11 Celebrities With Strange Habits That Will Make You Say "WTF"

You're probably sick of hearing it, but that won't stop me from saying it again: celebrities are just like us.

Sure, they have a lot more money and power, and fans put them on pedestals, but just like you and I, they're not perfect.

In fact, many celebrities have some weird and habits that they probably wished other people didn't know about.

From peeing in the shower to excessively brushing their teeth, here are 11 celebrities and their quirky habits:

1. Marlon Brando loved making fart jokes

According to Pirates of the Caribbean actor Johnny Depp, the late Marlon Brando had a habit of playing practical jokes on people, and fart-related ones were his favorite.

Depp once gave Brando a fart machine as a gift and his "face lit up like a Christmas tree, the smile of a five-year-old."

"I handed the fart unit to him, he held it up to the light and exclaimed, “I've found God!!!” Depp wrote.

"I was so proud that, after a couple of years of being on the receiving end of Marlon’s practical jokes, I was finally able to swing back and connect big-time. But we were both winners, as the fart machine became a source of entertainment for many years."

2. Nicholas Cage's diet depends on how animals mate

There are many people who forgo eating certain meats, like pork, based on moral grounds, religious restrictions, or allergies, but not Nicholas Cage.

The actor is on a whole different wavelength when it comes to how he chooses what animals to eat.

The Con Air star told The Sun that he eats fish and poultry, but not pork because of the way they mate. I couldn't make this up even if I tried.

"I actually choose the way I eat according to the way animals have sex," Cage explained."I think fish are very dignified with sex. So are birds. He added, "But pigs, not so much. So I don't eat pig meat or things like that. I eat fish and fowl."

3. Katy Perry is obsessed with brushing her teeth

Maybe she didn't like kissing a girl after all because according to a source close to the "I Kissed A Girl" singer, she brushes her teeth six times a day.

Perry admitted to being obsessed with keeping her pearly whites in good condition, revealing that she was inspired by Britney Spears.

"I'm really anal about that because I like good breath," she said, adding, "I'll brush my teeth (after) breakfast, lunch and dinner ... I did have 13 cavities at one time, so you can imagine why I'm so freaked out.

She continued, "When I was a kid I didn't really go to the dentist a lot ... and when I finally went, they were like, 'You might as well get a new set of teeth.'"

4. Brad Pitt does not shower

If taking a daily shower was a criteria for being the Sexiest Man Alive then Brad Pitt would never win.

Instead of wasting time washing up, the Fight Club actor just relies on baby wipes to stay clean when the actor is busy.

"I got six kids. All you've got to do is just take them, a couple quick wipes under the pits," he told People. "Man, I'm getting [peed] on all day. I don't have time to take a shower."

Umm...shouldn't getting peed on all day encourage one to take a shower? Good thing he is good looking.

We all have something that we do help take our minds off the possibility of a plane crash whenever we fly.

While most people will read a book, watch a show, or meditate, Jennifer Aniston has a very specific ritual that she believes brings her luck and keeps her safe.

The Friends alum always steps onto the plane with her right foot first.

“If I walk onto an airplane, I always have to go on with my right foot first and tap the outside of the plane," she told Yahoo. "I have always done it. For luck.”

For a while, men wanted to date Megan Fox and women wanted to be her.

But after you hear what she has to say about her lack of bathroom manners, your perception of her will change.

The Transformer actress told FHM that she often forgets to "flush the toilet." She added, "Friends will tell me, 'Megan, you totally pinched a loaf in my toilet and didn’t flush.'"

Jennifer Lawrence may be a big shot actress with an Oscar under her belt, but she's still a child at heart.

The actress was caught holding a teddy bear and sucking her thumb at Heathrow Airport in London after attending the 2013 BAFTA Awards.

It's unclear whether or not Lawrence, who is known for her sarcasm and sense of humor, was letting her inner two-year-old out on purpose.

8. Kevin Bacon hates clothes

Since it's illegal to walk around in public without clothes, Kevin Bacon doesn't do it. However, if he had a choice he would prefer not to cover up his body.

The Footloose actor thinks "there's something therapeutic about nudity."

"Clothing is one of the external things about a character," he continued. "Take away the Gucci or Levi’s and we’re all the same."

Bacon added that only walked around the house naked when the nanny isn't around, but in an interview with Telegraph UK a few years later, he said that he doesn't do it nearly as much anymore.

9. Gwyneth Paltrow pees in the shower

Okay, this is a habit many people around the world have, but the Shallow Hal star has a very specific reason why she does it.

According to Goop, peeing in the shower "automatically engages the pelvic floor to lengthen and tone your pelvic floor muscles."

What are the benefits of pelvic floor muscles benefit, you ask? According to Lauren Roxburgh, a fascia and structural integrative specialist, "It's the key to great sex, a flat tummy, and the key to never laying in a supply of Depends."

10. Jessica Simpson is addicted to nicotine gum

Singer, actress and fashion designer Jessica Simpson can't get enough of Nicorette, a type of nicotine gum, albeit she has never smoked a cigarette.

Simpson became addicted to the gum after a close friend's mom gave her one to try.

“I think she thought she was giving me a piece of regular gum. I was chewing it and it was like a party in my mouth," she said on The Tonight Show.

It was like fireworks and ‘Oh my god, I’m talking a million miles per hour and I love this gum and what kind of gum is this? I have to have this gum.'"

Simpson also has a gross habit that definitely makes her lose brownie points: she doesn't brush her teeth every day. Yikes!

"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 everyday," she explained. "But I don't brush them every day."

"My lips just slide all over the place….I can't catch up with my mouth," she continues. "I need a little coating…."

She said that she understands that it's gross to some people, but insists that the failure to regularly brush her teeth has not affected her breath at all.
