    Default Any famous people have Rosacea?

    Considering how many people have it, I'm sure more than a couple of Celebrities must have it.

    Thing is, they are rich, and so can afford the best treatments, as well as airbrushing of Photos etc.

    Does anyone know any though?

    Thanks for that list, William Shatner is one of my favorite celebrities, it's good to know that it's not only normal people who have this!

    Shatner also has tinnitus, which is a constant buzzing in the ears that never ever stops

    Bill Clinton had Rosacea really bad during his Presidential years. But if you notice him now he is very clear. Probably had laser treatments.

    It's interesting looking at that list. Some of them I have trouble believing it, but the minute I read "Renee Zellwegger" I could totally see it.

    Which brings up an interesting question. Obviously a lot of times she's benefitting from professional makeup jobs and such, but I've been a fan of hers for a long time and while I (from my current perspective as someone struggling with it) can think back and see that her rosacea has been pretty obvious a lot of the time, I can honestly say that not one single time - seeing her in a movie or just in street snapshots or anything - did I think to myself "god, what's wrong with her skin?" Not ONCE.

    I just have to wonder if a lot of the time we think we look worse than we really do...

    Hi Chartreuse,
    For many of us it is not mainly about how our rosacea makes us look but about how it causes physical pain. When I flush my face burns and depending on the severity of the flush the burning can be quite intense.

    I think it is important to understand that it is the physical pain of rosacea that causes distress for many of us more so than the effect on appearance though that can cause emotional distress of course but nothing is as bad as the physical pain of it for me.

    Best,
    Melissa
