    No benefit of being beautiful

    I have a problem regarding my sentences. I am not sure if they sound natural. Would you please help me and correct my mistakes?

    John told Anna that she was beautiful. She answered him she had no benefit of being beautiful whatsoever.

    Or maybe I should write: "...she had no benefit of her beauty whatsoever."

    Re: No benefit of being beautiful

    They're both unnatural. You could say "She replied saying that she derived no benefit whatsoever from being beautiful".
    Remember - if you don't use correct capitalisation, punctuation and spacing, anything you write will be incorrect.
