It's hard to believe that a woman like Charlize Theron ever has any flaws, but the actress recently confessed to British tabloid The Sun about a childhood secret of not having any teeth until the age 11:
"My early childhood was quite devastating. I had no teeth until I was 11. I had these fangs because I had jaundice when I was a kid and I was put on so many antibiotics that my teeth rotted. They had to cut them out. So I never had [baby] teeth."
As one might expect, having no teeth can be rough on a kid especially when you have to deal with those annual year book pictures in school:
"That was tough […] being in school having photos taken while I was pretending I had teeth. It was hideous."
But thankfully, her adult molars set in before she headed to Hollywood and became famous. Now she has more than enough money to buy all the baby teeth she wants.
