Let’s face it, we are a vain bunch. So vain in fact that our entire entertainment industry is built upon glamour and looks. Where are the ugly people in Hollywood? There aren’t any. But don’t let that crush your dreams because you’re not alone.
From cutting auditions to over critical talent scouts, there are extremely high standards to be the face of Forever 21 or to play a leading role. As harsh as some of these are – check out these award-winning stars who were once told they weren’t beautiful enough to make it.
1. Meryl Streep
The 1972 King Kong producer Dino De Laurentiis told his son in Italian, “why did you bring me this ugly thing?” Streep replied in fluent Italian, “I’m sorry I’m not pretty enough to be in King Kong.”
2. Reese Witherspoon
Reece was told by all kinds of people within the industry that she was not tall, smart or pretty enough, but thankfully was too stubborn to care.
3. Chrissy Teigen
In preparation for a photoshoot for Forever 21, Chrissy was deemed ‘too heavy’ for a career. She seems to be thriving at Sports Illustrated.
4. Mindy Kaling
