(Newser) – Celebrities may look flawless, but the Huffington Post reveals that some of them were born with certain, shall we say, quirks:

  • Carrie Underwood: The American Idol star had a third nipple that "looked like a mole," she told the show's judges. She had it removed.
  • Joaquin Phoenix: His distinctive lips are a result of a cleft lip, a common condition in which the two sides of a baby's upper lip do not fuse properly during pregnancy.
