18 Rare Pics of Our Fave Celebs We Had No Idea Had Braces
Fun fact: even dogs can get braces. Today, 1 out of every 4 (human) braces-wearers is an adult, and aside from the visible improvement, straight teeth can improve our overall health. Just like us, some celebrities weren’t born with their Hollywood smile, and that’s totally fine. We managed to find some snaps of some of our favorite celebs, young and old, flaunting their braces, and we could not look away.
Bright Side believes smiles come in all different shapes, alignments, and sizes, so let’s enjoy some grins.
1. Emma Watson
Having slightly crooked teeth, the actress wore braces in between filming the third and fourth Harry Potter movies.
2. Gwen Stefani
The singer got braces at 30 years old and stated that she always wanted to have braces as a child but up until that point, she never had the financial means to do so.
3. Emma Stone
Emma Stone used to suck her thumb until she was 11, and this had a noticeable impact on her teeth. A rare photograph of the actress was shared by a Reddit user, and it was confirmed that it is, in fact, Stone as a teenager, wearing braces.
4. Nicolas Cage
Nicolas Cage has had multiple procedures to fix his crooked teeth. His most recent one, his braces journey, seemingly went unnoticed, but, in fact, at the age of 39, he wore braces on his bottom teeth.
5. Angelina Jolie
Attending one of her first red carpet events, joining her father, Jon Voight, and brother James Haven, the soon-to-be worldwide phenomenon, actress Angelina Jolie, proudly flaunted her braces.
6. Chris Evans
The famous actor is a lucky guy when it comes to having his teeth fixed because his father is a dentist. “My teeth were trying to escape my face,” Chris Evans stated.
7. Dakota Fanning
As a kid, Dakota Fanning suffered from a condition that did not allow her baby teeth to fall out on their own, so her adult teeth started growing behind them. She had extensive dental work done and even had to wear headgear at one point, but it all paid off in the end.
8. Venus Williams
Venus Williams, the athlete who changed the world of tennis forever, shared a throwback photo of her flaunting not only her braces but her and her sister’s awards too.
9. Prince Harry
Among the British royals, braces were always popular. Princesses Beatrice and Eugenie and Prince Edward all had braces. In 1999, at 15 years old, Prince Harry hopped on the orthodontic train, sporting clear braces.
10. Kendall Jenner
The supermodel had her first set of classic braces when she was 13 years old and later, at 17 years old, she opted to further improve her teeth with Invisalign.
11. Jaden Smith
While filming Karate Kid, the young actor wore braces and chose to accessorize them with colorful elastic bands.
12. Ariel Winter
During the filming of season 2 of Modern Family, the actress started her braces journey and, even though she wasn’t thrilled about it, it was all worth it.
13. Sean Paul
The Jamaican DJ, singer, and rapper opted for clear braces, proudly joining the adult braces-wearing club.
14. Daniel Ricciardo
The Formula 1 phenomenon grew up with crooked, crowded teeth and opted for clear brackets. He publicly celebrated removing them in 2014, posting to Twitter, “Train tracks off! Smell ya later, braces, yeehaa!”
15. Cindy Crawford
The 56-year-old supermodel had classic braces in the ’70s to fix her overbite and crooked teeth. During a Pepsi commercial in 1992, the actress decided to get her braces fitted again.
16. Faye Dunaway
At the age of 61, the actress decided to upgrade her smile, proving, once again, that anytime is a great time for braces.
17. Megan Fox
The Transformers actress shared some snaps from her youth, and at 12 years old, she wasn’t only wearing braces but encouraged us “to admire my citrus/copper-colored highlights, my braces, and my ever-present sunburn.”
18. Tom Cruise
Tom had some major dental work throughout his younger years. In 2002, at age 40, decided to go for a touch-up, wearing clear braces for about 6 months. Despite his Hollywood smile, many fans can’t stop talking about the fact that his midline is not centered. However, we believe his smile is imperfectly beautiful.
