I looked at a photo of David Bowie once and noticed that his eyes are different colours to each other.

I thought it looked pretty amazing, so I researched and discovered that it's a condition called 'Heterochromia'.

I was wondering if there are any other famous people with heterochromia, or even anybody in the actual pit?

P.S. Marylin manson uses contacts so he doesn't count.

I'm pretty sure Zoot is a heterochromiac, and some others I don't remember. Mila Kunis has it too.
#5
His eyes look the same color to me...one pupil is just way dilated...(or the other is way constricted, I guess).

Went to school with a girl who had it. Two different color browns though, nothing too striking. It was still awesome though.

A friend of mine has heterochromia. She has one bright blue and one bright green eye. Looks very cool!

I had a heterochromic cat once.
But Bowie's eyes are different colors 'cuz he got punched in the face when he was younger & one of his eyes was permanently fucked up.

Wikipedia's the best I can do, 'cuz I'm not a big enough Bowiefag to read books about Bowie, but:
He received a serious injury at school in 1962 when his friend George Underwood, wearing a ring on his finger, punched him in the left eye during a fight over a girl. Doctors feared he would lose the sight of the eye, and he was forced to stay out of school for a series of operations during a four-month hospitalisation.[12] The damage could not be fully repaired, leaving him with faulty depth perception and a permanently dilated pupil (the latter producing Bowie's appearance of having different coloured eyes, though each iris has the same blue colour).

Apparently Alexander the Great had heterochromia.

I know a guy who has it, it's not *that* rare, he has a blue and a light brown eye.

I have central heterochromia, my eyes are blue, but I have a yellow/gold ring around my iris, I also have some golden flecks.

Yeah, it's less cool than bowie though by far, it's my left eye which is the shade of green as my dads eyes are then it fades to brown to the top, the right eye is all brown (As my mothers eyes are)

My friend has partial heterochromia. Her one blue/brown eye split horizontally looks pretty f'n cool! This is from when she was a baby.

I kind of have this. The majority of my eyes are my mother's blue, but the area just around the pupils is my father's hazel. It isn't distinct enough for people to notice, though.

I think it's the flash but I could be wrong. She doesn't look c-eyed now.

I have this version too with almost the same colors - mine are greyish blue with gold. And I know a guy near Boston that also has it.

Not entirely related, but one of my friend's mom has eyes that can change color depending on her mood. Supposedly they change slightly violet when she's angry.

They can appear different in different lights but I highly doubt they do that.

Well this is odd. I never realized a ring around the iris counted as a condition. This isn't my eye but mine are similar to this: CLICK Except with gold/yellow where the brown is.

Now that I think of it, I think I may have heterochromia.
My eyes are dark green, but they have a hazel ring near the pupil
