1.Martin Scorsese

Martin is one of the best directors of all time, but he is also asthmatic. In actual fact he says it probably helped his career as he was forced to stay indoors when others were outside playing. Perhaps we need to be grateful for his asthma.

2.Kareem Abdul Jabbar

Kareem was diagnosed in 2008 with leukemia and even though he announced in 2011 that it was gone he still needs to be careful about his health. He was lucky in being diagnosed early enough for them to successfully treat him.

3.Gwyneth Paltrow

Gwyneth suffers from brittle bone disease and of course that means she needs to be careful with what she is doing or she will need to pay a trip to the hospital. This is something she is actively tackling in order to prevent further problems when she is older.

4.Christy Turlington

This supermodel was one of the biggest names on the catwalk in the 90s. She was a heavy smoker when she was young, but even though she quit when she was 31 it has still left her with chronic lung issues. She was diagnosed with emphysema and also reportedly COPD, so has to live with that for the rest of her life.

5.Kim Kardashian

Kim suffers from psoriasis, which is basically a disease that attacks the immune system all on its own. It specifically goes for the cells and the body can then overproduce them leading to unsightly build ups of skin.

6.RJ Mitte

This great actor actually has a mild form of cerebral palsy, but it is not really enough for it to have a huge impact on his life. However, it was certainly slightly ironic that his biggest role ended up being a character with the disease although worse than what he has.

7.Pamela Anderson

Pamela revealed in 2002 that she was infected with Hepatitis C. She put the blame firmly on Tommy Lee, but by taking care of herself it should not cause any long term problems.

Bret has heart disease and indeed he also has a hole in his heart with this having then led to him having a mini-stroke. He has to take medication to stop the heart disease getting any worse because either that or the stroke can be a killer.
