Weirdest Celebrity Home Habits

Monica Gray - August 12, 2023

Everyone has home habits they’d rather keep on the down low. Whether you drink from the same glass all week without washing it, or have a habit of wearing the same socks over and over again, you at least know no one else will ever find out about your dirty habits. But that’s not the case if you’re a celebrity. We’ve found out about the weirdest celebrity home habits that will probably make you feel better about your own strange and gross habits. Some are jaw-dropping, while others are just plain wrong. Unfortunately, we’ll never look at these bug-munching, sink-peeing, or oil-pulling celebrities the same way, ever again.


Gene Simmons Puts Ice Cubes In His Cereal

You’ve probably put ice cubes in your soup or cups of hot chocolate to cool it down quickly. But have you ever put ice cubes in your cereal, which is already cold? Gene Simmons does just that. It’s difficult to understand why he puts ice cubes in his chilled bowl of cereal, but it’s one of his habits he can’t seem to break. It sounds like he’s just making his cereal soggier, faster. The Twitter comments are hilarious, and it seems like most people don’t put ice cubes in their cereal. Sorry, Gene (Twitter).

Jessica Simpson Only Brushes Her Teeth Three Times Per Week

There’s a reason the dentist tells us to brush our teeth twice a day, floss, and use antiseptic mouthwash. It’s to prevent gum disease and gingivitis, all of which can negatively affect our health. Despite her pearly white teeth, one of Jessica Simpson’s weirdest habits is that she only brushes her teeth three times… per week. Seriously, does she not have four minutes during the entire day to brush her teeth? In an interview, she said, “Because my teeth are so white and I don’t like them to feel too slippery, but I do use Listerine and I do floss every day. But, I don’t brush them every day. I’ll use a shirt or something. I know it’s gross but I always have fresh breath. It’s really weird, but I have great breath.” At least she flosses, though that’s not enough by itself (News).

Kate Hudson Uses An Ice Bath

The words ice and bath should never be used in the same sentence unless you’re Kate Hudson. The trend started with a former actor she used to work with, who used to stick his entire face into an ice bath to make himself look more awake. Even though tons of benefits come with using an ice bath, including reducing pain and inflammation, lowering body temperature, and improving your mood, it doesn’t mean it’s necessarily comfortable or pleasant to use. This is one of the healthiest habits on this list, though probably the most painful. She keeps her face in the water for some time, and admits, “It depends how badly I want it.” It could be seconds, or minutes (Stylecaster).

Atlas Obscura

Nicolas Cage Bought A Pyramid

This is less of a habit and more of a strange life plan, but thanks to his obsession with Egypt, Nicolas Cage bought a pyramid mausoleum in a New Orleans cemetery. He intends to use this as his final resting place when he dies. Most people write wills and leave it at that, Nicolas. Some people believe he’s using it as a hommage to the National Treasure movie (Atlas Obscura).

Vanity Fair

Jake Gyllenhaal Believes Not Bathing Is Good For Your Skin

Even though fans around the world fell in love with Jake Gyllenhaal and his good looks, it doesn’t mean he’s clean. One of his strange habits has to do with his lack of bathing. In an interview, he said, “More and more I find bathing to be less necessary, at times. But I do also think that there’s a whole world of not bathing that is also really helpful for skin maintenance, and we naturally clean ourselves.” At the very least, he works on perfecting his manners and breathing (Vanity Fair).


Neither Ashton Kutcher Nor Mila Kunis Shower

It turns out Jake Gyllenhaal isn’t the only one who believes not showering is good for you. Ashton Kutcher and Mila Kunis also believe this sort of thing. When they appeared on Dax Shepard’s Podcast, Mila said, “I don’t wash my body with soap every day,” and her husband, Ashton, said, “I wash my armpits and my crotch daily, and nothing else ever.” We don’t want to know what their home must smell like (Eonline).


Jessica Biel Showers And Eats Her Meals At The Same Time

There’s nothing like a good shower beer after a long day at work. But what about a shower meal? Wait, what? That’s exactly what Jessica Biel does in the shower. Instead of eating her food at the table like a normal person, she brings plates of food, like chicken and apple sausage, into the shower. She claims it’s because she doesn’t have time for anything else. She said, “I don’t know if anybody else does this, but I do not have time. I don’t have time—for anything—so I’m feeding [my son, Silas] in the morning, trying to get ready, and I realized I haven’t eaten. I just take it into the shower.” Biel even puts her espresso shot on the ledge where her shampoo and conditioner normally sit. There are some habits most of us would never try, and that’s one of them (Delish).

Bright Side

Robert Pattinson Showers His Hair Once Every Six Weeks

Most of us wash our hair every day, or at least every other day. Unless you’re Robert Pattinson, who washes his hair once every six weeks. To him, there’s no point in washing your hair, which is why his habits don’t include a hair wash. As much as we’d love to run our fingers along Edward Cullen’s long locks, this is giving us second thoughts. Maybe we’ll wait until he washes it, but six weeks feels like a long time. At one point, he was accused of smelling bad (MTV).

First We Feast

Chrissy Teigen Licks The Seasoning Off Of Doritos

Most people stick their fingers into a bag of Doritos, munch on the chips, and then lick their fingers after. Chrissy Teigen, on the other hand, got into one of the most disgusting habits on this list, where she licks the seasoning off of the Doritos and then puts them back into the bag. She claims it’s not to get the extra calories or carbs, and said, “I lick off the nacho cheese seasoning and put the chips back in the bag.” We love Dorito Dust as much as the next person, but this is taking it too far (People).


Michael Jordan Wears His Lucky Shorts

Having a lucky article of clothing is one of the longest-held superstitions in the world, so it might not be surprising to learn that Michael Jordan has a lucky pair of shorts. He wore this pair of shorts while he was playing for the North Carolina Tar Heels in 1982 when he led his team to the national championship. Because of this, he’s adopted superstitious habits that include wearing his shorts underneath his uniform whenever he plays (Bleacher Report).

The Sun

Kit Harington Has To Sip Water Three Times

They always say the number three is a lucky number. Kit Harington is a firm believer in just that, hence the reason he’s developed one of the strangest habits on this list. He also eats his favorite candy in three and goes so far as to kiss the floor three times. It’s less of a ritual than an OCD habit. In an interview, he said, “It’s a happy coincidence for me. I am weirdly OCD. I develop new superstitions for each thing I’m in and for this one it involved eating Haribo. It does help with the drool. I have to kiss certain things before going on stage. I have to kiss the stage floor three times.” If he believes it works, maybe it does (The Sun).

Just Jared

Matthew McConaughey Plays The Bongos Naked

Celebrity Matthew McConaughey takes his strange habits to his bongo. Not only does he drum the bongoes late at night, but he plays them naked. He was even arrested once for playing his bongoes too loudly in the middle of the night. In his memoir, he wrote, “What I didn’t know was that while I was banging away in my bliss, two Austin policemen also thought it was time to barge into my house unannounced, wrestle me to the ground with nightsticks, handcuff me and pin me to the floor.” He resisted the arrest but was inevitably taken in (Independent).

Megan Fox Is Obsessed With Crystals

Megan Fox’s habits include placing crystals all around her house. Because she’s a self-proclaimed crystal enthusiast, she believes in the healing properties of crystals and their impact on the human mind and body. She knows way more about crystals than cars, though we’re not sure crystal knowledge will get you very far in life. In an interview, she said, “They change your vibration, they change your frequency. They’re good for healing your body, calming your nerves, and just about any you can up with. Any ailment you have, there’s a crystal for you.” Maybe we need to head to the shop and buy some crystals (In Style).

The Mirror

Jennifer Lawrence Likes To Pee In Sinks

The Hunger Games star doesn’t mind peeing in the sink. It’s not every day you meet someone who prefers to pee in the sink than the toilet. During an interview, she said: “I’ve peed in some sinks. When two girls go into a bathroom, someone’s gotta take the sink. One could wait, but if the one waiting is me, she’s going to the sink.” She doesn’t mind doing this in public places, either. That makes us second guess the next time we go anywhere near the sink in a restroom. She even went so far as to say, “I don’t wash my hands after I go to the bathroom.” If you ever meet Jennifer Lawrence, it’s probably best to refrain from shaking her hand (Koimoi).

Mark Wahlberg Wakes Up At Two In The Morning

Most people go to bed at two in the morning, unless you’re Mark Wahlberg. He wakes up at two in the morning. As a devout Catholic, he spends the first 45 minutes of his day praying, does two workouts, and has two breakfasts, all by the time we wake up for coffee. Talk about productivity! (Finty)

The Wrangler

Serena Williams Owns Lucky Socks

Similar to Michael Jordan and his lucky shorts, Serena Williams also has a pair of lucky socks. She tends to wear the same socks in every match, as a way to bring luck to ger game. Her strange habits also include tying her shoes the same way at home, before every single match. Whether the superstitions work or not is unknown (BV).


Sandra Bullock Uses Hemorrhoid Cream For Beauty

Even at the ripe age of 57, Sandra Bullock still looks as beautiful as ever. But it’s not only her genes that give her that beauty, she has a special life hack that keeps her looking young and fresh. To do this, she applies hemorrhoid cream under her eyes. This helps prevent her from getting lines under her eyes and aging. She said, “I didn’t realize that putting hemorrhoid ointment on your face is acceptable in the beauty business. But butt cream does help lines around the eyes.” Sometimes, all it takes is a $7 drugstore item to keep you looking young forever (Yahoo).

Cheat Sheet

Elton John Is Obsessed With Candles

Thanks to his candle obsession, Elton John places candles throughout his home to create a cozy, warm ambiance. He loves them so much, he purchased tons of Gwyneth Paltrow’s vagina scented candles until they were sold out. Douglas Little, who worked on selling the candle, said, “I saw the candle being sold on eBay for a ridiculous price. Elton John bought a ton of them. Like a lot. Like, a lot a lot. He’s a fan.” He must have placed one in every room of his house (Grazia Daily).

Fear Factor

Pamela Anderson Is Scared Of Her Reflection

This blonde bombshell hates looking at her reflection in the mirror. She suffers from eisoptrophobia, or the fear of reflective surfaces and mirrors. Anderson also hates watching herself on television. At least her reflection fear hasn’t stopped her from acting in movies or performing (The List).


Kim Kardashian Keeps Records Of Her Coats

Imagine having enough coats to archive them. Most of our coats live on the floor or the backs of our chairs. One of the stranger habits on this list involves Kim Kardashian’s coats. She has so many, that she archives them and keeps records of them. In a Twitter response to her coats, she said, “I have every single coat and each one of these outfits all archived with the photo attached to each look! Don’t you worry!” Maybe one day we’ll reach that level of fame, but for now, we’ll stick with our two coats. She’s also known to color code her refrigerator and organize it (People).


Lauren Conrad Swishes Oil In Her Mouth

You might have heard of the latest trend of oil pulling. Lauren Conrad is one of these people that’s jumped on the oil-pulling bandwagon. As soon as she wakes up in the morning, she swishes oil around in her mouth. Her team wrote, “Basically, oil pulling works as an all-natural mouthwash. Right when you wake up in the morning, drink a glass of big water. Then, put a spoonful of coconut oil or sesame oil in your mouth and swish it around for 5 to 20 minutes. Don’t eat anything before – you want the oil to pull the toxins from your body before you’ve put anything else in your mouth.” Twenty minutes is a lot, and if you’ve ever tried oil pulling, you’ll know just how hard it is to do. If the oil turns yellow, it means you’ve pulled toxins out of your mouth, though there’s not too much scientific evidence to back that up (Just Jared).

Business Insider

Mark Zuckerberg Wears A Different Gray Shirt Every Day

You might wear the same colored shirt two days in a row, but it’s fun to switch it up and wear different-styled clothes throughout the week. But Mark Zuckerberg doesn’t do this. He wears a different gray shirt every single day so he doesn’t have to decide what to wear. He wants to go throughout his day making as few decisions as possible. This allows him to focus his energy on other things while he’s at work (Independent).


Cameron Diaz Opens Door Knobs With Her Elbows

While some celebrities pee in sinks, others are too afraid of germs and prefer to open knobs with their elbows. Cameron Diaz is one of those people. This is all thanks to her cleanliness obsession. She uses her elbows to avoid touching knobs and handles that are infested with germs. This takes a lot of practice and skill to be able to open doors with your elbows (Reddit).


Karl Lagerfeld Buys Collared Shirts As A Habit

At one point, Karl Lagerfeld owned over 1,000 high-collared shirts. He even helped design them himself. It’s said he used enough starch to let them stand all by themselves. He wore the iconic look every day of his life and paired his shirts with black sunglasses to complete the eccentric look (Insider).


Angelina Jolie Munches On Insects

As a source of protein, Angelina Jolie munches on insects. She’s also gotten her kids into the habit. They also love eating spiders. Bugs are a big part of their household diet. They started with crickets and moved their way up to tarantulas. They’re known to pop insects into their mouths the same way they eat Doritos (SCMP).

Kesha Uses A Glitter Roll Before Her Shows

We understand good luck charms. There’s a reason people use them. Kesha’s good luck habits are a bit strange. Before every show, she and her team strips down naked, lather their bodies in oil and roll around in glitter as good luck. That sounds uncomfortable and messy, but if it works for them, then so be it. When discussing all things beauty, she said, “I wanted to be more confident in myself—embrace every inch of my body—not try to cover up with makeup.” She’s also known to use beer as a glitter adhesive, though we’re not sure she’d smell very good (MTV).


Catherine Zeta-Jones’ Has A Strange Teeth Whitening Habit

To keep her teeth looking pearly white, Catherine Zeta-Jones uses strawberries mixed with baking soda. She then follows it with regular toothpaste and swears by the ritual to keep her teeth and mouth healthy and clean. In an interview, she said, “The juice or pulp of strawberries contains malic acid which serves as an astringent and can lighten surface stains.” She also goes so far as to wash her hair in beer (Now to Love).
