While celebrities might seem they’re in a different world than us at times, that isn’t the case. They are still human and still often go through the same trials and tribulations that most people do. They still get sick, still have to wait in traffic and some even have money problems.
Also, just like you may enjoy playing video games or read books, celebrities have hobbies. While many celebrity hobbies are pretty normal and things you might expect, others are not. In fact, some celebrities have hobbies that you would not expect. These range from the unexpected, to the difficult, to the plain old strange!
So without any further ado, let’s look at a couple of celebrities who have hobbies that you might not expect!
Jonah Hill is a multi-time Academy Award nominated actor and has shown himself capable of playing a range of different roles. Another thing he is often noted for is his frequent changes in weight. He will often transform from role to role, going from being a larger man to a thin one, and back again. However, he seems to be committed more to his health now than ever before.
Hill has recently begun to practice Brazilian Jiu Jitsu, a martial art focused on grappling. He has developed quite a love for the sport and says he tries to do it at least a few times a week. He took up the sport recently as he has always thought it was a beautiful art form, but wasn’t interested in it for a long time as his high school bullies used to do it.
Brad Pitt is without a doubt one of the best and most famous actors of our generation. He has played a wide range of different characters, many of which use guns. That makes sense as Pitt himself has been a longtime owner of firearms. In fact, he got his very first gun in Kindergarten when he inherited his grandfather’s shotgun.
While this is very young to own a gun, his father instilled a sense of respect for the weapon. It was ensured that Pitt knew how to safely own and care for the dangerous weapon, which is important for any gun owner to know, young or old. Whether an older adult teaches you, or you attend hand gun classes in Bellevue or another city, safety is paramount when it comes to handling weapons.
Justin Bieber is without a doubt one of the biggest names in music and entertainment today. However, when he isn’t selling out shows or making appearances, the Canadian pop star has an unlikely talent and hobby. He has been solving Rubik’s Cubes for years and has gotten pretty good.
Through a lot of practice, Bieber is now able to completely solve a Rubik’s Cube in under 2 minutes. But while Bieber can finish a Rubik’s Cube a lot faster than most people, there are still those who can do it much faster. In fact, the world record sits at barely over 4 seconds! Either way, this is still a cool hobby that many people likely don’t know Bieber enjoys.
Tom Hanks is one of the most beloved actors alive today. He has been wowing audiences around the world with his performances on the big screen for decades. But around the same time he started to find some success in film, he found another hobby; collecting typewriters.
He has been collecting old typewriters for decades and has amassed a collection of over 100 of them so far. He loves them so much that Hanks actually wrote a book of short stories in which he mentions a typewriter in every one.
Hopefully, this article has given you a behind the scenes look at some of the hobbies of your favorite celebrities.
