Rumer Willis is on People magazine's annual Most Beautiful People in the World list. Your comments and opinions on this matter are encouraged in our Face-Off as The Hollywood Gossip staff debates the following question ...
DOES RUMER WILLIS DESERVE TO BE AMONG PEOPLE'S MOST BEAUTIFUL?
YES by Free Britney
The fact that some superficial editor even thought up this Face-Off topic leads us to a broader question: Why is beauty synonymous with certain types (say, Blake Lively) and not, as the saying goes, in the eye of the beholder?
Can beauty not take different forms? Or mean different things to different people? If Rumer Willis does not meet stereotypical bombshell criteria, is she less of a person? Does this make People less of a celebrity news magazine?
Of course not. Rumer Willis is very beautiful, inside and out. Kudos to People - and Chace Crawford (Rumer has it) - for possessing the values, heart and courage to break these negative societal paradigms.
NO by mischalova
We're guessing Rumer Willis was as surprised as we were to discover she made People Magazine's 100 Most Beautiful People in the World List.
After all, this actress has been through more hairstyles than Carmen Electra has husbands. You simply don't change your looks that many times if you're a fan of them.
Moreover, if you put the executives at People on the hit FOX reality show Moment of Truth, we're guessing even they'd admit Rumer Willis is far from attractive.
But she is edgy. And edgy sells!
There are only so many times a magazine can feature natural beauties such as Megan Fox and Audrina Patridge on its cover. We get that.
And we don't blame People for including Rumer for the sake of shock value. But they can't blame us, either, for calling them out on it.
