So if you have crooked teeth, should you be discouraged about pursuing an acting career? Sure, the pitfalls are that casting agents will tell you to fix your teeth. But for some actors, messed up teeth has been a blessing.
Chew on this.
Steve Buscemi just earned a lead actor Emmy nomination for his role as mobster Nucky Johnson on HBO's "Boardwalk Empire," which scored 18 nominations overall Thursday. But he says he'd never have gotten to where he is now if he'd heeded early advice to change his smile.
"I've had dentists who have wanted to help me out, but I say, 'You know, I won't work again if you fix my teeth,'" Buscemi, who also won a Golden Globe last year for the role, said during The Hollywood Reporter's recent drama actors roundtable.
Buscemi isn't the only one who has refused to correct his pearly whites.
