1. Bill Murray Tried To Smuggle 10 Pounds Of Weed Into The US
There's always more than meets the eye when it comes to Bill Murray. On his 20th birthday, he was stopped in a Chicago airport with bricks of marijuana worth $20,000. Murray was ready to fly back to Denver after his celebrations and resume his pre-med studies. However, he made a very silly mistake while waiting in line.
Murray joked to one of his fellow passengers that he was carrying two bombs in his suitcase, and someone overheard and reported him to security. When they went through Murray's luggage they didn't find explosives, but bricks of weed. Since he was a first-time offender, he didn't go to jail but served five years of probation.
2. Rob Lowe Lost His Hearing In One Ear Because Of The Mumps
As children, most of us were vaccinated for the mumps, so we never had to experience it. The horrible disease killed tons of children, and although Rob Lowe is lucky to be alive, it did leave him deaf in one ear. While this is not tragic, it has definitely been a nuisance in his life.
Lowe said he doesn't really think about it that much, but it is annoying to sit in very noisy restaurants. He also couldn't appreciate classical music the same way his West Wing costars did.
3. Megan Fox Truly Believes In Leprechauns
Megan Fox is known for playing the gorgeous girl who is surprisingly smart; however, we are scratching our heads after hearing this fact about her. Although she doesn't believe that the Lucky Charms mascot is going to come to steal her cereal, she does believe in leprechauns.
Fox has expressed that she believes in Irish folklore, and the tales have to come from somewhere. In an interview, she also said that she has a "child-like spirit," and she wants to believe in some things that people think are silly.
4. Rebel Wilson Decided To Become An Actress After A Bizarre Experience
Rebel Wilson is undeniably hilarious, and when we watch her, we can't help but laugh till we are crying. Before she decided to start acting, she was a studious person who focused on her school work and getting good grades. However, a trip to South Africa changed her life forever.
While in South Africa, Wilson caught malaria and was hallucinating for weeks. When she recovered from the illness, she felt like a new person and decided she would go into acting. We don't know what she hallucinated, but it must have been pretty inspiring.
5. Ryan Gosling Was Almost In The Backstreet Boys
Most people know that Ryan Gossling got his acting start on The Mickey Mouse Club with Justin Timberlake, but what people don't know is that he was almost a member of the Backstreet Boys. He was this close to having had been in the rival boy band of his childhood costar.
However, Gossling didn't think the band would hit it big - and boy was he wrong. Although he decided to skip the boy band phase of his life, he still has a pretty successful career, so we guess he made the right choice. After all, if he decided to join the Backstreet Boys, there wouldn't have been The Notebook.
6. Christopher Walken Used To Be A Lion Tamer
As a child, Christopher Walken worked for a circus. During one of the shows, he had to enter the lion arena with a whip and get a lion named Sheba to roll over on command. In an interview, he said the lion was as tame as a dog. Did he mean a rabid dog?
We are just picturing him saying, "Ay, oh, pretty lion, don't eat me." It works better if you read it in Christopher Walken's voice. He grew up in Queens, New York, but this sounds like something straight out of eastern Europe.
7. Tim Allen Served 2 Years In Prison For Possession Of Cocaine
From Home Improvement to Toy Story, most people would be shocked to find out that this family-friendly star actually served time in prison. In the late'70s, Allen was stopped at an airport with almost two pounds of cocaine. Can you believe that? In the post 9/11 world we can't imagine even trying that.
At the time, he was a drug dealer, and he spent two years in prison for this offense. No one ever would have guessed that he would go on to become one of the most loveable actors in Hollywood. His parol office probably thought he would end up back in jail.
8. Charlie Sheen Tried To Hunt The Loch Ness Monster With A Leg Of Lamb
Charlie Sheen is known for many crazy stunts - cough, cough tiger's blood- but we didn't know he could reach a new level of insane. This was before his manic public breakdown, which should have been predicted considering the bizarreness of his actions, but people didn't notice until he went fully cray-cray.
Apparently, Charlie Sheen went searching for the Loch Ness monster with a leg of lamb. We don't know if he found anything, or caught a hungry fish, but the man has been off his rocker for quite some time. Didn't anyone think this was strange behavior at the time?
9. Jennifer Aniston Turned Down A Spot On SNL Before Friends
Can you imagine what Friends would have been like without Jennifer Aniston? We can't even imagine a world without Rachel Green and her iconic style. However, that was almost a possibility when Aniston was offered a spot on Saturday Night Live before landing her role on the hit sitcom.
Aniston was on Lorne Michael's radar, but she ended up declining the offer, and her friend Adam Sandler was disappointed because he was excited to have her as a costar. It looks like she made the right choice because she eventually made $1 million per episode of Friends.
10. Nicolas Cage Once Outbid Leonardo DiCaprio For A Dinosaur Skull
While we know Nicolas Cage is a bit eccentric, we never imagined he would be in a bidding war with Leonardo DiCaprio. We might have believed it more if it was just Nicolas Cage, but mixing in Leo is a whole different story.
Cage and DiCaprio got in a bidding war over the prehistoric skull, but Cage outbid him. He ended up paying $270,000 for a 67 million-year-old piece of bone. We wonder if he was so desperate to buy it after having been inspired by all those amazing (albeit, fake) artifacts while filming National Treasure.
11. Channing Tatum Was In Ricky Martin's "She Bangs" Video
Everyone thought they followed Channing Tatum from the start when he starred in Step Up, but he had a leading role before that, which we all forgot about. We must have missed it when he starred in Ricky Martin's "She Bangs" video, and now we have to go back and watch it.
In the video, Tatum plays a bartender, and we can just imagine him being so cute and young. Now that you know this information, maybe you will be just as obsessed with it as we are. Ok, we are going to go watch that video on repeat right away.
12. Lady Gaga Spent $50K To Find Out If A Ghost Was Haunting Her
We all know Lady Gaga is a bit out there, but we never pinned her for being this type of crazy. Sometimes we hear things in our homes and assume it is a spirit, but we have never named them or thought we knew the ghost. Luckily for Gaga, she has the means to find out if there is a spirit following her.
Lady Gaga seriously thought that the spirit following her was named Ryan, and she paid $50,000 to check the electromagnetic field in all the hotels she stays in when on tour. Can you imagine working at one of those hotels? That would be very confusing.
13. Kanye West Used To Work At The Gap
When it comes to Kanye West, you never know what to expect. He is a little cooky, but he knows how to make good clothing and footwear. However, his prices are insanely ridiculous, and it is not as affordable as the stores he worked at before he was famous.
Back in the day, before the world knew him as a designer and musician, he worked at the Gap. The Gap may not be dirt cheap, but it is definitely affordable compared to anything Kanye West sells. Even when something of his is on sale, it is still at an unattainable price.
14. Keanu Reeves Almost Changed His Name
Keanu Reeves has been in Hollywood for a long time, but many people don't know that much about him. The actor was born in Lebanon and moved around the world as a child. Reeves is actually still not an American citizen, but that's not even the most intriguing thing about him.
When he got into acting, Reeves thought about changing his name to Chuck Spadina. Maybe he thought it sounded more desirable for movie producers and casting directors, but to us, it sounds like the name of some random pizzeria in the midwest.
15. Britney Spears Was In A Girl Group That Was The American Version Of Spice Girls
While most people believe they have been following Britney Spears from the beginning of her career, they might not know this short-lived venture before making it big on her own. After she shed her Mickey Mouse Clubhouse status, Spears blossomed into a gorgeous teenager with incredible talents.
Before she went solo, Spears was in a girl group that was supposed to be America's answer to the Spice Girls in the UK. However, no one could be as successful as the Spice Girls, and Spears decided to go solo. While she has had a widely successful career, it has come with some costs. #FreeBritney
16. Madonna Was Once Fired From Her Job At Dunkin Donuts
Madonna might just be the queen of pop, but she had to work hard to get there. It might be surprising to hear the before Madonna was a global superstar, she was working minimum wage jobs just like the rest of us. However, she must have been destined for stardom because she couldn't keep those early jobs.
While working at Dunkin Donuts, Madonna was playing with the jelly machine, and she got fired. Can you imagine finding out that Madonna was the one who served you at the local Dunkin? That would be pretty crazy, keep it in mind next time you see who's serving you a donut from across the register next time you go.
17. Eva Mendes Wanted To Be A Nun
Eva Mendes is a gorgeous actress who happens to be in a long-term partnership with Ryan Gosling. However, before her days in the spotlight, she had different life goals. Mendes wanted to be a nun, and we wonder if she knew that they don't get paid or laid.
As a child, it was a dream, but as Mendes got older, she realized it wasn't the life for her. Mendes said that she wanted to buy her mom a house eventually, so she needed a job that would pay, and that's where the convent dream ended.
18. Angelina Jolie Wore A Vial Of Billy Bob Thornton's Blood Around Her Neck
Angelina Jolie used to be much more eccentric. When she was married to her second husband, Billy Bob Thornton, they were both filming movies in different parts of the world, so Jolie came home with a kit one day to surprise her husband.
Jolie and Thornton took a razor blade, pricked their fingertips, and exchanged vials of blood. Yes, you read that right; we did say a vial of blood. They wore them as a necklace charm to feel closer to each other while filming. Most people call, text, or give a stuffed animal, but they took it to the next level.
19. George Lucas Employs His Own 14-Person Fire Department
George Lucas created two of the most successful film franchises in history (Indiana Jones and Star Wars), so he has endless amounts of money to spend. With a net worth of $5.6 billion, Lucas can pretty much buy whatever he wants, and he is putting that money to good use.
When you are rich and famous, you shouldn't have to wait on the local fire department to come to save you. Instead, Lucas decided to employ a team of 14 firemen to protect his $100 million "Skywalker Ranch," which is full of priceless memorabilia.
20. Bono Once Bought A Plane Ticket For His Hat
Like many celebrities on this list, Bono is rich beyond his wildest dreams because of the success of U2. Therefore, when Bono needs something on tour, he can spend whatever he needs to get it including his hat. When he left for his tour and forgot his hat, he went to great lengths to get it.
Bono paid $1,200 for a plane ticket for his hat. Can you imagine asking a hat to switch seats so you could sit closer to your family? We would be so irritated that someone bought a seat just for their hat, but it's Bono, so you can't really argue with logic.
21. David Bowie's Eye Was Permanently Dilated Due To A Fistfight When He Was 15
The late and great David Bowie was quite the performer, and his memory continues to live on. When we look back on his photos, something was interesting we noticed about his eyes. We know he has always seen the world a bit different, but maybe there is a reason for that.
When Bowie was 15, he got into a fistfight, which caused one of his eyes to stay dilated. It just added to his out-of-the-box looks, but not many people noticed due to his makeup and colorful outfits.
22. Matthew Broderick Was In A Car Accident That Left Two People Dead
Most of us know Matthew Broderick for his iconic performances in Ferris Bueller's Day Off and The Producers, but there is something dark in his past that still haunts him to this day. When he was driving in Ireland, Broderick got in a car accident that almost sent him to prison for ten years.
The car crash left two people dead, and it's hard for Broderick to think about it. Broderick was charged with reckless driving, and he probably only got off because of his celebrity status. It is pretty sad because two lives were lost in the crash.
23. Julia Roberts' Smile Is Insured For $30 Million
Julia Roberts is undeniably gorgeous, and her looks have definitely helped her succeed in her career. When your career relies heavily on your looks, it is important to make sure you maintain things and keep them looking good.
Many celebrities insure their most famous asset, and Julia Roberts has her signature smile insured for a whopping $30 million. If something were to happen to her face, she would definitely have the money to get it fixed and restored to perfection.
24. Kim Basinger Bought An Entire Town In Georgia
What do you do when you have so much money in your bank account? You buy an entire town, of course! Kim Basinger is known for her performance in LA Confidential, and she used her money to buy an 8,000-person town for $20 million.
She is from Georgia originally, and she felt a connection to the small town. Today it is used as a cultural destination and a place for filmmakers to shoot movies. It must be interesting to ask a realtor to buy an entire city because they don't witness that every day.
25. Madonna Actually Wanted To Do The VMA Kiss With J.Lo
Unless you have been living under a rock for most of your life, then you probably saw or heard about the iconic VMA kiss between Madonna and Britney, but that wasn't Madonna's first choice. We bet that Britney didn't know what it feels like to be a second choice until now.
Instead of Britney, Madonna's first choice was J.Lo, but she obviously said no. Also, the producers knew Britney and Christina Aguilera had a weird history and wouldn't want to perform together, but they must have paid the big bucks to get this moment to happen.
26. Dennis Rodman Claims To Have 47 Siblings
We have all told a few white lies in our lives, but never something this exaggerated. When someone asks you how many siblings you have, you wouldn't hesitate to give them an honest answer, right? Well, Dennis Rodman has a different point of view.
Dennis Rodman claimed his father was responsible for fathering 47 children, including Dennis. However, his father only had 29 children. That is a ridiculous amount regardless if he botched the truth or not. We wonder how many baby mama's he left high and dry.
27. Matthew Perry Lost Part Of His Middle Finger As A Child
Matthew Perry is one of our favorite actors simply because he played Chandler on Friends in such a relatable way, whether people agree or not. While many people might not notice his tiny flaw, eagle-eyed Friends fans picked up on it recently.
As a child, Perry lost part of his middle finger in a car door accident (ouch), and it is now the same length as his index finger. While this is not the most tragic or shocking thing, we bet you will never be able to watch Friends again without noticing this on his hand.
28. Martha Stewart Started Her Career As A Fashion Model
Before Martha Stewart became the famous homemaker and got herself into an insider trading scandal, she was living the dream of being a fashion model. The business mogul was making $50/hour modeling for brands like Chanel in college, and she looked gorgeous doing it.
She probably never imagined herself owning a multi-million dollar business, going to jail, or having a talk show with Snoop Dogg. She must be surprised how her life turned out, but since she has been out of jail, she is doing well, and it's almost as if the scandal never happened.
29. Snoop Dogg And Brandy Are Cousins
Some people in Hollywood are proud to show off their other famous relatives, while some are more private about specific relations. For example, Snoop Dogg and Brandy are first cousins, but the two are not public about this information.
Although they are not quick to publicize this information, they have worked together on music in the past. It's odd that they don't talk about it more because if we were either of their cousins, we would be saying it loud and proud.
30. Katy Perry Keeps A Lock Of Taylor Swift's Hair In Her Purse
Katy Perry is known for many things, but we never imagined she would be this kind of person. In an interview, Perry was asked what she had in her purse, and most people assumed it would be money, maybe some lipstick, or a mirror, but she had something highly unexpected.
Perry revealed that she kept a lock of Taylor Swift's and Miley Cyrus' hair in her purse. Apparently, she asked them for some hair backstage at the Grammys. Quite frankly, we would be highly concerned if our friends asked for some of our hair.
31. Tom Cruise Purchased An Actual Sonogram Machine To See His Baby Every Day
Some people say they love their children, but how far will they really go? Tom Cruise was on a whole different level of fatherly love when Katie Holmes was pregnant with Suri Cruise. Usually, people see their babies during monthly check-ups with the gynocologist, but Cruise wasn't satisfied with that.
Instead of waiting to see her on the monitor at doctor's visits, he decided to spend $200,000 on a medical sonogram machine to look at her every day. If we were Katie, we would have been so annoyed to lie there each time just so that he would be satisfied.
32. Fran Drescher Believes She And Her Former Husband Were Abducted By Aliens
If you haven't seen The Nanny starring Fran Drescher, what were you watching on Nick-At-Nite? Besides our love for her, we found this fact to be concerning, but hey, everyone is a little bit out of their minds, right? At least that's true in Hollywood.
Drescher whole-heartedly believes that aliens abducted her and her former husband. She thinks this is true because of the scars they have on their hands from where aliens implanted chips, or so she claims. She also said the reason they met was because they were programmed; it's farfetched but kind of romantic.
33. Michael J. Fox's Real Middle Name Doesn't Start With "J"
Throughout his entire career, Michael J. Fox had us believe that the J was his middle initial. However, everything we have been told is an absolute lie. Michael took the J to pay homage to his idol, Michael J. Pollard.
In fact, Fox's middle name is actually Andrew. We guess he didn't like it as much as his chosen name, and we don't really understand why. How could we have fallen for this lie for so many years? Who else has been fooling us with their stage names?
34. Macaulay Culkin Is In A Band That Sings Songs About Pizza
After Macaulay Culkin achieved great fame as a child, he fell off the radar for a while. Each year he comes back on into the spotlight around Christmas time for obvious reasons, but there are still a few things people don't know about him, like his underrated band.
Culkin's band is called the Pizza Underground, and they are a Velvet Underground cover band that only sings about pizza. We haven't listened to any of his songs yet, but we can imagine that they will make you crave a cheezy pizza.
35. Waka Flocka Flame Paid Someone $50K A Year To Be His Blunt Roller
While many places have been legalizing marijuana, it might be time to perfect your blunt rolling skills because there is serious money in the work. Rapper Waka Flocka Flame reportedly paid someone a salary of $50,000 to roll all his blunts. That seems like a sick job to have.
Can you imagine getting a yearly review in a position like this? "Uh, you didn't roll enough blunts on 4/20, and you should have done better estimating Waka's needs. However, your speed has greatly increased since you entered this position."
36. Paul Newman Taught Jake Gyllenhaal How To Drive
We know that actors tend to gravitate towards other actors for opportunities and understanding connections. However, some friendships or mentorships are an unlikely pairing that doesn't have to make sense. Many people don't know that Jake Gyllenhaal was rather close to the late Paul Newman.
Learning how to drive is a big step in a teenager's life, and usually something a person would do with their parents. However, Gyllenhaal actually learned how to drive from Newman. It seems like they had a strong bond and he was a mentor throughout Gyllenhaal's career.
37. Lucy Liu Says She Was Intimate With A Ghost
When you have spent most of your life in the spotlight, it can make you a little kooky. Lucy Lui is one of those celebrities that is secretly off her rocker because we didn't know she was into things like this. She claims she had intimate relations with a ghost, and we have questions.
First of all, how is that even physically possible? Should we have an exorcism to remove the ghost from her and the home? It's always the ones you least suspect are actually the craziest. We don't know if she said this as a joke or really meant it, but we are slightly concerned.
38. Jonathan Franzen Writes His Novels Blindfolded
Do you ever feel like you are too distracted at work or at home? We have all had moments of procrastination because there is so much going on around us, but we never knew a good way to block those distractions. Author Jonathan Franzen might have found the best way to keep those distractions at bay.
While writing his novels, Franzen wears a blindfold so he can only focus on his work. He also wore earplugs, and it took him four years to finish his latest novel. If that's not dedication, we don't know what is.
39. Michelle Pfeiffer Spent Some Time In A Cult When She Was Young
Just when you think you know everything about your favorite celebrity, think again. When Michelle Pfeiffer was younger, she spent some time in a cult that believed you only needed air and sunlight to survive. She could have been in a worse cult, but this is still questionable.
It's no wonder Pfeiffer has stayed so skinny all these years; she has been living off sunlight for food. Maybe the cult's idea was that people are closely related to plants, so if they try hard enough, they can also do photosynthesis.
40. Tom Hanks Has A Type Writer Collection
No one can deny that Tom Hanks is Hollywood's most adorable man. He just seems so sweet and innocent, and we love his persona. One interesting thing about him is that he has a typewriter collection, and that is the most precious thing we have heard all day.
Hanks owns over 250 typewriters, but he still has to do some work on his laptop occasionally. His collection started when he took a plastic typewriter to get fixed in 1978, but the shop refused, so he decided to invest in a high quality one, and the rest is history.
41. Harry Styles Has Four Nipples
Lately, everyone has been talking about Harry Styles, and we are part of that crowd. He has been killing it in all aspects of his career, from modeling for Vogue and breaking gender stereotypes, to creating killer music and videos to go along with it.
However, unless you are a diehard fan since his early One Direction days, you might not know that Harry Styles has four nipples. It is caused by a condition called polythelia, and it doesn't seem to freak many people out, especially since his tattoos kind of cover them.
42. There Was Supposed To Be A Sixth Spice Girl
There's Sporty, Scary, Posh, Ginger, and Baby Spice, but what if there was a sixth member of the group? The Spice Girls were and still are the most iconic girl group of the '90s and early 2000s, and no one can deny their legacy; however, it would have been much different with a sixth member.
Initially, Michelle Stephenson was going to be "Smart Spice" who was in college, but she didn't mix well with the other girls, so they kept it at five girls. She was also not a fan of the pop music the Spice Girls made, and to that, we say good riddance.
43. Ashton Kutcher Has Webbed Toes
When you watch an actor on TV or in a movie, you don't get to see their entire body or up close flaws they might have. For example, Ashton Kutcher apparently has webbed toes, and now we can't stop picturing his feet.
Kutcher must have been an incredible swimmer because he didn't need flippers to go fast since his webbed toes did all the work. Also, his real name isn't even Ashton; it's Chris, and Chris is the name of someone who would have webbed toes.
44. Oprah Has An Oprah Shaped Bathtub
Most people know that Oprah had a hard life growing up in Mississippi, and she came from humble beginnings. It took her a long time to work her way to the top, and now that she is there, she can buy and do whatever she wants.
One of her most bizarre purchases was a bathtub shaped like her body. As a child, she lived with her grandmother in a worn-down house that didn't have running water. Today she gives away cars like candy and bathes in her custom tub.
45. Jennifer Lawrence Got A Tattoo To Remind Her To Drink Water
Jennifer Lawrence always surprises us with her level of quirkiness. We can all relate to her problem of forgetting to stay hydrated at times, but we would never go as far as tattooing a note onto our bodies. Instead of setting a reminder in her phone, Lawrence decided to take things a step further.
Jennifer Lawrence got a tattoo that says "H2O" on her hand, so she will remember to drink water. She is like the guy from Momento, but instead of revenge, she is trying to give her body what it needs. That tattoo must be a unique conversation starter.
