Do Celebrities Have bunions?

The answer to this is absolute!  Of course, there are plenty of celebrities with bunions and you can be sure that in many cases they are suffering from the painful condition thanks to the type of shoes they have to wear when living up to their glamorous lifestyles.

It is almost ironic that these same celebrities go to great lengths to maintain ‘perfect’ figures, hairstyles, and makeup and in some cases will undergo painful and expensive plastic surgery yet neglect their feet!

The trashy magazines will always find something to photograph and splash across their pages and in some cases, the feet are an easy target.

Below is a list of just some Celebrities who have or suffer from bunion

This list is by no means exhaustive and is not intended to shame or embarrass these celebrities.  It simply highlights the fact that anyone can suffer from the condition and that it is often the type of footwear that is to blame.

In fact, you would be hard-pressed to find many female celebrities who have been in the business for a few years who don’t suffer from some sort of foot deformity.  From what we have seen bunions are by far the most common issue and are almost certainly a result of the high-heeled shoes our female celebrities are expected to wear. Consider these shoes if you have bunions.

2022 Celebrities with Bunions

Michelle Yeoh, probably best known for her performance in “Crouching Tiger, Hidden Dragon,” may want to hide those bunions instead. Donning a pair of silver strappy heels (of course) at a red carpet event this year, her blistered and bony bump was on full display.
Serena Williams. Although we don’t want to judge her too harshly after her stunning performance at this year’s Olympic games in London, (Winning gold medals with bunions? Don’t say it can’t be done!) we hope that this dynamic tennis star is wearing an orthotic when she isn’t dominating the courts.
Uma Thurman. What can I say? A woman this tall should probably ditch the heels. Not only does this starlet not need them, they are wreaking havoc on her toes!
Katie Holmes. Although I totally understand the need to “step out” after a messy public divorce with someone like Tom Cruise, perhaps a night in caring for her painful, blistered feet might do her some good in 2013.
Paris Hilton. Years of partying in stilettos and jet-setting in Louboutins are starting to take a toll on this heiress’ feet. Although we applaud her for growing up a bit in recent years, it wouldn’t kill her to try out a pair of flats from time to time.
Naomi Campbell. She’s not the first runway model to have foot problems, and she certainly won’t be the last as long as high heels remain the industry standard for footwear.
Posh Spice (a.k.a. Victoria Beckham). OK, she technically had surgery to get rid of her painful bunions, but I predict that those pesky bumps are going to return soon since this pop diva did not learn her footwear lesson in 2022.

All I have to do is look at these ladies’ feet to know why I will be wearing flats for NYE – with bunions like those, it just doesn’t seem worth it – does it, ladies? Cheers to taking care of your feet, and happy New Year!

The video below shows some of the celebrities with foot problems listed above.

As you can see in the video some have progressed to the point where surgery and a change in footwear choice are probably the only options to fix these celebrities’ feet.  The problem is that the functions they attend almost require that they continue damaging their toes and feet by wearing high heels that create excess pressure on their joints.

I hope that some of these women who are looked up to by many others around the world will take a stand and openly make a change to the way they treat one of the body’s most important assets.  You may find yourself in a similar situation where you are expected to wear high heels and pointed shoes for work or when going out.

In moderation this is OK but wearing such shoes for 8 hours a day at work and then in the evenings when going out is a recipe for disaster in the long run.

I encourage you to limit the time you wear this form of footwear and think of it more as a treat, only to be worn on special occasions, the future you will thank you!
