Gutfeld: The ugly truth behind beauty

July 03, 2014 / Written By Greg Gutfeld / Fox News

You've heard of Jeremy Meeks, a hood who looks too good. Meeks was nabbed for gang-related crimes, including packing illegal heat. But that faded away when his mug shot spread like hepatitis. Check him out. Yes, he's hot. So hot, you could roast marshmallows on him. So hot Al Gore blames him for the dead polar bears.

We cut slack to things that are easy on the eyes. Seriously, imagine if Adam Levine looked the way he sounded. - Greg Gutfeld

Rumors now abound about modeling contracts, reality shows. And so I pity the plain thug, convicted of similar crimes. Sadly, Meeks' cheek bones trump their scars.

That's life: Better-looking people get the breaks and the differences transcend race. Even David Duke would give his left foot to sleep with Halle Berry.

Me, I say good-looking criminals should receive harsher penalties, because they've had more options which they chose to ignore. We cut slack to things that are easy on the eyes. Seriously, imagine if Adam Levine looked the way he sounded.

And it affects me, too. Do you think America would hang on my every word if I were a 7 instead of a 9.4?

Meeks also gets attention because girls give it. Good-looking bad boys exist as traps that smart lasses must learn to avoid. Hollywood doesn't help. Every bad guy there is a charmer: Brad Pitt, Warren Beatty, Kurt Russell, Christian Bale, they all play killers. And so hot people are now stealing all the jobs from the not hot who deserve to play the villains.

But at least with Meeks, that will never happen. He was born to play himself.
