These Hollywood Celebrities Defy The Narrow Definition Of Beauty

It’s fair to say that the majority of us have been raised to believe that in order to be successful, you need to have flawless looks. However, putting paid to that theory are several Hollywood stars that show us that there’s more than one limited definition of beauty.

We at Fatsaloon are confident that personality, confidence, intelligence and individuality are far more relevant when it comes to essential life skills.

These stars show is that it’s possible to be beautiful without fitting into the narrow definition of beauty that Hollywood has created for us.

Tilda Swinton


“I always knew I wasn’t good looking, and it’s a huge advantage. All my pretty friends started to trade their looks at some point. And I’m not only talking about sex. They always remember they’ve got fair hair, blue eyes, plush lips, and they should act accordingly. It’s a lot of pressure, from which I was relieved.”

Hugh Laurie


Hugh Laurie thinks he’s far from being perfectly handsome and that actors shouldn’t actually pay so much attention to how they look. As he puts it, until actors shine like Christmas lights, viewers won’t be able to see the real cinema.

Eva Green


Eva isn’t an ideal beauty by far, but she managed to achieve recognition thanks to her peculiar looks and talent.

“In Los Angeles, I feel like the ugly duckling, like I’m from Venus or something,” said Eva to British InStyle.

Benedict Cumberbatch


“At first I was afraid I’d be left out, but in time I realized the place I’m at right now can only be deserved with skill. And I thank providence for giving me this clue because I began working hard and success eventually came!”



“I don’t like myself only when I’m tired. If you show me two pictures with one of me being ugly and the other of me exhausted, I’ll only be worried about the latter.”

Daniel Craig


It’s hard to imagine now what outrage the choice of Daniel Craig as the new James Bond caused. Fans of the franchise criticized both Craig’s talent as an actor and, of course, his looks. However, Daniel proved them all wrong with his outstanding acting, becoming the highest-paid Bond ever.

Cate Blanchett


“Over the years, I stopped thinking too much about myself and my looks. Aging is a natural and fascinating part of our development.”

Hilary Swank


“I was 16, and I’ll confess that at the time I was taking it hard that I wasn’t a girl, a kid anymore, but a young woman. That I should look and act so that others liked me, so that I achieved success. All that made me so anxious.”

Javier Bardem


“When I see myself on a magazine cover, I realize the world has gone crazy,”
