So much for the so-called Ugly American, that hateful 1958 political novel that forever stereotyped U.S. tourists and business people as loud, egotistical and obnoxious.
Quite the contrary, it turns out that Americans — like Heather and husband-to-be George Clooney — are not so ugly after all. According to a recent international poll of 5,000 British travelers, the United States is home to the world’s most attractive people.
The folks at OnePoll.com say having Jessica Alba, Jennifer Aniston and Brad Pitt in our gene pool all make our country a “hotbed” of gorgeousness.
Actor George Clooney, a perennial nominee for Sexiest Man of the Year, does his part, too. His alter-ego is polygamous, marrying hundreds of female and male brides a day at Madame Tussaud’s Wax Museum in Las Vegas.
Extra props go out to Heather for her acting ability. Look how affectionately she is holding the Wax Clooney’s hand.
And best of luck to the real Mr. Clooney, who is up for an Oscar this weekend for Best Actor in “Up in the Air.”
(Heather Wang last yukked it up with skirt-chasing golfer Tiger Woods — long before he got caught).
