Well, I don't think there's all too much te can do in that case. te can make them watch all his movies, but that also could lead to them disliking him even more. What te should do is, tell them that te respect their opinion, but that they also should respect yours and that they at least stop putting him down when you're around. I don't think there's really much più te can do, since everyone has a right to their opinion wether we like it o not.
Everyone does have an opinion but if he is so untalented then why was he apart of the biggest franchise ever? riddle me that "friends". as for the ugly person, he is not, if your talking about his feature's then that's fine everyone has different tastes but he is not a bad person. he's actually one of the genuine people i have ever met. He's smart, friendly, Funny, talented, has a cool accent, good looking (in my opinion). so basically he's an all around great guy. :)
