A few times, all recently with minor exceptions.

I've also been called hideous by total strangers before, so it makes me feel very confused to be honest. I never know how to respond, as it feels as though if I accept the compliment I'll look big-headed or silly because I always feel it's just said out of pity, or that I'm overly negative and distrustful if I question them over what they're saying.

The best thing, I think, is for me to politely say thank you and stop myself from making it awkward by biting my lip and refraining from calling them crazy or liars.
