Celebrities Who Have Physical Deformities
They are popular, rich and attractive; it seems that celebs have it all. However, only they know how high is the price they have to pay for meeting often unrealistic expectations in terms of perfection and extremely high standards of physical appearance.
Anyway, despite such an irrational focus on the looks, there are several stars with physical deformities who have nevertheless succeeded in gaining fame and even celebrating anomalies.
It is often quite encouraging to see how open these celebrities have been about their supposed shortcomings, bravely flaunting their differences in public.
Here is a list of the famous who resolutely fly in the face of perfection.
1. Milo Ventimiglia
Once one of the favorite teenage heartthrobs, Milo Ventimiglia is perhaps best-known to most people as nurse superhero Peter Petrelli from the NBC TV series “Heroes”.
A very handsome man of Italian origin, Milo actually has a lower lip that is always limp. The reason for this is that, at the time of Milo’s birth, all the nerve endings on the left side of his mouth had been dead.
The condition is popularly known as having a “crooked” mouth. However, this became a blessing in disguise, since it was eventually the cause of his big break, as he was chosen to act alongside great Sylvester Stallone in “Rocky Balboa”, as the boxer’s son.
Due to his condition, the actor was able to talk in a manner akin to that of famous Stallone, thus being perfect for the role of his son.
