HAMBURG - West Germans believe they are physically attractive while people in eastern Germany tend to feel unattractive, according to a new opinion survey.

More than 60 percent of western German respondents in the poll by Forsa Institute said they are satisfied with their physical appearance. In eastern Germany, however, only 48 percent are content with the way they look.

One out of every eight eastern Germans went so far as to say their bad looks have been a hindrance in seeking jobs and prospective spouses. In western Germany, in contrast, only 17 percent feel they look that bad.

The survey of 1,001 people nationwide in Germany revealed that fashion models Heidi Klum and Claudia Schiffer are considered the most beautiful German women.

Nearly 15 percent of German men were diplomatic enough to say that their own wives or fiancees are the fairest in the land.

Yet only 2 percent of German women said the same about the men in their lives.
