Walk of Fame Stars You Never Could Have Imagined With Braces Published 3 years ago on Apr 11, 2016 By Carolyn Guerrero Braces are one of the most awkward and painful things a person can endure, especially when they are put in during your growing teenage years. They’re uncomfortable and they physically hurt – yet, at the end of the day, they leave you with a beautiful smile and super straight teeth. When you see celebrities with their perfect smiles and flawless teeth, just think to yourself, “Yep, they definitely had braces at some point.” Well, here’s a list of a-listers with braces, complete with photogenic proof! 14. Willow Shields, currently 15 TCA Willow Shields, star of the Hunger Games saga, got braces put in when she was only 11 years old. While she was filming the young adult dystopian series, she constantly had to keep removing her braces for shoots. Now, Shields has Invisalign – no more having to get rid of the braces! 13. Ariel Winter, currently 18 TNT This gorgeous Modern Family star also got braces put in at a young age. Ariel Winter had braces when she was 12 years old, back during season 2 of Modern Family. They’re off now – and her smile is completely beautiful. 12. Kendall Jenner, currently 20 Getty It’s hard to imagine Kendall Jenner being anything but the social media famous, fashionista sister of the Kardashian family. Yet, Jenner had her own awkward teenage phase, which culminated with braces at the age of 13, and again at 17. Now, the braces are long gone and Kendall’s selfie game is back on point. 11. Niall Horan, currently 22 @NiallOfficial Niall Horan became a mega pop star and teenage heartthrob at a very young age, which meant that the public got to see the whole puberty transformation. Yep, this transformation included braces. Niall got braces in 2011, when Horan was only 17 and One Direction was barely getting popular. 2 years later, in 2013, Horan tweeted: “Morning. ! This is it ! I’m goin to the dentist! I think this is my last hour with braces! Oh how I’m gona miss them ! Naaaaaaat !” 10. Dakota Fanning, currently 22 Getty Dakota Fanning has been in the public eye for as long as anyone can remember, which means we’ve gotten to see a lot of the growing up process. For Dakota, this meant a lot of misadventures and accidents with her teeth. Fanning has had missing teeth, pulled teeth, multiple retainers, several sets of braces, and even headgear, which she wore on Ellen once. 9. Miley Cyrus, currently 23 Disney Miley Cyrus is another child star that the public has gotten to see grow up. A Disney star, Miley had lingual braces put behind her teeth during her Hannah Montana years to avoid visibility of the braces. Now, the braces are off, and Miley can go back to being ‘smiley.’ 8. Emma Watson, currently 25 Warner Emma Watson is undeniably a highly beautiful girl, and part of that has to do with her winning smile. Though, Watson was insecure at one time, saying, “I had terrible skin at one point and had to wear braces at another.” It’s okay, Emma, you’re still gorgeous! 7. Prince Harry, currently 31 teentimes.com There’s no escaping complete documentation by the media for this family. Prince Harry has been on cameras since the day he was born, which means that there is plenty of evidence of his braces. Even princes can’t be free. 6. Prince William, currently 33 Getty Harry isn’t the only prince to wear braces, however. His older brother, Prince William, also wore braces! In 2009, the Royal Family spokesman released this statement: “Prince William has used a permanent support for his bottom teeth for ten years.” Thanks, guys. It’s just what we’ve always wanted to know. 5. Angelina Jolie, currently 40 Angelina Jolie Can you even imagine Angelina Jolie as a young girl yet to have gone through puberty? We sure can’t! Amazingly, though, Jolie was once a young girl wearing braces at the age of 16. 4. Gwen Stefani, currently 46 Max Abadian Gwen Stefani never really needed braces, but she chose to wear them during her No Doubt years (back in 1999) as a stylistic and personal choice. Stefani couldn’t afford braces as a child, so she got them later on in her career: “I could afford them at that point, and that’s when I went and got them.” 3. Faith Hill, currently 48 Getty Faith Hill isn’t shy when it comes to talking about her years with braces: “I had braces as a kid, and I forgot to wear my retainer. Kids, wear your retainer!” She also wore braces later in her life, as can be seen in this photo. 2. Tom Cruise, currently 53 eonline Tom Cruise is known for his iconic smile, but did you know that he had to get braces to perfect that glorious mouth of his? Unbelievably, Tom Cruise’s teeth weren’t always so straight and shiny. Back in 2002, Cruise wore clear braces to really make his smile beautiful. 1. Faye Dunaway, currently 75 UK Times Faye Dunaway got braces late in her life, at age 61, saying the reason as being, “You just sort of let your teeth go for a while. But it’s time to have something done.” You go, girl! UP NEXT Gunsmoke: Top Facts Behind The Longest-Lived Show on Television...
