Resting Bitch Face, or RBF, is a condition (or skill!) that delivers a very specific message. "I dare you to not disappoint me... oh, too late." From Anna Wintour's dissatisfied glare to Donald Trump's signature scowl, this is a list of the best RBFs out there.
To be fair, not all celebrities with resting bitch face are actually bitches. Some were just born that way. Although other bitchy celebrities (ahem, Simon Cowell) probably developed their bitchy resting face after years of frowning at the world around them.
Celebrity RBF could also be caused by the paparazzi, who are constantly hounding these poor famous people for photos. Would you smile all the time if there was constantly a camera in your face? Probably not! So maybe we should cut these sour stars some slack. And then there are the frown-y politicians, who may just be stressed about the state of the country (and/or having to go toe-to-toe with the Donald).Is your favorite celebrity, actor, politician, or fictional character with resting bitchface on this list? Please add any you feel I've missed, and vote for the man, woman, or character who does it best!
