We often think that celebs are perfect, as they always look perfect on-screen and at all the red carpet events. But this could not be further from the truth.
This article can make us feel better about ourselves, as we will proceed to highlight flaws that some celebrities may also have and we’ll be pointing out the things on their bodies that are extremely weird.
We have everything from broken fingers that have healed incorrectly to clubbed thumbs and webbed feet.
And if you’d like to find out who has what, all you need to do is keep reading.
Eccentric pop singer Ke$ha has a reputation for immersing herself in the weird, but it turns out she was born with a pretty strange feature too. You see, Ke$ha was born with a tail, albeit a very short one.
The singer has said that it was a quarter of an inch long and that it was “chopped off” when she was very young and the singer even went on to express her sadness about losing it.
Seal’s Facial Scars
Lots of people have wondered about Seal’s facial scars, mainly because they’re so prominent. They were caused because of discoid lupus- a disease known to affect the face, scalp and neck.
He revealed that he suffered from the sickness as a teen and that the disease also affected his scalp; it’s the reason why he’s bald.
But the ‘Kiss From a Rose’ singer has been in remission from the disease for years.
Unfortunately, the scars have remained.
Angelina Jolie’s Knobbly Knees
Angelina Jolie, one of the most beautiful women in Hollywood, has a body part that really sticks out; and it’s none other than her knees. At one point, when the actress was exceptionally skinny, her knees stuck out and what people have said was “almost right angles to her shins.”
Admittedly, the appearance of her knees does depend on her weight; when she’s on her thinner side, they’re much more apparent.
Jennifer Garner’s Overlapping Pinky Toe
Jennifer Garner’s life always looks perfect, even while her ex-husband was going through a relapse. But she isn’t perfect- as she has an overlapping pinky toe on her right foot.
This flaw, however, hasn’t stopped the actress from walking properly, dancing the night away in heels or playing huge action roles as she has in the movie Elektra.
Denzel Washington’s 45-degree Pinky Finger
Action actor Denzel Washington wasn’t born with a weird body part, but he got one along the way.
You see, Denzel has a finger (the pinky one) which is now permanently at a 45-degree angle, all because he broke it as a child.
What happened is that Denzel injured that finger when he was young and never sought medical attention to have it fixed.
As a result, it healed at a disjointed angle and it is now permanently bent.
Kate Bosworth Heterochromia Iridis
Actress Kate Bosworth has a rare condition which has caused her to have different coloured eyes. Scientifically called heterochromia iridis. That is the reason behind the fact that the actress has one eye which is brown and another that is blue.
The reason viewers have never noticed it before is that she wears contacts during filming and sometimes even wears them on the red carpet.
Mark Wahlberg’s Third Nipple
Mark Wahlberg’s third nipple is just as well-known as he is and that’s because the Max Payne actor is quite proud of this weird body part.
When asked whether he’d be getting it lasered off or surgically removed, he had this to say, “I won’t get that thing removed. It’s my prized possession.”
Karolina Kurkova’s Missing Belly Button
Karolina Kurkova is a model best known for her status as one of the Victoria’s Secret Angels.
What’s strange about Karolina is that she has no belly button. It was quite a shock because she’s been shown to have one in her pictures. But it turns out those were photoshopped on. Karolina had an operation when she was very young, according to her representative, and it’s likely that it was for an umbilical hernia- an abnormal bulge that can be felt or seen at the belly button.
The surgery may have been what distorted the look of her belly button.
Andy Garcia’s Conjoined Twin
Andy Garcia is a popular actor and director whose works include The Godfather III. But what isn’t so well-known is that Andy was born with an underdeveloped conjoined twin on his shoulder. Wow right?
The scientific name for it is called heteropagus and it’s a condition where the well-formed twin has a sibling who hasn’t formed completely.
Garcia has said that his twin was about the size of a softball and it was surgically removed shortly after he was born.
Taye Diggs’ Twelve Fingers
When actor Taye Diggs was younger, he had an extra finger on each of his hands. When he was older, he had them surgically removed and has the scars to prove his weird feature.
When he appeared on the TV show, The Talk, he explained that he had been born with twelve fingers. He even joked that they “could’ve been really handy.”
Ashton Kutcher’s Slightly-Webbed Feet
Ashton Kutcher is one of the silliest, yet most successful actors in Hollywood, but he’s also prettily weird. Or at least one of his feet are.
And that’s because of his toes on one of his feet are webbed. The condition is known as syndactyly of the feet and usually happens between toe number two and three.
It has no health risks and requires no treatment, but the toes can be separated, depending on how severe the condition presents itself.
The star is pretty proud of his special feet, though, and has shown them off a time or two to the public.
Gerard Butler’s Unusual Ear
300 star, Gerard Butler, has beautiful facial features, but one of his ears is a bit wonky. If you’re one of those people who have never noticed it, don’t feel bad, because the star himself didn’t even realize it until 2003, when he was already 33 years old.
In pictures where the actor has his hair cropped short, it can be noticed that his left ear sticks out a lot more than the right one.
And it’s because he had a surgery to save his hearing when he was a child.
Oprah’s Extra Toe
For many years, people have been speculating that Oprah, the Queen of television, has an extra toe. Oprah herself has never confirmed or denied this, but pictures of her foot have surfaced.
Unfortunately, none of them are clear enough to confirm whether all this speculation it’s true or not, but by the looks of it, it could very easily be true; the Queen has more than five toes on each foot.
Megan Fox’s Clubbed Thumbs
Transformers actress, Megan Fox, was born with brachydactyly- a condition in which the bones in some fingers and toes are much shorter than average.
Well, the condition didn’t affect all the star’s digits, as it is only her two thumbs that are clubbed.
Megan has admitted that she isn’t 100% comfortable with her thumbs, but she is learning to love them no matter how small they are.
Lily Allen’s Third Nipple
Singer Lily Allen isn’t the most mainstream artist, so it’s pretty fitting that she’d have a strange body part.
She, like many other celebrities, has an extra nipple, and she loves showing it off. Lily has been known to whip it out when people ask about it and has even done so on television.
The singer’s third nipple is located on the left side of her body, near her armpit.
Daryl Hannah’s Missing Half Finger
Actress and activist Daryl Hannah wasn’t one of those people born with a weird body part. However, she managed to lose a body part along the way.
When the actress was young, she was involved in an accident that included her grandmother’s mobility stairlift. It ended up shaving off about half of her left index finger.
But the star has taken it like a trooper, stating that everything happens for a reason, as her experience of losing a finger only made her more compassionate towards others.
Elizabeth Taylor’s Double Layer of Eyelashes
Elizabeth Taylor’s thick eyelashes are actually the result of a genetic mutation. Beyond her exotic violet-coloured eyes, the actress was born with a double row of eyelashes.
Medically known as distichiasis, this extra row is a rare disorder which doesn’t always grow as cleanly, neatly and unbothersome as Elizabeth’s was. Lucky her!
Forest Whitaker’s Lazy Eye
Forest Whitaker is an Academy Award and Golden Globe Award winner who has starred in well-over eighty films, but one of the things people first notice about him is his lazy eye.
This eye is a hereditary condition that the star was born with. And while he has said that he is considering getting surgery to have it fixed, he has maintained that look, because it affects his vision and not for cosmetic purposes.
Stephen Colbert’s Strange Ear
Stephen Colbert is known for his sense of humour, but he also isn’t shy about his weird body part- his ear. Apparently, there was a problem with his right ear when he was younger- sources say it was a small tumour.
Colbert explained that whatever was inside his ear had to be scooped out during the operation and resulted in him losing hearing in that ear. The operation also left it floppy; he’s been known to roll it into itself and pop it back out for fun.
Gemma Arterton’s Extra Fingers
Gemma Arterton is best known for her role as a Bond Girl in Quantum of Solace, but it’s also a well-known fact that she’s polydactyl- she has two extra fingers, one on each hand.
What isn’t so well-known is that those extra digits run in her family.
Her grandfather and father had it and so did she. The actress had the extra fingers removed when she was younger because “they didn’t have a bone in them.” She has said, however, that she was proud of her family trait.
