When you’re famous, you get the pick of the litter. Male celebrities take glorious advantage of that, bedding models and other hotties left and right. But for some reason, female stars don’t as much, choosing mates that are a little lower on the sexy scale. In this feature, we’ll show you 10 smoking-hot celebrity women who paired up with totally schlubby-looking dudes. There’s a chance for all of us, friends!
The pneumatic Hendricks -- probably most famous for filling out the outfits of Joan Harris (nee Holloway) on "Mad Men" -- is bringing sexy back to the '60s and making redheads hot again. You’d think a babe of this magnitude could land any bachelor in Hollywood, but she’s hitched to the totally dweeby Geoffrey Arend, a bit actor who probably had his biggest role in "Super Troopers." What’s the attraction? The world may never know.
The former "Friends" star was married to total idiot David Arquette for many years, which means that her standards are already very low. But Cox actually went on record in a 2009 interview stating that she only wants to date ugly guys, saying that it would be “really uncomfortable” for her to date someone that looked better than she does. Big ups for just coming right out and saying it, girl.
When you’ve been voted the hottest woman in the world by Maxim magazine, you should probably be helping out the gene pool by dating the absolute hottest men. No diss intended to Jason Sudeikis of "Saturday Night Live," but he’s not even in the top 1,000. The comedian must have something going for him, though, as he’s also been linked with beauties like January Jones and Eva Mendes. Whatever it is, we want it.
The hostess of "Top Chef" is obviously way more into the mind than the body, as she spent almost a decade paired up with trollish writer Salman Rushdie, who is not an especially young or attractive dude. Since the pair broke up, she’s been linked with a few other doofy-looking fellas like senior citizen Teddy Forstmann. What do all of these men have in common? They’re really, really rich.
Adriana Lima’s husband Marko Jaric is a professional basketball player, so he’s not just some ordinary schmoe. But look at his face. His eyes are so close together that they’ve almost forced his nose right off of his mug. And when he grows a mustache, it’s like an eighth grader trying really hard. This is a serious beauty-and-the-beast situation.
One of the funniest hot girls in the world right now, Anna Faris has transcended her beginnings in the "Scary Movie" franchise. Her taste in men, though, tends toward the chubby and the schlubby. After breaking up with her first husband, actor Ben Indra, she hooked up with the unlikely Chris Pratt, who plays Andy on "Parks and Recreation." Dude’s not ugly per se, but he does pack a spare tire or two and looks a little out of place next to his ultra-hot wife.
If you’re going to look to television for a male role model who looks and acts like we do, the closest thing you’ll find is probably Turtle from "Entourage." So it was a tremendous shock when former "Sopranos" star and verifiable hottie Jamie-Lynn Sigler was spotted canoodling with Jerry Ferrara, the actor who plays him. What did these two have in common? Our guess is smoking a lot of pot.
The former star of "The O.C." is another Hollywood babe who absolutely refuses to be seen with attractive men, pairing up with guys like Brandon Davis and Cisco Adler. In an interview, Barton says that she spends way too much time in front of a mirror getting ready every day, and if she was with a guy who also was into primping it would just be too much to deal with.
Lovely actress and singer Emmy Rossum is one of the best things about "Shameless," but when it comes to choosing dudes, she’s more brainless. First she married no-chin record executive Justin Siegel in 2008, only to divorce him a year later. Then she hooked up with someone even schlubbier: Counting Crows frontman Adam Duritz. He’s a white guy with tiny dreadlocks, so you do the math. And no, we’re not suggesting you should have dreadlocks.

"Watchmen" star Malin Akerman is one of the hottest girls to ever came from Sweden, so you’d think that she’d land herself a strong-chinned Northlander with ripped muscles. But we guess we have an opposites-attract situation, as she’s married to Roberto Zincone, drummer for the semi-unknown rock band The Petalstones. So not only is he not even the band's frontman, but he’s also several inches shorter than she is.
