Its a really sad sterotype - I blame Disney mostly these days, but its obviously a lot older.
Look at all the Bond villians too - all disfigured.

It seems we find it hard to avoid associating an ugly face with an ugly personality.
Id like to think we just start thinking these people are ugly after what we know about them - but thats not true really.

-sigh-
On the one hand, ugly by itself shouldn't be an insult - our physical appearance isnt our fault and doesnt really effect anything or matter. But then, if we have these built in associations between uglyness and negative personality traits, is it any wonder people go out of their way to try not to look ugly?
