What trait does actress Jane Seymour share with Dan Aykroyd? Other than Ashton Kutcher, what do Mila Kunis and Demi Moore have in common? As it turns out, each of these celebs (as well as quite a few others) have a condition called heterochromia; in other words, their eyes are two different colors.

For those who love to follow the lives of Hollywood's rich and famous, this unique trait is simply one more thing that makes stars interesting and fun to watch. Here's a look at a few celebrities whose fame is enhanced by their different-colored baby blues…and greens, and browns, and hazels.

Aside from her roles in "Men in Black III," "Entourage," and the upcoming "Star Trek" film, actress Alice Eve is known for her startling beauty. Her right eye is green, while her left eye is a stunning light blue. Another striking example of the blue/green mix is actor Josh Henderson, who's appeared in TV shows like "Dallas" and the "90210" reboot. In his case, it's the left eye that's a vivid green, while his right is blue.

Mila Kunis, recently named Sexiest Woman Alive by Esquire magazine, was born with one brown eye and one blue-green eye. Looks like Ashton Kutcher finds the trait attractive, since his former flame Demi Moore also has heterochromia. Though it's less noticeable, Moore's right eye is hazel, while her left eye is green.

"Dr. Quinn, Medicine Woman" star Jane Seymour has one brown eye and one hazel eye; we wonder if Dr. Mike ever diagnosed her own condition. Actor Dan Aykroyd of "Ghostbusters" fame has the same color combo, but in opposite eyes.

One of the best known actresses with heterochromia is Kate Bosworth of "Superman Returns" and "Blue Crush." The blonde beauty, who recently announced her engagement to Michael Polish, has one blue eye and one brown eye. New mom Elizabeth Berkley, who gave birth to son Sky on July 20, also has one brown eye and one blue eye.

Quite a few other celebs have less noticeable or partial heterochromia. A few notable names are Wentworth Miller, Virginia Madsen, Kiefer Sutherland, Simon Pegg, Jonathan Rhys Meyers, and Henry Cavill, all of whom prove that matching is overrated and part of being sexy is being unique.
