fact checked by Alex Hanton

Oh how low we have stooped! Following on from yesterday’s humor theme (and before we roll out some more serious lists) I thought we could have a look at the ten ugliest male celebrities. Many of these men are great in their field (whether it be music or film) but they are just plain ugly. Do you think I have missed anyone? Add him to the comments. Ugly actresses coming soon!

10. John Heder [Actor]


John Heder is a twin, and he is probably best known as Napoleon Dynamite. He grew up in a family of six kids and he speaks fluent Japanese which he learnt while on a mission in Japan for the Mormon church.

9. John C. Reilly [Actor]

John C. Reilly has played a host of seamy characters to great effect over the years. Of late, however, he has defied the odds by drawing in the ladies with his touching “common man” portrayals of lovable, good-natured schlepps.

8. Nick Nolte [Actor]


Nolte’s breakthrough role was in the TV mini-series “Rich Man, Poor Man” (1976), playing the role of “Tom/Tommy Jordache”. Nick Nolte said that when he played a young man in the early scenes of the project, he weighed about 160 pounds. When he played a middle aged man in the later scenes, he weighed over 180 pounds.

7. Pete Doherty [Musician]

Since 2005, Doherty has become well known to the public at large as a result of his relationship with supermodel Kate Moss, his status amongst fans and his infamous rock and roll lifestyle. His drug use, arrests, and court appearances are frequently reported in the tabloid press.

6. Elton John [Musician]

Elton John is a five-time Grammy and one-time Academy Award-winning English pop/rock singer, composer and pianist. Elton John was inducted into the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame in 1994. He has been heavily involved in the fight against AIDS since the late 1980s and was knighted in 1998.

5. Malcolm McDowell [Actor]

McDowell is an English actor probably best known for his portrayal of Alex in A Clockwork Orange, and more recently playing the part of Mr. Linderman in Heroes.

4. Lyle Lovett [Actor/Musician]


Lovett has won four Grammy Awards, including Best Country Album, Best Pop Vocal Collaboration, and Best Country Male Vocal. He has acted in a number of films, including Robert Altman’s film The Player, Short Cuts, Prêt-à-Porter, and Cookie’s Fortune.

3. Steve Buscemi [Actor]


Buscemi has become famous for his character roles, including Mr. Pink in Reservoir Dogs, Garland Greene in Con Air, Rockhound in Armageddon, Donny in The Big Lebowski and Carl Showalter in Fargo. Although usually a supporting actor, he has had critical success as a lead actor, particularly in his role as Seymour in Ghost World.

2. Marilyn Manson [Musician]

Manson formed Marilyn Manson & the Spooky Kids in Florida in 1989 (the name was shortened to Marilyn Manson in 1992). In the summer of 1993, the band drew the attention of Trent Reznor. Reznor produced their 1994 debut album, Portrait of an American Family and released it on his Nothing label. Why did he not make top spot? Because at least some of it is makeup – he can wipe it off, on the other hand, number 1 cant:

1. Michael Jackson [Unknown]
