This is a list of famous people with gap teeth. These gap-toothed celebs have at least one thing in common: they love to smile! Dental imperfections aside, stars like Madonna, Woody Harrelson, and Jack Black just grin and bear it when it comes to a gap tooth. Sure, some of the celebrities on the list below have had their diastema fixed. Zac Efron, for example, sported a space between his two front teeth as a teen but later removed the gap as he grew up into a Hollywood heartthrob.
Diastema is the medical term for the gap between two teeth, communal located in the incisors or molars. Humans are not the only ones who can be gap-toothed, because many species of mammals have been found to have a space between their biters. In other cultures, having a gap tooth signifies fertility or good wealth. While this may be true for the superstars in this list, it is not likely because of a gap tooth that made them successful. However, there are times when this imperfection has helped a person's career, like supermodel Lauren Hutton, who was known for her trademark gap teeth.
The list includes Hollywood legends, rock star royalty, and even political figures. Vote on your favorite gap-toothed star, and see how others voted on this crowdranked list. If you want to see how celebrities looked when they were young
