Marc Anthony is not what I would call conventionally handsome, but I also wouldn’t call him ugly because I’m not rude and because beauty is in the eye of the beholder. Obviously Jennifer Lopez thought he was attractive, and I’m sure plenty of other people do, too, like his current wife Shannon de Lima. One of those people was not his father, who apparently raised Marc to believe he’s ugly as sin. Yikes.
During an interview on The Meredith Vieira Show this week (how that’s still even a thing, I don’t know), Marc revealed his dad’s top notch parenting skills and also insisted that it’s all about personality.
“My dad told me early on, he said, ‘Son, we’re both ugly,’” the 46-year-old said. “I swear to God, he says it to this day. And he goes, ‘You work on your personality. It builds character.’”
It all came up while Anthony was discussing his ex-wife Jennifer Lopez and his new wife, model Shannon de Lima, whom he said “I do” to this past November. After Vieira asked how he landed Lima, he responded: “It’s just marketing. I am just great at marketing. I was born with this mug piece — I’m skinny and stuttering.”
I do agree that personality is super important. You could be the best looking man/woman in the world and if you are dumb as a bag of rocks, I don’t have the time of day for you. Enjoy your “mug piece”, Marc.
