4 best smiles of the Golden Globe winners
SUMMARY: Discover who brought home the Golden Globes with the sexiest smiles.
Posted: January 14, 2014
Admit it or not, everyone aspires to get megawatt smiles like actors and actresses on the red carpet. On Sunday, Jan. 12, we had yet another chance to ogle at their blinding pearly whites, high style and brilliance as the A-list celebs swaggered into the Golden Globe Awards. There were a handful of surprises, including Leonardo DiCaprio's win for the best actor in "Wolf of Wall Street." For a star-quality grin like his, you might want to check out teeth whitening options. Here are our favorite smiles at the awards:
DiCaprio has been nominated 10 times for the Golden Globes, two of which he won - and he's not even 40 yet. Flick after flick, DiCaprio continues to impress, and for the money-grabbing, drug-addicted role he played in "Wolf of Wall Street," he took home another trophy for his case. Ever since the "Titanic" (throw back, we know), the Los-Angeles-born actor has had a straight, white and charming smile.
Today, with his work in the recent Scorcese blockbuster, it's impossible not to mention co-star Jonah Hill's humorous and giant veneers that make him a cartoonish standout. Another honorable goes to Margot Robbie, the Australian actress who played Leo's wife named Naomi in the movie, whose looks almost stole the show. As far as DiCaprio goes, we can only say one thing: My, that wolf has teeth.
Maybe it's because everyone's obsessed with her, or the simple fact that we can't get Katniss from "The Hunger Games" out of our minds, but there's something so humble and real about Jennifer Lawrence's smile that makes us drop our guard. For the second year in a row, her work earned her a Golden Globe, this time for best supporting actress in "American Hustle."
In the con-filled flick, Lawrence plays a trouble New Jersey housewife who's hardly seen without a cigarette in her hand. Had she been puffing real nicotine on set, it's doubtful the actors would've been able to get up close and personal for the intimate scenes. Smoking causes horrid bad breath, leaving odorous bacteria lodged on teeth and gums. It is known for the constant dry mouth, which doesn't help. Luckily, our crowd favorite Lawrence knows how to work a microwave and - as far as we know - steers clear of cigs in reality.
Even though Matthew McConaughey lost 38 pounds for "Dallas Buyers Club," for which he won Best Actor in a Drama, we're glad he didn't take a dent out of his chompers. The 44-year-old actor shows off a rugged grin that speaks for itself on and off the screen. In the movie, McConaughey has a riveting role as a rodeo cowboy who suddenly gets diagnosed with HIV.
In the real world, the disease weakens the immune system, making oral health problems very common for HIV patients. In fact, more than one-third of people living with HIV have oral conditions that arise because of a suppressed immune system, according to the National Institute of Dental and CranioFacial Research. Gum disease and dry mouth are two well-known symptoms.
Working alongside Jennifer Lawrence in "American Hustle," Amy Adams flashes her seductive smile as an elusive con artist. On Sunday, the Italian-raised actress brought home a Golden Globe for Best Actress in Musical or Comedy for her show-stealing performance.
Adams' grin as Sydney Prosser is both delicate and ferocious in the movie, playing a started-from-the-bottom-now-we're-here character on an emotional rollercoaster. Complete with twists and turns, her smile gets her into all sorts of trouble both legally and romantically. She must've not had bad breath, since she lands kisses on actors Christian Bale (Irving Rosenfeld), Bradley Cooper (Richie DiMaso) and even Jennifer Lawrence (Rosalyn Rosenfeld).
