The Ugliest Male Celebrity

Last Friday night, while freezing on a Queen Street patio during Toronto's unseasonably cold summer, this topic came up. I have to say that creating a list of the ugliest celebrity women would be far easier (think Sarah Jessica Parker or Celine Dion).

Now, two of the women in attendance have been embroiled in this argument for some time and are deadlocked: For them, it's Gerard Depardieu versus Notorious B.I.G. While I think that there is some merit to both making the list, Notorious B.I.G. is (I guess that should be was) far uglier.

But, for my money, I suggested one of the three Jerrys: Jerry Stiller, Jerry Orbach, or Jerry Lewis. Of course, one could easily add Jerry Seinfeld. Other names that came up were people like Keith Richards, Conan O'Brien, and Edward James Olmos. Wait, I suggested those three. Later, I regretted not adding Hervé Villechaize or Axl Rose or Ron Howard. Someone said Bryan Adams, but I am not convinced.

So, is it Gerard Depardieu or Notorious B.I.G.or someone else?

I don't think it's fair to choose a dead guy. They get extra points for worms and decomposition and such.

Good point, but I think she was thinking about when he was still living. Anyway, wouldn't he be all bone by now?

Jerry Stiller is right up here. There are others who make me cringe, but I can't think of them right now...

Problem with Depardieu is that he was never conventionally good looking, but he was better looking younger than now. But even now, if he keeps his weight down (admittedly, he no longer does this much), he's got *something* about him that's attractive.

But is it fair to choose an old guy, either? Because, you know, as we age, stuff happens to us to lower our attractiveness, stuff we have no control over whatsoever...seems unfair to "win" because of genetics.

I second that it isn't fair to choose a dead guy. I think the honor should go to someone living.

zydeco fish said...

Hmm, someone living, like Joe Pesci?

Have you seen Mel Gibson lately? What the hell happened there??

Alcohol might have something to do with it.

my personal choices would be clint howard (brother of ron) and quentin tarantino, who should really refrain from showing his ugly mug in his own movies.

as for women, i'd have to pick tori spelling, pre- or post-plastic surgery, doesn't matter.

zydeco fish said...

Wow, now those are great choices, not-anonymous-anymore Angela.

Stephanie said...

I, too, would say Clint Howard (always called "the other Howard" in my house), but also Carrot Top, Willem Dafoe (sp?), or Sylvester Stallone....

Kate said...

Of the choices listed:
Tori Spelling (NOT cute at all)
Carrot Top (ugly before the plastic surgery--horrifying now)

SME said...

Kate's got a point about Carrot Top, but I hesitate to call him a celebrity. I would have to go with Owen "Penis Nose" Wilson. Somebody fix that mess before he tries to kill himself again.

Stephanie said...
