So you noticed something weird about an actor but have never taken it upon yourself to look it up. What's up with that guy's face? You've wondered. How come she looks like that? You've said. But laziness trumps curiosity, so you've been left in the dark, until now. We went out, checked out all the stars, picking the ones that have something physically different about them, physical things we wish to help explain. We're not talking weird thumbs like Megan Fox or webbed toes like Ashton Kutcher and Dan Aykroyd. We want to look at the things everyone notices, but not many talk about. We're calling these things deformities. Probably as harsh and politically incorrect a term as we could choose, but we weren't sure how to possibly classify these all together. We're sorry for calling your things deformities. Some of these physical oddities are caused by illnesses, rare conditions or diseases, while some are from accidents. Some are hidden well by the actor or the TV shows or films they appear in and others are impossible to hide, becoming just part of who the actor is.
In spite of the term "deformities," we're not trying to be mean here. We just want to help explain how or why an actor looks the way they do. Looking like everyone else is the last thing that Hollywood wants to see from actors. The best way to get noticed is to be noticeable. And what's more noticeable than a deformity, or whatever you want to call it. As we said, looking different is a great characteristic in Hollywood, unless you’re a female, in which case you're probably going to have a hard time finding work. Sadly, that's not a joke. That's also why this list is dominated by men. Without any further delay, let's look at these very unique individuals. Here are 15 celebrities with physical deformities you noticed but never understood.
15 Seal - Scarred Face
14 Daryl Hannah, Matthew Perry & Vince Vaughn - Missing Fingertip
13 James Doohan - Missing Entire Finger
12 Gaten Matarazzo - Undeveloped Teeth
11 Patricia Heaton - No Belly Button
10 Forest Whitaker - Droopy Eye
9 Denzel Washington - Perpendicular Pinky
8 Tina Fey - Scarred Face
7 Bill Nighy - Permanently Bent Fingers
6 Elizabeth Taylor - Double Set Of Eyelashes
5 Matthew McGrory - Gigantism
4 Sylvester Stallone - Partial Mouth Paralysis
3 DJ Qualls - Attenuated Body
2 Michael Berryman - Skin Disorder
1 Marty Feldman - Bulbous Eyes
You may have thought it was prosthetics or maybe you never thought about it at all, but Marty Feldman, the comedian who played Igor in Young Frankenstein, actually had something wrong with his eyes. They were bulbous and crooked, but what caused it? Though Feldman suffered from Graves' disease, which does make one's eyes bulge, it was actually a failed surgery to treat his Graves' disease that caused Feldman's eye condition to worsen. Feldman would die in 1982 from a heart attack, potentially attributed to the five packs of cigarettes he would smoke in a day. Despite his different looks, it's been said that Feldman was considered quite attractive. Hmm. Though there were some exceptions, like the Young Frankenstein role, Feldman didn’t often use his eyes to advance his career. It's probable that it kept him noticeable and memorable, but he relied on his comic talents to land jobs not his looks.
