Top 10 stories behind celebrity scars

We all like to discover the little secrets of stars to feel like we know them a little better. After talking about their homes, their phobias and their social security number, we tell you more about their scars. If some scars are just birthmarks like that of Joaquin Phoenix, others are the memory of a very particular story.

1. Harrison Ford

The American actor has a scar on his chin and it’s not from a whiplash (report to Indina Jones haha) or a spaceship accident (report to Star Wars haha). When he was 20 years old, the actor had a car accident. He probably hadn’t read his highway code book well because he drove off before putting on his seat belt and trying to fasten it, he hit a telephone pole and hit his chin against the steering wheel of the car. . He therefore opened his chin very badly and waited several hours before help arrived.

2. Tina Fey

Some actors almost died very young and Tina Fey is one of them. When she was only 5 years old, Tina was playing in the yard of her house when a stranger arrived with a knife and slashed her face. She now has a scar on the left side of her face that she doesn’t like to talk about at all (and we understand her, this story is just horrible).

3. Gaspard Ulliel

Another childhood anecdote for the actor who died far too soon in 2022. You have certainly noticed the dimple-shaped scar on Gaspard Ulliel’s left cheek. The actor had had this mark on his face since he was 6 years old, the age he was when his family’s Doberman gave him a big scratch.

4. Sandra Bullock

There are kids who are a little less cautious than others and above all much more reckless than others. It was probably the case of Sandra Bullock when she was a child since her accident could have cost her her life. While trying to dive into a lake, Sandra did not realize that it was not deep enough and her forehead hit a large stone at the bottom of the water. As a souvenir of this day, she keeps a scar near her left eye.

5. Viggo Mortensen

Viggo Mortensen has a small scar above his upper lip and it is not from the filming of Lord of the Rings. When he was 17, Viggo was celebrating Halloween with his friends and drank way too much. He found himself, without anyone really knowing how, stuck in barbed wire which left this mark on his face.

6. Franck Ribery

Frank Ribéry has many scars on his face and the footballer said he was laughed at all his life because of them. When he was 2 years old, Frank was seriously injured in a car accident. He was thrown against the windshield and required hundreds of stitches.

7. Jason Momoa

Actor Jason Momoa has a conspicuous scar on his left brow bone. So no, it’s not an attempt to come back to 2000s fashion by shaving the end of his eyebrow, it’s a scar from 2008. Jason was in a bar in Los Angeles when a fight broke out and a man hit him with a broken beer bottle. Bad atmosphere.

8. Tommy Flanagan

Tommy Flanagan is a British actor who grew up in Glasgow. As he was leaving a pub in the city one evening, he was attacked by robbers and wanted to defend himself. One of the men pulled out a gun to mutilate him by making a gash on either side of his mouth to his ears. This type of scar is called “Glasgow’s smile” and the actor is not the only resident of the city to have been mutilated in this way.

9. Cristina Cordula

Cristina Córdula has a scar on her neck that she has rarely talked about. When she was 5 years old, her parents noticed that she had a strange lump in her neck. After several analyses, it was decided to remove this mass so that it does not present any risk.


In the Lion King spin-off series, we learn where Mufasa’s brother’s scar came from. When he was a child, Scar was called Taka. While walking around, he got bitten in the face by a snake and it was Mufasa who gave him the nickname Scar to mock him. Not cool Mufasa.
