Hey there, metal mouth! Even celebrities have braces! This list of celebrities who had braces is loosely ranked by fame and popularity, and is full of nerdy pictures of famous people with braces. Braces are devices that are used to straighten an individual's teeth and correct overbites and underbites. Most times braces are worn in adolescence, but some very famous people had to wear braces as adults. Invisalign braces are available now and they provide celebrities with the ability to correct their smiles covertly, but we should never forget about these beautiful people who had to wear braces like some gross non-celebrity person.

Who is the most famous person who wore braces? Angelina Jolie tops our list. The Mr. and Mrs. Smith star wore braces and glasses growing up. When she got her braces removed and opted for contacts, she began her modeling career before breaking into the family business of acting. Other famous actresses who wore braces include Emma Stone, Gwyneth Paltrow and Kate Hudson.

No Doubt front woman Gwen Stefani wore braces as an adult. She told the media that she was wearing them as a fashion statement. Beyonce Knowles also decided to wear braces by choice. She wanted to support her fans who felt self-conscious about having to wear dental gear. Other celebrities and models with braces as adults include Tom Cruise, Danny Glover and Alyssa Milano.
