Bjork, Vincent Cassel, Tilda Swinton

Appearance is deceptive and is often far from the recognized standards of beauty, but this did not prevent the heroes of our material from building a dizzying career. And they received many contracts, roles and projects precisely because of their non-standard appearance. Together with model and actress Kristina Kustova, we talk about the brightest and most charismatic stars whose appearance was considered strange and brought them a lot of discomfort, but at the same time helped to achieve success and earn the love of the whole world.

Barbra Streisand

Barbra is the most famous “not a beauty” in Hollywood. Barbra was considered ugly even by her own mother, who often told the future superstar that she would not see a scene and should not have any illusions about this. But in spite of everything, Barbra found in her appearance the facets of femininity, gentleness, charm and charm, which attracted viewers all over the world.

Cher’s talent was not limited to one sphere — for example, the star marked an entire era in the music industry thanks to her eccentric image and inimitable contralto, and in the cinema she declared herself with roles in such cult films as “The Witches of Eastwick”, “Burlesque” and “The Power of the Moon”.

An important role in such a dizzying success was played by the unusual appearance of the star, which she always knew how to emphasize favorably with the help of spectacular makeup and authentic style, which still falls in love with herself today. Over time, Cher became very addicted to plastic surgery, which eventually deprived her of that unique zest in appearance, which conquered at first sight.

Vincent is considered one of the most charismatic men of our time and a sex symbol of Hollywood. At one time, the most desirable woman in the world, Monica Bellucci, could not resist his charms. But it would be cunning not to say that Vincent’s appearance is far from the recognized standards of beauty.

It is obvious that Cassel fully accepts himself and loves himself for who he is. The unique charisma of this actor is felt in any of his roles — perhaps that is why films with his participation never go unnoticed, the beautiful half of humanity is so accurate.

Bjork became famous not so much because of her unusual appearance, but because of her amazing performance of songs. Over time, she developed her own corporate identity and memorable image, which was enhanced by the space alien appearance. Unusual facial features played into the hands of a talented Icelander. Well, we can only enjoy her work that is unlike anything else.

Tilda had sharp facial features since childhood and already at that distant time realized that she was far from the canons of beauty. Whoever she was called — from just an androgynous to an alien. At that time, there was no question that with such an appearance one could build a dizzying career in Hollywood. Tilda herself didn’t believe it either. Nevertheless, over the years, a non-standard appearance has become a hallmark of the girl and gave her the opportunity to play some of the most memorable characters in the history of cinema.

Vinnie is an ex—participant of the popular TV show “American Top Model”. It was in this project that fashion critics and numerous brands drew attention to her. The girl has been suffering from a rare disease since childhood, vitiligo, caused by skin pigmentation. It manifests itself in the form of light spots all over the body .

As a child, Winnie was very complex about her appearance and tried to carefully mask light spots on dark skin. But thanks to her participation in the project and the love of a multi-million audience, she managed to accept herself and become one of the most recognizable and highly paid models in the world.

Benedict Cumberbatch

Benedict is one of the brightest representatives of the stars with a non—standard appearance. Like the other heroes of our selection, the actor felt special attention from childhood and often endured the ridicule of his peers. Even today, the most malicious of critics sometimes allow themselves to compare the appearance of a star with an otter. But this does not bother Benedict at all — moreover, thanks to his appearance, he brilliantly played some roles in historical films and TV series.

Rooney’s appearance is bright and memorable largely due to the fact that she is far from beauty standards: thin lips, a nose with a hump — all this gives the star a special charm. Perhaps that is why it is so easy for the actress to change her role and prove from time to time that she is one of the most diverse actresses of our time. She has received nominations for a large number of prestigious film awards, including Oscar, BAFTA, Golden Globe, as well as a victory at the 2016 Cannes Film Festival.
