“I sincerely. believe. in the general existence of moral instinct. I think it the brightest gem with which the human character is studded, and the want of it as more degrading than the most hideous of the bodily deformities.” ~ Thomas Jefferson
If you thought the celebrities you admire are blessed with flawless bodies and perfect figure then better have a look at this. This post will prove the celebrities are also humans, who are born with natural ailments or deformities caused post injuries. While some take pride in their flaws, others manage to hide their defects from the public eye.
I have rounded up some of the top Hollywood celebrities, who have shockingly physical deformations that have hardly hindered them from rising to fame.
Top 10 Hollywood celebrities with deformities. Do have a look!
Kate Hudson and Halle Berry with sixth toe
These two are among the most desirable actresses in Hollywood. While one (Halle Berry) is Academy Awards winner, the other is the Golden Globes Awards winner. While Halle has earned herself a star at the Hollywood Walk of Fame, Kate is devastatingly beautiful and mainly popular for her charm.
When both thee actresses grace the red carpet, they are the serene beauties, who could easily give others a run for their looks.
Can you keep a secret?
After all no human is perfect. This is the ultimate cruel truth. Both these Hollywood celebs have a sixth toe on one of their foots. While Halle has a 6th toe on her right foot, Kate has it on her left foot.
Being born with 11 or more fingers is a condition medically known as Polydactyly. This extra digit usually appears as a soft tissue without any joints. This extra finger is either located near the little finger or thumb. This toe is usually the result of a genetic mutation, occurring one in every 500 births.
Maria Sharapova’s sixth toe
The tennis ace sensation Maria Sharapova has an extra on each foot, thereby making up to 12 fingers. Another tennis sensation Anna Kournikova has also got two extra toes on her feet, thereby joining this bandwagon.
Tina Fey’s scar on face
The reason being Tina always asks her cameraman to capture the right side of her face because she has a snake like scar running from her cheek bone to underneath lower lips. Since the scar is light in shade, it is easily concealed by makeup.
Only her close-up photos make this scar look more visible. The scar is because of some traumatic childhood slashing, which Tina hardly discusses before the media.
When she was interviewed by the New York Times in 2001 and was asked about the scar, she had this to reply,
“It’s a childhood injury that was kind of grim. And it kind of bums my parents out for me to talk about it.”
However, her husband Jeff Richmond had revealed before Vanity fair in 2008 that when she was in the front yard of her house, somebody came and slashed her cheek, which she assumed to be marked with a pen.
Padma Lakshmi’s scar on right arm
If you thought in order to be a super model, your skin has to be flawless then better have a look at India’s first supermodel, who walked the international runway – Padma Lakshmi.
Padma, who is probably best known for her sexy Carl’s Jr. commercial, where she seduces a burger and licks BBQ sauce off her thigh in Hollywood and for her relationships, loves to flaunt her flaw unlike other actresses, who either shy way from stating the reason or try hard to hide it.
Padma’s scar, which is 7″ long and present between her right elbow and shoulder, is as famous as she is. In 1984, when she was 14 and returning from a temple in Malibu with her mother, her car met with an accident due to which she was left with a fractured right hip and shattered upper right arm. However, Padma considers this to be oddly one of the most beautiful memories in her life, as she still remembers the orange flash and refers that car crash as an exhilarating hallucination, an unbelievable moment.
“I love it because it makes me a person who has an interesting past, and it reminds me that I can survive any pain,” she had recently stated in an interview.
Megan Fox clubbed thumb
If I tell you even Megan Fox has got deformity, anyone will hardly believe me because this sex bomb is freakin’ hot, who has a to-die for figure millions of girls around there are aspiring for.
The moment your notice would slip from her face and body to her thumb, you’ll immediately realize what I’m talking about. Her fingers are not something that paparazzi likes to click about (except for the intention) to expose her physical defect). Fox has clubbed thumbs, a condition medically known as Brachydactyly type D, which is Greek for “short finger.” It is a genetic condition where the bone at the end of the thumb grows shorter in comparison to the rest of the fingers, thereby leaving the thumb short, stubby, and bulbous.
Back in India, the yester-year actress Madhubala also had the same condition, which was however overlooked because of her irresistible beauty.
Karolina Kurkova’s missing belly button
Even angels have flaws! The supermodel is Victoria’s Secret Angel, an in-demand runway model and was recently named E! Entertainment’s World’s Sexiest Woman. And when we talk about Victoria Secret’s angels, we all imagine sexy figures and flawless bodies. Karolina’s missing belly button is actually one of her vital sexy assets which she enjoys flaunting it.
As per doctors, when she was infant, Karolina suffered from an umbilical hernia, which occurs when part of the intestine protrudes through a weak spot in the abdominal muscles. While in some cases, this protrusion heals naturally, other children undergo surgery after 4.
For bikini and lingerie photo shoots, a digital naval is added to her photos to make her figure look perfect.
Jennifer Garner’s foot
The 40-year old actress suffers from brachymetatarsia, a condition in which one of the phallanx bones in the foot is shorter than the next one.
Elizabeth Taylor’s double row of eyelashes
Now what can I say? When everyone is running after fake eye lashes, Hollywood’s Cleopatra was born with double row of eyelashes around her eyes. As she was born with a genetic mutation at the FOXC2 gene at birth, she had two rows of eyelashes, which were actually a boon for her ethereal beauty. Now it’s up to you to call it as a ‘flaw’ or ‘boon’.
Kate Bosworth with different eye colors
Do you remember Mystique character from X-Men played by Jennifer Lawrence? She had two different eye colors. Well, that was reel story and here is a real story of celebs with different eye colors, one of them being the beautiful Kate Bosworth. May be next to Elizabeth Taylor, Kate is blessed with the best flaw ever in terms of beauty. While her left eye is blue in color, her right eye is honey brown.
