THEY DON'T WORK OUT OR DIET TO STAY THIN!
Wondering how to get a body like Blake Lively's? Well guess what? You can't. No diet or exercise will apparently help, because Blake claims she doesn't have a fitness regimen or diet. It's just perfect magic star genes, guys. She even said at the Met Gala, "I ate a chicken pot pie before I came here!" Well, at least we're on the same diet as Blake.
THEY SPEND MILLIONS ON ARTWORK!
Brad Pitt is reportedly spending millions to add to his private collection of artwork. If it's anything like the Renaissance, were hoping he at least commissions some of these artists to paint some family portraits. That way we could preserve the Pitt-Jolie clan's beautiful mugs for the rest of time. And considering their growing numbers, it would keep some starving artists in business for years to come.
THEY PROTECT THEMSELVES FROM SWINE FLU WITH BLING!
Some people buy protective masks and Airborne. Not Katy Perry. She purchased a bejeweled pig ring to don during the swine flu epidemic. She added on her blog "Kitty Purry….wonders when kitty flu is gonna hit." To us, it's a frightening epidemic, but to celebs, it's just trendy accessories and blog fodder.
THEY GET $49 MILLION PAYCHECKS!
Tom Hanks is one of the highest paid stars in Hollywood. However, one would think the exorbitant star paychecks would deflate a little bit in this recession. Well one would be thinking wrong. Tom Hanks may be getting $49 million for "Angels & Demons." Try to unravel that code.
THEY CELEBRATE ANNIVERSARIES LIKE WEDDINGS!
The traditional first anniversary gift is paper. In Mariah Carey and Nick Cannon's world, we're assuming this paper is money. And, trust us, lots and lots of paper was used at their first anniversary party. Fifty of their nearest and dearest celebrated the couple at Moon Nightclub in Vegas with a five-tiered cake, 1,000 balloons, and a slideshow looking back over the year. Understandable though, as one year of married life for celebs is the real-person equivalent to a 50-year golden anniversary.
THEY SING FOR A BASEBALL STADIUM WHEN THEY CAN'T SING!
Who doesn't love the song "Take Me Out to the Ball Game"? Remember when you sang it drunk and off-key at the last baseball game you went to? What if you sang it into a microphone for an entire stadium of Chicago Cubs fans to hear? Well then you would be Denise Richards, who sang an atrocious rendition of the song. But we're sure she was forgiven considering the amount of times the male Midwestern population has watched "Wild Things."
THEY LOVE THEIR MOMS SO MUCH THAT IT'S WEIRD!
There are mama's boys … and then there's Shia LaBeouf. He recently said in a Playboy interview that the sexiest woman he knows is his mother. Even though we wish he'd stop there, he continues, "If I could meet my mother and marry her, I would. I would be with my mother now, if she weren't my mother, as sick as that sounds." It's understandable that a hot, ego-addled star would think the sexiest woman in the world is the lady that gave birth to him. Just like 16th century Spanish royalty, we suspect celebrity incest is on the horizon — at least until they all start suffering from severe mental defects. Oh, wait …
THEY HAVE NOT ONE, BUT TWO LOUIS VUITTON DOG CARRIERS!
Ashley Tisdale was recently spotted at the airport toting two designer dog carriers to take her designer puppies on her way back from a Mexican vacation (poor girl works herself so hard). You can't see them from here, but the puppies have little LV logos embroidered all over them.
THEY HEAD-BUTT FASHION DESIGNERS (ALLEGEDLY)!
Leave it to good old Kiefer Sutherland to make the Met's gala drama a little more than couture cat fights. He reportedly head-butted designer Jack McCollough at the SubMercer afterparty so hard that it broke his nose. All for the honor of Brooke Shields, though. Surely, he can claim the Jack Bauer defense. Just ask Woody Harrelson … pleading "too into character" totally works.
THEY HAVE A LAUNDRY LIST OF HOTEL DEMANDS!
Oh, stars and their hotel demands. Always so fun when a disgruntled concierge leaks this kind of stuff. We had previously reported that Britney Spears demanded a stripper pole in the Dorchester Hotel in London, but it doesn't end there. Other requests include a room that has never been smoked in, 100-watt bulbs, a fresh selection of flowers (that Britney will arrange), chick lit novels and magazines, and DVDs of her favorite Marilyn Monroe movies. The flowers, novels, and old movies are pretty cute. But a room that has never been smoked in? Brit, you may want to consider moving your British concert to, well, somewhere else besides Europe.
