    I can't think of any celebrities off of the top of my head, but real girls yes.

    Vicarious narcissism.
    agreed

    esp. when the "celebrities" they say are hottest look a lot like them

    It's because the "less attractive" ones that they compliment do not induce internalized competitive anxiety. It's almost like a buffer; they're disqualifying them as competition

    Jealousy? :dontknow: I find some judge stereotypically "hot" celebrities very harshly too. Must be out of insecurity.

    lol seems legit.

    do even the "less attractive" celebrities they insist are so hot (and often look like them) act as a buffer then :lol:

    for celebrities, i think they genuinely mean it, also when girls compliment they look for things to compliment and appreciate because while someone might not be outrightly beautiful to guy, she may have certain qualities that girls cant point out and appreciate. Also it's nicer to compliment more people

    yeah its mean, i havent met a lot of girls who do that tho
    So girls compliment obviously not attractive celebrities who look like them because they see beauty as being more like themselves? Fair enough

    Well maybe they do think it is attractive but when you see a girl who has her makeup done well complimenting one who looks like a prostitute for instance.. surely she cant think the other on looks nice?

    I'd say they do this because the hot ones don't need the confidence boost as the medium ones do.

    I've seen girls do this with celebrities too.

    Maybe they just have bad taste but every celebrity, an average girl (average face or body) says is "hot" is often not so hot themselves and resembles them. Coincidence? :holmes:

    I've noticed this as well. It's because they're jealous of the really attractive girls, so they avoid complimenting them lol
    yeah i guess it gives them this superioty feeling that they've given something away, just my take on this situation
