The Bizarre Addictions That Our Favorite Celebs Have Will Make You So Confused

Everyone has a vice. For most of us, it’s coffee, or soda, or some sort of sweets. Maybe the vice is that you watch too much Netflix (it’s understandable), or that you drink way too much carrot juice (looking at you Cheryl Cole).

These are all addictions that normal, non-famous people have. But, what obsessions and addictions do our favorite celebs have? If everyone has their own weird tendencies, what harmless addictions afflict the biggest stars in Hollywood?

Anna Kendrick’s Love For Online Gaming

If you know anything about Anna Kendrick, you’ll know that she’s very quirky and weird, even if she’s extremely talented. She not only has an online gaming obsession, but she loves Angry Birds specifically.

Yes, it’s a bit outdated for her to be loving Angry Birds, but we shouldn’t knock her for it. Kendrick says that she plays continuously for hours almost every day. It’s an addiction that she can’t seem to kick and is even a little bit worried about.

Jack Black’s Spilling The Tea


If people had to guess what Jack Black was addicted to, the answers would be all over the place, from drugs to video games and everything in between. But, it turns out his addiction is a lot more normal than you would think.

After the birth of his son, he became addicted to drinking green tea. He says that he has a very addictive personality and cannot stop binge drinking it. The weird part? He only likes ICED green tea. Gross.

Salma Hayek’s Addiction To Breastfeeding


Salma Hayek has quite an interesting addiction. She’s fully admitted to being addicted to breastfeeding. When you read that, you probably have just as many questions as the rest of us.

When her daughter was born, she said that she couldn’t believe how much she enjoyed breastfeeding. It’s all Salma wanted to do. She even breastfed a child that wasn’t hers during a goodwill tour to Africa. She compared her addiction to that of drugs and alcohol.

Avril Lavigne’s Eye Makeup Obsession


It probably isn’t all that surprising that Avril Lavigne is addicted to eye makeup. She says that her addiction lasted for many years and she felt naked without having any on in public.

She wore so much eye makeup that she was basically unrecognizable without it. That’s a fact that speaks to her addiction more than anything else. She takes the term “smoky eye” to a whole other level. She has been branded the “Goth Princess.”

Ozzy Osborne And Sugar Puffs

Ozzy Osborne’s addiction makes him seem like a 10-year-old stuck in an older adult’s body. The famous singer is so addicted to Sugar Puffs that he pays to have them imported from England, the only country that produces them.

It seems that he’s traded his addiction to drugs and alcohol in for an addiction to sugar. In his case, the trade isn’t so bad going from one white powder to another, less dangerous, white powder.

Robert Pattinson’s Diet Coke Obsession

He’s best known for his role in the Twilight movies, but he’s also one of Coca Cola’s most dedicated customers. There was one week he was shooting a movie where it was said he crushed nearly 300 cans of Diet Coke.

Think about that, it means he was drinking a Coke every second of every day that week. Even if that’s an exaggeration, he admits that he has a bad addiction to the soft drink and needs to settle down.

Ben Affleck’s Gambling Addiction

It’s not all that bad to want to go gambling every now and then, but when it turns into a serious addiction, it’s not good. His close friends say that he gambles nearly four nights a week.

They say that he spends upwards of $20,000 each night, which isn’t much to him considering how much he makes per movie, but it’s still a lot. He has lost as much as $500,000 in a single night in Las Vegas.

Megan Fox’s Shoe Obsession

Having a shoe obsession isn’t all that weird. But, the point at which Megan Fox’s obsession transcends takes everything to a different level.

Her first big purchase after she was cast in the Transformers movie was shoes that cost her nearly $700. She now has hundreds of shoes in her closet that one can only imagine is the size of Houston by this point. She says she will ALWAYS be obsessed with the fabric that hugs her feet.

Jesse Eisenberg’s Stray Cats

If you’re a cat lover, you’re probably going to fall more in love with Jesse Eisenberg. The Social Network star is very much a cat person. In fact, he has 42 cats at his house. No, he didn’t buy 42 cats, he adopts them.

All of the felines that he has were strays that needed homes or else they would be put down. Eisenberg has also said that his apartment is entirely devoted to feline paraphernalia.

Cheryl Cole And Her Carrot Juice

If Cheryl Cole doesn’t have perfect vision after all of the carrot juice she drinks, everyone should boycott carrots. That’s their claim to fame. The more carrots you eat, the better your vision, right?

Cole says that she drinks multiple glasses of carrot juice every day. She says that the Vitamin A benefits were what got her to start drinking it and then she fell in love with the taste which is where her addiction has set in.

Michelle Williams Loves Checking Emails

This is such a weird obsession, but most people in the business world will understand. Williams is fully addicted to checking her emails. That’s normal for someone who lives and dies off their email, but for Michelle, she gets a dopamine hit from it.

Her addiction was so bad at one point that she decided to try writing letters by hand to help the matter. She has since given up and become a full blown email addict.

Kristen Bell Has A Creepy Obsession With Sloths


Kristin Bell has an infamous video on the internet of her meeting a sloth and literally bawling her eyes out. The video is hard to watch because she is SO happy to see the animal that it almost looks like she’s going to pass out.

Her obsession with sloths is borderline insane. Actually, no, it’s full-blown insane. It’s safe to say that we’re all jealous that she can love something as much as she loves sloths.

Jessica Simpson Loves Nicotine


Nicotine gum is commonly used for people who are struggling to quit smoking. So, the fact that Jessica Simpson is addicted to it really isn’t all that weird. Wait, yes it is. Jessica Simpson has never been a smoker.

She just likes the taste of the gum, and says she’s now fully addicted to it. It seems that she’d rather just skip the middleman altogether and just chew the gum instead of having a dangerous smoking habit.

Katy Perry Needs White Teeth

If you’re going to have an addiction or obsession, you better hope that it’s at least healthy for you. In Katy Perry’s case, she can check off that box. She’s addicted to brushing her teeth. After every meal, she gives her teeth a little scrub down.

There is a downside to this, which many dentists have brought to her attention. They say that if she brushes too much, it will wear down her enamel.

Kristin Chenoweth Quarter-Life Crisis

Kristin Chenoweth admitted on an episode of Ellen that she is obsessed with collecting quarters. She said that it maybe stems from her early days as an actress when she needed to save quarters for her 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. If you’re going to collect them, you might as well treat them right.

If you don’t recognize Jason Segel, you’ve probably been living under a rock that doesn’t play rom-coms or something. But, you might never want to see him again after you find out that he’s addicted to puppets.

He says his L.A. home is “packed with puppets. Like, everywhere.” Segel even has a puppet of himself that often times scares his guests. It’s hard to blame them considering even the best looking puppet is still terrifying.

Mila Kunis Is Obsessed With WOW

You know what would make Mila Kunis even cooler than she already is? If she was addicted to playing World of Warcraft. Oh wait, she actually is addicted to World of Warcraft? How convenient.

It’s weird to think that someone with such a down-to-earth personality would like such a culty-style computer game. Celebrities like Sheryl Crow have even weighed in on her obsession and say that they’re mildly concerned for her.

Paris Hilton’s Diving From The Sky

If you look up and see someone skydiving, don’t be surprised if it’s just Paris Hilton doing what she loves to do. She’s not just a one trick pony. She can stand and look glamorous on any red carpet, and then quickly change into her skydiving gear and fling herself out of a plane without hesitation.

She has stated in many interviews that she’s hooked on it. She loves the adrenaline rush that she gets from falling through the sky.

Scarlett Johannsson Loves Buffalo Wings

It’s hard to believe that someone who kicks as much but as ScarJo does as Black Widow also has a buffalo wings obsession. She must go to the gym six times a day to keep her body in shape and also binge eat wings.

She said, “Oh my god, I am obsessed with buffalo wings. You will have to roll me down the red carpet next time you see me.” It’s incredibly relatable.

Nicole Kidman’s Cake Obsession


It’s refreshing to see someone who looks flawless on every red carpet have an obsession other than CrossFit. Nicole Kidman doesn’t try to avoid calorie-loaded confections.

She can somehow keep her figure while also having a full-blown cake addiction. Kidman claims that she has a piece of cake three or four times a week. She says that her obsession doesn’t just stop at cake — she also loves pies and chocolate too.

Ansel Elgort has quite the personality. He’s quirky yet confident, and he’s VERY interesting to look at. He also has quite the obsession. He’s addicted to buying rugs. Yes, rugs.

Elgort said in an interview, “I’m very serious about all things rugs.” He has a soft spot in his wallet for handmade, exotic rugs. He says that he has hundreds of them in his house, which is just straight up captivating and weird.

Shay Mitchell Likes It Hot

Shay Mitchell must have some sort of South American in her because she likes all of her food spicy. She’s not interested in having any food without it being incredibly spicy.

When she was asked what food she ALWAYS has in her fridge, she said that she didn’t have a specific food, but she has about ten different types of hot sauce. Mitchell claims that EVERYTHING tastes better with spice.

Selena Gomez Is Addicted To Pickles


There are actually some very effective health benefits to pickle juice. With that being said, there’s no amount of health benefits that would make it okay to drink pickle juice straight from the jar.

Selena Gomez does this. She says that she goes to the movies and brings pickles and popcorn. If that isn’t the weirdest combination, then I don’t know what is. Yuck. Swap that pickle out for a chocolate bar and now we’re talking.

Peyton List Is Always Applying Lip Gloss

When you’re a celebrity, it’s probably pretty common to have a makeup obsession. Not just because you can afford it, but because you constantly have cameras in your face and human nature will make you want to look your best.

Demi Lovato Is Obsessed With Aliens

Demi Lovato is VERY obsessed with the idea that aliens could be coming to earth at any time. She isn’t alone either. The mystery and the unknown aspect of whether aliens are real captivate millions of people.

She could be on to something though. Most scientists who study space say that there’s a high probability that we aren’t the only living things in outer space. So, Demi’s addiction could become a reality very soon.

Emma Stone LOVES iCarly


Emma Stone admitted that her favorite show of all time is iCarly. She has said that she can basically tell you everything that happens from every episode. Stone’s attraction was originally to the great casting, but she ended up thinking it was incredibly funny.

Taylor Momsen is an actress, model, and musician that you probably know from the TV series Gossip Girl. She doesn’t really have too much free time, but when she does, she sews creepy rag dolls.

Mariah Carey LOVES Naps

This is probably the most relatable thing about Mariah Carey. She’s a well-known diva who demands a lot when she leaves her house. She’ll even make talk show hosts switch up their set so that the camera faces her “good side.”

But, the fact that she’s a sleepaholic is VERY relatable. In fact, she says that she needs to get around 15 hours of sleep A DAY! That’s absolutely incredible.
