10 Celebrities Who Have Special Body Features We Hadn’t Noticed Before

year ago

It’s common for people to have something about themselves that they perceive as unusual or imperfect, even though it’s those individual quirks that make us unique and can be a source of strength and resilience. When it comes to celebrities, they often seem flawless on screen but the truth is they too have distinct features. We found some famous examples that totally prove that these characteristics are nothing to worry about.

When Tina Fey was 5 years old, she was attacked. A man cut her face with a knife. Tina has had a scar on her face ever since then.

Henry Cavill

Henry Cavill, best known for his leading roles in the Superman franchise and The Witcher TV show, sometimes wears contact lenses to understand characters better. However, he willingly poses on the red carpet, demonstrating one of his distinguishing features: partial heterochromia. Both of his eyes are blue, but there is a small brown segment in his left eye, which only adds to the actor’s popularity.

Natalie Dormer has facial nerve palsy which she got during birth. The damage is barely noticeable when the actress is smiling, but it can be seen when her face is relaxed. However, most viewers don’t notice it because experienced makeup artists can hide this imperfection.

Sandra Bullock

Sandra Bullock has a scar above her left eye, which she got in childhood. The future popular actress was having fun at a lake when she slipped and hit her face on a stone. As a result, Sandra ended up with a cut above her eye, which later turned into a scar.

Jane Seymour

This actress, known for her role as one of James Bond’s girlfriends, was born with heterochromia — her eyes are different colors.

Padma Lakshmi


The popular American host often wears dresses with short sleeves and that’s when we can see the scar on her right arm that is half an inch wide and 7 inches long. Padma got it at the age of 14, when she got into a car accident. She doesn’t consider this detail of her appearance an imperfection. She sees her body as her life’s map, where the most important moments and turning points have been etched.

Kate Moss

As strange as it may seem, one of the most popular catwalk models has always been seriously worried because she has crooked legs. That’s why Kate hardly ever wears mid-length clothing that can highlight this imperfection.

Catherine Zeta-Jones

If you’ve never looked closely at the actress’ neck, you have probably never noticed a small scar in her jugular cavity. Catherine got it in her childhood when she had to get tracheotomy due to an illness. Doctors had to insert a tube into her throat so that she could breathe. Luckily, this all stayed in the past and now it’s only a tiny, slightly noticeable scar that reminds her of that incident.

Jeremy Renner

Recently Jeremy Renner’s fans have noticed that the actor has big nail plates. And though this fact is just a small detail, it’s still hard to stop looking at his hands once you know this.

Kylie Jenner

Although for some people, scars on a visible part of the body present a problem, Kylie Jenner refers to hers as a “loyal friend.”

“I remember that I couldn’t get out, and I had to climb up to get over the gate. I fell, and the gate came down on top of me and cut my leg. It’s just a little scar now, but it reminds me of a funny childhood memory and how far I’ve come since then.” Kylie’s reflection on her scar highlights the importance of embracing one’s unique qualities.
