Marc Anthony’s Father Told Him He’s ‘Ugly’


Marc Anthony was advised to rely on his personality in life after his father branded him “ugly”.

The salsa singer’s high-profile relationships include two marriages to beauty queen Dayanara Torres and singer/actress Jennifer Lopez, and with his current wife, model Shannon de Lima, but he wasn’t always so blessed.

In an interview with Meredith Vieira, Anthony admits he is well aware his physical features haven’t always matched up with his leading ladies, saying, “My dad told me early on, ‘Son, we’re both ugly.’ I swear to God, he says it to this day. He said you work on your personality. It builds character.”

But Anthony insists the harsh reality didn’t hurt his feelings, adding, “I was born looking at his face and he was right.”

Personally, I’ve always wondered whether or not parents knew if their child was facially-challenged, but I guess this answers that question. It’s still wrong to tell them that though.
