(Newser) – There's pretty, and there's ugly, but there's also sexy ugly. Nerve runs down the "sexiest ugly people alive." The top 5, in reverse order:

  • Paul Giamatti: "Somebody's got to say no to firm jaw lines and six-pack abs, and no one does it with Giamatti's panache."
  • Courtney Love: "Yeah, she's the girl your friends tell you not to go home with when you've had a few. But she's also the gal you go home with after telling your friends, 'I'm not even drunk.'"

  • Mickey Rourke: "You can just picture those meathook-hands wrapping around your lower back and carrying you somewhere you desperately want to be."
  • Sandra Bernhard: "A sort of sex symbol for contrarians," she's "definitely funny-looking, but she's a bad-ass kind of funny-looking. Like a hammerhead shark, or a VW Bus."
  • Keith Richards: "It's true that Richards might be better-looking these days if he'd stayed on the straight and narrow, but then he wouldn't be Keith Richards."
