List of Celebrities with Vitiligo, loosely ranked by fame and popularity. Vitiligo is a condition that effects the pigments of an individual's skin. The cause of vitiligo is unknown and stress can worsen the disorder. Vitiligo can be treated by applying steroids and using ultraviolet light. In extreme cases an individual may opt to de-pigment their unaffected skin so that it blends in with the patches effected by vitiligo.

Who is the most famous person who had vitiligo? Michael Jackson tops our list. Michael Jackson always said that he had vitiligo and that the condition was making his skin lighten in patches all over his body. Jackson always denied bleaching his skin and autopsy reports that were done after Jackson's death confirmed that he did in fact have the vitiligo.

Jon Hamm has stress induced vitiligo. The “Mad Men” actor says that the condition developed as a result of working on his hit TV show. Hamm's condition fluctuates in severity and primarily effects his hands. Other famous people who have vitiligo include “The Jerk” star Steve Martin, “Arthur” actor Dudley Moore and comedian Joe Rogan.
