Nicole Kidman, Emily Blunt and other stars who suffered from stuttering and you didn't know it
Stuttering is caused by overexcitation of the speech and emotional center of the brain. This has a serious impact on self-esteem and interaction with others. The more a person stutters, the more agitated they become and this makes it even more difficult for them to pronounce anything.
There are quite a few celebrities who had speech problems as children or even adults. Some of them managed to overcome it, while others turned it into a spectacular feature. Read OBOZREVATEL material for more details.
