I met Demi Moore back in the mid-’90s when she was still married to Bruce Willis, who was a friend of a friend. At first I was just blown away by how gorgeous she is, but after talking with her a few times, I started to look past her obvious beauty and saw she was a bit off the beaten track. We struck up a conversation about her Cherokee ancestry, and I told her my grandmother was Cherokee too. I guess as a way to prove I was telling the truth, she asked me to open my mouth and let her feel the backs of my teeth! It was a weird request, but I went along with it. She told me that a majority of people who are descended from Native Americans have curved, shovel-shaped incisor teeth, and then encouraged me to feel up her teeth as well. I had never heard of this before, but one of my Native American Studies professors later said it was true. Fast-forward to today: I just read that one of Moore’s beauty secrets is to have leeches suck the blood out of her belly button for purification purposes! And though it sounds crazy to me, she proved herself on one other seemingly outlandish idea before. Still, I think I’ll pass on the leech therapy.
