Television pundit and comedian, Colbert likes to show off his body oddity — a lame ear. He rolls his ear down into itself and then gives a little sideways grin to make it pop back out. In an interview with David Letterman, Colbert explained that his body quirk was because of a problem inside his right ear when he was younger. It required an operation to “scoop it all out with a melon baller.” The surgery caused him to lose hearing in that ear. “This is just a prop,” he said, flicking his ear. “It doesn’t work at all … It’s all gone. Nothing in here.”
Ashton Kutcher: Webbed Toes
“I have connected toes…They’re slightly webbed. When everything else is this good-looking, something has got to be messed up!” That was Kutcher’s response when asked about his webbed feet on a British television show. Syndactyly of the feet is a body cosmetic deformity — no medical treatment is necessary. Syndactyly, which usually occurs in between the second and third toes, is one of the most common congenital hand or foot defects. About one out of every 2,500 babies is born with syndactyly, which may require surgery to separate the fingers or toes. Webbing usually occurs between the second and third toes, as is the case for the Two and a Half Men star.
