I don’t fully understand the appeal. I’m not going to be one of those guys that pretends that he has (or had) “refined” (read: ridiculous) standards. I mean, she’s relatively pretty. Quite pretty, if you ran into her on the street. But by Hollywood standards, she’s rather unremarkable. Kind of odd looking. The sort of “odd” that I might have found appealing in its own sort of way in real life. But not 50 Most Beautiful People attractive.

I haven’t been this puzzled since Angelina Jolie. And Jolie had a certain mojo with bisexual or otherwise straight women that Hathaway doesn’t, to my knowledge, have.

I don’t get what makes her so remarkable.

  1. Mike Hunt says:

    She is stunningly beautiful, and has been since she was on Get Real with Jesse Eisenberg.

  2. trumwill says:

    Hathaway was really attractive when she was younger, but she’s matured… oddly. Again, by Hollywood standards and not everyday ones.

  3. Maria says:

    I think she’s very prettym and she gives off a “nice girl” vibe which is a bit unusual in the media today, where the “hottie” seems to be the only acceptable role model for women these days.

    James Franco and Anne H. were panned for their Oscar host roles, but I thought they did pretty well. They were much better behaved and less tacky than the older generation–Melissa Leo’s F-bomb acceptance speech being the worst offender.

    The Oscars inspired this post, though I didn’t actually watch them. It’s sad when decent behavior seems too much to ask of millionaires.

    In contrast, I’m rather fond of Angelina Jolie. FWIW, I think there are a lot of men who find Anne Hathaway hot because she’s thin and her face isn’t offensive. She’s not a girl next door type, but she doesn’t exude the raw sexuality that Angelina Jolie does, and I think a lot of men find that to be attractive in a long-term relationship sense.

    The one who currently puzzles me is Chelsea Handler.

    I think someone is playing a practical joke on us.

  7. Kirk says:

    I find AH to be pretty hot. I think part of it is due to her large eyes. (Though sometimes, I think she looks almost like an anime character because of them.)

    On the downside, she has a large mouth, and big teeth. All in all, I suppose part of her appeal is the way she seems almost attainable, when she’s really way out of everyone’s league.

    (Unless you’re an Italian scam artist, that is. I swear, you know you have a poor choice in boyfriends when he’s on CNBC’s “American Greed.”)

    Oh no, she isn’t even close to being attainable. The woman who meets that description is Rachael Ray.

    I thought it was interesting how much the Italian boyfriend resembled Zach Braff.
