Celebrities are rich, wealthy individuals who have achieved enough fame to get away with even the strangest things. What some people may regard as weird and annoying can suddenly become cute and adorable if the quirks happen to be part of a popular person’s personality.
These seemingly strange behaviors actually make these famous people normal. They have peculiar habits just like the rest of us, albeit, some of their habits are a lot more expensive than ours. Here now are some of the strange and bizarre quirks of rich and famous celebrities.
8 Pamela Anderson
Pamela Anderson is an actress and model from Canada. A former Playmate of the Month for Playboy magazine in February 1990, she first appeared in the Tim Allen-starrer comedy hit show called Home Improvement. Her stock rose exponentially after she became a regular in the television series about lifeguards called Baywatch where she appeared with David Hasselhoff. She was also married to rock star Tommy Lee, the drummer of the band called Motley Crue. Anderson is also a vegetarian who has appeared in commercials promoting animal rights and welfare through the organization called PETA.
With her extremely sexy body, you would think that Anderson would be comfortable with her look and appearance. However, despite the fact that she knows that millions of people have already ogled her body, she is still not comfortable looking at herself in the mirror. Anderson is an eisoptrophobic, which means that she cannot look at herself in mirrors for fear that it might reflect her soul. Her own reflection freaks her out, even though millions of men have been more than satisfied with her especially after her sex tape with Lee was leaked to the public.
7 Megan Fox
Megan Fox is an actress and model that first drew attention through the television series called Hope & Faith. She was also in the Lindsay Lohan-starrer called Confessions of a Teenage Drama Queen. Her sexy turn in the movie Transformers opposite Shia LaBeouf was what caught the eye of the public. She was also part of the sequel called Transformers: Revenge of the Fallen. Considered as a modern sex symbol, she has appeared in FHM and Maxim.
Being a celebrity means having to go to different places to do promotional appearances. This is where the problem comes in, as Fox has a fear of flying. It is a good thing that it is not the kind of phobia that cannot be overcome. All she has to do is listen to the music of Britney Spears and she will be good to go.
6 Kim Kardashian
Kim Kardashian is an actress and celebrity known for her reality television shows and soap opera life. She once grabbed the world’s attention after a high-profile marriage to Kris Humphries, an NBA basketball player. The two got divorced after just a couple of months. Kardashian was also involved in a sex tape scandal with a former boyfriend. She sued and got millions as her share of the tape’s profits.
She is now with rap and hip-hop star Kanye West. Kardashian, however, is notoriously finicky when it comes to hygiene. The couple spent $750,000 for four gold-plated toilets in their luxury house in Bel Air. She also had a self-flushing toilet installed for $100,000.
5 Nicole Kidman
Nicole Kidman is an Australian actress who had her breakthrough role in the 1989 film called Dead Calm. She used to be married to superstar Tom Cruise, with whom she appeared with in Days of Thunder. She won an Oscar for Best Actress in 2002 for The Hours. She has also gotten acclaim for her roles in Moulin Rouge!, Eyes Wide Shut, Cold Mountain and Rabbit Hole.
She is now married to country superstar Keith Urban. For all her achievements, however, Kidman has failed to conquer one thing: her fear of butterflies. Not that she hasn’t tried; she once went to the American Museum of Natural History to try to overcome her fear, but she couldn’t go all the way.
4 Jennifer Lopez
Jennifer Lopez has conquered the movies through Selena, music through her various hit songs, and television through her role as a judge in the reality singing competition called American Idol. She has been in high-profile relationships with the likes of Ben Affleck, Marc Anthony and Sean Combs. She is also the object of desire of millions of men around the world.
Her amazing butt may have something to do with that. She has taken good care of it, even insuring it for $27 million. She also brings along a gem-encrusted toilet cover worth $105,000 everywhere she goes. The cover was a gift from Affleck.
3 Katy Perry
Katy Perry has been a prominent part of the music scene ever since she came up with songs like “I Kissed a Girl” and “Hot and Cold.” She cemented her popularity with follow-ups like “Firework,” “Last Friday Night” and “California Gurls.”
When she acknowledges the compliments, she makes sure that she has pearly white teeth to show when she smiles. Inspired by the healthy set of Britney Spears, Perry always brings along several toothbrushes and brushes six times a day.
2 Donald Trump
Donald Trump is one of the richest men in the world. He has proven to be a success not only in business but also on television, famously firing people in the reality contest called The Apprentice.
Trump does not mingle that much with other people, but it’s not because he looks down at them. He actually has this fear of picking up germs, which is why he doesn’t shake hands often. The germaphobe even refuses to push buttons in the elevator, sanitizing his hands several times each day.
1 Oprah Winfrey
Winfrey is conversant with just about any topic. Just make sure not to bring along a chewing gum, which is something that she absolutely abhors. Her loathing of gums started in her childhood as her grandmother would always stick chewing gum to furniture. She has banned the item in her studio.
