Pietro Boselli talks about the downside of being too handsome

To ask a handsome man to explain the downside of being handsome is to set that person up for failure.

Yet physique model/math teacher Pietro Boselli rises to the occasion well, and manages to not completely cheese himself out.

“I don’t think there would be any direct disadvantage,” he says, “apart from maybe some stereotypes or the fact that people won’t necessarily focus on other aspects of your personality.”

As for judging people by their physical appearance first, he says, “We cannot help it. It’s obvious that if someone to you looks good, you’re more prone to being talkative to them or to approach them. When that happens, you overlook other things.”

As for how fellow academics have responded to his modeling career, he says: “I felt like people in academe would look down on that. Only by growing up and maturing, you will learn how to embrace every aspect of your life and see that it is amazing, that you can do things that are so different. Explore a talent that otherwise wouldn’t be explored in academe at all.”

    People tend to overlook other aspects of your personality when you’re good looking. And sometimes it can be hard to make real connections because everyone is so attracted to the physical. This guy’s smart and attractive and likely very aware that looks aren’t forever. It makes sense that he will eventually be using his degree in his professional life whether he’s modeling or not.
