Who says you need to be perfect to be a star? Although celebs must project an air of perfection today, no one in the world is indeed perfect. Even if you have an international reputation, you own some physical flaws like crooked teeth. While no one can deny that having straight teeth is a great thing to aspire to, a perfect smile isn’t for everyone. In Hollywood, there are tons of celebrities with horrible teeth that are gapped or crooked. Because of them, plenty of stars are not willing to show off their less-than-perfect smiles, they even have had their smiles transformed by orthodontics and dentistry and made more beautiful.
Despite working in Hollywood, which is obsessed with picture-perfect images, many celebs choose to stay true to their own beauty standards and it seems to be a breath of fresh air. Some share that their teeth gaps or misaligned chompers helped them land more roles.
Below are some famous people who embrace imperfect smiles.
