Georgy's insecurity and social awkwardness make her seem less attractive than she actually is.
Charlotte Gainsbourg has made a career out of this trope, playing specifically unattractive characters in some of her biggest roles: She plays the title character in Jane Eyrewhose plainness is a major aspect of her character. In The Science of Sleep she plays the plain woman whom the main character initially ignores in favor of her more attractive roommate. In 21 Gramsshe plays a cuckolded wife whose sick husband acquires a more attractive mistress. Minnie Driver's character is supposed to be dowdy and heavyset at one point she refers to herself as a "heifer".
Even playing her against the gorgeous Saffron Burrows doesn't make this work. The Courtship of Andy Hardy has the title character mercy-dating the daughter of a divorcing couple on whose case his father, a judge, is working. She's depicted as such a "droop" that at one point Andy has to pay his chums to dance with her at a school prom. She's also played by Donna Reed.
Dogfightstarring River Phoenix and Lili Taylor, is about a crew of Marines who challenge each other to a 'dogfight' — finding the ugliest girl they can and bringing her to a party.
Phoenix's character selects Taylor's character in order to win this 'dogfight'. By Hollywood standards, she's hideous. By any real world standards, she's reasonably attractive.
The main woman is so "homely" that no guys will dance with her, young boys comment on her looks, and she generally limits her social life in despair. As the two fall in love, they become beautiful in each other's eyes — represented on camera by a strange blur on their features.
Even anti-dolled to look ordinary, she's still pretty. The producers considered James McAvoy the runt of the litter when it came to casting Wesley Gibson's character, but ultimately chose him because they felt he looked so regular that viewers would be able to relate to him more.
Another Winslet role, where her supposed frumpiness is a plot point but many viewers don't buy it because it's still Kate Winslet. Roger Ebert found it pretty laughable. In the stage original, the plain girl was played, to great acclaim, by Kathy Bates, who fits the casting requirement by being not particularly physically attractive.
For the movie version, the part was recast to Michelle "Catwoman" Pfeiffer. Hermione Granger is a source of debate amongst fans. She is described as plain in the books with bushy brown hair and large front teeth.
The films have Emma Watsonwho starts out cute and, as she ages, becomes positively stunning in the role.
