I would like to ask for the '100 ugliest actors' list to be taken down because A, I think its rude and I for sure would not want my name to be on there. And B, I don't think that some people would agree with the list as each and every one of us have different opinions on how one looks, and whether they are ugly or not.

Better take down the 100 most beautiful too as it is offensive to people that are not. Better take down all lists because it offends somebody somewhere. Better not say anything because it might offend somebody. Better not make Spaghetti and Meatballs because it gives heartburn. Better not live as it might offend someone. We should leave the planet in spaceships really soon because we offend the Eco-system. Teran's better leave the Solar System because it offends Marvin the Martian.

No list can pretend to hold the "Truth", therefore, as you state, that list is subjective, and should not be taken for granted and representative.
I find that list stupid, as hundreds of lists I stumble upon when browsing IMDb, and I ignore them.So let it be.

Hi, Cindy Freestone. What is the URL to this IMDb name list? I agree that using the word "ugly" is rude. A more appropriate word would be "unattractive". The subject heading should be changed, if possible, rather than the list forced into being private.

Many of the people on the list are slightly "nerdy" looking, like in want of Golden ratio proportions. Hardly any these men would be expected to be rated a "ten". So, I can see where the list creator is coming from, but "ugly" is seems like such a rude description.

I agree. I looked at the list and was amused at "Who" was on the list. A couple of actors on the list would actually be cool with being included as it is their brand and it is what gets them work. So I can see that ugly was not used actually in a derogatory manner. It was used in a complimentary way in most instances. Yeah they could have used a PC word. But a Sanitation Engineer is still in the waste/garbage business.

It is a list by a user.

Hi All -

Just to clarify our List policy, first, please be aware that user lists published on the site are created and maintained directly by users, not by our staff. This content is not monitored or edited by IMDb, and does not necessarily reflect IMDb's opinions nor can we guarantee that the any statements made by users within a list are factual. Second, as long as these lists are not determined to be in violation of our content guidelines/terms of use, we won't delete or alter them, or affect their placement on our site.

So while the reported list in this thread is in poor taste, it doesn't violate our guidelines.
