In the modern world, appearance is no longer as important as it used to be. Modeling agencies pay more and more attention to unique rather than “ideal” people, and actors and actresses are selected solely for their talent.
And the beginning of this positive trend, in a sense, was set by the celebrities we want to talk about in our article. They managed to outflank the competition and succeed, even in the face of defects in appearance and health problems. Now millions of other "special" people follow their example and try their hand in areas in which they seem to have no place.
Elizabeth Taylor - distichiasis
Elizabeth Taylor's lavender eyes are not photoshopped, but the consequences of a rare genetic mutation. This shade of the iris is the result of a mixture of shades of red and blue. Physicians often attribute purple eyes to one of the symptoms of Alexandria syndrome.
In addition, Elizabeth Taylor also had distichiasis. This is a developmental anomaly in which an additional row of eyelashes appears on the eyes while the first is growing normally. Perhaps it was thanks to these features that the “queen of Hollywood” was able to conquer so many viewers.
Lily Allen - third nipple on the breast
Once on the air of a popular British TV show, singer Lily Allen made a shocking confession: from birth on the girl's left breast, not one, but two nipples at once. Naturally, Allen backed up her words with visual evidence, which caused a great resonance. Some viewers suggested that the excess formation on her chest was just a mole. But later, Lily assured that this is a real third nipple, which can even be fed to a baby.
Ashton Kutcher - fused toes
Handsome Ashton Kutcher was also born with a slight deviation, namely two fused toes on his right foot. But the actor admits that this anomaly does not bother him at all. Moreover, Kutcher does not hesitate to show his unusual fingers on various entertainment programs. Thanks to this, on the Internet you can find a huge number of photographs of the actor's fused fingers.
Winnie Harlow - Vitiligo
We have already talked about Winnie Harlow's model earlier. This girl managed to achieve recognition and success, despite congenital skin pigmentation disorders that literally made her "spotty". Because of vitiligo since childhood, Harlow was called "cow", mocked and teased her.
For a long time, the girl felt like a "black sheep" surrounded by other people, but as she grew up, she realized that her disease makes her special. Refusing to join the ranks of the humiliated and insulted, Vinnie went to conquer the modeling business, and she succeeded.
Vanessa Paradis - Diastema
Many people with diastema go to the dentist as soon as possible to eliminate annoying gaps between their teeth. But Vanessa Paradis did not do it. On the contrary, the girl proved to the whole world that even with such an obvious "drawback" it is possible to build a completely successful modeling and acting career. And also to charm the most eligible Hollywood groom, handsome Johnny Depp.
These stars once again confirm that appearance is not the most important thing in life. And if these examples are not enough for you, we suggest looking at the pictures of 12 models with non-standard beauty.
