18 Famous People with Lisps

List of Famous People with Lisps, loosely ranked by fame and popularity. A lisp is a speech impediment that effects the way an individual says words that contain the letters s,z,f,t and d. Most lisps are caused by incorrect tongue placement when speaking. Overbites and underbites can also cause an individual (and celebrities) to have a lisp. Lisps can be treated with speech therapy.

Who is the most famous person with a lisp? Actress Drew Barrymore tops our list. The “Big Miracle” actress has made her lisp into a charming character trait. Barrymore's way of speaking has made it easy for comedians to impersonate her as demonstrated to near perfection by “Saturday Night Live's” Kristen Wiig. Barbara Walters is another woman who is famous for her lisp.

Boxer Mike Tyson speaks in a high voice and has a lisp. His unique way of talking led him to get in fights as a child as Tyson who beat up anyone brave enough to make fum of him. By the age of 13, Tyson had already been arrest 38 times. Actors Sean Connery and Humphrey Bogart have a very unique way of pronouncing their “S's” leading them both to have a slight lisp.
