14 of the most unlikely hobbies loved by celebs


SO, JIM CARREY’S a really good painter.

No, seriously. Like, really good.

Having unveiled his artwork in 2011, in the self-titled painting gallery ‘Jim Carrey: Nothing to See Here’, he’s bringing his artistry to the forefront, with a new documentary.

‘Jim Carrey: I Needed Colour’ gives people the opportunity to see where Carrey has been hiding these last few years: his art studio.

He’s not the only famous face with an entirely unrelated past-time, mind. Weird to think that celebs are just like us, huh?

3. Cameron Diaz plays … Golf

Not so much a weird hobby, but her description of it certainly isn’t of the norm, shall we say.

I’ve been golfing for about eight years but I hadn’t golfed for, like, three years until recently … because it’s kind of like crack cocaine to me.”

Ok then.

4. Angelina Jolie collects … Daggers

Not the most surprising one on the list tbh.

My mom took me to buy my first daggers when I was 11 or 12. And I’ve already bought Maddox some things. We take him to a special shop.”

As a child, I was fascinated with spiders’ webs sparkling with morning dew, or just after the rain.”
