It takes an incredible amount of drive, steady focus, and intelligence to become the CEO of a company. Traditionally, women have to work three times as hard as men to get anywhere near a CEO position. According to the List of women CEOs of Fortune 500 companies on Wikipedia, as of October 16, 2015, women held only 4.4% CEO positions at their companies. How many women CEOs, on and off that list, are beautiful as well as highly intelligent? This article will introduce you to 11 female CEOs that are both stunning and intellectual knockouts!

1 Jesse Draper – Jesse Draper is a beautiful former actress, talk show host, writer, and producer of the Valley Girl Talk Show. After interviewing hundreds of CEOs for the show, Jesse, a daughter of a venture capitalist, started investing in tech startups. Her background as a 4th generation entrepreneur helped her to become a CEO, investing in such startups as the design firm of Laurel & Wolf, Carbon38, Sugarfina, and Move Loot.

Though you may think they usually have to be perfectly in shape just to get into Hollywood in the first place, this often isn’t the case. There are many celebrities who either wanted to improve an already fit physique or to go from overweight to fit. Whatever the motivation, some of these stars have been very impressive in their body transformations. The following are 13 examples:

1. Joe Manganiello
Joe was never actually in poor shape when he was in the public eye, but he has taken it to a whole new level. When he took on the part of the werewolf Alcide in True Blood, he amped up his workout routine and became really big and muscular, shedding a lot of fat as well. His abs alone have been transformed in a huge way, much more defined and shredded than they were before. He had always wanted to be big and muscular, so he decided to restrict his calorie intake significantly. Manganiello also adhered to a strict workout routine, focusing on chest and legs on Monday and Thursday, zeroing in on shoulders and biceps on Tuesday and Friday, and doing his back and triceps on Wednesday and Saturday. He also made sure to do 45 minutes of daliy cardio in the mornings.

18 year old Kylie. 26 year old Tyga. They’ve allegedly been hooking up since Kylie was wayyy underage. Then they allegedly broke up and got back together. Blah. Blah. Blah. I personally don’t know what they were doing prior to her 18th birthday, but now according to Kylie, the two are “hanging out, living life.” And that’s cool with me, but I think since so many of you still have an issue with this, I’ll give you 15 other guys who you may like better…so let’s play. Ready. Set. Go.

Asking anyone about weight is as equally offensive as asking them their age…thus the reason I wouldn’t ask anyone that. Lol. But, these celebs have been pretty forthcoming. Some are a little shocking and some not so much. First up: Jeffrey Dean Morgan, the actor is very attractive and fit, but he admitted he went down from 175 lbs to 130 lbs to play a character with tuberculosis on the History Channel’s “Texas Rising.”

Growing up these days, I feel like the teenagers totally miss the “ugly duckling phase.” Look at the Jenners for example, they were practically babies when we were introduced to them on “Keeping Up With the Kardashians,” and then they were fashion mavens and a super model. Even kids who aren’t famous, with social media and YouTube tutorials they’re highlighting and contouring by 14 and know how to do their own hair extensions maybe even earlier than that. Well, I for one had no access to those things and many of these celebrities didn’t either.So the ugly duckling phase was in full effect. Lol.But that doesn’t mean theydidn’t catch up and grow into major hotties! First up, Kate Hudson. Baby pic is just a baby pic. A crying, drooling baby. But the after pic. HELLO BLONDE BOMBSHELL!

You know how candid pictures are. Well, I know how they are to me. Lol. I love them about 90% of the time. When you’re laughing with a friend or playing in your hair and someone captures your picture from across the room, it’s cute….until it’s not. When that cute candid smile isn’t so much of a smile and it’s you digging in your nose (or looking like you are), laughing too hard, a sneeze. All bad. But when it’s you, me, the average folk of the world, we have little to no worries but when you’re Ellen Degeneres (pictured above) laughing and standing next to your wife (Portia De Rossi) and it looks like you’re staring right down into Katy Perry’s boobs, it’s just odd like the rest of these AWKWARDLY TIMED PICS. Keep clicking to catch the rest.

Okay so you’re a celebrity. You have access to the best of the best. Stylists. Designer goods. Makeup artists on standby…so does that mean you should ALWAYS look perfect?…some may say yes; well I say NO! Yes, they’re rich (in some cases they aren’t) and famous, but first and foremost, they’re human. I’m just happy no one is taking pictures of me looking my worst and publishing them all over the internet. How would you feel?…but since the pics are up, there’s no one saying we can’t look at them. Lol. First up Lisa Rinna. Lisa has been in the business for years. She’s an actress who most recently transitioned to reality TV on Bravo’s Real Housewives of Beverly Hills. Lisa is 52 years old…so yes the picture shows a few blotchy skin areas. And it’s VERY close up so it’s not the greatest. But for 52..rock it girl!

Nose job. Rhinoplasty. Altering the nose you were born with… Whatever you want to call it…being someone who has had a nose job, trust me not only do I know how much of a painful surgery it is, I also understand how much of a game changer a nose job is. My surgeon even said, “A nose job is one of the only surgeries that can immediately take you from a 5 to a 10 (knockout)in no time.” Lol. The thing with nose jobs though, when they say they’re game changers, they really are. It can be REALLY good or REALLY bad. And once it’s been done once, doing it over and over again makes it even worse. Let me start by saying I don’t think anyone “needs” a nose job. It’s cosmetic, but it can and will improve your looks IF done right. First up, Courtney Love. GREAT NOSE JOB!!! Courtney says, “I was an actress in the ’80s but, well, let’s just be real, I had a really big nose. That schnoz was not taking me anywhere but radio. “Yeah, I got my nose fixed…in six months, the whole world changed. It just happenedI was 20 when I did it.”
