When you think of the prototypical movie star or celebrity, you typically think of someone attractive. However, with social media and reality TV becoming huge, as well as movie actors and actresses becoming famous by doing more independent features, the looks of celebrities these days varies significantly from the past.

Here, we have ranked 8 of the more average looking actresses and 8 of the more physically attractive female celebrities who have made a name for themselves within the industry.
