18 Facts About Jeff Goldblum We Could And Should Share With the World

Jeff Goldblum is a hot weirdo. We all know this, and we all accept this. It’s why he’s Dr. Ian Malcolm. It’s why he thinks Earth Girls Are Easy. It’s why he was The Fly. There is just something about Jeff Goldblum that makes being a little awkward immensely cool. No one looks good in a fedora in 2022, yet Jeff Goldblum could. He shouldn’t, but he could.

Yet, in spite of being a tall drink of stumbling debonair, there are still some things about Jeff that even the most die-hard Goldbloomers (that’s his fanbase, at least we’d like to think so) don’t know about him. Like the time he sold pencils to prisoners, or the time he tried to hire a sex worker when he was 13, or that his poop is orange most of the time.

Hot. Weirdo. Here are details on those and other interesting facts about Jeff Goldblum.
