Quote: Jerry Hall genetics

There was a really stupid article in the Times (UK) yesterday: “Women are getting more beautiful”. You know I don’t say that lightly. But I had to quote what passes for a demonstration of heritability these days:

The heritability of attractiveness is widely accepted. When Elizabeth Jagger became a model, her mother, the former model Jerry Hall, said: Its in her genes.

Wouldn’t it make life easier if we could just rely on celebrities for all these things? Er, maybe not….
