ICYMI, the first trailer for X-Men: Days of Future Past has hit the Internet! That means you can see your favorite faux mutants back in action on the big screen, like, really soon. But before that time comes, we wanted to fill you in on a little secret: Celebrities can be mutants, too; real ones!

You know how Kate Bosworth‘s always praised for her two different-colored eyes? (One’s brown and one’s blue.) That’s an actual genetic mutation, which was actually brought up in X-Men: First Class, called heterochromia. And you know how Elizabeth Taylor — may she rest in peace — had double rows of eyelashes? That’s also a mutation, called distichiasis. Keep clicking for more celebrities that are basically like X-Men and have genetic anomalies:

Celebrity Mutants: Megan Fox

The Transformers actress is beyond gorgeous, but that doesn't mean she's without her flaws. According to surgeons, she unmistakably has brachydactyly, a fancy word for clubbed thumbs.

Celebrity Mutants: Harry Styles

The One Direction lad confessed it himself -- he has four nipples!

Celebrity Mutants: Mila Kunis

Okay, so suffering from inflammation of the iris (thereby losing some vision) isn't a genetic mutation, but it left the Black Swan actress with one brown eye and one green eye, so it's still fascinating.

Celebrity Mutants: Ashton Kutcher

As for Mila's boyfriend, he has his own deformity via his feet. The Two and a Half Man actor has syndactyly a.k.a. webbed toes. Who knew?

Celebrity Mutants: Shailene Woodley

Similarly to a monkey, the 'It' girl has prehensile appendages. She revealed to Conan O'Brien, "There’s this cool thing called prehensility, which is the way we can move our fingers and our toes, and so a friend brought it to my attention a few years ago, and I've been practicing spreading my toes and see how far I can get them, and I was able to clasp hands, but with my toes with a friend once."

Celebrity Mutants: Dominic Sherwood

One of our favorite up-and-coming British hotties has heterochromia, making him that much hotter. No really, just try looking into his eyes without swooning.

Celebrity Mutants: Karolina Kurkova

Upon birth, the Victoria's Secret model is said to have had an umbilical hernia, so she was forced to undergo an operation when she was an infant, leaving her with a missing belly button.

Celebrity Mutants: Zac Efron

Likewise to Harry Styles (though, not as visible), the heartthrob allegedly has four nipples. His reps have been quick to deny the claims, saying they're simply moles. Either way, we still prefer him shirtless.

Celebrity Mutants: Kate Hudson

Google it if you don't believe us, but the actress, as well as Halle Berry, has polydactyly meaning a sixth toe on one foot.

Celebrity Mutants: Benedict Cumberbatch

Another star with multi-colored eyes, though, his are referred to as central heterochromia and sectoral heterochromia. The inner parts are gold/green; the outer parts are blue; there's also a section of brown in his right eye.
