Ranking The Best Celebrity Bracefaces

Doesn’t it make you a tad bit happy to know these celebrities once struggled with cheesecake, pizza crust, and popcorn like the rest of us?

33. Anna Kournikova

Wow, OK. Never mind, some people get all the luck.

I’m sure snagging an “American Boy” was actually no problem while sporting these things. Wish I could say the same for myself.

31. Lourdes Leon

Maybe having Madonna as your mom somehow makes all aspects of puberty less difficult?

30. Danny Glover

If ever a question about wearing braces with a turtleneck and mustache, the answer is yes, my friend. Wear all three.

29. Emma Watson

Oh, totally. Me too.

28. Niall Horan

His strategy is admirable, indeed: No one will notice the braces if you sport a massive fompadour (fauxhawk and pompadour combined).

27. Willow Smith

Hop up out the bed, turn your swag on, but please be careful not to forget your retainer.

26. Thomas Sangster

Getting the shit kicked out of us by love would’ve been a lot easier if we had all looked this adorable while wearing braces.

25. Dakota Fanning

Where she temporarily lacked in teeth, she made up in enthusiasm.

24. Nicholas Cage

Understated glamour.

23. Jaden Smith

Is there anything cooler than wearing braces with a vest? Yes, many things, but the boy pulls it off.

22. Emma Stone

Emma stone was seriously precious with braces, I was really counting on her to come through on this one.

21. Cindy Crawford

OK, so my orthodontist totally forgot to add that sparkle. Nbd.

20. Serena Williams

Beads. Just keeping adding beads.

19. Megan Fox

Wearing an uber-tan/sunburn helps braces look more subtle, if you ask me. Also, it helps if you’re just Megan Fox, period.

18. Kate Hudson

Still less awkward than me in middle school; I was on my third perm at this point.

17. Prince Harry

What on earth would we have done if paparazzi had followed us around in sixth grade? Flossed more, probably. But, probably not.

16. Vanessa Hudgins

Middle School Musical would’ve been a more entertaining alternative if everyone sang about food in their teeth.

15. Mark Ruffalo

I wouldn’t have minded my braces getting tangled with this guy’s, if you know what I mean.

14. Angelina Jolie

Comforting to know even the world’s most famous celebrity changed out her rubberband colors.

13. Fantasia Barrino

Accessorizing is key, which is great because braces match everything.

12. Gwen Stefani

This shit is bananas. But in all seriousness, be sure to brush your teeth after you eat bananas.

11. Marilyn Manson

I’m pretty sure Marcy Playground was inspired by these braces, no?

10. Blake Lively

OK we all know how this ends up, so there’s really no point in saying anything.

9. Faith Hill

Braces are exciting! Until they’re not exciting, you know?

8. Rashida Jones

I’m mildly convinced you can’t become a funny lady until you’ve gone through this exact stage of life.

7. Jeremy Piven

I don’t know which process was more painful: his overzealous plucking, the pinch from the puka shells, or adjusting his underbite. Probably the puka shell pinch, if I remember correctly.

6. Faye Dunaway

My mom had braces as an adult, so I know how you feel, Faye. Ain’t nothing gonna get in the way of you and your lipstick.

5. Drew Barrymore

At least we can all identify, am I right or am I right?

4. Elizabeth Hassleback

OK, so this is unfortunate. I’m not gonna sugarcoat it.

3. Gwyneth Paltrow

Like Gwyneth, I like the idea of kale and a nonjudgemental approach to life. With that said, this photo.

2. Ryan Seacrest

Cheese and rice, Ryan. I don’t even know what to say anymore.

I mean, this is it, folks. The braceface to end all bracefaces.
