    You have to remember the stars nowadays are Photoshopped to within an inch of their lives. "Film Stars" as they used to be, relied on good camera work and lighting but most of it was themselves. Monroe bleached her hair blonde and had a nose job and her jaw re -set. But I don't think many Hollywood "goddesses" did. As someone else said Audrey Hepburn, and Rita Hayworth, Greta Garbo ,Marlene Dietrich. These stars are immortal, and will be remembered and revered for their beauty and the films they were in forever more. Who the **** is going to remember Kim Kardashian in a hundred years time?

    If her husband actually becomes president then maybe... jokes aside, you are right! People like the people you named plus their characters and many more like ingrid Bergman, Vivian Leigh, their movies are classics, they are immortalized on the big screen. Generations of people connect with their characters and think they are "hot".

    Yes, the world is harsh but one must always have hope... because hope is what set the human race apart

    Different standards of what's hot, plus photoshop is so prevalent today.

    Also particularly a lot of 70s and 80s celebrities had terrible skin from all the sunbathing, smoking and were unfortunate to be in a time with very bad fashions (although it wouldn't have seemed it at the time, same as now).

    Aren't you the home of witty banter.
    You know you've lost the argument when you have to resort to correcting the spelling of proper nouns, how infantile

    Just admit how wrong you were. You poor uneducated soul didn't even know half those women existed did you?

    I'll probably spam you with 90d stars in a bit. Stay tuned.
