Who is the most unattractive female actor Hollywood tries to pass as beautiful/sexy?

I was watching The Sting last night (great movie, btw), and could not help noticing how physically unattractive Loretta was. Yet, the movie obviously is trying to portray her as a sexy temptation to Hooker.

I realize Loretta is supposed to be
Spoiler:
a cold-blooded assassin,
but even so, couldn't they find a more beautiful woman to fit the role? Maybe I've just never been that desperate/lonely, but I thought she was ugly.

Another question about the plot of the movie. Do not read if you haven't seen it.
Spoiler:
Why would Lonnegan want to try to kill Hooker at that point? Was he wanting to screw him out of his share of the money? If so, why not wait until after the money was won? Wouldn't Lonnegan risk blowing the whole deal by killing Hooker before it went down?

Uma Thurman and Angelina Jolie. They're not 'ugly', they're just funny-looking, in a not-so-good way [imho].

Again, you are all insane! Lucy Liu is hot to trot! I can't believe people think he's unattractive! To each his own, I guess......more for me though. (wink)

Kirsten Dunst - Big head, little teeth = freakier than Kyra Sedgewick.
If she didn't have a nice rack, more people would notice her freakishly huge head.

It's weird because I thought that everyone thought she was hot. I had no idea. Anyway, Joan Cusack and Lili Taylor. Ewwww!

No, just a person whose opinion does not agree with yours.

No, I know, it's all good. Maybe because she reminds me of an ex-girlfriend.....but black.

I think that 80% of Lucy's attraction can be attributed to the roles she plays and their attitudes. She doesn't play this submissive little asian girl, she plays the naughty hardcore wench. But on looks alone, she's the cock-eyed, freckle-faced asian girl.
