Celebrity A-listers seem to have the world at their fingertips when it comes to food. Restaurants roll out the red carpet to have them seen dining on their signature cuisine, and money is no object in finding the best cuts of meat or most lavish seafood dishes. Since celebrities have the ability to travel all around the world, they are able to fully indulge in authentic cuisine in the most beautiful places all over the globe.
However, not everyone is dining on grass-fed beef and the finest lobster. Celebrity often comes with a certain eccentricity that goes with the territory. Tom Cruise is famous for being a little out there when it comes to his Scientology beliefs and lifestyle choices. Prior to Katie Holmes giving birth to their first child, he gave an interview with GQ magazine saying he thought the placenta and umbilical cord would be “very nutritious.” While he later recanted the statement, and said he was only saying it in jest, the public wondered if he really was kidding. Known for outlandish behavior, we didn’t put it past him to do something like that behind closed doors.
Yet, there are many celebrities that aren’t just joking around about their over-the-top eating habits. Whether introduced to new types of cuisine through their world travels, just trying out the latest food trend for increased health and beauty, or just craving comfort foods from home, check out our list of the 13 strangest eating habits of A-list celebrities and see if you’d be willing to try out something more adventurous in the culinary world.

1 Salma Hayek -
In 2007, Salma Hayek appeared on The Ellen DeGeneres Show and promoted the show, Have You Seen This. During the promo, Ellen brought out a Mexican delicacy that Hayek seemed absolutely thrilled to explain. The delicacy was crickets from Oaxaca. During the segment, she slathered some guacamole on a tortilla, and loaded it up with crickets (you need the guacamole otherwise the crickets will slide off the tortilla). When the audience started to cringe, Hayek said, “They’re really good! You guys have to be more daring! You don’t know what you’re missing!” Proving it wasn’t just a one-time thing, she posted an Instagram video in 2015 showing herself chomping down on a cricket and absolutely loving it!
