Are there more beautiful people in existence on this planet than there are beautiful people in Hollywood? Quite likely. But that ain't the same thing at all.

Pick a random TV star, and pick a random clerk at the grocery store for example. It's a good bet the random TV star would be considered physically more attractive than the random clerk. Can you find a grocery store clerk that is more beautiful than the TV star? I'm sure you could. But in a completely random selection, the odds are not in your favor.

That's why we discuss attractive stars. That, and the fact that stars will have oodles of photos about 'em on line and in print. If we asked you to start posting pictures of very attractive grocery store clerks, you'd likely get yourself arrested.
Good post, but please don't give anyone any ideas.

Nah, we'd soon be squabbling over some former clerk who hadn't worked a checkout line for over two years. And would stockers count? I see chaos and madness, people. Chaos and madness.

Nobody has ever said differently. Just like there are more 300 lb "fit" people playing football than the population at large. The point I tried to make earlier is that I probably know a dozen women more beautiful than Tara Banks, and the most beautiful women I've ever seen have never been in front of a camera of any kind. It's why I always think that when People or whoever has their issue about the most beautiful woman in the world, they are just not even close. The article name should be changed to "The most beautiful FAMOUS person in the World". We discuss attractive stars because we all know who they are. Nobody knows who Melissa who sits in the desk near me is, or my wife (she promised I could go out Saturday night if I said that ).

Because of the Megyn Kelly is a hit thread:



I figure her "news" is about as newsworthy as Jenny McCarthy's on the View.

In that picture, her face looks somewhat like the guy who plays Sam Winchester on Supernatural.

Her face looks 3x too big for her body, although that may just be the way the pic is framed (including airbrushed/photoshopped).

Years and years ago, my local grocery store clerk was a Raiderette and was, indeed, quite hot (though nowhere near 40). I went to the grocery store a lot.

I recall seeing Lucy Liu in one of the Angels movies where she was walking barefoot on somebodies back and thinking "gosh, even her feet are gorgeous!"

Naomi Watts turned 45 about a month ago.

Here she is this summer at the Critics Choice Awards:



And earlier this year at the Oscars:

I think Hoda is gorgeous, and a great personality too.

Note her lifeguard uniform requirements:
  • Fishnet stockings
  • Dark nails filed to talon-like points.

Nonetheless, nice....

Fishnets, to keep with the nautical theme. Nothing wrong with that. Nails help with the grip in the water.

So she's 10 yrs older than Diana, and still looks younger (and more attractive) than her. I always thought Diana looked older than she was.

I worked in Manhattan for three summers. Walked from Penn Station to 50th street and back every day. You'd only see women hotter than Tyra Banks if you think Tyra Banks is not hot. In which case you'd be crazy.

Technically Kristin Chenoweth was under 40 at the time of that FHM cover.

I worked in Manhattan for 10 years. I saw hotter women than Tyra, most days. And I don't think Tyra is really all that anyway.
