Celebrities With Deformities

Given all the glossy magazines that feature beautiful and handsome celebrities with enviable figures, thick hair and flawless complexions, it’s hard to believe that any of them are less than perfect in real life. But like regular folks, they’re people too.

Harry Styles

The former One Direction singer has four nipples on his chest. Other celebs with three or more nipples include Academy Award-winning actress Tilda Swinton, singer-songwriter Lily Allen, actor/singer Mark Wahlberg, singer Carrie Underwood, actor Bill Paxton, and model/actress Joanna Krupa.

Vince Vaughn

This People’s Choice Award-winning actor is not only one of Hollywood’s tallest celebrities (at 6’5”) he also lost the tip of his right thumb in a car accident when he was 17.

Denzel Washington

This two-time Academy Award-winning actor injured his right pinky while playing football and it never healed properly. When his kids were young, they were terrified of it but would still ask him to show their friends how it bent 90 degrees away from his other fingers.


This Grammy award-winning singer/songwriter has facial scars that fans assumed were acne scars or scarification from African rituals. They stem from lupus erythematosus, which is an autoimmune disease that affects the face and neck.

Joaquin Phoenix

This Academy Award-nominated actor was born with a minor cleft palate that accounts for the scar on his upper lip. Unlike children with severe cleft palate conditions that are disfiguring and need surgery to fix, his condition healed in utero.

Dan Aykroyd

This Academy Award-nominated actor and Emmy Award-winning comedian/writer has webbed toes – the 2nd and 3rd toes on both feet are almost completely fused together.

Taye Diggs

This SAG Award-winning actor and singer was born with six fingers on each hand – they were surgically removed when he was young.

Daryl Hannah

This popular American actress lost the tip of her left index finger in an accident with a water pulley when she was three years old.

Matthew Perry

This Friends star lost the tip of his right middle finger when it got trapped in a door. He, like Daryl Hannah, was three years old at the time.


This singer/rapper was born with a ¼-inch-long vestigial tail that was surgically removed when she was a baby.

And believe it or not, the one “deformity” that garnered the most celeb sufferers is Heterochromia Iridis. It’s a condition where each eye is a different color than the other. Here are 15 celebs and counting:

Kate Bosworth, Jane Seymour, Kiefer Sutherland, Mila Kunis, Alice Eve, Max Scherzer, Dan Akroyd, Christopher Walken, Josh Henderson, Michael Flatley, Elizabeth Berkley, Simon Pegg, Demi Moore, Henry Cavill, Jonathan Rhys Meyers.

And why don’t you see David Bowie on this list? He didn’t suffer from the condition. He was injured as a child and his left eye became permanently dilated, making it appear a different color. Both his eyes were blue. RIP.

So the next time you see a little acne scar, think of Seal. And that time you lost a toenail? Dan Aykroyd. You’re not alone, kitten. Even stars have the same imperfections you do.
