12 Celebrities Who Have Brow-Raising Rituals
Every person has their quirks that may be considered weird to others. And celebrities are no exception here. Supermodel Heidi Klum, for example, carries a bag of her baby teeth for good luck, while actor Colin Farrell wears the same boxer shorts covered with shamrocks whenever he starts a movie. And here are 13 other celebrities who have quite unusual habits.
1. Katy Perry
Singer Katy Perry brushes her teeth at least 3 times a day. “I brush my teeth all the time. I wanted them to be, like, Britney Spears white. I did have 13 cavities at one time, so you can imagine why I’m so freaked out,” Perry said.
A source close to the singer said she brushes her teeth 6 times a day because she’s afraid of getting fillings. They also added that the singer always keeps 20 brand-new toothbrushes close at hand.
2. Kit Harington
Kit Harington’s character in Game of Thrones always carried a sword. In real life, the actor always brings his lucky pen. “I have a few kinds of lucky mascots. I’ve got a lucky pen — it’s one I’ve had since I was a kid, and I carry it everywhere,” Harington says.
The actor also has another quirk. Every time he gets on a plane, he has to touch the outside of the aircraft 3 times before getting in.
3. Mariah Carey
In 2013, singer Mariah Carey would eat only lilac foods, like plums, grapes, and eggplants, 3 times a week, according to tabloids. The celebrity tried to lose her post-baby pounds this way.
Another interesting habit of Mariah Carey’s is that she sleeps with 20 humidifiers in her bedroom, making it feel like a steam room. This ensures her vocal cords remain in perfect condition. Her bedroom ceiling is slanted so that condensation runs off rather than dripping on her head.
4. Jessica Biel
In 2017, the actress posted a photo on Instagram, showing her eating in the shower. Later, Jessica Biel explained the weird photo, saying, “This is just mom life.” As you may know, she and her husband, Justin Timberlake, had their son in 2015. So eating in the shower was probably just a way to save some time, like any other new parent would try to do.
5. Kate Hudson
Kate Hudson shared one of her favorite beauty tricks. “To wake myself up or make my skin less dull, I’ll dunk my head in a bowl of ice — it’s like taking a cold plunge with your face,” the actress said. Paul Newman taught her this trick.
6. Mark Wahlberg
Mark Wahlberg posted his crazy daily schedule online in 2018. And by looking at it, you can easily understand how this man combines the roles of an actor, producer, businessperson, rapper, and songwriter so efficiently.
Wahlberg wakes up at 2:30 a.m., eats 2 times, works out at the gym, plays golf, and has cryotherapy sessions. His schedule also includes family and business matters, another workout at a gym, and he goes to bed at 7:30 p.m. And judging by the fact that the actor has a net worth of $350 million, his demanding schedule brings its fruits.
7. Jessica Alba
Famous actress Jessica Alba adds pink Himalayan salt to her drinking water. The actress does power yoga, so simple water is just not enough for her. The actress says that she has to follow a sodium-heavy diet due to her low blood sugar and low blood pressure. Otherwise, Alba gets “woozy,” as she puts it.
8. Jason Segel
Jason Segel, the star of How I Met Your Mother and The Muppets, is obsessed with puppets. He even has a separate room in his house that’s packed with them.
9. Catherine Zeta-Jones
The actress revealed that she brushes her teeth with strawberries. She says, “The juice or pulp of strawberries contains malic acid, which serves as an astringent and can lighten surface stains. Pineapples work the same way.”
10. Stephen King
The King of Horror revealed that his weakness is dessert. In an interview with Bon Appétit, King said desserts are food for his mind. Before he sits down to write, he eats a slice of cheesecake.
11. Wayne Rooney
One of the best British soccer players revealed in his biography that he has trouble falling asleep. He can only do it by turning on a vacuum cleaner or blow-dryer.
12. Blake Lively
In 2014, actress Blake Lively revealed that her hair is silky smooth thanks to mayo. Lively said that her mother taught her this trick. Before washing her hair, the actress applies mayo to its ends. That way, the shampoo doesn’t strip the bottom of the hair and dry it out, making it brittle.
