Did You Know?
The trick where Mischa Barton threaded a length of dental floss through the hole in her pierced ear, tied it in a knot and then pulled it out without ripping her earlobe was originally performed by Jane Curtin on a 1990 Penn & Teller TV special. In order to perform the trick, Mischa had to have her ears pierced especially a few weeks beforehand. Having kept them pierced for the photo-shoot for her 2005/6 Accessorize advertising campaign, she then let them heal up again, and didn't get them re-pierced until 2009. See more
