Celebrities with heterochromia have a fascinating condition: their eyes are actually two different colors. In some cases, this anomaly is extremely noticeable, in other cases it is a bit more subtle. Either way, everyone listed here has the relatively rare and really cool condition called “heterochromia iridis,” meaning the irises of their eyes are different colors. Prepare to be amazed, because some of these famous people with different colored eyes are without question among the most beautiful women in Hollywood and some of the greatest film actors and actresses of all time, too.
Is having heterochromia a blessing, or a curse? Looking at the celebrities with different-colored eyes here, it’s easy to believe it’s a blessing. Some of the most extreme examples of celebs with heterochromia include Kate Bosworth (one blue eye and one hazel eye), Kiefer Sutherland (one blue eye and one green eye) and without a doubt Major League Baseball pitcher Max Scherzer. His heterochromia is impossible to miss: He has one incredibly blue eye and one very dark brown eye.
Actress Mila Kunis, a staple on any list of the most captivating celebrity eyes, also has heterochromia. Look closely: Mila’s left eye is green and her right eye is much darker, almost brown.
Sometimes, a celebrity has a very, very subtle heterochromia, where only part of the eyes are mismatched in color or the color difference is just barely there. Examples include Henry Cavill, Demi Moore and Jonathan Rhys Meyers.
David Bowie, one of the greatest musical artists of all time, is included on this list, though there is some disagreement about whether Bowie actually has heterochromia. Some believe his mismatched eyes are the result of one eye being permanently dilated. Either way, it’s hard to imagine Bowie without his signature look.
