Some celebrities have embraced their unique nose shape and even made it a defining feature of their appearance. These are some examples:
Barbra Streisand is an iconic singer, actress, and filmmaker who has been vocal about her nose and the criticism she has faced because of it. Streisand has a prominent and unique nose, which some have called “unconventional” or “ethnic.” Despite facing pressure to undergo rhinoplasty early in her career, Streisand has always been proud of her nose and has refused to change it.
In an interview with Oprah Winfrey in 2003, Streisand spoke about her nose and how it has been a defining feature of her appearance. She stated that when she was young, she was told by a casting director that she would never make it in Hollywood with her nose. However, Streisand refused to let this discourage her and went on to become one of the most successful performers in history.
Streisand has also been an advocate for body positivity and accepting oneself as they are. She has spoken out against the pressure to conform to society’s beauty standards, stating that “we are all unique, and that’s what makes us special.” Streisand has used her platform to encourage others to embrace their differences and to celebrate what makes them unique.
In 2016, Streisand spoke with NPR about the criticism she has faced throughout her career and the pressure she felt to change her nose. She stated that she “loved her nose” and that it has helped her stand out in a crowd. Streisand’s refusal to conform to society’s beauty standards has inspired many, and she remains an icon of self-confidence and self-love.

Brody’s nose has been the subject of much discussion over the years, with many speculating that he may have had a nose job to alter its shape. However, the actor has denied these rumors and has said that his nose is natural.
In an interview with The Guardian in 2014, Brody addressed the rumors and said, “I didn’t get a nose job. I know it’s the first thing people think when they see me, but it’s my nose. I’ve had it since birth.” Brody’s decision to embrace his unique features has helped to redefine traditional beauty standards in Hollywood.

Nyong’o has spoken openly about her journey to embracing her natural appearance, including her nose. In a 2014 interview with Essence, she stated, “I remember a time when I too felt unbeautiful. I put on the TV and only saw pale skin, I got teased and taunted about my night-shaded skin and my one prayer to God, the miracle worker, was that I would wake up lighter-skinned.”
However, Nyong’o has since learned to appreciate her features and has become a symbol of beauty and diversity in the entertainment industry. In the same interview, she stated, “And then Alek Wek came on the international scene. A celebrated model, she was dark as night, she was on all of the runways and in every magazine and everyone was talking about how beautiful she was. Even Oprah called her beautiful, and that made it a fact. I couldn’t believe that people were embracing a woman who looked so much like me, as beautiful. My complexion had always been an obstacle to overcome, and all of a sudden Oprah was telling me it wasn’t. It was perplexing and I wanted to reject it because I had begun to enjoy the seduction of inadequacy.”
Nyong’o has also been celebrated for her red carpet looks, which often showcase her unique style and natural beauty. She has been named one of the most beautiful people in the world by People magazine, and has been praised for her contributions to the conversation around diversity and representation in the entertainment industry.
