We all know that one kid with a weird-ass hobby that makes you genuinely wonder if you even want him as a friend in the first place. Normal people do stuff like read books, go see movies,… And then there’s that one guy that rubs butter all over his naked body and runs across the street yelling “I’m a pancake! I’m a pancake!”
Our society has bred a safe haven for people like Pancake Peter and these people have found a new outlet on the Internet. You can pretty much Google whatever weird hobby you have and find a forum where you can meet up with “Dress Like A Baby” Dave, “Talks To Walls” Walter and have a wonderful time doing your butter-rubbing, baby-dressing, wall-talking thing. It’s how we’ve evolved as a society and how we’ve increased our tolerance for diverse mindsets.
Luckily, there’s famous people out there that have some pretty odd hobbies as well. It truly shows that having unusual pastimes is no longer an obstacle for success. While these aren’t quite as odd as the ones I mentioned above, you might be surprised to find out what it is these famous people do when they aren’t going around being famous and stuff.
10. Tom Hanks
Tom Hanks collects vintage typewriters and keeps them in working condition. He tries to bring some along whenever he’s on the road, because you never know when you might need a working vintage typewriter around. I know I’ve missed having one or two on occasion. Tom even designed a typewriter app. Don’t ask.
9. Daniel Craig
James Bond is apparently so much into the video game franchise Halo that it actually was a point of disagreement between him and his ex-girlfriend. That’s right – ol’ Daniel took his Maslow triangle and put “Halo” all the way down, next to food and apparently even before sex.
