When people say that they “like a nice smile” in a prospective mate, they’re not really being entirely truthful. In actuality, a great smile means very little to most people if they’re not paired alongside an attractive set of teeth. This, we feel, is the great triumph of the new(ish) Tumblr site Actresses Without Teeth, which we think goes a long ways towards exploding the “nice smile” myth.
Take Kim Kardashian, for example. Great smile? Sure! However, remove her teeth from the equation and what you’ve got is something that will inspire more nightmares than wedding proposals. Actresses Without Teeth is chock full of examples of this phenomenon. There are literally dozens of examples on the site of what your favorite actresses —from Tina Fey to Amy Poehler, from Jennifer Hudson to Dakota Fanning— look like without their choppers. We have five examples for you to enjoy below, but for more, head over to actresseswithoutteeth.net.
