Everyone loves a pretty smile, but in Hollywood there are so many “perfect teeth” with blinding white veneers that celebrities with imperfect teeth do set themselves apart.
Most people in the entertainment industry have million dollar smiles. Let’s check out a few stars that have the moolah to have perfect teeth but are happy with their less-than-perfect chompers.
“True Blood” actress Anna Paquin, who plays the role of Sookie Stackhouse on the HBO show, never felt the need to fix the gap in her teeth. The actress admits she finds it “rude when someone asks me why I never fixed the gap in my teeth!”
The actress opened up about her insecurities when growing up, stating, “Interestingly enough, I don’t really care about my teeth, but I think any woman on this planet could say, ‘I wish my ass was smaller, my arms were thinner and I had green eyes not brown.”
“I think anyone is as critical as they have the energy to self-obsess, but I also know as an actress you are more limited if you interfere with your looks. If you have a whole bunch of work done with your teeth and your face and your boobs then you’re only going to play modern people. That’s a big choice to make. Very limiting.”
Well, the gap certainly hasn’t affected Paquin’s career!
“Boardwalk Empire” star Steve Buscemi’s distinctive teeth may not be gorgeous, but they do set him apart in Hollywood.
Buscemi, who plays Nucky Thompson on the HBO show, claimed he’d never have gotten work in Hollywood if he had changed his smile. He said, “I’ve had dentists who have wanted to help me out, but I say, ‘You know, I won’t work again if you fix my teeth”.
Madonna certainly has the money to have her teeth fixed, but never has wanted to fix the little gap in her two front teeth.
She shot a cover for Glamour magazine back in the 90s and they wanted to cover up the gap. The singer was so pissed that when they named her Woman of the Year, she refused the honor. Don’t mess with Madge!
Singer Jewel is known for her beautiful voice and her imperfect teeth.
She admits that leaving her natural teeth actually helped land her a job over actresses with million dollar smiles. She said, “I asked [the director of "Ride With the Devil"], ‘Why me? You could’ve had anyone you wanted. And he said, ‘You have period teeth,’” she said. “So I got the job because I was the only actress in Hollywood who hadn’t gotten her teeth fixed!”
French model and the former partner of Johnny Depp is another celebrity with a big gap in her teeth. Honestly, we find her much more attractive when she smiles without showing her teeth.
Awesome actor Morgan Freeman has pretty bad teeth. They are crooked but the worst part has to be the stains.
Will Ferrell’s upper teeth look normal, but his bottom teeth are very crooked and reminds us a bit of a pekingese dog. He is hilarious and his jacked up teeth add to his charm.
Rock chick Avril Lavigne has a fang tooth that protrudes but gives her a cute vampire look.
“Jar of Hearts” singer Christina Perri’s bottom teeth are a bit whacky but she really only shows those when she is singing.
“Napoleon Dynamite” star John Heder has some large chompers, but it suited that role perfectly! It appears his smile is very “gummy” too.
Honestly, in a land filled with porcelain veneer horse-teeth…it’s refreshing to see some “real” people. What do you think?
