Anna Paquin, Lady Gaga, Lily Allen and Other Unusual Beauties

Despite prominent noses, tooth gaps and third nipples, these stars still strut their stuff

Lady Gaga is a mega star. Her concerts consistently sell-out, she’s been on the cover of Vogue and Rolling Stone, and she’s an icon in the gay community.

Any of these feats is cause for celebration on their own. But considering Gaga’s extra, unspoken handicap, they’re all the more impressive:

Lady Gaga is not conventionally attractive.

Unlike the all-American Carrie Underwood or exotic Eva Mendes, whom 99 out of 100 people would likely label as “gorgeous,” Gaga’s features lack the delicacy and symmetry our primitive minds seek out when assessing beauty. And considering what a premium the American public places on looks -- especially among women -- it’s kind of shocking that LG has gotten as far as she has. It means people are actually paying attention to her talent. What a novel concept!

That said, the artist is forever covering her face with elaborate masks, concealing glasses even headgear.

But Lady Gaga isn’t the only famous beauty to find success despite a physical quirk or two. Here are some others:

The beauty: Anna Paquin
Her quirk: Gap in her upper front teeth
