Most Helpful Guy
Many, many men would absolutely be intimidated by her, yes. And even ones who had the guts to come up and talk to her would probably still have that "out of my league" thought in the back of their minds, and would end up putting her on a pedestal that she could never really live up to.
The reality is that everyone is really just another human. They might be truly wonderful, but they'll all have their flaws, even if they aren't readily visible.
Most people need a good 40-50 years to realize that people are people, and some folks never do. As someone who, for example, has worked with/around and met many celebrities, I long ago got over the idea that they were in some elevated class of human being. They're just people with strange jobs.
Beautiful women, similarly, are just people. True, some may be bitchy or condescending, but many are wonderful people. It's too bad that many men can't see past the beauty and at least get to know them, but having been a "nice guy" at one point myself, I also get why men get nervous or why they are so desperate to please such women. It doesn't make it healthy, though.
My advice to your friend is to tell her to be just a BIT more agressive in approaching men (in a friendly way) and helping break the ice. Once that's out of the way, she should be fine.
