Some celebs have developed the weirdest of quirks, the strangest of obsessions or the strangest of habits! But we bet that you are not shocked by this revelation!
Normal people like us may wonder what is the reason behind these fetishes and the very first reason, that we may come up with, is the millions of bucks that they have at their disposal feeling that they can probably get away with being weird!
From celebs like Nicolas Cage to Marlo Brando, all have something in common, a strange quirk to share, and thank God for us as it is very interesting to read!
And to be honest, knowing all these about certain celebs and big names can only make us feel better about ourselves!
Read on to find out more about celebs with the strangest obsessions!
“Find a penny, pick it up. All-day long, you’ll have good luck.”
A saying that Tony-Winning actress and singer may have taken too much at heart, as the actress has quite a collection of quarters and is even scared of ever having to go without.
However, since she is aware that coins are most likely to be infested with germs, she considers it a priority to sanitize them and takes them all one by one, until she is sure they are bacteria-free.
Kristin does not deny the fact that her addiction is indeed strange and weird and while on the show of Ellen Degeneres, the singer claimed: This is not a lie, I’m obsessed with having them, I am obsessed with saving them, I got to have them in my car, I have jars and stash them away…”
Kristin thinks that her obsession over quarters may have started way back during her startup as an actress, when she was required to do her laundry on her own, like a normal person, and was struggling to find change.
We can image how dramatizing this can be, Kristin! – having to do your laundry!
There is nothing worse than not being a regular and waking up feeling bloated, whilst you have to go about your everyday errands, whilst feeling utterly uncomfortable.
Gandhi seemed to have known this all too well and was often characterised as obsessed with poop.
The leader of the Indian National Congress only wanted to make sure that no one had to go through a day without having a bowel movement; thus became one of his major concerns.
The politician would always greet his women followers by asking: Have you had a good bowel movement this morning sisters?
If the answer was negative, Gandhi knew the solution to a cleansed colon and didn’t waste any time.
He would quickly supply them with enemas and even have one for himself!
Over the last decade, more and more people have grown more aware of healthy food and this lifestyle is no exception to celebrities and the most affluent.
We often catch ourselves wondering whether the products we consume are organic, free-range, free of conservatives and even whether there is added sugar in them, and the list goes on.
The Face-Off actor, Nicolas Cage does not carry out his gastronomic decisions based on the aforementioned, on the contrary, he has taken his pickiness with food on to a whole new level.
Cage could have very easily been a vet, as he seems to be familiar with the mating habits of most animals, as he decides to eat only those with the most dignified mating style!
Talk about a fussy eater, right?
According to him: “I think fish are very dignified with sex. So are birds.”, so it’s safe to say that he only lives on fish and poultry.
We can only be sure that he must have given his parents the hardest of times at the table during dinner time and must have thrown major tantrums when they had pork chops or meatloaf on the table!
Katy Perry has an obsession where she wants to keep a piece of other people, and most preferably she wants to have a piece of her fellow-celebs.
To be more precise, the I Kissed A Girl singer, Perry has a vast collection of other celebs’ locks of hair. Some of her celeb-hair-lock collection are Miley Cyrus and Taylor Swift.
The once gospel singer wants to make sure that this weird habit of hers doesn’t look tacky and that is the reason as to why she makes sure to place a bow on each of the locks.
The story came to the surface when the singer admitted that during her first times at the Grammys Awards when sharing a dressing room with Taylor Swift and Miley Cyrus, she asked for their locks and kept them safely in her clutch, the whole night.
Katy is known for her savvy humour and for being outspoken, however, that was one very creepy revelation!
We said share, not scare, Perry!
Miyamoto, Nintendo’s video game designer, is utterly fascinated with numbers and to be more precise, with guessing the length of objects!
He chooses random objects and likes hypothesizing the length of each one of them.
But the game’s designer takes even more thrill out of this procrastination, once he proves him self right. He makes sure he always has a measuring tape with him, which he uses, to check whether his estimation was accurate, or at least very close to being accurate!
Who would think that one of the most respected actors in Hollywood with one of the most elite acting profiles in the filming industry such as Brando would have a quirk?
Well, we’d hate to break the news to you, but indeed he used to have one!
Brando was smitten by insects, but what he was most fond of, was ants, which is sometimes a pure nightmare for the rest of the population.
When the actor was not busy preparing for his roles, Oscar Winner Brando, used to spend hours on end watching those tiny little creatures pacing about and walking up and down his kitchen sink.
We can only picture a very furious Brando, at the sight of a clean kitchen sink, as that only meant that there would be none left for his little fellas to nibble on.
Some celebs like to watch insects walk up and down, whilst some others are more enthusiastic over collecting the dead ones and keeping them in jars.
That is exactly the case of Chris Pratt who is fascinated with dead insects and has a vast collection of them.
But little did we know that a romantic story could spark at the sight of dead insects?
That is exactly what happened with Anna Faris and Chris Pratt, as the Parks and Recreation actor managed to sweep, the Scary Movie actress Anna Faris, off her feet when he showed her his dead bug collection. Geek Alert!
She instantly felt a very strong connection and she was adamant that he was the one for her.
It seems that Pratt knows the way to a woman’s heart, which is a two-lane street. A man can either smitten his woman by jewellery or by dead bugs, as dead bugs jars as we know is the new thing and a true chick magnet! Not!
Motherhood was a real game-changer for the Frida actress, and we don’t just mean routine wise and so on.
Once she gave birth to her little girl Valentina, a new obsession was born as well, as Salma couldn’t get enough of breastfeeding her daughter, reaching the point of becoming dominated by this.
When her daughter reached a certain age, the actress would always postpone the stopping-of-breastfeeding and would often say, that probably the following month would be better to go through with that.
Salma once said that her obsession with breastfeeding took her to a step further as she went on to breastfeed another woman’s baby, in the attempt of satisfying her urge!
Seeing the actress being so obsessed with breastfeeding only caused her husband and French businessman, François-Henri Pinault, to grow more and more concerned about it.
Initially, he thought Salma was just messing with him and he would often brush it off or even laugh it off, but when he realised that Salma was indeed very serious about it, he realised how worrying this was.
And worrying it is!
Awkward Alert at its finest!
The filmmaker legend, Tarantino seems to have an infatuation of his very own, a legend he looks up to who is worth making a shrine for in his house.
Tarantino has an entire shrine dedicated to the Grease star, John Travolta, yes that’s right, we are not joking!
We can only imagine how Travolta may feel about this, either utterly flattered or utterly scared.
His vintage TV and memorabilia of Travolta are on a striking display that only stands out in his house.
What we are not sure of, is whether this obsession over Travolta has grown before Tarantino decided to cast Travolta for his film Pulp Fiction movie, or afterwards?
If Tarantino’s compulsion to John Travolta commenced before the movie… O, boy! It must have been very awkward for poor Travolta.
One of the greatest comedians of all time refused to wear the same pair of socks twice.
He was stashing on brand new pairs of socks which were proven a great annual expensive obsession as he ended up spending thousands of dollars each year to keep up with his compulsion, of putting on a new pair of socks every day.
According to the Cinderfella actor, his obsession had grown over the years due to his very poor startup. Growing up in a poor, yet big household with many siblings, the comedian was forced to wear socks with holes in them.
Once he raised to stardom, he wanted to leave his holed-up-sock days behind him and decided to go overboard with it!
It does not come as a shock, that Bill Gates is one of the greatest philanthropists, a genius and one of the richest men in the world.
However, Bill Gates never ceases to amaze us, as during the start-up of his business he used to memorize all of his employees’ number plates, as a means of keeping track who was leaving and who was coming in the office.
This was probably his very own unique metric of performance and productivity, as he was able to distinguish who stayed late working and who was already set to leave once the clock struck 6!
We are sure this habit of his, belongs in the past, as the mogul Microsoft offices now, do not let him keep track of his employee’s license plate numbers.
One will say that all technology savvy people may come out as eccentric and to be honest, this theory has been proven right!
Facebook CEO who is worth a striking amount of money, is committed to self-evolving, self-improving and assigns new commitments to himself every year – that explains the creation of his empire!
One of his New Year Resolutions in 2011 was to continue his carnivore habits, as he was devoted to eating the meat out of the animals he killed himself. So weird, right?
According to him, since he is a firm believer of healthy dieting, he wanted to monitor the procedures on his own, as a means of ensuring he and his family would eat healthily.
Zuckerberg has a stockbreeding where he slaughters the animals and he even has his personal butcher to whom he has assigned the responsibility of smoothly preparing the slaughtering procedure.
Zuckerberg’s strange habits don’t end here, as he has grown obsessed with not wasting any part of the animals and has a collection of chicken feet!
