Scarlett Johansson's Sexiness Hindered Her Career -- 9 Actresses Who Were Too Hot For Hollywood (PHOTOS)


Don't hate her 'cause she's beautiful.

Scarlett Johansson is a drop-dead stunner — but that comes with its downsides. The Avengers actress recently lamented her good looks for keeping her from landing coveted roles.

“That has happened to me before,” the star said of losing out on a parts for being a pretty face. “That’s always an unfortunate thing… I would imagine when casting someone, you would want to challenge yourself in some way. It is so interesting to see actors transform. There are certainly plenty of times when I am definite not sexy.”

And ScarJo is not the only Hollywood head-turner who has bemoaned her beauty.

Megan, Halle, Charlize, Angelina — one is more gorgeous than the next.

While their out-of-this-world physical perfection leaves men drooling and woman dripping with envy, these leading ladies sometimes see their picture-perfect appearance as a hindrance.

From fighting for roles to obscuring their lovely looks, these A-list actresses have toiled long and hard to be known as more than a knockout.

What do you think of their comments on beauty — ridiculous or refreshing?

    none of these women are classic beauties like Grace Kelly and Joanne Woodward were when they were young though Ms Woodward is still beautiful now at nearly 83. as for the awards they don't matter at the end of the day as Woodward famously said "It's only fun for five minutes until you get back to your seat and realize it's only a statue". most of those girls don't deserve the nominations they got and Portman shouldn't have won

    They are all beautiful women in their own right, but no one's too beautiful. It takes hours upon hours for them to look how they do in pics. They're just selling an image.


    Beautiful photos… Can’t wait for another more…

    LOL, you just said Halle Berry is hot, but she is 46, but Charlize who is 36 is too old...

  • mattie

    um..again hot but a quite terrible actress

  • mattie

    I think Rooney Mara fits way better as Lisabeth Salander than Scarlett. Their body is just way to different and I don't really think Scarlett would agree to pierce her nipples or to change her haircut so drastically. I know many actresses auditioned for that part - Carey Mulligan, Keira Knightley, Natalie Portman, Ellen Page, Emma Watson or even Kristen Stewart. Natalie even has an Oscar, while Keira, Ellen & Carey scored a nomination. I think David Fincher made a joke. He took a huge risk by casting Rooney Mara, but it was the best choice.

    This broad's pretty full of herself. She looks like she will be the spittin' image of Shelley Winters in a couple of years. Too glamorous? Gimme a break!

  • Michelle

    She is not very hot in real life. I remember her in Sin City where she looked amazing.

  • Jorgie

    What the fuck are you on buddy! Too old, she probably can pump you better than anyone else. Fat chance, you will ever get it.

  • Sammie

    This dress does not suit her at all. Urgh

  • am99

    as an actress myself, God, I have to agree with you. I absolutely HATE it when directors typecast because the actor, in real life, resembles the character exactly. That's not the reason actors act! Actors act precisely because they are ABLE to transform themselves into characters who are NOT like them.

  • 1opinionatedchic

    I am honestly surprised at this! I mean come on this is HOLLYWOOD we're talking about here. The place where illlusion is rampant and the impossible becomes possible! Do directors seriously have no vision when it comes to transforming a star?!? I find that hard to believe. I mean did no one see Charlize Theron in Monster, Rihanna in Battleship (so i don't see what was so wrong with Scarlett J being the star in The Girl With the Dragon Tattoo), the hobbits in Lord of the Rings??! Ya never know what people are capable of until ya give them a chance. Regardless of a person's image a movie role is just that, a role and people go to see the movie because they like the storyline, because it looks interesting not only because they think an actor is sexy. Yea that's a plus I guess but shit...they could easily look at pics on the internet if that was all they were interested in...just sayin

    Theron, Jolie, and Hallie Berry have proven that with talent, hard work and lucky actress can overcome preconceptions based on their looks. ScarJo is average actress who got lucky at a young age and has gone a lot further than her talent or looks warrant.

  • bloggie

    Jessica Alba is a big nothing. Average looks and figure, blah personality, and slight acting ability.

  • shoji

    Megan has received more attention for her bad plastic surgery and stupid remarks than actual work. I'd put her in the unproven category, but I still don't want to see her puffy frozen face

  • deandra

    Scarlett needs to quit whinging and take acting lessons. She was passable in child and teen roles, but she's had many opportunities to become a leading lady and has failed to capitalise on them due to her limited skills.

  • DogPoopy

    Looks like bad photoshop Beyonce

    BS. Maybe when she was younger..

  • claire

    I think Megan was more rejected because she is a bad actress, not too hot!

  • mileyismylife

    Megan is the biggest hottie!
