20 Movie Actors and Their Less Attractive Real Life Characters

Hollywood is a funny place.   It’s a place that tells true stories and makes then dramatic.   It’s a place that sets up these stories and manipulates them in such a way that audiences will go “ooh and ahhh” and talk about the stories when they go home.

While the stories remain almost all true you kind of have to understand that Hollywood is Hollywood and to make things interesting little tweaks have to be made.

One area that we’re focusing on today is the actual characters.  Nine times out of ten in movies based on true stories, the actors playing the lead characters are always better looking then the “real life” characters.

Here are 20 such examples….
