Word du Jour: Hugly

A hugly guy has unconventional good looks. He's no movie-star-perfect Brad Pitt or George Clooney with symmetrical features. He may even be called "ugly" by the person who doesn't appreciate offbeat hotness, but we find him "ugly hot" and eminently huggable — hence, he's hugly.

In homage to the hugly guy we find adorable, we're rolling out a new Faceoff game to ask you "Who's the Hugliest?" Stay tuned for this sure-to-be addictive game!

Sorry but this is the dumbest thing I've heard in a long time, and it's totally missing out the definition of "hot" (can't believe I'm typing that): models are handsome or good-looking, not hot. "Hot" = being attractive, and it's most of the time linked to personality and/or charisma. I consider most of the guys described above to be hot (George Clooney included) while not being model-like. And I'd describe most models from ads to be handsome yet not hot, and not having model-like features does not mean one is ugly. Also, Javier Bardem or Adrian Brody definitely aren't ugly (imho)! How pathetic is it we find it ok to describe those guys as ugly, yet reserve the right to be offended if men make the same negative judgements based on a woman's appearance... I thought most sections on this site was to emphasise 'the real beauty comes from inside' or 'we're all beautiful no matter what people say' and other stuff like that..

Oh, and when are we getting our "Who's your favorite fugly hot chick?" post, Tres?

How funny. I was just remembering this morning how Tres completely ignored the French posters who said "No, this isn't a term we use," and here we are. leslievanhoute, excellent MG reference!

Javier is HOT. definitely never even on the verge of ugly. except in No Country for Old Men. That was an unfortunate hair style.
