33 Famous People with Hepatitis C

List Criteria: Notable celebrities with Hep C

List of famous people with Hepatitis C ranked by fame and popularity. Hepatitis C is an infectious disease that affects an individual's liver. The disease can lead to cirrhosis, which can develop into liver failure or liver cancer. Hepatitis C is spread by blood-to-blood contact, and there is currently no vaccine against the disease. Hepatitis C can be treated, and in rare cases, the infection can clear without undergoing any treatment.

Who is the most famous person with Hepatitis C? Pamela Anderson tops our list. The “Baywatch” beauty claims that she contracted the disease after sharing a tattoo needle with her ex-husband, Tommy Lee. Lee denies that he has Hepatitis C. “American Pie” actress Natasha Lyonne was on death's door when she was diagnosed with Hepatitis C and a collapsed lung. Lyonne has struggled with drug use and addiction, but she is now back to work on “Orange is the New Black.”

Several famous musicians have also been diagnosed with Hepatitis C. Rolling Stones guitarist Keith Richard's had the disease, but claims that he cured himself. Grateful Dead co-founder Phil Lesh underwent a liver transplant to treat his Hepatitis C, as did David Crosby. Red Hot Chili Peppers' frontman Anthony Keidis contracted the Hep C because of his drug use.
