30 Jaw-Dropping Female Celebrities Who Were Told They “Weren’t Pretty Enough” To Succeed…

We all know that Hollywood is pretty harsh when it comes to their rigid standards of beauty; standards the vast majority of people simply can’t conform to. However, even celebrities that are conventionally attractive, are told by managers, agents and movie executives that they’re just not hot enough!

Often when female celebrities are starting out, they’re told in no uncertain terms that they’re not attractive enough for the career they’re trying to pursue. These women are made to think that they have only two choices: either they change something about themselves, or else get the hell of out of Hollywood! But the cream always rises to the top, and every single one of these women is not just beautiful, but also extremely successful in spite of the discouragement they’ve received along the way.

1. Gwyneth Paltrow

Gwyneth Paltrow is widely considered one of the most beautiful women in Hollywood, but there are a lot of people that think her so-called “stunning” looks are totally overrated. In fact, when she was only 20 years old, she was denied a role in the 1994 movie Golden Gate, because she wasn’t quite “striking” enough for the part. And this was in spite of the fact that John Madden, the director, had personally reached out to her to get her to come in for a casting call.
