We tend to think of important personalities as larger-than-life figures. They become idols to whom we look up as beings who are more than ordinary because we forget who they truly are.

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. Some actors are noted for their eccentricities, which help them stand out and sometimes help them establish a fan base. We've compiled a list of some celebrities with strange idiosyncrasies, as well as the reasons for them.

Celebrities put a lot of effort into their public identities, which means they have a lot of eccentricities, both in terms of appearance and behavior. But there's sometimes a fascinating explanation for the characteristics they're best known for. Our readers looked into those explanations further. And, because that's our main peculiarity, we paid them cash for what they found.
