There have been a lot of rumors about Seal’s scars. Some thought that they’re tribal ritual scars. While others believed that they were the result of some horrible accident.
However, none of those rumors are correct. The singer-songwriter has scars on his face because he suffered from Discoid Lupus Erythematosus as a child.

5: Keanu Reeves
Keanu’s abdominal scar came from a motorcycle accident in Topanga Canyon during a ‘demon ride’ with no headlights. He collided with a mountain, resulting in a week-long hospital stay for broken ribs and a ruptured spleen. Speaking to Rolling Stone magazine, Keanu explained, “I call that a demon ride… when things are going badly.”
After the crash, he lay on the pavement for thirty minutes, calling for help. A truck even ran over his helmet as he took it off to breathe. Reflecting on the experience, Keanu learned a valuable lesson: “Now I know that if I want to take a demon ride and not die… then I shouldn’t take it.”He confessed to needing a few more ‘demon rides’ and likely having a couple left.
The Imgur user also shared their own scar stories with Bored Panda. They broke their right arm at the age of 10 and later burned their right hand with boiling water while it was in a cast. The resulting scar looks like freckles, and they had to write with their left hand for months.
Regarding their future plans for Imgur posts, Cheesemenolike expressed, “Maybe there will be a next segment soon. I don’t plan to invest a lot of time, just a couple of posts every month or so about various objects when I find the time.”

Scars are a natural part of our body’s healing process.When we sustain a cut or burn, we experience bleeding, and a scab forms to prevent infections.. Beneath the scab, fibroblast cells work to replace it with scar tissue to close the wound quickly, prioritizing functionality over aesthetics. It’s like plugging a leak in a roof during rain – speed matters more than appearance.
