Added DiffLines:

* ''Film/{{Conspiracy}}'': Varies from character to character. Some are a pretty good fit for their real life counterpart, but for instance the dashing Creator/ColinFirth plays the ugly-looking [[http://www.holocaustchronicle.org/staticpages/HolocaustScans/HiRes/1935/19350008000006 Wilhelm Stuckart]]. Inverted with Gerhard Klopfer, who was [[https://upload.wikimedia.org/wikipedia/commons/0/04/Bundesarchiv_Bild_119-06-44-12%2C_Gerhard_Klopfer.jpg perfectly ordinary looking]] in real life, but is played by an [[http://4.bp.blogspot.com/-90BTffvk1go/UlPycHKEHfI/AAAAAAAAMt8/-xpVvk_SeaQ/s1600/10.png obese, unpleasant-looking actor]].

* Creator/{{Beyonce}} plays famed icon Etta James in ''Cadillac Records'' (2008). [[https://bossip.files.wordpress.com/2012/01/ettab-e1327098709967.jpg This comparison]] shows that Mrs. James, while still lovely, wasn't exactly,...well, ''Beyoncé''

* Recently, there was [[http://www.heraldsun.com.au/opinion/shallow-mary-makeover/story-e6frfhqf-1225813827425 some controversy]] surrounding the Catholic church's decision to photoshop pictures of Saint Mary [=Mackillop=] to make her more "appealing" for merchandising reasons. She went from a "[[http://blogs.abc.net.au/nt/images/2008/07/16/mary_mackillop_2.jpg frumpy elderly nun]]" to a [[http://www.heraldsun.com.au/opinion/shallow-mary-makeover/story-e6frfhqf-1225813827425 beautiful young woman with piercing dark eyes]].

** Same goes for [[http://hitlercbs.weebly.com/uploads/1/9/5/3/19533771/3933648.jpg?328 Helene Hanfstaengl]], who was plain-looking in life and nowhere near the looks of [[https://68.media.tumblr.com/tumblr_mb4nv8mMH21r7yduto1_500.png Julianne Marguiles]].
** Ernst Rohm is played by Creator/PeterStormare in the movie, but in reality he was far closer to the fat, balding background character who serves as his lieutenant-and later, Hitlers' SS bodyguard-in the flick.

* In ''WesternAnimation/TheFairlyOddparents'', when Timmy wants to prove that Dale Dimm was the founder of Dimmsdale, he wishes himself back 300 years ago, and meets witch hunter, Alden Bitterroot. However, unlike the picture Timmy is holding that shows Alden as a handsome muscular hero, the real Alden looks and acts exactly like Mr. Crocker.

* UsefulNotes/CleopatraVII: [[http://upload.wikimedia.org/wikipedia/commons/thumb/3/3e/Kleopatra-VII.-Altes-Museum-Berlin1.jpg/452px-Kleopatra-VII.-Altes-Museum-Berlin1.jpg Cleopatra]] was subject to this even in her own day. The legend of her beauty comes partially from [[UsefulNotes/{{Augustus}} Octavian]]'s propaganda that Marc Antony had been bewitched by her. Over the years, Cleopatra is typically portrayed as each generation's version of their ideal beauty. She's sometimes even given a RaceLift, despite the fact that she was of Macedonian descent. However, portraits of her give her a noticeably large nose; there is even an oft-repeated famous quip about what a long nose Cleo had. Plutarch describes her as not particularly attractive, but with a beautiful voice and charming personality. Creator/{{Cicero}} also downplays her appearance, though he is a biased source. If we go by her sculpture, she looked [[http://www.vocidicitta.it/wp-content/uploads/2015/11/Ricostruzione-volto-di-Cleopatra.jpg something like this]]. In oher words, far from ugly, but definitely not the supermodel most media like to portray her as.

Added DiffLines:

* ''Film/{{Frida}}'': Salma Hayek portrayed artist [[https://s-media-cache-ak0.pinimg.com/originals/2b/6b/e8/2b6be8d9e92b4e3343e7f966ff25e878.jpg Frida Kahlo]] and Alfred Molina played her husband, Diego Rivera. Somewhat subverted in that Frida Kahlo's well-known "unibrow" was part of Hayek's makeup, and Molina wore a fat suit to portray the overweight Rivera.
