I was just yesterday talking to a gorgeous chemist. I just wanted to brag, she's my ex-girlfriend.
It's about believability though. If you want to sell someone as being a scientist in a movie, having them be fit or good-looking doesn't help. I don't see Dwayne Johnson being cast as a scientist either. I'm not counting Jumanji.

What about Dolph Lundgren, eh? He IS a scientist (masters in chemistry).

Yes but I don't believe he's ever been cast as one.

To be fair, science doesn't generally attract immensely good looking men or women. Those types tend to skate on their looks for quite a while until age catches up with them.
And this is based on? Certainly not my experience that’s for sure.

I married the most gorgeous scientist ever.

I have met plenty of hot scientists.
Blatant bragging - I'm insanely jealous. Having said that youngest offspring is about to propose to a scientist - inappropriate to comment on the looks of future daughter in law though. :)

Well, I've only met them - it's not like I dated them or anything.
My nephew's Canadian girlfriend (who is a phlebotomist/blood scientist) is quite nice looking, lucky nephew! She's an example of 'hot scientist'.

A work colleague (and friend) married a Canadian scientist.

It’s the only way to survive in Scotland. Anyhow. Britain, Police State?
Well you're a scientist, Scargie has an MA in criminology and then there's Max. The three of you could set up a firm to investigate Cold Cases, if you believe police dramas there's a lot of outsourcing in that area.
