We all have our weaknesses. Some of us panic, some of us have accepted the fact that nobody is perfect. In the world we live in, the problem with perfection is that usually magazines are portraying celebrities as perfect people. In reality, that is far from the truth. Celebrities actually have quite the few imperfections. So, without further a do, let’s take a look at those imperfections. If they can accept them, I am sure all of us can accept a scar here or there.
1. Tony Iommi is missing his fingertips
Tommy lost the tips on his ring and middle finger at the young age of 17. At that point, he was considering to leave the industry, and throw the guitar somewhere in the addict. Luckily for us, he has continued his career, despite a few imperfections to his hand. Without Tommy, we would never have had Black Sabbath, one of the iconic heavy metal bands.
2. Padma Lakshmi has a scar on the right arm
Some would consider hiding the scar from cameras, especially since it is very much doable with some dress. But Padma doesn’t hide the scar she got when she was 14. She was involved in a car crash. As a result of the crash, she got a seven-inch scar on her right arm to serve as a reminder. She wrote an essay for US Vogue in 2001 detailing the accident.
3. Randy Foye’s organs are reversed.

But not for Randy Foye, an NBA player born with a condition that is known as “situs inversus” in medical terms. In the United States, one out of 10,000 people is born with reversed organs, and for Foye, that means his heart is in the right side of his body.

7. Gerard Butler’s ears are not the same size.

10. Paris Hilton has a lazy eye
If you look closely, you’ll notice that Paris Hilton is never looking at the exact same spot. Sometimes strabismus is obvious, and sometimes it isn’t. Symmetry is not a big fan of celebrities, and Paris Hilton is just one of the many victims. She tries to hide it from time to time, but it is just easy to spot once you know what to look for.
11. Taye Diggs has extra fingers.
