When we were younger, we’d often be teased about the oddest things. But fortunately, over time, as we mature, we recognize that what may make us weird or unusual is also what makes us truly unique!
Here we take a look at some of the not-so-usual hobbies, passions, fears and quirks of some of our favorite celebs.
1. DRAWN TO THE DARK BREW
The multi-talented performer Paulo Avelino knows how to sing and dance, and, of course, act! But did you know that he can also whip up a mean cup of coffee? The coffee connoisseur prefers to brew his own cups and he even brings his equipment and coffee paraphernalia to set to brew a cup for himself and his co-stars.
2. ESPRESSO ESPECIALE
Another local star who’s obsessed with coffee is Anne Curtis. While others collect kitchen magnets and keychains on their trips abroad, Anne collects espresso cups. How cute! She’s amassed quite a collection, and the cups are as quirky and as colorful as her personality. In addition to espresso cups, it’s been reported that she also loves to collect Christmas décor.
3. AFRAID OF BABE
Remember that hottie Orlando Bloom from The Pirates of the Caribbean and The Lord of the Rings? Well, he may act all macho playing the dashing leading man who dives into danger and adventure without fear, but did you know that what makes him bolt off set faster than Flash? Pigs. Yes, pigs. Weird noh?
4. BIG BOY TOYS
Sometimes the boys, even when they become men, will never outgrow their love for toys. And Gerald Anderson is one of them. His love for his superhero, Iron Man, has been carried over into adulthood, and aside from having an impressive collection, the star even has a life-sized statue in his room!
5. BRUSH OBSESSION
It’s been reported that megastar Katy Perry brushes her teeth at least six times a day and always has new toothbrushes at hand wherever she goes. Her obsession with maintaining her pearly whites stems from her childhood fear of having cavities. “I did have 13 cavities at one time, so you can imagine why I’m so freaked out,” she shared in an interview.
6. DOWN WITH DOLPHINS
Supermodel Tyra Banks led the beauty revolution and gave us the immensely entertaining America’s Next Top Model. It’s undeniable that she’s an alpha woman who cannot be stopped. But do you know what’ll make her stop dead in her tracks? Dolphins. They say she can’t stand them and is intensely afraid of them. "I've been afraid of [them] since I was 8 or 9," she once told People magazine.
As you can see, even celebs have their unusual fears and quirks, but that hasn’t stopped them from finding success. In fact, their quirks only make them more adorable!
