    Default Celebrities beauties: Who is underrated or overrated in the looks department?

    Beauty is in the eye of the beholder but I have quite a few celebrities where I donít see what everyone else is seeing. So Iím curious.. excluding personality (if possible) and based solely on looks who do you think is overrated and who do you think is underrated?

    Overrated:
    Halle Berry
    Uma Thurman
    Margot Robbie
    Sophie Turner
    Meghan Markle
    Brad Pitt
    Beyonce

    Underrated:
    Mandy Moore
    Miley Cyrus
    Drew Barrymore
    Alicia Silverstone: "I think that the film Clueless was very deep. I think it was deep in the way that it was very light. I think lightness has to come from a very deep place if it's true lightness."

    I'll probably get banned from humankind for this, but:

    Overrated - Charlize Theron.

    And I agree with all three of your underrated, although Drew at her peak was quite the It Girl, and for a long time.

    And yes, Charlize Theron is overrated.
    Also, Cate Blanchett and Jennifer Lawrence.

    I agree about Margot Robbie. She's attractive but not the preternaturally beautiful creature a lot of people make her out to be. Jmo, of course.

    As for underrated beauties, Bryce Dallas Howard comes to mind. She hasn't got a fashion clue, but when someone else takes care of her styling, like in Jurassic World, I find her extremely beautiful.

    I used to find Halle Berry gorgeous. I don't at all anymore. Charlize is beautiful, but I don't think she is all that. Also, I don't find Uma the be all and end all some people do.

    I can't think of underrated beauties offhand. It's easier to think about the overrated ones!

    My overrated are:

    January Jones
    Sienna Miller
    Amber Heard

    I agree with tulip, It's easier to think of the overrated as opposed to underrated.

    I have to say that I am kind of disappointed in a retrograde thread like this where people are evaluated solely on their looks and Julia Roberts isn't the first person mentioned as overrated.

    She has definitely always been overrated, but people generally don't give much thought to A Low Julia anymore.

    Overrated:

    Gemma Arterton
    Diane Kruger
    Rachel McAdams
    Kate Winslet (in the looks department)


    And I agree with Amber Heard. Also agree with present-day Charlize, but I think it's her icky personality poking out along with whatever she's done to her face that makes her less attractive to me...when she was young, she was gorgeous though.

    Beyonce is overrated in EVERYTHING. She is the epitome of mediocre, but she's somehow built a fortune on it.

    Underrated:
    As for underrated, I actually would say Jennifer Lawrence. She has great cheekbones and she can actually kind of do a smolder, but I don't think she has great fashion sense or stylists, so I only really notice it in movies or magazine shoots.
    Keira Knightley (sometimes)


    I think it's also hard to think of the underrated ones because everyone plucks, pokes, and fills themselves into clones of one another now and the ones that don't tend to have more "interesting" faces. For example, I don't think Cate Blanchett is conventionally beautiful (though I think she is beautiful), but she has a presence about her and takes fashion risks, so beyond her actual talent, I admire that about her.

    I think everyone gets so overhyped. It's hard to find someone who hasn't been declared the most beautiful evah!

    True. And when the PR machines overhype someone and they get too much exposure (e.g., Jennifer Lawrence), it's so easy to pick out the flaws and the the actors start "fixing" said flaws and it becomes a cycle.

    Over rated:
    Leo DiCaprio
    Keanu Reeves (He's a sweetheart, but not really all that good looking to me.)
    Jennifer Lawrence
    Brad Pitt (I've never gotten his IT factor.)
    Kirk Douglas (as a young man--not NOW, for chrissakes.)
    And while we're going there, Michael Douglas.


    Under rated:
    Sienna Miller (it's her smile. She simply BEAMS when she smiles.)
    Bebe Neuwirth
    Mike Rowe (not really a celeb, but kinda. I would break him in half.)
    Jason Bateman (GodDAMN that man is so fine.)
    Debi Mazar
