When a strong man has a raspy voice, it can make him seem more rugged and tough. A beautiful woman with a husky voice might be considered sexy. This list includes famous actors and singers - male and female - with deep smoky voices. A scratchy voice can do different things for various celebrities. For an unfortunate person, a raspy voice can be really, really annoying.

Who is the most famous person with a raspy voice? Lindsay Lohan tops our list. The Mean Girls star's voice has been getting more hoarse and raspy in recent years. Her hoarse voice was especially prominent when she hosted Saturday Night Live in 2012. Lohan may have strained her vocal cords by overuse or damaged them by smoking. Other famous actresses with husky voices or vocal fry include Demi Moore, Emma Stone, and Whoopi Goldberg.

Several famous men also have raspy voices. Clint Eastwood's voice was perfectly hoarse as he delivered the line, “go ahead, make my day” in Dirty Harry. Gilbert Gottfried balances the fine line of funny and annoying by using his raspy voice to its fullest potential. Other famous men with hoarse, raspy voices include Al Pacino, Christian Bale, and “Macho Man” Randy Savage.
