We all have weird habits, compulsions and wants. Bizarre behavior and preferences are just part of being human – but we’ll admit, we love hearing that we’re not alone in doing and thinking some strange stuff. Here are five Latino stars who have confessed to some pretty weird things.
1. Weird Confessions: Demi Lovato
Demi Lovato: Steals Hotel Pillows
Perhaps the most recent confession comes from the X-Factor star, who on a recent Ellen show, shared her affinity for stealing hotel pillows. Telling Ellen that her pillow is “always clean,” she had to explain why. “I take a pillow from the hotel I’m staying in,” she said, as the audience laughed. When Ellen asked whether she takes a pillow from every hotel room she stays in, she responded, “Possibly. I’m not saying anything to confirm or deny this story.” Makes you feel a bit better about swiping those hotel shampoos, right?
2. Weird Confessions: Cheech Marin
Cheech: Wanted to be a Priest
In an exclusive interview with Richard Anthony Marin, aka Cheech, the Mexican American comedian copped to once thinking of becoming a priest earlier in life. When he thought more about it, however, (and upon realizing that relationships with women would be forbidden) he decided not to go through with it. Now, as an actor, he gets to play priests on screen!
3. Weird Confessions: Eva Longoria
Eva Longoria: Rubs Placenta on Her Face
Want radiant skin like Eva Longoria? The secret is human placenta! (Okay, kind of.) A fan of the EMK Placental cream, along with Madonna and Victoria Beckham, the skin cream cream line used to use human placental extract (yep!), but now (thankfully?) uses botanical extracts that mimic the proteins of a human placenta.
4. Weird Confessions: Mariah Carey
Mariah Carey: Sleeps 15 Hours a Day With 20 Humidifiers
We’re hoping Mariah is just one for hyperbole. The singer told Interview magazine in 2007, “I've got to sleep 15 hours to sing the way I want to.” She also told V magazine that she has a bad humidifier dependency. “Literally, I’ll have 20 humidifiers around my bed. Basically it’s like sleeping in a steam room.” We’re guessing with two young kids, her sleep habits have changed.
5. Weird Confessions: Cameron Diaz
Cameron Diaz: Hates Touching Doorknobs
Surprisingly, the actress has dealt with OCD, and her biggest problem seems to be with doorknobs. The actress admitted to using her elbows to open doors in order to avoid germy doorknobs. She also has admitted to wiping the doorknobs of her home so much that the paint has worn down. Thankfully, we think she’s moved forward a bit, as she told a reporter a few years ago that she “made my peace with it.”
6. Weird Confessions: Jennifer Lopez
Jennifer Lopez: Sniffs Grapefruit Oil to Curb Appetite
J.Lo apparently helps to keep her figure trim by carrying around a vial of grapefruit oil to sniff. The scent apparently activates nerves to break down fats and also reduces cravings. Um, okay.
