The ugly guy / hot wife phenomenon is a favorite trope of sitcoms (King of Queens, Married with Children, umm... Family Guy?), but does it happen in real life? Oh yes. Several ugly men have had the great fortune of marrying supermodels. Some of these famous men are rich entrepreneurs while others are successful film directors, musicians, and artists. One less than attractive man married a famous model who was 63 years his junior.

Who is the most famous ugly guy who married a supermodel? Poor Seal has distinctive scars on his face that resulted from a type of lupus, but he married a supermodel anyway. The “Kiss From a Rose” singer was married to Victoria's Secret model and Project Runway host Heidi Klum from 2005 until 2012. The couple has three children together, and Seal also adopted Klum's daughter, Leni, from a previous relationship. 

Businessman J. Howard Marshall was married to Guess model Anna Nicole Smith from 1994 until his death in 1995. At the time of their wedding, Marshall was 89 years old and Smith was 26.
