20 Celebrities With Strange Obsessions
by Sierra Burgos
If you’ve ever seen the TV show “My Strange Addiction,” then you know how ridiculous some people’s obsessions can be. But hey, everyone has their weird tendencies—even celebrities. Which hot actress was so addicted to World of Warcraft, she had to delete it from her computer?
Ansel Elgort’s Rug Obsession
“I’m serious about rugs.” Who would’ve guessed that TFIOS hunk Ansel Elgort would be obsessed with… rugs? Apparently he is a big fan of purchasing handmade floor dressings from heirloom rugs. Maybe he’ll take us on a magic carpet ride?
Shay Mitchell’s Hot Sauce Obsession
The PLL star has revealed that she’s a hot sauce addict and carries a bottle in a Ziplock baggie in her purse. She once tweeted, “I got hot sauce in my bag. Swag,” quoting Beyoncé. Makes sense, since the girl is hot, hot, hot!
Anna Kendrick’s Angry Birds Obsession
Sure, we all enjoy hurling an Angry Bird at a tower of pigs every once in awhile. But for Anna Kendrick, “every once in awhile” isn’t enough. She has claimed to play continuously for several hours—every day. And it’s not just Angry Birds. Online games and applications have this Pitch Perfect star addicted to technology. In 2011, Kendrick said, “I have like 3 stars on every level. It’s disgusting how much I play that game. It’s not like ‘Oh, what level am I on,’ It’s like ‘Do I need therapy to break myself from playing Angry Birds?'”
Cheryl Cole’s Carrot Juice Obsession
Cheryl Cole’s eyesight must be off the charts amazing, because she consumes multiple glasses of carrot juice a day. It’s no wonder she has such beautiful hair, nails and skin. Carrots are full of Vitamin A, which is great for your skin and prevents dryness, amongst several other health benefits. Maybe we’ll give the carrot juice addiction a try.
Jesse Eisenberg’s Cat Obsession
Calling all cat-lovers: Jesse Eisenberg is cute, single, and very much a cat person. Known for playing Mark Zuckerberg in The Social Network, the adorably geeky actor has admitted to having over 40 cats. He once told Conan O’Brien that he feels guilty about his fame and fortune and wants to share the wealth, so he adopts stray cats into his home and cares for them. His apartment is rumored to be entirely devoted to feline paraphernalia.
Megan Fox’s Shoe Obsession
The Transformers hottie supposedly has a mad shoe addiction and can’t help splurging on expensive footwear. She admitted that her first purchase after her big Transformers payday was a pair of $600 Roberto Cavalli heels. Can you blame the girl?
Robert Pattinson’s Diet Coke Obsession
Turns out the vampire has a sweet tooth. Robert Pattinson, best known for his role in the Twilight series, allegedly once drank 300 cans of Diet Coke in one week—that’s 43 cans a day! (Okay, so maybe it’s a myth). In addition to his Diet Coke addiction, Pattinson also loves Cinnamon Toast Crunch cereal and eats it constantly. Sure, that’s a lot of sugar, but at least he’s addicted to soda and cereal rather than blood. #TeamRob
Ozzy Osbourne’s Cereal Obsession
Speaking of cereal, Ozzy Osbourne is also an avid cereal lover, and has confessed to obsessing over the cereal Sugar Puffs. England is the only country that produces Sugar Puffs, so the famous singer has them imported. And, he’s got ins with the manufacturer. Apparently he has his own personal account with Honey Monster Foods, the company that produces the cereal, so he’s never running low on its sugary goodness.
Avril Lavigne’s Eyeliner Obsession
The punk princess and “Sk8r Boy” singer has admitted to having an addiction to eye makeup. She’s very fond of her favorite product, eyeliner, and won’t go anywhere without piling it on her lids. Lavigne says that she feels more naked without eye makeup than she does without clothes, and her obsession has lasted for years. Her own fans probably wouldn’t recognize her sans smokey eye and eyeliner.
Salma Hayek’s Breastfeeding Obsession
Yep, you read that right. Salma Hayek is addicted to breastfeeding. When her daughter was born, she was quoted saying that she “couldn’t stop breastfeeding.” Hayek garnered media attention when she breastfed a child that wasn’t hers in Africa. She said, “I don’t care if I cry. I don’t care if I’m fat. I’m just going to do it for one more week, one more month.” If this isn’t obsession, then we don’t know what is.
Jack Black’s Green Tea Obsession
Back in 2008, Jack Black became a heavy drinker… of green tea! Before he fancied tea, he admitted being addicted to online gaming, smoking and drinking. Looks like he found a better option. After the birth of his second son, he decided to trade in his other habits for a less damaging one. The Kung Fu Panda would be proud.
Katy Perry’s Toothbrushing Obsession
Of all the obsessions that celebrities could have, this one isn’t that bad. Katy Perry is so scared of cavities and fillings that she brushes her teeth a minimum of six times in a day. She keeps plenty of new toothbrushes around just in case. What she doesn’t like is her bottom row of teeth, which she once called “the bane of [her] beauty existence.” At least she knows they’re clean.
Kristin Chenoweth’s Quarter-Collecting Obsession
Kristin Chenoweth admitted on an episode of Ellen that she is obsessed with collecting quarters. She said maybe it stems from her early days as an actress when she needed to constantly save quarters for laundry. Chenoweth claims that her house and even her car is full of quarters. She also admitted that she cleans each one of them with Purell.
Jason Segel’s Puppet Obsession
Just in case other celebrities’ obsessions with carrot juice, cats, or breastfeeding aren’t strange enough for you, consider Jason Segel’s borderline scary obsession with puppets. He says his L.A. home is “packed with puppets. Like, everywhere.” He even has a puppet of himself. Segel told The Guardian, “Thank God there’s a context. Otherwise I’d be an unemployed man with a house of full of puppets. That would be terrifying.” Oh, Jason. It’s still pretty terrifying.
Emma Stone’s iCarly Obsession
On The Tonight Show, Emma Stone admitted that she’s addicted to the show “iCarly,” and confessed that she had seen “like every episode.” Luckily for her, she got to appear in an episode where she played a crazy iCarly superfan.
Mila Kunis’ World of Warcraft Obsession
That’s right—Mila Kunis, Hollywood hottie, would rather level up her paladin than attend an A-list party. Millions of people are addicted to the online lifestyle that World of Warcraft offers, but we were surprised to hear that Mila is one of those people. In an interview with MTV, Kunis confessed that her obsession got so bad, she had to remove the game from her computer.
Kristen Bell’s Sloth Obsession
When her husband Dax Shepard surprised her with a sloth on her birthday, the Bad Moms actress bawled out of pure excitement. Kristen Bell appeared on The Ellen Show, where she talked about her insane love for sloths and shared video footage of her birthday meltdown. The producers of the animated comedy Zootopia saw Bell’s Ellen episode and decided to ask if she’d be willing to voice Priscilla the sloth—even though the character only spoke two words. “The answer came back within two to three minutes, yes,” said casting director Jamie Sparer Roberts. “It was the quickest deal ever made in Hollywood.”
Paris Hilton’s Skydiving Obsession
If the words Paris Hilton and obsession are in the same sentence, we immediately think of shopping, having sex, or looking in the mirror. But the young socialite confessed a different addiction—skydiving. Paris has said that the rush is “better than sex” and “it’s like driving in [her] convertible times 1000!” Although it’s an expensive hobby, she’s been skydiving over 10 times and doesn’t plan on stopping anytime soon.
Scarlett Johansson’s Buffalo Wings Obsession
It’s hard to believe after watching her kick ass as Black Widow in The Avengers, but ScarJo is a buffalo wings addict. “Oh my god [I am obsessed] with buffalo chicken wings… You will have to roll me down the red carpet next time you see me,” the actress told FOX411’s Pop Tarts column. “I can’t stop eating them, I just can’t get enough.” Now that’s she’s off of her strict Avengers diet, Johansson can finally eat all the buffalo wings she wants.
Nicole Kidman’s Cake Obsession
Most models and actresses try to avoid calorie-loaded confections, but not Nicole Kidman. Despite her slim figure, she’s a full-blown cake addict. “I can’t have a piece of cake every single night—but I can have a piece of cake three or four nights a week! I eat healthily, but I also love pies and chocolate,” she gushed. No fair, the cake diet never worked for us.
