The Terrifying Tales Behind Celebrity Scars

A celebrity can become famous for many reasons, including their acting ability, their attractiveness, and their on-screen presence, just to name a few. But some actors can actually add their flaws to this list of reasons why they're famous, becoming known for their super obvious scars.

Michael K. Williams, Tina Fey and Tommy Flanagan all have distinctive facial scars, which serve as a constant reminder of the time they survived a violent assault with a deadly edged weapon.

Tina Fey was just five years old when her face was slashed by a stranger behind her house.

Michael K. Williams was sliced by a razor during a fight at a house party, resulting in that signature scar that will forever typecast him as a tough guy.

And then there's Tommy Flanagan, who was jumped by thugs while working as a DJ in Scotland and given a Glasgow Smile, his face cut from his lips to his ears, leaving him with facial scars that tell a terrifying tale.

The Tina Fey scar bothers me. In her book she basically says it’s uninteresting and people who ask her about it are dumb. As if to underline this she says it happened in an alley behind her house, while her own husband told Vanity Fair that it happened in her front yard.

Really? A grown man intentionally disfigures the face of a random little child for no reason, and this terrifying life event is soooo boring that you’ve never really discussed it with your husband? I think she’s lying about something.
