Are celebrities really beautiful or is it only because media tells us? I think there are a lot of normal people who are more handsome or beautiful than a lot of stars. I think we believe the media too much that is why we see those celebs with halos on their head.

    Agree. Some of them are beautiful but NOT that beautiful. It's the media that dictates us about them and unfortunately, some laymen fall for it. I do agree with you that there are many "common" people out there walking down the streets in our everyday lives who are actually more deserving to be on the top of the "101 Sexiest Woman Alive" or "50 Most Beautiful People" list but the public don't know them so they don't vote for them...

    It's definately what the media puts out there. If all of these trends really were attractive, then why didn't cavemen choose women who looked like that and we all evolved to look that way today? It's ****.

    Celebs aren't as beautiful as lots of people in real life - look at photos of them without make up and you'll see how ugly most of them are!

    What is thought of as 'attractive' has some biological basis. e.g. people who are more left-right semetrical are more attractive, due to the genetic purity symmetry suggests. For similar reproductive reasons, big-chinned, wide shouldered males and big-breasted, wide-hipped females are generally more attractive.

    However, there is also a societal aspect to attractiveness, which is greatly influenced by the media. When we are young, and unsure of our own attractiveness and feelings of attraction, we are much more likely to be swayed by our idols and peers.

    If you learn when you are young that a certain trait - let's say shiny hair or long legs - is attractive, then you will be more likely to continue to believe that trait is attractive.

    In this way, the media (TV and movie stars) do define what is attractive, at least on a societal level.

    Well, do I need a reporter to tell me a celebrity is beautiful? My eyes can judge for myself!

    Yes!I think people exagerate too much when they say how beautiful they are although (some) celebrities are actually beautiful.
