19. Eeeeeeehhhh mouth: Slightly parted lips that look as though they should be accompanied by finger guns. See Christian Bale in American Psycho. -- meh

14. The Lip Bite: See Kristen Stewart. -- Brittany

13. The Kidman: Once an actor has lost all ability to move their forehead due to Botox injections, she over-compensates by making their eyes go all bulgy and wide and spends virtually the entire film talking in a loud whisper (possibly to soften the harsh effect of the rest of their face). -- Ashley
