We often cannot separate the offscreen persona of the celebrities from their onscreen persona. We believe they lead a uber glamorous life and are always on their exalted pedestal. But more often than not, when they close the doors of their palatial mansions, they are like most of the people we know. They do their own thing, dabble in their own humble and not-so-humble interests.
For example, did you know that the gorgeous Julia Roberts loves to knit? It’s hard to imagine our favorite ‘Pretty Woman’ sitting in one of her plush couches and knitting away to glory. But maybe normal hobbies such as these help them keep grounded and help them build a paparazzi-free normal life for themselves. It is fairly interesting to note the hobbies that these popular celebs indulge in. They can be mundane to completely unexpected at times. We sure loved to know more about the unusual hobbies of our favorite celebs.
The pop diva recently revealed things about herself that we knew nothing about. She has an interest in beehives and has two live ones. She has about 80,000 bees living in them.
And she makes hundreds of honey jars a year! She also explained that she started keeping beehives for her two children. Both her daughters suffer from allergies, and honey is said to have healing properties for combating allergies.
When Kendall Jenner appeared on the James Corden Hidden Talents Show, she revealed that she has a penchant for bird-calling. We don’t know exactly where she picked up this hobby, but it is an interesting way to spend one’s free time. Don’t you think so?
The posed and perfect Nicole Kidman is also an adrenaline junkie. So much so that she got herself a skydiving license for the same. And she encourages all women to try it out as it makes her think she has her wings and can fly. Isn’t that a wonderful feeling?
Miss Hilton has a strange hobby that may ruffle the feathers of animal activists when they hear about it. But she says it is entirely harmless, and she does not hurt any animals or birds. She goes to all these ranches, one in Oakland, California, and Nevada, and catches frogs. She keeps them in a bucket and then releases them. Also, aside from her frog-dalliances, she has a penchant for old radios and has the skill of restoring them.
Brad Pitt making pottery is an image we can deal with. But he is often joined by his good old pal Leonardo Di Caprio who will also amp up his pottery game, and the two will join hands and make winsome pottery till the crack of dawn.
Imagine two of the most handsome men in Hollywood getting their hands all muddy to make interesting sculptures! We can’t deal with it!
Katty Perry has interesting hair, well we all know that, but what is surprising to know is, she also collects other celebrities’ hair. Quite a hair-raising hobby. If you think whose hair she has collected recently, well, they are none other than Taylor Swift and Miley Cyrus. She labels her hobby as creepy and awesome. We do agree with the former, though.
Smith looks oh-so-fit for his years. Aside from spending hours inside the close confines of his gym, he also likes to sway his incredibly fit body for fencing. And he is in good company as Tom Cruise and David Beckham join him in his favorite pastime.
So, instead of joining his pals over coffee or a dumbbell date, they put their heads together to do some fencing working their sinewy muscles in the process. And they love it. Will rues that they do not spend enough time with each other as much as they would have like to. But give them a day of fencing, and they would bond like crazy. Fencing is hard and not very kind to his joints, especially his knee, but we know Will being Will, he will still be able to slay with his trademark competitiveness.
Most of these celebrities have interesting and intriguing hobbies, which they like to indulge in regularly. Also, they have some August companies too when they indulge in the same. As for us, we would pay to watch some of these celebs dabbling in what catches their fancies. We can even pay to watch Will, Tom, and David fighting it out in a fencing match. What say?
