Ten Extremely Notable Celebrity Cleft Chins

I’m sure you guys are familiar with what a cleft chin is but let me give you a fun definition anyway.   “A cleft chin is also called a dimple in the chin, a chin cleft or even less elegantly termed a butt chin.  It is a small to large indentation in the chin that is actually genetically determined and is caused by failure of the lower jawbone to completely fuse together at the center point.”

I love how “butt chin” is actually used in the definition.  In any case we’ve all seen the cleft chin but it’s not quite as often you see it on famous people as technically it’s considered a flaw.

However, some of the most known actors and musicians have this feature on their face.  I’ve selected 10 that I think are extremely obvious.  Enjoy!

John Travolta

Look at that thing!  Man it was amazing in Saturday Night Fever.  It’s not quite as noticeable these days but when he was thinner Travolta lead the pack.

Bryan Brown

Whatever happened to this guy?  I always liked him.  Who could forget Cocktail?

Chevy Chase

Again, his isn’t as apparent these days but back in the 80s his little butt chin was on display.

Elisha Cuthbert

She’s the only female on this list and the only female I can honestly say I think to myself “weird that she has a cleft chin” every time I see her.

Kirk Douglas

Probably the most prominent cleft chin in the history of Hollywood.

Aaron Eckhart

He’s got all kinds of stuff going on with that chin.

Dan Hedaya

Since Hedaya is so hairy his cleft chin almost looks like a really dark patch of beard.  It’s a little strange.

David Keith

Another guy I wish was around more.  Personally I loved him in Major League 2.  Parkman!

Huey Lewis

Now that thing is awesome.

Viggo Mortensen

Viggo usually sports a beard these days but when he doesn’t, all hail to his cleft.

Bonus – Evan Stone

I had to throw in a porn star

Oh I know there are a ton more so chime in!

  • Uncoolaidman

    Ewan McGregor

  • Madison

    Tom Brady and Vince McMahon.

  • illeaturfamily

    HAH! Evan Stone’s is the most prominent in my opinion. One thing I always wondered was how the hell do you shave that thing? Do you have to pull the skin of your chin to one side to bring it out of the crevasse or do you just go over it with the blade normally?

    Oh, the things I think of while I’m bored as shit at work….

  • Ravenfury79

    How could we forget Bruce “the Chin” Campbell???

  • Sideshow

    Bruce doesn’t have a cleft chin, but he does have a colossal chin.

  • Hallam

    Hmmm… never thought about the whole shaving issue… you’ve got a point there

  • Josh

    This was one of those posts where I thought to myself “I’m going to go nuts if they don’t have…” and you thankfully did have Aaron Eckhart.

    Eckhart’s chin and facial hair make him the most manly man in Hollywood.

  • Fargo

    I’ll regret for admitting that I saw that movie, but the blond chick in “Torque” (fast and furious with bikes OMG!!) has also one

  • orlisnjangel

    Johnny Rzeznik from the Goo Goo Dolls!!

  • Gusto_Gusto
