You might be thinking that celebrities like Mila Kunis and Taylor Swift spend all their time either working tirelessly on their demanding careers or maybe living generously in their multi-million dollar mansions. However, that’s not always the case.
A lot of the super famous people do enjoy the same recreational pleasures and simple pastimes as us ordinary people. While others, like Kate Moss and Justin Bieber, not to mention Angelina Jolie are enjoying hobbies that are more in keeping with their status and personalities, such as extravagant and scandalous. Have a look at these 12 celebrities with strange hobbies for yourself.
12. Jerry Seinfeld – Strange hobby: Collecting Porsches
It takes a decent pile of money to afford a hobby like Jerry Seinfeld, which is why it’s a good thing he’s super (even super-duper) rich. Collecting stamps or antiques is not well enough for this celebrity. Jerry Seinfeld is a car collector. And not just any cars. In fact, he collects Porsches. Yes, that’s right, Porsches. He likes to have a constant stable of around 20, but it is said that he also goes over that brand when he feels like it.
While Simon Cowell may have built a reputation for being hard-boiled and super serious. However, when he’s not working in front of cameras or backstage, he reverts to more childish pleasures. “I climb trees every day. It’s like a ritual,” he told GQ magazine. Meanwhile, something else that’s also like a ritual for Simon is his morning cartoons.
“I like cartoons every morning. I like ‘The Flintstones,’ ‘The Jetsons,’ all the old ones. I watch them in the morning to get me in a good mood.” Good mood?! Maybe he should watch them throughout the day to keep the good vibes going. Stay tuned for more celebrity strange hobbies.
Love him or hate him, praise him or trash him, Justin Bieber has more skills than you might know. In fact, when he’s not on stage and has a few minutes to spare, he might fill them with his Rubik’s Cube hobby. Indeed, he only needs a few minutes, as he can seemingly solve the challenging puzzle in less than two minutes. Now THAT is talent!
You may think Mila Kunis spends her free time being hot and adorable and super cool – which we can be sure she does – but you would never guess that she spends her time as a gamer, but yes, she does. She’s an extreme fan of video games, specifically World of Warcraft. In fact, she claims to be an avid gamer and that she has to check herself and be careful how long she plays and even limit herself when necessary.
One of Hollywood’s current crisp hotties, Colin Farrell has established his mark with his dark good looks and delicious Irish accent, but did you know he also dances? Colin Farrell likes to spend his free time line dancing, so just imagine him grooving on the dance floor – to the beat, of course. In case they doubt his skills, he even used to be a line dancing instructor, so he clearly has some smooth moves.
While Kate Moss may be very well known as a supermodel on the catwalk and endless print campaigns, she may not be considered a star in the water too much. However, she and top model colleague Naomi Campbell, along with musician Jamie Hince all enjoy indulging in swimming…synchronized swimming to be precise.
Apparently, the group once traveled to Phuket, Thailand for a week to train for synchronized swimming. “The only blip that night was at midnight when a slightly drunk Kate tried to jump back into the pool for an improvised solo performance. Her boyfriend Jamie Hince had to physically stop her.” Stay tuned for more celebrity strange hobbies.
Some people might consider getting their private parts waxed a very necessary evil, though for an actress like Eva Longoria it’s something more than just grooming, in fact, it’s a hobby. She apparently likes to spend her free time making sure she’s in tip-top shape down there, by getting a full Brazilian wax and thus the style of her choice for her private parts.
While Claudia Schiffer is famous for her beauty and style, she’s not much for icky things like bugs. In fact, though, the supermodel is an insect enthusiast and seemingly has quite a collection of deceased creepy crawlies. Moreover, that’s not the only way in which her love for the tiny creepers is exposed. Apparently, she is also fond of paintings of insects. Different things to different people, or whatever. But still, ew.
Well, it might not be a completely strange hobby – at least for old grandmothers or modern enthusiasts – but it is somehow surprising for someone like David Arquette, who apparently loves knitting. Do you think he prefers to sew sweaters, scarves, or something larger like a whole blanket? Stay tuned for more celebrity strange hobbies.
Angelina Jolie has an strange hobby that perfectly fits her. Well, she has a collection of daggers. Of course she does, doesn’t she! Moreover, this is nothing new for the mega star. “My mother used to take me to buy my first daggers when I was 11 or 12.” And you don’t have to worry about where they’ll go once she’s gone.
In fact, it’s a hobby she’s passed on. “I’ve bought a few daggers for Maddox as well. In fact, we take him to a special store.” Seriously, the only weird thing here is how normal it actually is. One couldn’t blame them if they were thinking she was collecting something clearly distinctly more bizarre. And who knows? Maybe she does.
Quentin Tarantino is some other star who likes to spend his time and money collecting stuff. However, his interests aren’t in daggers or vermin or even expensive cars. It is retro television board games that spark his interest, like his award-winning version of the “I Dream of Jeannie” board game. Try just imagining Taranino twitching his nose to conjure up a win. Stay tuned for more celebrity strange hobbies.
While Taylor Swift may need to polish up her image sometimes, she generally maintains her super cute, wholesome image, and in fact, one of her hobbies is a perfect fit for the incredibly saccharine singer. When the vacations come and she takes a break from the stage and the spotlight, Taylor and her friends team up to make homemade snow globes. Adorable!
