Being a picky eater isn’t all that uncommon or unusual. We all have our own special habits that make us unique. Maybe we can only eat chips with dip, or maybe we eat all the red Skittles first. Celebrities are no different.
Some of their preferences have been well documented in pop culture, like how much Elvis Presley loved his peanut butter, but others are just downright bizarre. Prepare your palate to be destroyed, and your celebrity crushes to evaporated after reading this article.
The Eggo King
Athletes are known for their superstitions and routines. Sometimes it’s about showering seven times before a game (Bryce Harper literally does this), but other times it’s about eating Eggo waffles.
Yes, Bryce Harper has given all of his success to eating Eggo waffles before every game and now is the time for all non-athletes to rejoice. Imagine being such a good athlete that eating waffles before every game didn’t make you feel like a fat lard.
A Man Of The Night
The Playboy Mansion’s personal chef has said publicly that Hugh Hefner has some very odd eating hours. He wouldn’t eat breakfast until 11:30 am, lunch was at 5:30 pm, and dinner could come as late as 10:30 pm.
As much as we want to assume that it’s very odd, we are talking about someone who lived in the Playboy Mansion. Many celebrities have said that there are big tubs of fried chicken that were served to the playmates at certain times during the day.
Quite The Pre-Game Meal
If you’re Brian Urlacher, you’re probably not too worried about what you eat before a big game. He’s one of the most iconic linebackers who has been known for his weird pre-game meals.
Before every game, he would eat exactly two chocolate chip cookies. It was something that he did for years because of superstition, and it apparently worked. It’s nice to know that a Hall-of-Famer likes chocolate chip cookies as much as we do.
The MMA fighter is a proponent of urine therapy. If the thought of drinking your own pee makes you want to vomit, you’re not alone. Apparently, it helps to boost your health, and Lyoto Machida is a strong believer.
He says that it helps to boost his immune system and makes him feel better. This isn’t advised, especially in large quantities which makes sense because IT’S REALLY GROSS. There are better tasting ways to stay fit.
Eat Like A Six-Year-Old
You might be pleasantly surprised to find out that the key to Warren Buffet’s heart isn’t money. It’s not a Rolls Royce or a great stock option — it’s a Coca-Cola.
If you want to make a great impression on Warren Buffet, you should probably bring him a can of Coke. He often drinks six of them in a day. He says the lowest death rate for any age group is six years old, so he claims that he tries to eat like one.
A Walking Chicken Nugget
He’s the fastest man on planet earth, so you probably assume he’s just a walking kale salad. Well, you couldn’t be more wrong. While Usain Bolt was competing at the Beijing Olympics, he was consuming close to 100 chicken nuggets a day.
He wrote in his autobiography, “At first I ate a box of 20 for lunch, then another for dinner. The next day I had two boxes for breakfast, one for lunch, and then another couple in the evening.”
Elvis Presley’s Fool’s Gold
Elvis would have to wait until 1976 to find his favorite meal of all time, the “Fool’s Gold” sandwich. What is that, you ask? Well, it’s a long baguette filled with peanut butter, grape jelly, and bacon.
The thing weighed close to four pounds and cost him over $200 a day (which was like play money for someone that rich). He would even make his staff fly to Denver to get him these sandwiches.
Her Limited Options
When Judy Garland was a child actor at MGM Studios, she wasn’t allowed to do a lot of stuff. Her eating regiment was strictly enforced which meant that she could barely eat anything “exotic.”
She was strictly prohibited from eating anything other than chicken and matzah ball soup from the cafeteria of the studio. The staff was warned to serve the young actress only that dish regardless of what she ordered.
George’s Sweet Tooth
America’s first president grew up on a very lean diet consisting largely of nuts. This shouldn’t be all that shocking considering that he would become famous for his wooden teeth after they lost the battle to the many walnut shells he consumed.
But, thanks to his teeth, he was led down the “ice cream all the time” diet. The dessert wasn’t easy to come by in 1790, but that didn’t stop him from spending $200 to obtain the frigid confection.
Indulge In The Appetizer
The oldest Kardashian has some choice words for you if you eat Reese Peanut Butter Cups the normal way. Kourtney took to her app to show her fans the right way to eat the yummy treat.
She peels the chocolate off the peanut butter cup and eating it first until the peanut butter center is completely bare. She says that the chocolate is like an appetizer to the peanut butter entree.
Karl’s Separate House
He was Chanel’s creative director and a fashion icon. Karl Lagerfeld had a laundry list of specifications when it came to his daily routine. He would put a fresh set of sheets on his bed every night, which is bananas.
But even more weird, he kept a separate house for eating and has said that he drank diet coke from the minute he woke up until the minute he went to bed.
The Go-To Cheat Meal
We can now officially thank Jennifer Lawrence for giving us the best cheat meal option of all time. By cheat meal, I mean everyday meal, but we’ll by-pass that part.
She has popularized the Spaghetti-Chilli-Pizza Sandwich, which the Oscar winner considers to be the greatest culinary invention. It’s pretty self-explanatory, but basically, you take a slice of pizza, you put chilli in it with noodles and then add another pizza and eat it like a sandwich. Voila.
A Weird Twist On The PB&J
Channing Tatum is one of the most sought after stars in Hollywood, so naturally, he plays by his own rules. His favorite food is a peanut butter and jelly sandwich, which isn’t that weird until you hear about his bizarre extra ingredient.
He put on Reddit, “Bread, white. Peanut butter— not crunchy, creamy. Grape jelly — double portion, more than you think should actually fit on a piece of white bread. More bread. And then some Cheetos stuffed in there, and then you’re good to go.”
No Thank You, Albert
No one can doubt the intelligence of Albert Einstein, but when it comes to his eating habits, you might start to question his genius. Although his mushrooms and eggs were pretty normal, the time-honored genius was caught trying to eat grasshoppers and then washing it down with some celery juice.
Okay, Einstein, I’m sure that combo is a great way to cut carbs and live a sustainable lifestyle, but I think I’ll pass.
Top Of The Mornin’ To Yah’
He’s probably England’s most prolific Prime Minister. Winston Churchill is known for a whole plethora of legislation and leadership during the war, and his breakfast probably has a lot to do with it.
He was served with two trays of poached eggs, toast, butter, jam, coffee, milk, and cold cuts every morning. Then, he would get a second tray containing grapefruit with sugar and an orange squash and whiskey soda drink.
Henry Ford’s Salad
After he revolutionized the automobile industry with his assembly line, Ford came to the conclusion that the human body only needed the basic requirements to function.
He loved salads, which is a good thing. But, his salads were a little bit different than the ones we’re used to. He would dine on grass and weeds that he could pull from his backyard or the side of the road. No thanks, Henry.
Although you might not know the name Vladimir Nabokov, you probably should after hearing what he used to eat. The Russian novelist is famous for penning Lolita, and admitted to chowing down on butterflies and claiming they tasted like “almonds and perhaps a green cheese combination.”
There is something so nasty, and almost vicious about wanting to eat butterflies like they’re some sort of chocolate bar. Excuse me while I puke in my mouth.
Armstrong’s Smooth Move
Louis Armstrong was a Jazz legend that became a paradigm shifter in the industry. As a child, the jazz-trumpet player’s mother would often tell him to eat laxatives with their meals because they could only afford rotten meals.
Armstrong continued to do so throughout his entire life and would often offer his favorite herbal supplement to his friends. Safe to say he had some very smooth bowel movements throughout his life.
Salvador Dali’s Bizarre Cookbook
Salvador Dali and his wife, Gala, were known for their lavish lifestyle and lush gatherings with famous friends. They even decided to come out with a very weird cookbook that had some even weirder dishes.
One of Salvador’s favorite meals was eating toffee and pine cones, which sounds just as painful as it sounds tasty. They also had a dish that was called “frog pasties” which sounds like a lot of time was spent on the toilet afterward.
Breakfast Of Champions
Scott Foley made a huge mistake when he revealed on Instagram that he and his family put peanut butter on their scrambled eggs. He put in the caption, “it’s a family thing, it’s a protein thing.”
He posted a video of him making his son’s breakfast and literally smearing peanut butter all over it. He claims that it’s an amazing combination and to not knock it until you try it. I’m going to pass.
Michael Bublé has come under fire on social media after he showed himself eating corn on the cob. Now, this is a polarizing topic because there is only one way to eat corn, sorry.
He started up top and then didn’t tackle the sides of the cob. People were screaming vegetable harassment and I completely agree. Bublé responded to all the criticism by saying that his “Cobb is nobody’s business.”
Put It Back In The Bag
Chrissy Teigen didn’t get on the cover of Sports Illustrated eating chips her whole life, right? Right? Wrong. She is a Doritos lover and isn’t ashamed of it.
What puts her on this list is that she eats her Doritos in a very bizarre way. First, she licks all of the seasoning off of every single chip and then puts them back in the bag. Is this genius or just straight up strange?
Lord Byron’s Fermented Diet
If you’re looking for an alternative diet that seemed to work for Lord Byron, maybe think about apple cider vinegar. While studying at Cambridge University, the poet became worried about his weight and would therefore only dine on biscuits, potatoes, water, and apple cider vinegar.
He would cover all of his meals in the vinegar, and after losing 60 pounds, the method became one of the earliest celebrity-endorsed fad diets.
A Picky Palate
When the legendary cubist artist got older, Pablo Picasso restricted his diet to consist of only mineral water, milk, veggies, fish, rice pudding, and grapes.
I guess it shouldn’t be a surprise that he had a picky palate, but rice pudding? Really? This might be an unpopular opinion, but rice pudding is the worst kind of pudding that you could ever imagine. Maybe that’s why his self-portraits took such a dark turn in his later years.
Gourmet Shower Meals
With Jessica Biel, it’s less about what she’s eating and more about where she’s eating it. The star has no problem with bringing her food into the shower to eat, which is the most relatable thing of all time.
We aren’t talking about just your everyday shower beer, either. Oh no, she has full dishes that she brings into the shower with her. She says that it’s what being a mom has done to her.
A Banana Sandwich
Unless you’ve been living under a rock, you definitely didn’t miss that moment in 2016 when Dale Earnhardt Jr. made everyone on the internet upset.
Apparently, the world does not agree with his sandwich choice, which is as legendary as his driving record. He likes mayonnaise, banana, and white bread, which sounds like the most disgusting sandwich of all time. Dale is going to make it the official sandwich of NASCAR very soon.
She Loves Her “Salad”
When you have a professional chef as a husband, you can expect to have quite the experimental taste buds. Tori Spelling’s husband, Dean McDermott, experiments a lot with gummy bears.
Spelling says that her favorite meal to have that’s made by her hubby is a gummy bear salad, which sounds delicious. If the dressing is some vanilla or chocolate ice cream, you can sign the rest of the world up for the salad as well.
A Pasta Fit For A Royal
Do you know how the whole world has been obsessing over Meghan Markle? She’s literally royalty, but at heart, she still eats really gross food and is very normal.
She’s been using this very weird pasta hack which involves cooking zucchini with water and a little bouillon. That process creates what she calls “a filthy, sexy mush” which she loves to indulge in. That sounds offensively gross if you ask me.
Cruisin’ Through That Dough
If you’re a normal person, you probably believe that all forms of cookie dough are created equal. There is no way to discriminate against cookie dough, right? Well, according to Tom Cruise, we’re wrong.
Apparently, he found a mission that was too impossible to overcome — pre-packaged cookie dough. He apparently couldn’t find a package of it in his fridge and got super upset at his assistants because he couldn’t find his “cookie stuff.”
Okay, we have to admit that it isn’t THAT weird to love Cheetos. I mean, there are people on this list that put them in their sandwiches (looking at your Channing Tatum).
But, we do have to give Jessie James Decker some mad respect because she was willing to post this picture on her Instagram, which is the most relatable picture we’ll ever see. If you haven’t almost split your lip trying to fit one more Cheeto in your mouth, you’re doing life wrong.
