Remember the days when people were simply known as having high foreheads? Now foreheads have morphed into fiveheads. Simply stated by Urban Dictionary, "It's too big to be a four head, so we call it a five head."
Some celebrities on this list include: Angelina Jolie, Nicole Kidman, Clint Eastwood, and Ted Danson. Surprisingly, Jay Leno did not make the cut, although most of his distorted head size rests mainly on his chin.
An interesting example is Albert Einstein, who was born with an unusually large head which troubled his mother; however, he eventually grew into it. According to Molly Edmonds from Discovery Health, "Einstein had a perfectly normal-size brain, but certain parts of it were larger than normal, including the inferior parietal region, which affects mathematical thought."
Unfortunately, there is also no link between high foreheads and intelligence. As a fellow fivehead, I was hoping to find a hidden power that I kept covered under my bangs.
Last week Saturday Night Live featured a take-off on the Lawrence Welk show with the fictional singing group The Merrill Sisters. In the sketch Kristen Wiig plays the deranged member of the group who is at least a six head, and has deformed baby hands. At the end of the number when her character has run wild, Fred Armisen says in his best Welk voice, "Is it me or could you show a movie on that girl's forehead?"
