Whoopi Goldberg hasn't had eyebrows in decades. No one paid attention because Whoopi's missing eyebrows weren't a big priority.

But the internet just noticed, and they're demanding to know why Whoopi's lack of eyebrows managed to escape their scrutiny until now.

No, Whoopi doesn't have a skin disorder and she didn't lose her lashes.

In a 2016 interview with VH1, Whoopi, 65, said she doesn't want hair on her face. So she shaves everything, including her wispy mustache and eyebrows. She even plucks her nose hairs.

It doesn't bother Whoopi that you didn't notice. That's the whole point of her shaving her eyebrows -- so you wouldn't notice.

By the way, eyebrows may seem pointless to people like Whoopi, but they're actually very beneficial to humans.

Eyebrows keep forehead perspiration and rain out of our eyes. They also keep debris such as dirt, dandruff and dust out of our eyes.

Eyebrows also help us communicate our feelings to others. Furrowed eyebrows lets others know you're mad or upset about something. Raised eyebrows could mean you're curious or surprised. And one raised eyebrow means you're ready for a good time.

So don't discount the lowly eyebrow as insignificant. God put eyebrows on your face for a good reason.
