JACKSONVILLE, Fla. -- Have you ever felt your looks have affected your life? A new book called, "Beauty Pays" claims ugly people just have it tougher.
University of Texas economy professor and author Daniel Hamermesh said, ugly people could make $230,000 less over their lifetime, versus their better looking peers. He said if a majority considers someone to be ugly, then, he probably is.
But some people take issue with the book. Rina Stermilla said, "I definitely don't agree with it."
Stermilla is a financial planner in Jacksonville. She said in her business, looks don't have anything to do with money. "The ugliest ones have way more money than the pretty ones."
