Celebrities put a lot of time and effort into polishing their public images, which means they have a lot of quirks that need to be hidden, both in terms of appearance and behavior. They become idols to whom we desire to be more than ordinary individuals.
As a result, we tend to ignore celebrity eccentricities and habits in some cases. We sometimes neglect minor little abnormalities in celebrity behavior. These quirks as well as the reasons behind them can be revealed through closer examination. We want to show an off-the-spotlight side of celebs that we have never seen before. Once you’ve seen it, you will never be able to ignore it again.
Some celebrities are known for their oddities, which make them stand out and sometimes attract more fans. We’ve put up a list of 15 celebrities with unusual quirks, as well as the reasoning behind them.
1. Ariana Grande
Ariana Grande usually wears her hair in a high ponytail because she badly damaged her hair when she had to color it for her role as Cat Valentine in the Nickelodeon show, Victorious.
2. Bill Nye
Bill Nye, also known as ‘The Science Guy,’ is always seen wearing a bow tie. It’s because he is afraid that a knotted tie will fall into his experiments.
Because of his glaucoma, Bono, the frontman of the rock band U2, is constantly seen wearing spectacles. It’s a problem that causes light sensitivity in the eyes.
4. Christopher Walken
Christopher Walken appears to dance a lot in his films. This is due to the fact that Walken began his career as a dancer, not an actor. When and whenever he can, he tries his best to include dancing steps into his actions.
5. Clint Eastwood
Clint Eastwood’s eyes are particularly sensitive to light, thus he keeps them squinting the majority of the time. In most of the shots for Fistful of Dollars, he had his eyes squinted because he was filming in strong light. He had no idea at the moment that he would be the one to create the Clint-Squint trend.
6. Deborah Ann Woll
Deborah Ann Woll, star of True Blood, reveals that she started coloring her hair red to grab attention and stand out. She thinks she has always blended into the background as a light-skinned blonde and longtime loner.
7. Emma Stone
Due to a rare congenital illness, Emma Stone has a very unusual husky voice. When she was a child, she was diagnosed with Colic. She believes she got nodules in her throat because she screamed so much during the first six months of her life.
8. Jason Momoa
The story behind Jason Momoa’s brow scar is unique. One day, a complete stranger smashed a beer bottle in his face, resulting in 180 stitches.
9. Joaquin Phoenix
Joaquin Phoenix’s scar on his mouth isn’t the result of cleft lip repair surgery. It’s a birthmark he was born with.
10. Kurt Cobain
Kurt Cobain did not choose to dress in grunge fashion. He’d be so poor that he’d only shop at secondhand stores and buy mismatched clothing.
11. Marilyn Monroe
Marilyn Monroe would sexily deliver dialogues by whispering them since it helped her overcome her stuttering.
12. Morgan Freeman
Morgan Freeman’s earrings aren’t the typical hoop earrings. They’re expensive enough to buy a coffin in case he dies in an odd location. This is a custom among sailors.
13. Milo Ventimiglia
Because of dead nerves, Milo Ventimiglia’s mouth is perpetually crooked. Milo didn’t realize he had a problem until he watched himself in an interview when he was a child. He tries to keep it under control as much as possible, but can’t help himself when the scene asks for running or yelling.
14. Mister Rogers
Mister Rogers, the host of an educational children’s television show, would always say it out loud whenever he fed the fishes after receiving a letter from a young blind fan afraid that he was starving his finned buddies.
Teller (of Penn & Teller) will not reply to troll hecklers even if the world were to split into two. He learned early in his career that if you ignore loud dunks attempting to disrupt your performance, they will become bored and eventually give up.
