15 Celebs You Would Never Guess Had Braces
Single people don’t just judge their date for grammar skills and confidence levels. According to USA Today, it’s all about the teeth as well. Teeth are so important that even Lady Gaga wrote a song about them. How do celebrities fix their teeth? They might use braces for teeth that are overcrowded, overlapping, or containing too much space in between. But whatever you do, don’t watch the Youtube video by “EpicEleanor” that is called “I ripped out my braces” because that will make you think about gross things. All of these celebrities used braces to perfect the beauty of their shiny teeth.
Take me to New York, I’d love to see LA and so would Estelle because she wants to come kick it with her perfect teeth that had braces on them in 2008. The Daily Mail reported that American executives wanted her to get her teeth fixed. “I’ve been wanting braces since I was 20. I’ve just now got the courage to get them. I don’t like pain. I’m such a wuss,” said Estelle.
Tom Cruise allegedly might be funding the Church of Scientology, but he also funded his braces back in 2002. He was 39 years old at the time so you see it is never too late to get a braceface. Maybe braces were the reason he was able to date stars like Nicole Kidman and Penelope Cruz. Cruise is in Atlanta for a movie called “Mena” about a pilot who lands work in the CIA and as a drug runner.
Drew Barrymore also wore braces and she has the smiling pictures to prove it. Her teeth were always in a decent state even when she was seven years old. There’s a Youtube clip from when she was on the Jimmy Carson show in 1982 and they were talking about her “pretty” teeth. She then pulled out her flipper teeth which are removable dentures since her real teeth were still growing in.
Lourdes Leon is the daughter of Madonna. She had braces in 2010. Lourdes doesn’t exactly approve of all of her mother’s work, according to a Carson Daly interview. “She just wants me to be her mom. Every time my kids would visit me in the studio, it would just so happen that I’d be working on a song like ‘Holy Water’ or ‘S.E.X.,'” said Madonna. The rebel heart has her rebel daughter.
No more wire hangers! But wire braces are okay. Faye Dunaway got braces at the age of 61. “You just sort of let them go for a while, but it was time to have something done to my teeth. I’m glad. It’s going to be good,” said Dunaway in a NY Daily News piece. Dunaway is supposedly writing a book about her recollections behind the scenes of the movie “Mommie Dearest” in which she starred.
Jeremy Piven had braces when he was younger, probably when he was at Harand Theater Camp in Wisconsin. He played the Hollywood agent Ari Gold on the show “Entourage” for which he won a Golden Globe. He is now promoting a PBS show called “Mr. Selfridge” about an American entrepreneur who opened a department store in London. “The truth of the matter is that PBS has the best pedigree of shows on the air,” said Piven.
Leave it to Danny Glover to really make a difference in the world through the use of dental braces. He wore braces in the movie “Shooter” and one fan on the website Archwired.com was not impressed. “What a terrible voice he had with them…I hate to say it but if I were casting I would not have cast him because the braces took so much away from him,” said a user named Kat. Then another user named Michael said “I would have hired him because he had braces.”
Rashida Jones tweeted an old photo of her with braces to connect with her fans. She got over 200 retweets and a lot of comments! She posted, “School photo #3: 1990. Awkwarrrrrrrd. Why the turtleneck?! So much wrong here. #therealme #seemymovie #candjforever.” One fan named @cybermelli commented, “Just imdb’d to find out if we’re the same age. I feel like all my school pix have the same bad fashion/hair as this shot!”
Did the wizards and students of Hogwarts brush their teeth? Emma Watson probably did since her teeth looked fine before and after her braces. On the forum Cosforums.com in the “Chamber of Secrets” thread, a user named “somerandom592” had all the answers. “They do brush their teeth, in ‘Deathly Hallows’ Hermione asks Harry if he wants his toothbrush,” said Somerandom592. Be right back, scanning every page of that Harry Potter book to see if they actually brush and floss.
Austin Mahone talked to M Magazine about getting his braces and he did not hold back. “I was actually kind of excited to get them on, I was ready. After the first month, I was like, ‘OK, I hate them. I want them off. Every time I went to the orthodontist, I would ask, ‘Is it time for me to get them off yet? And they’d always be like, ‘No, one more year,'” said Mahone.
Niall Horan of One Direction had his braces taken off in 2013 and celebrated with Japanese food, according to the Huffington Post. “Morning! This is it! I’m goin to the dentist! I think this is my last hour with braces! Oh how I’m gonna miss them! Naaaaaaat,” tweeted Horan. Too bad for him, a Madame Tussauds wax figure of him will reportedly have his braces on forever. Horan has yet to comment on Zayn Malik specifically in his tweets.
Faith Hill has a warning to all kids who don’t want to be in her situation of having to wear braces as an adult. “I had braces as a kid. I forgot to wear my retainer. Kids, wear your retainer,” said Hill to KNIX radio. Rumors from Star Magazine stated that Hill kicked her husband out of the house recently for fooling around and there was a big fight. Hill is recovering from neck surgery for an injury from years ago.
You know braces are pretty expensive when even celebrities can’t afford them until they become rich. “I always told myself when I got rich, that’s the first thing I’d do,” said Gwen Stefani to Harper’s Bazaar. There is no doubt that this Harajuku lover is on the cutting edge of aesthetics with or without her braces. Stefani performed at the Global Citizen 2015 Earth Day rally this weekend with Usher and Train.
Dakota Fanning had a lot of teeth pulled. She doesn’t have an enzyme in her body to break down the roots of her teeth. She got gold dollar coins per tooth. She keeps all of the teeth after the dentist pulls them. On some talk shows, she pointed to an area near her nose and cheek where a stray tooth was growing. All of this can be seen in the Youtube video titled “Dakota Fanning has crazy teeth problems.”
She came in like a wrecking ball and people talked about Miley Cyrus and her braces in “Hannah Montana.” She allegedly had them glued to the back of her teeth, according to a Facebook called “Facts that will blow your mind.” Well, consider our minds blown because it seems like she always had great teeth. Cyrus has been busy with the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame induction of Joan Jett who she called her biggest inspiration.
