The Strangest Celebrity Habits In Hollywood
When you've got money to blow, sports cars and swimming pools must get old. These stars have tried everything from nibbling on insects to using facial treatments mixed with real bird crap (freaking celebrities, seriously).
Of course, we all have our weird habits. Read on to see which celebrities have uttered theirs to the world.
Tom Cruise's Peculiar Facials
The uguisu no fun is a facial treatment that makes use of the droppings of the Japanese bush warbler. It's no new thing, either; the ingredient has been used since ancient times.
Tom Cruise counts himself among many celebrities who have used this poop-infused treatment, which is said to whiten skin and treat hyperpigmentation.
Demi Moore's Little Leeches
Leeches are used as medical devices to aid in plastic surgery recovery, but they don't remove toxins from blood as promised by beauty treatments.
Doesn't matter to Demi Moore. She was very satisfied with her leech therapy experience. “I feel like I’ve always been someone looking for the cutting edge of things that optimize your health and healing,” she told David Letterman.
Angelina Jolie's Bite-Sized Bugs
This is admittedly not the weirdest thing in the world. Insects are commonly eaten in a normal diet everywhere from Thailand to Latin America.
Jolie and her sons have snacked on crickets for quite some time now.
Teri Hatcher's Boozy Baths
Actress Teri Hatcher has topped her baths off with a glass of red wine. Nope, not to drink—she pours the wine straight into the tub water.
This might not be a bad idea because it turns the water a gorgeous pinkish purple.
Katy Perry's Dental Regimen
A close source told the Daily Star that Katy Perry brushes her teeth up to six times per day to keep cavities away. She reportedly carries up to 2o toothbrushes in a travel case. That's probably the healthiest habit here!
Jessica Simpson's Atypical Nicotine Addiction
Jessica Simpson once told Jay Leno that she's addicted to chewing Nicorette gum, despite having never smoked cigarettes. "It was like a party in my mouth," she said when describing her first time chewing the gum.
Sandra Bullock And Hemorrhoid Cream
This wasn't just a scene in Miss Congeniality. Actress Sandra Bullock does use Preparation H hemorrhoid cream to reduce inflammation and redness under her eyes.
Lady Gaga's Egg Vessel
It's no secret that Lady Gaga is eccentric as hell. Remember the egg-vessel-thing that she hatched out of at the 2011 Grammys? She told David Letterman that she took quite a liking to it.
“It’s a place where I can meditate and experience rebirth,” she said. “So I just get inside of it and close it, and then when I feel that I have been reborn spiritually, I just, whoo, come out.”
Mariah's Purple Produce Diet
Mariah Carey reportedly shed post-pregnancy baby weight through a purple food diet. According to Star magazine, Carey spends three days each week eating plums, grapes, eggplants, and more.
Stephen King's Cheesecake Ritual
Award-winning author Stephen King sits down with a slice of cheesecake each time he writes.
"I have a son who swears by creme bruleé and always eats it before he writes. For me, it's cheesecake," he told Bon Appétitmagazine.
Cameron Diaz has said that she's obsessive-compulsive and washes her hands multiple times each day. She's also said that she opens doors with her elbows.
Catherine Zeta-Jones' Food Beauty
Catherine Zeta-Jones uses homegrown products in her beauty routine. She's said that she eats an apple or strawberries after a meal to keep her teeth clean. She also washes her hair with a treatment made from beer and honey.
Christian Bale Is Anti-Superstitious
Dark Knight actor Christian Bale has said that he seeks to challenge superstitions by walking under ladders and the like. He's said his lucky number is 13, as that was his age when Steven Spielberg cast him in Empire of the Sun.
Pamela's Mirror Phobia
The Baywatch star has said she's not got a phobia of mirrors.
"And I don't watch myself on television," she told the Daily Mail. "If anything comes on, I make them shut it off or I leave the room."
Wayne Rooney Falls Asleep To The Vacuum
English soccer player Wayne Rooney has said that he needs the sound of a vacuum cleaner in order to fall asleep. When that fails, he resorts to other measures. "I've ruined so many hairdryers by letting them burn out," he told the Daily Mail.
Simon Cowell, Tree Climber
Simon Cowell's favorite hobbies include climbing trees. "It’s like a ritual," he told reporters. He's said that climbing up a tree helps him relax.
Britney's A Nail Biter
Britney Spears counts herself among the many who bite and chew at their fingernails. It's easy to find photos of her hands with her nails bitten all the way down.
Halle Berry Bites Her Lips
"I have a bad habit of chewing my lips and without something on there, I just chew them off," Halle Berry told the Huffington Post. "I need some sort of moisture there, whether it be a lip balm or lip color."
