Celebrity Scars: 5 Famous Folks Who Have Flaws (Photos)

Tina Fey's Scar

First I should say that not everyone sees their scars as flaws. Instead many, like Padma Lakshmi and Catherine Zeta-Jones, embrace their scars as part of the history and what makes them who they are today.  But it is encouraging to see that a person doesn’t have to be traditionally “perfect” to become a star. Take Tina Fey for instance, she has a very obvious scar on her face but it didn’t effect her career in movies and TV. Other scars just look distinctive, like Harrison Ford‘s.

Huffington Post, in celebration of Shark Week, put together a list of celebrities with scars, we’ve pulled some of our favorite celebrity parents who flaunt their “flaws.” Check out who they are and how they got them right here.
