Celebrities with different coloured eyes

To celebrate 'National Different Colored Eyes Day', here's our top picks of our fave celebs who have different coloured eyes

You may or may not have heard of ‘heterochromia iridium’, the rare condition of having two eyes of different colours, but chances are you’ve heard of some of these famous people we’re going to mention.

In celebration of National Different Colored Eyes Day, we thought we’d point out just a few celebrities with different coloured eyes who have this unique and alluring condition.

Kiefer Sutherland

‘24’ - one of the most action-packed television shows of all-time - kept our fists clenched and hearts in our mouths thanks to its excellent direction, script and performance from lead Kiefer Sutherland. Prior to 24, Sutherland made his name in the hit movies ‘Stand by Me’, ‘Lost Boys’, ‘Young Guns’ and ‘Flatliners’.

A star both on TV and in movies, Kiefer Sutherland is also known for his sectoral heterochromia. To put it simply, this is where both of his eyes are a unique blend of two different colours – in this instance, a mix of green and blue.

Alice Eve

Probably the actress with the most noticeable case of heterochromia onthe list. Alice Eve’s eyes have captured the interest of millions of viewers in‘Men in Black 3’, ‘She’s Out of My League’ and ‘Star Trek Into Darkness.

Her impressive performances aren’t the only thing that catch the eye, however. With a blue left eye and green right eye, the actress has thrived with a look that’s both engaging and alluring. The mismatch may not be as obvious to some, with Eve once joking that it took one of her boyfriends nine months to notice her different coloured eyes!

Mila Kunis

Since breaking out with the role of Jackie Burkhart in ‘That 70s Show’ in 1998, Mila Kunis has gone from strength to strength, establishing herself as a household name. Lead performances in ‘Friends with Benefits’ and ‘Jupiter Ascending’ have followed, as has a Golden Globe-nominated turn in 2010’s ‘Black Swan’. And perhaps, most people might also recognise Mila as the voice behind the ever-unfortunate Meg in ‘Family Guy’.

Poor Mila has also suffered from blurry vision, cataracts, and even blindness in one eye throughout the years, before a surgery corrected these issues for her. However, one of the cataracts had the effect of changing one of her eye colours, leaving her with the brown and green eyes that have become synonymous with her look.

Jane Seymour

The British-born actress is known for her rise to fame as Bond girl Solitaire in ‘Live and Let Die’, and her Golden Globe winning performances in ‘East of Eden’ and ‘Dr. Quinn Medicine Woman’.

The iconic actress has stolen scenes in everything she’s acted in, but is also known for stealing looks with her different coloured eyes. Her heterochromia iridium is hereditary and has meant she’s had one green eye and one brown, a feature of her look that has been much-admired over the years.

NOT David Bowie

Celebrities coloured eyes

A common misconception is that the late great Ziggy Stardust himself had heterochromia iridium, due to one of his eyes appearing darker than the other. In fact, the unique eyes that became a key component of David Bowie’s iconic look were the result of a jealous fight with a friend over a girl they both liked. A clumsy punch to the eye resulted in the paralysis of the muscle that contracts the iris. To put it short, his pupil, which was fully dilated at the time, was unable to change size. This meant that whenever his other eye had a contracted pupil, the difference in colour created an intriguing effect. Named anisocoria, this condition came to be seen as a blessing by Bowie himself, who admitted that the odd feature added “a kind of mystique” that became synonymous with his iconic appearance.

There you have it, our top picks of our famous people with different coloured. And we even managed to sneak in a little lesson on David Bowie’s eyes in there too, for good measure.
