The “Actresses Without Teeth” Tumblr blog was launched on March 26th, 2013, with the first post featuring a photoshopped picture of actress Julia Roberts from the 2009 romantic spy film Duplicity without her upper teeth (shown below). Within eight days, the post received over 400 notes.
The humorous concept of masking a specific facial feature in celebrity photos was introduced through the Tumblr blog Celebrities Without Eyebrows in December 2009. The earliest known photoshopped instance of a teeth-less celebrity photo was submitted two years later on December 22nd, 2011 to the /r/WTF subreddit, featuring actor Arnold Schwarzenegger’s yelling scene from the 1990 comedy film Kindergarten Cop (shown below). Prior to being archived, the post received over 2,100 up votes and 80 comments.
The same day the blog was launched, an Instagram feed was created which reblogged each post, receiving over 6,900 followers in eight days. On March 27th, 2013, the blog was highlighted on several Internet news sites, including BuzzFeed, Laughing Squid and Mashable. On the following day, the Internet news blog UpRoxx published a slideshow of notable examples from the series. On March 29th, 2013, Redditor obie22 submitted an image combining four examples from the Actresses Without Teeth blog to the /r/funny subreddit, where it received more than 23,800 up votes and 730 comments in the following five days.
