4 of 25: George Clooney suffered from Bell's Palsy, a condition that partially paralyzes the face, earning him the nickname 'Frankenstein' in middle school according to People magazine.

'That was the worst time of my life,' he told the UK newspaper The Mirror in 2003. 'You know how cruel kids can be. I was mocked and taunted, but the experience made me stronger.'

It went away within a year.
