Ha, this question made me laugh. I've never heard anyone say they like those guys because of their personalities. I mean, how could that be the case if they don't know them personally? So obviously, looks do play a big part in why girls are so "obsessed" with those guys.
I don't really get why you're saying "it's sad that it's always the looks." Guys do the exact same thing with female celebrities. Also, I think you purposely picked the most unattractive/weird/creepy looking guys you could find to replace Robert and Taylor. Everyone is attracted to different things, and if you have an awesome personality, some girl will think you're even better than Robert Pattinson and Taylor Lautner.
And just for the record, I don't think Robert Pattinson and Taylor Lautner are really even that attractive.
No obviously if they were ugly we wouldn't be attracted to them. Compassion, love and all the other qualities are good but without physical attraction you wouldn't be compelled to be with them. If Megan Fox looked like Rosie O'Donnell would so many guys gush over her? No.
Would guys like Taylor Swift for her girl-next-door personality if she were ugly?
Lol I agree very much. Attraction always starts out with looks. If you aren't physically attracted to the person then their personality isn't gonna mean sh*t. But the thing is, is that they aren't gonna make Edward and Jacob ugly so basically since it's fiction, it really doesn't matter much.
Well to be honest I hate it because it illustrates bad relationships as good. Essentially it works out like this. Bella loves Edward even though he is a very controlling person that can only cause problems to develop in her life (evidently he does). She also loves Jacob even though he is a violent and unstable guy(that at any second as he said he will hurt her). So basically girls loving those two guys illustrates that those guys are the right guys to fall in love with. A guy who controls them and damages there lives or a guy who is violent and unstable. Neither of the male characters she likes are proper traits for girls to love. They illustrate traits of bad boys. Traits that interestingly enough girls seem to love already. Guys hate that girls love those traits based on those characters, because it means that good guys will now be considered even less attractive. In order for them to be considered attractive based on that book they either need to be controlling like Edward or unstable like Jacob. Do you see now why guys hate those movies and books?
Those guys do not have good personalities. They are actually two different variations of bad boys...
