Sheesh. The things people will single out to complain about. I wish I had perfect teeth.

German actor J├╝rgen Vogel has almost made his odd teeth a trademark:



A few years ago, he performed a hilarious parody on celebrities getting their teeth straightened and other cosmetic jobs (sorry for the distorted aspect ratio, but it comes with English subtitles):

So sorry, but...it should be; far too prominent & Actors Teeth Are Too Perfect.

I don't mind actors with perfect teeth, & they never have to go to the loo either, but movies should be better than real life.


Yes, Hollywood, (or film making in general) is supposed to be "larger than life". It's bigger, badder and prettier. But they are taking it too far. It no longer looks natural. Naturally nice teeth. Naturally nice eyelashes. Their looking like a Japanese fembot or something.

My favorite perfect teeth scenarios are medieval settings (Thrones, Borgias, etc) where most everyone is sporting Hollywood smiles.

The other end of the spectrum is when they make the bad guy's teeth look like the ultimate in bad oral hygiene!

Kristin Kreuk (SMALLVILLE, BEAUTY AND THE BEAST) has wonderfully pointy canines. When she throws her head back in a laugh or something, they stand out for a split second and give her an endearing, real-person vibe.

Nyaaah, some "Actors Teeth Are Two Perfect."

Two perfect teeth right here, Doc.

Two words:

Leonard

Nimoy

Seriously, his false choppers in the '09 Trek movie were just awful -I fully expected them to to extend at some point ala Alien and take a chomp out of Kirk.

In fact the image of Spock's ill-fitting dentures isso burned into my mind I couldn't thinkif anything else listening Nimoy's voice in the last Transformers movie.



I could not agree with this more. It was almost disturbing how white they were.


Another example is Jennifer Grey and her nose job. I much preferred the way she looked before it.

There was an article on Cracked recently about actors who fell off the map due to weird circumstances, and Grey was singled out because her nose job made her unrecognizable to her fanbase. It'd be like if Owen Wilson had his broken penis nose fixed...then he'd be every bit as nondescript and forgettable as his brother Luke Wilson.

I'll join the contingent and agree that the super perfect, super white teeth of actors has gone too far, particularly when they are playing supposedly grungy characters. They stand out so badly that the eye is drawn to this perfection of white on the face before anything else.

And yet Crazy Lee on Falling Skies had awful looking teeth. I remember hearing about how they worked her teeth over to make them look real for the character. Think I saw this on one of those webisodes on the Net, hosted by Wil Wheaton.

So they can't even be consistent! lol.

Totally non consistent. Pope had perfect teeth, Crazy Lee looked like some 90 year old hag. I recently read they wanted a grungy dirty character for Crazy Lee so they really went over board making Luciana look ugly. But that's besides the fact.

Forget the teeth. As weird as the teeth were, I could not get past his eyes. I don't know if it was the contacts he had on or what (and I know that at his age they are very heavy-lidded), but his eyes didn't even look human. The pupils and irises practically filled the entire eyeball. Like a horse's or a cow's.
