Linda Hamilton wide jaw

The famous Terminator actress is renown for her square jaw. Still, when you look carefully, the jaw isn’t particularly square from the profile. A B minus at most. From the front the jaw angles are jutting because of well developed masseter muscle.
Her overall traits are massive. For reasons other than her jaw angle (nose, upper lip, skin…), I do not find her particularly feminine. There are women with much squarer jaws that are more feminine.

All of our jaws should look like this, with the mandible sitting forward, full lips, open airway, etc.

Even this is highly deviant from an ancestral perspective. Her mandible is nowhere near at a 90 degree angle to her ramus, but decidedly obtuse.

Note how the mandible has grown in accommodation to the maxilla. Her lip shape is affected by her maxillary deficiency. Note the inferiority of the top lip to the bottom. Nose is also affected, and hence not upturned. The airway is marginally constricted. (Could she breathe completely silently?) Perhaps this… Read more »
