In the past, people expected celebrities to be the replica of the Greek gods and goddesses with divine features. However, people have started to accept the shortcomings of celebrities, including their overbites. Many of them cherish the talents of celebrities before judging their appearances. It has motivated a few celebrities to embrace their flaws and flaunt them rather than hiding them.
Here are a few celebrities who made it big, despite having overbites.
The first one on the list is Freddie Mercury, the legendary lead vocalist of Queen.
The British songwriter was always the talk of Hollywood until the day he died. Most of the time, he used to be in the limelight for his songs and his sexuality. Besides these, his appearance also got its share of attention.
Mercury had a peculiar look because of his teeth. His upper jaw had four extra teeth resulting in an overbite. His overbite was so prominent that people even started calling it the Freddie Mercury Overbite.
The singer was very conscious as people called him Bucky because of his overbite ever since he was small. However, he never tried fixing it up because he was scared it would affect his voice.
The gorgeous former actress, Eva Mendes, is another celebrity who is famous for their infamous overbites. She has given wholesome performances in movies like Ghost Rider, Bad Lieutenant, 2 Fast 2 Furious, etc. All these have made her one of the most celebrated actresses and beauties of Hollywood.
However, things were not the same when she was growing up. Her family used to tease her by calling her Bugs because of her overbite. It left a negative impression on her. She started feeling insecure and even compared it to a bottle opener. But with time and support from her partner and children, she has come around to accepting her flaws.
The veteran actor of Hollywood, Rock Hudson, was also one of the celebrities who had to go through difficult times because of his overbite.
The lead of the show McMillan & Wife was one of the most loved heartthrobs of his time, ruling both the movie industry and the TV industry.
Despite being one of the talented and natural actors, someone poked Hudson to get dental help to make his appearance more appealing to the audience. He took the advice and went through the procedure. His new aligned teeth are evident in the latter days of his career.
Denzel Washington is the two-time Oscars Award-winning actor best known for his movies Glory, Training Day, etc. He is also the actor who received the title of the greatest actor of the 21st century. He was hugely responsible for reconfiguring the concept of classic movie stardom.
The great actor is famous for his natural acting as well as for his overbite. During his early days, Washington had a prominent overbite, but he fixed it with the miracles of dentistry.
The stunning supermodel, Cindy Crawford, is one of the celebrities who had difficulties because of her overbite. The 5’9 ft gorgeous model had a bad history of prominent overbites and even some crooked teeth.
She thought the way her teeth looked would surely ruin her career. So, she took some dental help and got her brilliant smile that we can see now. She braced her teeth twice to mend her teeth.
Cindy fixing her teeth was not a worse decision as she was all over the runways, magazine covers, and even considered an international celebrity.
Jessica Paré is a gorgeous and talented Canadian actress who rose to fame through her role in the TV series Mad Men and SEAL Team. After gaining success, she appeared on the big screen and worked on several movies like Brooklyn, Hot Tub Time.

She is more confident than ever and has been releasing more great music.
The last one on the list is the super rockstar Avril Lavigne. The Canadian singer has been ruling the music industry ever since she started her career at fifteen.
