So I guess this is one way of, uh, infantilizing female celebrities. An Instagram account has sprung up that features photos of actresses laughing, smiling and otherwise enjoying themselves—oblivious to the fact they're missing their top row of teeth.

The effect is more dramatic on some than others. Lindsay Lohan, who has suffered from dental problems doesn't seem to look radically different toothless, although it does age her. A young Dakota Fanning just looks younger. Angelina Jolie looks like just another actress without her teeth. Emma Stone is recognizable, but she looks like a scary baby. Anne Hathaway, who has one of the biggest grins in Hollywood, looks cartoonishly out-of-proportion without her teeth. The large-lipped Julia Roberts has the same problem.

It's strange how such a small change can be so noticeable and creepy (like the episodes of "Arrested Development" episodes where Gob loses his teeth).
