The Eye of the Beholder #2


Continuing the occasional series...

Jennifer Garner:

Jennifer Garner is a highly accomplished actress regularly described as beautiful.

Me, I just can't see it.

I have friends who think she's beautiful. I have friends who can barely conceive that other people might not think her beautiful. I've had conversations with these friends, and they're not making it up, they really do think she's gorgeous. One of them is a lesbian, and she was as shocked as anyone to learn that I don't find Jennifer Garner beautiful. However, I don't.

It's not the out-of-line eyes or the strangely thin upper lip or the ... actually, maybe the chin does have something to do with it. It's the combination, though: I just look at the picture and get nothing back that says "beautiful".

Yet millions of fans disagree.
