The Eye of the Beholder #8


Continuing the occasional series...

Sophia Loren:

Sophia Loren is a highly popular and accomplished actress who often appears in lists of the most beautiful actresses of all time (which I guess means of all time so far). Replace the word "beautiful" with "magnetic" and I might agree. Beautiful, though? I don't get it.

I think my problem is her eyes. I don't know what it is about them, but they just don't look right. Yes, I know a lot of people think they're her best feature (at least above the neck), but they weird me out. I think it's the angle they make, although when I rotated them just now to find out, it made her nose look too big. Here, take a look:

It beats me what's going on there. I'd accept that she has striking looks, I just don't think she's beautiful.

Yet millions of fans disagree.
