Let’s go on a journey behind to see one very funny yet annoying thing that happens between actors and actresses behind the scenes of some of your favourite movies.
Actor: (reading out his lines) Please come to closer Diane, this distance is killing me. I hate how close you are, yet you feel so far away. Why do you hate me so much? Every breath I exhale feels like it will be my last because you take a step further away from me with every breath. Please, my love, don’t leave me here.
Diane: Shut up already! This scene is going to take some courage to act out. I need to catch my breath, please. I have been holding it for a few Minutes. By the way, you should have some Mentos; it is great for bad breath.
When it comes to bad breath, we all agree that it can ruin even the best of love affairs. Growing up, I used to think that everything about famous people was perfect and that includes their breath. I guess the guy sitting next to you on the bus, and that friend of yours who only brushes his teeth twice weekly are not the only people with bad breath. I have put together a list of some famous people you would never have thought to have smelling mouths.
What is bad breath, why do people have it, and how to deal with it? That too will be discussed here.
What is bad breath?
Halitosis or bad breath is a popular oral health condition characterised by an unpleasant smelling breath usually as a result of poor oral hygiene. One in five people around the world suffer from halitosis, and it can be very embarrassing. As much as people without this condition feel angry when they come in contact with those who have it, the victims of halitosis themselves are far from happy with their problem and often time gets express anxiety or slip into depression because of it.
Causes of bad breath
When food gets stuck between the teeth, and they begin to break down, there is going to be a bad smell coming from your mouth. Certain foods like garlic and the others in the onion family can cause bad breath after they have been digested into the body. This is because their goodness goes into the bloodstream after digestion.
Dentists advise that we brush our teeth twice daily and floss regularly. Cleaning regularly doesn’t mean that you like the taste of your toothpaste it is just the right thing to do so you can get rid of hidden food particles in your mouth. Bacteria from hidden food particles cause a build-up of plaques between the teeth and gum, and it could lead to bleeding or swollen gum. Regular flossing helps to remove stubborn food particles that wouldn’t leave your teeth even when you brush.
Drinking water can help reduce bad breath. The mouth was made to be naturally wet with the presence of saliva. If for the reason of some medical condition the mouth becomes dry, bad breath can develop.
Trying to avoid carbs and burn weight? Or you just feel like fasting for personal reasons? Whatever your goal is, have it in mind that your body will have to breakdown ketones, and this chemical has a robust aroma.
Celebrities With Bad Breath
This list is in no order so do not get any ideas
1. Angelina Jolie
This one breaks my heart as Jolie is one of the worlds most loved actress. In February 2013, Brad Pitt gave her Mentos for Valentine’s day present. It is, however, no news that has constantly teased her about her condition. Could that be one of the reasons why they broke up? I’m just kidding. Despite Angelina’s bad breath, she is still an actress with a beautiful heart.
Queen B sadly is on this table I am shaking and for apparent reason. Rumour has it that this famous songstress has terrible breath and rapper Nas once turned down a date with this beautiful mother of Blue Ivy because of the condition of her breath. Well, JayZ hasn’t complained yet so let’s assume it’s all a rumour.
3. Jessica Simpson
Your crush is taking our breaths away with her breathing and she just had to be on this list. People with bad breath try to find a solution and do not go about telling people about their bad oral hygiene. But Jessica seems to be setting new standards for people with bad breath as she has come out in the open to say she only brushes her teeth thrice weekly. Way to go Jess!
4. Robert Pattinson
Who is your favourite vampire? Oh yes, he is mine too. But it seems Rob is not going to be turning us into vamps by biting us. He just might make us zombies with his bad breath. Want to know the bad part? This handsome man from twilight not only has a horrible mouth odour, but he also has a bad body odour. It seems Rob has a thing for the smell.
5. Ben Affleck
It appears that Ben had had his fair share of the bad breath stigma and had even had to deal with embarrassing situations like one time in 1999 when Sandra Bullock gave him some mints to help drown his bad breath while they were filming a movie.
6. P Diddy
So, I was wondering why Diddy always had a toothpick in his mouth. I think I just figured it out. Diddy is probably trying to get rid of food stuck between his teeth. This Man has been rumoured to have bad breath, and he hasn’t come out to defend himself yet, so we hold with the rumour till then.
7. Jennifer Aniston
Some of Jenny’s colleagues seem to be unhappy with the state of her breath, and they have revealed to people a couple of times that her breath smells like coffee. Better coffer than the sewer yea?
These are just seven of your favourite people who have bad breath. I bet there’s more who should be on this list, but we are going to let them escape it this time.
Dealing with bad breath is not easy, but it is easy to get rid of it. Proper personal hygiene and regular visit to a dental clinic are all you need to get it fixed.
