11. John Kerry / Alexandra Kerry
John Kerry. Good God. So one day, John Kerry walked into a bar. The bartender said, “Why the long face?” If ever there was an exemplar of the adage, “Politics is Hollywood for ugly people,” John Kerry would be it.
When the US Senator (D-MA) ran against George W. Bush as the Democratic nominee for president in 2004, conservative talk radio host Rush Limbaugh repeatedly and hilariously referred to him as “Lurch.” If you don’t catch the reference, sometime Google “lurch adams family.”
But sometimes you just dodge a genetic bullet and don’t look as ugly as your father does, and that’s exactly what happened to lucky lady Alexandra Kerry. Alexandra (born 1973) studied anthropology and modern culture and media at Brown University before getting her masters degree in film.
She has directed and produced some short films that have won her accolades on the film festival circuit. She got a lot of attention when she appeared at the Cannes Film Festival in a very revealing, sheer black dress. No wonder why. Hawt.
