So I've been reading stuff on facial reading out of boredom, and I came across the term, "sanpaku", which some of you may know.

Sanpaku gan (三白眼) or Sanpaku (三白) is a Japanese term that means “three whites” and is generally referred to in English as "Sanpaku eyes". (wikipedia) There's mixed impressions on sanpaku; some people consider it a bad thing while some people consider it a unique gift of beauty and personality.

I'm not entirely sure which well known celebrities have it, but some of the major old ones are John F Kennedy, Abraham Lincoln, and Princess Diana.

Can you guys list some people with sanpaku? How to identify:
1. If they have three visible whites in their eyes, it's sanpaku. "Three whites" mean that the pupil sort of floats in the white. More often than not, the white will be at the bottom.
2. Find a picture and ensure that the person isn't looking up, because everyone technically has a sanpaku when looking up.
3. Make sure they're not opening their eyes really wide on purpose.
#2 and 3 are key.

Some brief ones I can identify:

Yamapi - minor one

Miyavi -small one

I really haven't been able to find one from female celebrities other than Paris Hilton.

I can't say I've ever heard of this before, and I haven't looked out for it on celebrities, so I don't know of any, male or female. I just checked myself in the mirror, and I have them, I think.

Anna Gunn plays Skyler White on Breaking Bad. She's got sanpaku. I think in her case, as well as with a lot of people who have it, their eyelids (in her case only on the right side) just aren't very big on the bottom. She may look like she's opening her eyes extra wide, but that's just how she is. I would also say she is a beautiful woman and the sanpaku may even contribute. It doesn't seem to take away from her beauty, anyway.
