Their exceptional nature extends even to the things they derive joy in doing. But some celebrities like these 10 listed below rather love to do the weirdest things. They prefer to do things that most of us would probably regard as creepy and weird whenever they can spare a moment to have fun. Here are the weird hobbies they find way interesting.
Mila Kunis (World of Warcraft & Star Trek)
Kunis revealed her weird hobby to Jimmy Kimmel in an interview, saying she was once a huge fan of video game and was a keen player. She confessed that she spends most of her leisure time playing “World of Warcraft”. She said she was badly addicted to the game so much so that she had to push herself to give up on the game in order to be able to do better things with her time. Kunis also confessed how much she loves Star Trek and that she has gone to conventions, which makes her geekier than she looks. Till now she is over excited about it and continues to talk about it with excessive enthusiasm.
David Arquette (Knitting)
Professional wrestler Arquette is among the celebrities whose hobbies are weird. He has a hobby that is mostly ascribed to older people quite opposite of what gents like him would love to do in their leisure time. Surprisingly, he loves Knitting! Arquette has influenced the world of knitting by sharing both his love and talents for the yarned hobby! His grandmother taught him how to knit at an early age and since then he has remained proud of his skills and even graced the cover of “Celebrity Scarves 2: Hollywood Knits for Breast Cancer Research”. Now that’s a big influence on knitting especially on how people perceive it as an activity for just older people!
Claudia Schiffer (Bug Collection)
Claudia is among the big names in the fashion world. She has featured on the covers of more than a thousand magazines and is among those receiving the highest pay in fashion industry. Surprisingly the tall blonde loves to spend her leisure time collecting bugs quite contrary to what we expect a model to love. Of course most models won’t like to get involved in any activity that could get them dirty and most of them have a phobia for creepy animals. But the self-proclaimed bug fanatic, Schiffer is fascinated with spiders and gets pleasure in her insect collection. For the great love she has for spider picking, the logo of her clothing line reflects spiders.
Tom Hanks (Vintage Manual Typewriters)

He finds his hobby absolutely exciting and he sees it as a wonderful of way of working out. He climbs the tree with his children sometimes. Many believe Cowell’s childhood when he was bullied and could only escape by climbing the nearest tree triggered his love for the activity.
Bob Barker (Karate)
The ex television game show host Barker may be known by many as a huge supporter of animal rights particularly spraying and neutering pets but he is in reality a keen fan of karate and an expert in it too!

Barker loves his hobby and it brings him so much pleasure that he even received karate training from Chuck Norris himself.
Nicolas Cage (Superman)
Despite all the fame Cage has earned and the innumerable criticism he has seen in the course of his career, the actor and producer continues to live life on his own terms, including having great love for his favorite superhero, Superman. At his age, the Oscar-winning actor, Cage has a number of collectibles from the comic book and movie series, and even went as far as naming his son after Superman’s real name “Kal-El”. Plus he does not let any chance of collecting Superman memorabilia slip away. Irrespective of the fact that Cage’s aspiration nearly came alive after he was cast as Superman in a film directed by Tim Burton back in 1990s which didn’t take flight in the end, his love for Superman grows even more .
