20 Bizarre Celebrity Quirks (And Why They're A Thing)

We have a tendency to ignore superstars' small idiosyncrasies and mannerisms. They are, however, visible upon closer inspection. They're everywhere, man. Cracked invited their fans to show us sides of celebrities we'd never seen before. You will never be able to unsee it once you have seen it.
