Celebrities are, by definition, some of the most fascinating people in the world. And sometimes, the most fascinating thing about them is their body parts!
No, not like that; get your head out of the gutter! We’re talking about celebs born with special features ranging from extra nipples to extra toes. And more often than not, celebrities go out of their way to hide these features from the world because they don’t want to seem weird.
Of course, we celebrate all things weird around here! With that in mind, let’s take a closer look at celebs with the most unusual body parts in the world.
Lily Allen’s third nipple
English singer Lily Allen has a third nipple, a condition known as polythelia. Her extra nipple is located under her left breast, and like many people with polythelia, it simply looks like a mole. However, unlike another celeb on this list who had hers removed, Allen has kept her extra nipple and likes to show it off!
Halle Berry’s extra toe
One of the most beautiful women in the world, Halle Berry is known for playing the mutant Storm in the X-Men films. But did you know she has a real-life mutation of her own?
Berry’s mutation is an extra toe. The condition is known as polydactyly, when you have an extra toe or finger. The extra digit is usually just made of soft tissue without joints and can often be removed. But we think Berry is perfect just the way she is!
Ashton Kutcher’s webbed toes
Celebs may be rich and famous, but they have one big thing in common with the rest of us. And here it is: when there is something strange or different about your body, you can either try to hide it or simply make the most of it.
Television and movie star Ashton Kutcher, for example, isn’t afraid to joke about his webbed toes. When he appeared on a British talk show, host Jonathan Ross asked Kutcher about his webbed toes. Without missing a beat, Kutcher replied “I have connected toes… They’re slightly webbed. When everything else is this good-looking, something has got to be messed up!”
His joking aside, this condition, known as syndactyly of the feet, is relatively rare but also harmless. Some who have it, like Kutcher, simply get surgery to separate their toes and they are good to go.
Jane Seymour’s mismatched eyes
Many of us dream of meeting celebs and looking them right in the eyes. But if you should do that with Jane Seymour, you’d be in for a surprise!
That is because Seymour has a rare disease known as heterochromia iridis. That simply means that she has mismatched eyes. In this case, the actor has one green eye and one brown eye. Some are born with this condition and others develop it after something happens (usually damage to the eye or damage around the eye).
Vince Vaughn’s missing thumb tip
We see movie stars on the big screen all the time. Despite that, it’s fairly easy to miss little details. For example, did you know that Vince Vaughn actually has a missing thumb tip?
This stems from a car accident Vaugn was in when he was only 17 years old. The accident took his thumb tip away but gave him something in exchange: a life-changing career choice!
Before the accident, Vaugn was a skilled water polo player, but his doctor convinced him to stop playing sports after the car wreck. So Vaugn ended up channeling his energy into acting instead and ended up becoming a world-famous actor. Compared to that, we have to say a thumb tip was a really small price to pay.
Stephen Colbert’s floppy ear
Stephen Colbert has a floppy right ear. And he isn’t afraid to tell the world about it, which is what he did while speaking with David Letterman.
Colbert had an issue with his ear as a child that required a surgical procedure. The actor and comedian described the surgery as a process where doctors had to “scoop it all out with a melon baller.” As a result, he can’t actually hear out of that ear.
He joked about that with Letterman, flicking the ear in question while saying “This is just a prop. It doesn’t work at all … It’s all gone. Nothing in here.”
Carrie Underwood’s third nipple
We know a bit more about Carrie Underwood than many other musicians because she got her start on American Idol. That show really delved into the lives of its aspiring musicians and occasionally gave us some really surprising insights!
For example, Carrie Underwood was born with a third nipple. This condition is known as polythelia, and it’s more common than you think. It’s also easy to fix. In Underwood’s case, she simply had it removed long before she was singing in front of the world.
