Do you have to be extremely good-looking in order to break into Hollywood?

Surely you've watched some movies. Surely you've noticed that not everyone in every movie is even ordinarily good-looking, never mind 'extremely' good-looking.

I do not think so.

Next time you watch a movie, count the good looking actors, and count the non-good looking actors.

It helps. In fact there isn't a situation where it doesn't.

Man or woman and what age are you talking about?

Steve Buscemi did. As the old man in Fargo said, he was "Kind of funny-looking.'

No - on so many levels.
Actors come in all shapes and sizes. Looks play a part in casting in that directors have a “vision” for the project and may want to cast people who look “right” with each other and have “chemistry”. But most directors don’t envision a show where everyone looks the same. And doesn’t matter how good you look, if you can’t act you won’t get cast. Looks are not as important as talent, training, experience, industry connections and professionalism.
And you don’t “break into” Hollywood. It’s show business, not a bank vault. Attempting a professional acting career basically involves starting and running a business where you are the product being marketed and sold. It involves contracts, unions, marketing and networking. It requires a good business sense including an understanding of your skills and how they fit into the industry.

No, you have to have talent, training, and drive.
Looks have nothing to do with acting.

No. Looks only matter if you want to be a romantic lead. Lots of actors and actresses get plenty of work as character actors and they aren't good looking.

Not really. Look at that fatass Amy Schurmer.
