It isn’t a secret that celebrities display some eccentric behavior in many aspects of their lives. In some cases, that extends to the food they eat and how they eat it. Some unusual eating habits are kept for health reasons, while others just love bizarre food combinations. These strange eating habits are just the tip of the culinary iceberg regarding the wacky food quirks that some celebrities have developed. Continue reading to see all the strange food combinations celebrities eat and the strange ways in which they eat them.
1. Meghan Markle Has A Special Pasta Sauce
Meghan Markle is known for many things, from being a successful actress to causing drama in the royal family. However, one thing most people don’t know about her is the weird thing she adds to her pasta sauce.
Markle makes her cheesy pasta, then adds mashed zucchini and bullion to it. It’s no wonder the Queen was never a fan of her; who puts mashed zucchini in pasta? Some people are obsessed with her recipe, but we will stick with Gigi Hadid’s spicy cream sauce instead.
If you are a fan of Ed Sheeran, you know that he is obsessed with ketchup. He loves it so much that he has multiple Heinz tattoos and doesn’t leave the house without a stash of emergency ketchup. Sheeran won’t have a meal without the condiment.
Sheeran became so frustrated with places that didn’t serve ketchup that he now makes key members of his entourage carry extra ketchup as well. Heinz featured him in their commercial because they love that he is so obsessed.
The best part about going to the movies has to be the buttery popcorn that costs way more than it should. Selena Gomez has found a way to upgrade popcorn even further despite all that salt and butter, by dipping it in pickle juice.
Gomez calls it Texas-style popcorn, and it honestly sounds amazing. To make it, she takes a bowl of popcorn, adds tabasco, and finishes it off by pouring pickle juice on top. It sounds like it would make a mess and cause the popcorn to be soggy, but we are definitely going to try it.
Have you ever thought to pair ketchup and bananas? We got a little nauseous when we heard about this combination because it does not sound like it would be tasty. This is one of the weirdest combinations we have heard so far.
Well, if you want to eat like Beyonce, you should try ketchup and bananas together because it is one of her favorite treats. We wonder if Ed Sheeran would approve of this because he is obsessed with ketchup. Beyonce is also known for carrying hot sauce in her purse.
5. Adrienne Bailon Puts Fruit Punch In Her Tuna Salad
In our opinion, the only time fruit and fish should be mixed is in fish tacos. However, Adrienne Bailon would disagree because she adds this odd ingredient to her tuna salad that should be illegal. The idea came to her when she would make snacks after school.
Bailon makes herself a standard tuna sandwich and then dunks it in fruit punch before eating. It sounds genuinely disgusting because tuna and fruit should never be paired, but everyone has their own preferences. Bailon also adds bananas to her quesadillas.
Many people have food combinations that they love, but other people think they are truly bizarre. For example, Channing Tatum’s favorite sandwich is something you would never think to put together because it would probably make you queazy.
Tatum’s favorite sandwich is peanut butter and jelly with a layer of crunchy Cheetos in the middle. We would never think to pair a cheesy snack with PB&J because it is already the perfect combo of sweet and salty. We can’t knock it until we try it, but we don’t know if we can try it.
7. John Legend Has To Eat Chicken Before Every Show
While his wife is known as the chef of the house, John Legend has some specific food preferences. Specifically, Legend has to have roasted chicken and steamed vegetables before every single show. It must be some sort of luck ritual.
Legend also has to have it exactly 30 minutes before his shows start. He has been doing this for a while, and he particularly loves broccoli as a side. We wonder if Chrissy cooks this or he prefers to order from the same place every time.
We have heard of people eating chicken and waffles, but Danica Patrick likes to take things up a notch and go down a classier route. The NASCAR star must have been looking for the most luxurious way to eat waffles, and this fit her expensive palette.
Patrick is a meat connoisseur and will try any kind, from bison burgers to filet. However, one of her guilty pleasures is eating steak with waffles. We can see how this would taste good because it’s sweet and savory. Someone should add this to a menu.
Taylor Swift has to be one of the most popular singers of today. She has been topping charts for over a decade and everyone, regardless of age or gender, loves her. Although she seems sweet, she likes to pair something tart with every meal.
Swift loves to drink lavender-flavored lemonade every time she eats a sandwich, and it sounds pretty good. It doesn’t sound that strange until you realize she has to have this every time she eats a sandwich.
Gwyneth Paltrow is known for her bizarre beauty routine and eating habits. While we like to mock her insane lifestyle, she must be doing something right because she is ageless. In her third cookbook, she shared a drink that she has as a special treat, and you might be confused.
Paltrow drinks a mix of almond milk, coconut sugar, minced ginger, and toasted sesame oil. She said it smells like salad dressing, but tastes amazing on a rainy afternoon. If Gwyneth Paltrow drinks it, we think everyone should at least try it.
Have you ever thought about food in the shower? Have you ever brought food in the shower? We’re going to assume most people haven’t done this unless they were super drunk, but bringing food in the shower is a normal thing for Jessica Biel.
As a mom of two young children, Biel told Jimmy Fallon that her morning shower is the only time she has free time to enjoy her breakfast. We would think the food would get soggy because of the water or fall in the shower.
Pregnancy cravings are very common, and the most stereotypical one is pickles with peanut butter or ice cream. Although Blake Lively is a stunning celebrity, she was not immune to weird pregnancy cravings.
When she was pregnant for the first time, Lively would send her husband Ryan Reynolds to buy organic, hand-churned pumpkin ice cream. The weird part is that she would add artisan pickles to it. That’s something only a pregnant person could enjoy.
13. Kourtney Kardashian Has 6 Steps To Eat A Kit Kat
It has been quite a few years since Kourtney Kardashian shared how she eats her Kit Kats, but we are here to remind you. Unlike a normal person, Kourtney has a six-step system for eating the chocolate-covered wafers.
Kourtney splits the bar, bites both ends, eats the chocolate off the long sides, then the top, then splits each of the wafer layers once she finishes the outer chocolate shell. She recommends everyone try her method, but we have tried it, and it is a waste of time.
Some people are very picky about the food they eat, and Katy Perry is one of those people. Perry might not have an unusual food combo, but she will only eat chicken nuggets in a certain shape.
For some unknown reason, Perry will only eat chicken nuggets that are in the shape of a boot. That is quite specific, and we wonder how she manages to find boot-shaped nuggets every time she wants to eat them.
15. Tori Spelling Puts Gummy Bears On Almost Every Dish
While Tori Spelling’s husband is a professionally trained chef, she likes to try some strange things in the kitchen. Her husband has definitely helped with her culinary skills, but she adds one secret ingredient to every dish regardless if it makes sense or not.
Spelling likes to add gummy bears to every meal she makes. Can you imagine eating a salad and finding a random gummy bear? We would never pair these with savory dishes or even all sweet dishes but to each their own.
16. Chrissy Teigen Mixes More Than One Cereal In The Morning
Chrissy Teigen might have a few cookbooks with incredibly tasty recipes, but those recipes didn’t matter when she was pregnant. Like many people, she got some serious cravings and would mix Fruity Pebbles and Captain Crunch.
Our tastebuds would be confused to mix fruit and oaty peanut butter. However, it seems like it could taste like PB&J in a bowl. Teigen couldn’t get enough of it, but some people might not like the crazy amount of sugar.
Ever since we watched The Crown, we have wondered what the Queen likes to eat because it’s not something they talk much about in the show. In case you were also curious, the Queen likes to keep things simple, which isn’t much of a shocker.
Queen Elizabeth has a simple palette and prefers to eat a bowl of plain cornflakes and tea. As the Queen, she could have a chef make whatever she wants for breakfast, but she chooses to eat a very basic meal.
18. Dale Earnhardt Jr. Combines The Strangest Things For His Signature Sandwich
Some people absolutely hate mayonnaise, so if you are one of them keep scrolling because this might gross you out. Racecar drive Dale Earnhardt Jr. has one weird combination that we can’t understand and it is mayonnaise and banana sandwiches.
We wonder what possessed him to combine these ingredients because we would never even put them near each other. Are you curious to try this sandwich? It might give you some tummy troubles if you aren’t used to it.
Jennifer Lawrence is one of our favorite celebrities because she is always honest and real. She has never encouraged crazy diet culture and takes every opportunity to tell people how much she loves food. She even went as far as saying her signature scent is wine because it seeps out of her pores.
However, her strange snack combo is taking a slice of pizza with southern chili and noodles, and then she tops it with another slice of pizza. Lawrence calls it her chili pizza sandwich, and it seems like a lot for a snack, but we will take her word that it is delicious.
While some people think about animals and refuse to eat them because they don’t want to hurt living creatures, Nicolas Cage thinks differently. He thinks about how his food mates, which is something people usually try not to think about.
Cage refuses to eat animals that do not mate in a dignified manner. Therefore, he doesn’t eat pigs because they do not have dignified sex. He mainly eats fish, poultry, and vegetables because they have a classy kind of love.
21. Jennifer Lopez Stirs Her Coffee Counterclockwise
When you stir a drink like coffee, you probably don’t think much about the way you are stirring it as long as it mixes. It seems strange to question it, but Jennifer Lopez is very adamant about how her coffee is stirred.
Every morning, JLo must stir her coffee counterclockwise. If she stirs it clockwise, she might not drink it because it goes against her daily routine. She has never revealed why she does this, but it is quite strange.
22. Rihanna Can’t Get Enough Of Flaming Hot Cheetos
While you would think celebrities would have to keep a strict diet to stay in shape so that they always look good in front of the cameras, they actually eat pretty normally. Rihanna has never been a strict diet person or someone who promotes crazy eating habits.
One of her favorite snacks is Flaming Hot Cheetos, and she has them regularly. Rihanna always has packs of them in her home, but we don’t know how she doesn’t have stomach issues from eating them so often. They are seriously spicy.
Kylie Jenner has made many videos about her daily routines and what she eats in a day, and while most of it is normal, some of the things she enjoys are a bit strange. For most of her life, Jenner would eat her cereal completely dry.
In 2018, she tried cereal with milk for the first time, and it was a revelation. How could she have gone most of her life without trying cereal and milk together? Who eats cereal dry every single time? Milk is kind of essential for cereal, in our opinion.
When you have a sore throat, you might have gargled with salt water to make it feel better, but you have probably never swallowed that water. Even when you go into the ocean, you have to try not to swallow the water. However, Jessica Alba doesn’t feel the same way.
Alba takes a glass of water and mixes grainy salt into it before drinking it. This is supposed to help her maintain her blood sugar levels and regulate her blood pressure. She drinks this after a workout if she feels dizzy, but you can’t drink too much of it.
Ringo Starr might have starred in a Pizza Hut commercial with The Monkees, but he has never eaten pizza. As a child, Starr found out that he was allergic to onion and curry. Many pizza sauces have onion in them, so he couldn’t eat it.
We can’t imagine going our entire lives without having a single slice of pizza because it is so delicious. Why couldn’t he have had pizza without sauce? He was also not able to eat curry either, which is something we could probably live without.
Padma Lakshmi might be the host of Top Chef, but one of her favorite foods is something none of those talented chefs would think to make. Lakshmi loves something she calls “pomtoast.”
Lakshmi takes sourdough bread, toasts it, adds peanut butter and many pomegranate seeds. We can imagine this would taste good because you get the saltiness of the peanut butter and the tartness of the pomegranate seeds. We would give it a try.
27. Giada De Laurentiis Dips Her Cookies In Lemonade
Although she is a Food Network chef, Giada de Laurentiis has one weird food combination that we would never think to try. Most people on the planet would pair a chocolate cookie with milk because it is a natural combination. However, de Laurentiis does it differently.
De Laurentiis likes to dip chocolate cookies or vanilla wafers in lemonade. She also said that she sometimes dips them in a fizzy beverage, and recommends it to others. If she is a real chef, she would never say that. Do we need to check her credentials?
Kristin Cavallari is known for her show Very Cavallari and her very public breakup from Jay Cutler. However, one thing people don’t know about her is her stricter eating habits. In her book, she described what she usually eats, and some people weren’t surprised.
Cavallari said she likes to have burgers during the week, but she doesn’t use a bun because she sticks to a low-carb diet. Well, if she looks like that after having three children, maybe we should all be eating burgers without buns.
29. Flo Rida Spices Up His Mac N’ Cheese With This Snack Food
We all know Flo Rida for his mid-2000s hits, but did you know he figured out the most delicious food combo? Some might think it is weird, but we think this idea is pure genius and should inspire Cheetos to create their own mac n’ cheese.
Mac n’ cheese is amazing, and he likes to add crumbled spicy hot Cheetos on top. What could be bad about that? The creaminess from the cheese and the spiciness and crunch from the Cheetos is the perfect pairing when you want to take it up a notch. Thanks, Flo Rida!
While we would never think to try this because our dentist would be upset, Shailene Woodly doesn’t brush her teeth with toothpaste anymore. She said one of her friends made clay toothpaste that you swallow, and she wanted to try it.
Woodley discovered that clay is good because your body doesn’t absorb it. Also, it has a negative charge, so it bonds to negative isotopes. It can help clean heavy metals out of your body and detoxify you from the inside out. It seems like to would just taste like she is eating dirt.
We have heard of people dipping pizza crust in coke and people eating peanut butter snacks with a side of coke, but we have never heard of someone putting salted peanuts right into their drink like singer Jake Owen.
Owen’s father introduced him to this salty combination when he was 12, and he loved it. He would take salted peanuts and drop them directly into his coke. It seems like he still does it because it is a nostalgic memory.
Back in 2016, the internet roasted Michael Buble hard because of this picture of him eating corn on the cob. It wasn’t that he was eating corn on the cob, it was the fact that he was eating it in a way people had never seen before.
Rather than holding it horizontally like everyone else on the planet, Buble ate it vertically, and it made people uncomfortable. People on Reddit had a field day with photoshop and made the picture not so family-friendly as you can imagine. Buble responded on Twitter, saying, “This is vegetable harassment.”
Gordon Ramsay is particular about how food is cooked, and if someone makes something wrong, they will probably be called “an idiot sandwich.” While most people stick to three meals a day, the British chef chooses to have five smaller meals throughout the day.
The light meals that he has every few hours keep him full for longer and help him stay in such great shape despite being around food all day. It also keeps him energized because he never feels too hungry and tired in between meals.
34. Alison Sweeney Adds Something Sweet To Her Burgers
You might recognize Alison Sweeney as the narrator and host from The Biggest Loser, and one thing she doesn’t talk about on the show is her obsession with blueberries. Sweeney loves blueberries so much that she puts them on almost every meal.
For example, instead of putting ketchup on her burger, Sweeny adds blueberry jam to her turkey burgers. It sounds like a strange combination, but we are almost intrigued to try it for ourselves. Who knows, it might be amazing.
With all of his money, we bet Warren Buffett could buy a lifetime supply of Coca-Cola. While regularly consuming soda isn’t great for your health, Buffett couldn’t care because his obsession is too strong.
Buffet consumes at least five bottles of coke on a regular day even though his doctors have told him to slow down. When you are a billionaire, it doesn’t matter what your doctors tell you because you can afford whatever medical treatments you might need.
Andrew Zimmern is another celebrity chef who has tasted some of the best food globally. He had a show on the Travel Channel called Bizarre Foods with Andrew Zimmern, where he would find the strangest foods worldwide.
While he has tasted some of the weirdest foods, he doesn’t have a strange food inclination. Instead, he collects mustards and stores them in his fridge. We don’t know how long mustard lasts, but we hope he isn’t eating the old ones.
Comedian Chelsea Peretti is best known for her role in Brooklyn Nine-Nine, but people might think differently if they knew how she eats cake. We think there might be something wrong with her because she eats around the frosting.
The frosting is the best part of the cake, so why would someone not eat it. When she posted a picture of a piece of cake she ate, the internet went wild. Peretti told James Cordon that the cake-loving community had some problems with this method.
Scott Foley starred on TV shows like Felicity and Scandal, but in 2017, he grossed out the internet with his weird food combination. In an Instagram video, he put a dollop of Skippy peanut butter on his scrambled eggs and people were outraged.
Foley followed up the post by saying, “You guys are insane.” However, he refused to admit that his bizarre combination was anything but delicious. We don’t even know how to justify this one because it is truly bizarre.
With all the new complicated coffee orders coming from Tik Tok, baristas have a hard job. Although most of the popular coffee orders are loaded with sugar, Tim Tebow takes his coffee differently. You can recreate his coffee order in just a few simple steps.
Take equal amounts of decaf and regular coffee and whip up organic cream. Top it off with sugarless almond milk, and you will have yourself a Tebow coffee. You can also add some stevia to sweeten it up.
Gene Simmons has never been on to go with the norms of society. The Kiss bassist might be known for his long tongue and intense makeup, but people also know him for the controversy he caused in January 2020 on Twitter.
Simmons posted a picture of his cereal with ice cubes in it, and people went wild. He asked if anyone else did that, and the overwhelming answer was no. His wife even tweeted a reply saying, “No! No! No!” That’s harsh.
