While it is true that nowadays it feels like there are cookie-cutter celebrities manufactured on reality TV shows, there are a select few celebs that have made their bones while being physically less-than-perfect in a variety of ways.
Some are obvious, while others have defined themselves while keeping their physical uniqueness hidden. Here’s the list of the top 15 celebs that broke the mold.
1. Peter Dinklage (Achondroplasia)
This list starts off with Peter Dinklage, the well-known Game of Thrones actor who portrays the role of Tyrion Lannister. Tyrion, in the books, is known as The Imp, or a dwarf. Peter himself was born with achondroplasia, a common form of dwarfism.
As a teenager this understandably got to him. “When I was younger, I definitely let it get to me. As an adolescent, I was bitter and angry, and I definitely put up these walls.”
“But the older you get, you realize you just have to have a sense of humour. You just know that it’s not your problem. It’s theirs.”
