I think you're overestimating her intelligence to begin with.

After reading through most of this thread figured this was most appropriate video. Listen to the words.

If only people would (while acknowledging physical attractiveness) work a little deeper to make themselves more beautiful holistically: (physically - what you can control, food nutrition intake, fitness through activity, exercise; mentally (your mindset / personality / what you let influence your way of perceiving the world) and spiritually (whatever higher power you may believe in or worship, nature etc... enjoy

Another thing to consider for those thinking beauty has privileges (women in particular) it can have disadvantages. See the faces of those killed by notorious serial murderers, or think devolving societal trends and the idiocracy movement, and the likely social foment it creates, and then recall the quote from a woman during wartime (I'm paraphrasing because I cannot recall where this is from) who stated "When the troops came around we all hid and wished we were old and ugly".

Another thing - Anthropologically speaking - when studies of physical attractiveness are conducted. The most beautiful ranking of faces show a composite of averages in physical features (distances between eyes, nose length etc...) to be the most attractive. Always found that interesting.
