With her fair skin, Moore's freckles are hard to miss – something the actress has come to accept with age, including using them as inspiration for her children's book series, Freckleface Strawberry. "I'd really rather not have them, but there's nothing I can do about them," she told Allure. "I think we learn as adults that there are other things that are more important."

The actress's gap-toothed smile is actually what led Mad Men creator Matthew Weiner to cast her in the role of Megan Draper, but Paré doesn't understand the fascination with her teeth. "I forget about them because they're in my face and they do their job just great," she told New York magazine, adding, "I never get anything stuck in them."

Due to a hereditary condition called heterochromia, Bosworth has two different-colored eyes, one hazel and one blue. The actress normally covers up with contacts in films, but for 2006's Superman Returns, "[Director Bryan Singer] wanted to keep them the way they are," she told Australia's The Sun Herald. "So now the Lois Lane dolls have different colored eyes."

"I was one of the only girls in my high school that didn't get [a nose job]. And if anybody needed it, I probably did," Michele told GQ of her distinct feature. "But my mom always told me, growing up, 'Barbra Streisand didn't get a nose job. You're not getting a nose job.' And I didn't."

30 Rock's star and scribe is usually filmed from the right side to avoid drawing attention to her facial scar, the result of a random act of violence from Fey's childhood when a stranger cut her cheek. "I proceeded unaware of it. I was a very confident little kid," she told Vanity Fair in one of the few times she's spoken about the incident. "It's really almost like I'm kind of able to forget about it, until I was on-camera."

Over time, Crawford's mole has become part of her iconic look – but that wasn't always the case for the supermodel. "They airbrushed off my mole," she told fashion magazine The Daily of her first appearance on the cover of British Vogue. "Whenever they mess with the mole, I cringe!"

Like Brooke Shields before her, The Mortal Instruments star has caused a stir with her untamed brows. "Big brows weren't the look in L.A., where I grew up," Collins, who is the daughter of musician Phil Collins, told Glamour. "But my mom instilled in me that it's the quirky things that make you beautiful."

The America's Next Top Model host has long joked about her forehead, which was nicknamed a "five-head" when she was younger. "I used to try to wear bangs and cover it up," she said. "[But] when I walked into a modeling agency, that was the first thing they said was special about me."
