    British Writer Samantha Brick: "I'm so beautiful, women HATE me. It's a curse!"

    Confidence is awesome. Delusion, maybe not so much.

    She's a '6' in my book, a '7' with perfect lighting and make-up... and even if she was a 9 or 10, trumpeting how awesomely hot you think you are is kinda inherently un-hot.

    A muffin top is usually a dead giveaway for 'not hot.'
    Oh, I've been in the film business for a while, but I just can't seem to get one in the can.

    O-kay, who'd like a banger in the mouth? Right, I forgot, here in the States, you call it a *sausage* in the mouth.

    I'll clarify: it looks like that belly has a muffin top.

    She just did it for attention. She's maybe a 5 in my book. On a good day.

    FWIW, she may have a point: I've certainly seen my share of competitive women say catty things about other women in the room who were prettier than they are, or who 'flaunted it' more.

    That said, I'm not sure Ms. Brick is quite in the league of such women who'd be talked about in that way. She sort of appointed herself to that group.

    If the whole thing was just a stunt to get page views on the Daily Mail's website, well, mission accomplished. Though I think even she seems taken aback by all the hubbub.

    She hit some sort of nerve, that's for sure.

    Tell her to come see me at closing time. I'll bet she looks a lot hotter then.

    Oh, you mean the troll from two weeks ago?

    Well, it worked, didn't it?

    She's basically inconsequential. It's the broader issue that's interesting.

    What I like about her, is that she doesn't have to be "hot" to be considered very attractive (in her social circles, not The Lounge.)

    In Europe, the women work with what they got, and accept themselves better. In America, it's botox and surgery and chin implants and teeth whitening and fake tans and extensions and silicone.....

    If a "5" can be considered a threat, then so be it. Attractiveness is more than just looks.

    Where I grew up, if one had to proclaim whatever they think they are (Like Samantha did) then it usually meant that they probably weren't what they think.

    Because one's own actual awesomeness speaks for itself, otherwise. It does not need to be proclaimed.

    That much, I agree with. This sort of research is interesting:

    Physical attractiveness and careers: Don

    Basically: If you attach a photo to a resume, it makes you more likely to be called for an interview if you're attractive -- and male. Plain women get more calls than pretty ones. It is noted that the vast majority of HR managers are women.

    Bog standard, suburban British blonde with beer gut. Looks like she knows how to knock back a few pints of cider. 'A thimbleful of talent in an ocean of ambition.' (as someone once remarked of Madonna).

    IMHO, she is hot. For a Brit. You're not taking that into account.

    Are we going to a cricket match? I love cricket. Seriously.

    For what it's worth, Duke, I dated a Brit for about a year while I was in college. Went home to stay with her for several months (lived in Buckinghamshire...Aylesbury, to be exact). And she wasn't as pretty as Samatha Brick. She was, however, a tennis player and very fit, so that made up for it.

    How are you against pace bowlers? You went to the wrong part of England. Yorkshire women are lovely.

    Word. Diana Rigg hails from Yorkshire.

    Sure, well past her shelf date, but have leather cat suits ever looked better than when Mrs. Peel wore them?

    On a semi-but-not-really-related-sidenote:

    I'm noticed a commonality in threads involving hot famous women, women famous for being hot, or women famous for being famous: the thread always ends up containing a zillion and four comments about how ugly the woman is, whether it's folks commenting on an "anorexic" Angelina Jolie or a jane-average women who's made it into the news for less than gallant reasons.

    I feel like the message trying to be sent is that "real women are better than these famous floozies." But most of us aren't as attractive as Angelina Jolie or even the Brit (who would have probably been considered undeniably gorgeous 10 years ago.)

    Regardless of the intention of the message, what does tearing down the physical attractiveness of famous (or infamous) women say? And though the article this thread references is about beauty, isn't the discussion point really about whether the author is correct about beauty affecting social dynamics, or if her perceptions are clouded by cockiness and paranoia? Would it change the article if she were a Heidi Klum look-a-like?

    This may very well happen when talking about famous men, but in all my observations I don't recall seeing a thread about Brad Pitt devolve into a slew of comments about how he hit every branch falling down the ugly tree.

    Anyway, less of an opinion and more of an observation.

    Compared to what I observed in several American airports yesterday, she's about an 11.

    Compared to what I observed in several European airports and train stations over the last 2 weeks, she's about a 4.

    I've seen Angelina Jolie in the flesh, from a distance of just a couple of metres and i can truthfully say that she looked 'OK'. She definitely didn't rock my world. Mind you, my girlfriend at the time was (to me, anyway) drop dead gorgeous with a mouth every bit as sensuous as Jolie's and with a perfect bum. What we need to do is remember that famous women were once 'real women', before the media got to them. Looking at a Hollywood star caked in make-up for the cameras is about as far from reality as it's possible to be for all us 'ordinary' folk. It was kind of sad that my g/f thought i was bullshitting when i told her about my 'Jolie moment' and how I felt that she didn't compare to her.
