Past Celebrities and Historical Figures with Bad Breath

Monday, January 3rd, 2011

Smoking, consuming alcohol, plaque, gum disease, dry mouth, post nasal drip, and tonsil stones are just a few causes of bad breath. Given the many causes, it’s no wonder that millions of people suffer (and have suffered) from bad breath.

Here are a few high-profile people of the past with bad breath, why they had it, and what they could have done to treat it.

Clark Gable – a famous actor of the 20th century is best known for his role in Gone with the Wind and his strong halitosis.  His co-star Vivien Leigh reportedly complained often of Gable’s bad breath while on-set filming the classic Civil War movie. His foul breath came from his dentures. False teeth and dental bridges can be a source of bad breath, especially when they are not cleaned properly. Perhaps Clark should have washed his dentures in one of TheraBreath’s oral rinses for his on (and off) screen kissing scenes.

Joss Stone Doesn’t Like Bad Breath

Thursday, March 11th, 2010

Joss Stone, a 22-year-old United Kingdom soul singer, says her main turn-off in a man is bad breath.  She says that she would never date a man with halitosis, and says “there’s nothing worse than bad breath.  I’ve snogged people with bad breath who smelt of fags and beer and it made me feel sick.”  She wants the men that she dates to have minty and fresh breath.

Even though she said she wants her boyfriends to be very clean, she has admitted that her hair isn’t always freshly shampooed.  She even said the following: “I once went a week without washing my hair and I did it deliberately because I wanted the natural oils to mend my hair. It didn’t smell, surprisingly, and no one commented on it. They probably thought, ‘Oh it’s just Joss.’ ”

She is currently single and said that she has a hard time finding the right man because she is too much of a free spirit, and men would get too protective and jealous if she wanted to disappear or go on a road trip.

Jersey Shore’s ‘The Situation’ is Against Bad Breath

Wednesday, February 3rd, 2010

Last week it was Simon Cowell, now this week we have yet another celebrity who has a phobia of halitosis.  We found out something that Jersey Shore resident Mike, also known as ‘The Situation’, can’t function without!  It’s not a tanning bed, the gym, or a washer/dryer– it’s a toothbrush!

According to a source, “The Situation always has a toothbrush on him. Always. Bad breath is the one thing that scares him more than pale people at the beach.”

Bad breath is just not ‘cool’, is it?

Celebrity Bad Breath – Vivien Leigh and Clark Gable

Wednesday, June 10th, 2009

Vivien Leigh and Clark Gable were previously voted “Best Onscreen Couple” based on their movie appearances in Gone With The Wind.  However, despite their onscreen chemistry, kissing scenes apparently were not at all desirable in Vivien’s eyes.  They failed to make friends on the set, and Vivien said she did not like kissing Clark because he had excessively bad breath.  Consequently, despite the fact that Clark and Vivien participated in one of the greatest epic dramas ever filmed, bad breath was a prominent reason as to why their onscreen chemistry was indeed purely acting.
