You may think that celebrities like Mila Kunis and Taylor Swift spend all of their time either working endlessly at their demanding careers or perhaps living lavishly in their millionaire-dollar mansions. But that’s not always the case. A lot of super famous people enjoy the same recreational fun and simple pastimes as us normal folks. Others, like Kate Moss and Justin Bieber not to mention Angelina Jolie, enjoy hobbies fitting of their status and personalities, i.e. extravagant and outrageous. Check out these 12 stars with unusual hobbies.

12. Kate Moss – Unusual Hobby: Synchronized Swimming (In Thailand…With Other Stars)

Kate Moss may be well-known as a supermodel on the runway and in endless print campaigns, but maybe not so much for being a star in the water. However, she and fellow top model Naomi Campbell as well as musician Jamie Hince all indulge in swimming…synchronized swimming. The group apparently travelled to Phuket, Thailand for a week’s worth of synchronized swimming training. “The only blip in the evening was when a rather tipsy Kate tried to jump back in the pool at midnight for an impromptu solo performance. Boyfriend Jamie Hince had to physically hold her back.”

11. David Arquette – Unusual Hobby: Knitting

Perhaps not a totally unusual hobby – at least for old grandmas or new-wave craft enthusiasts – but kind of unexpected from someone like David Arquette, knitting is apparently something he loves to do. Do you think he prefers to knit sweaters, scarves, or something bigger like a full-on cozy blanket?

10. Claudia Schiffer – Unusual Hobby: Collecting Insects

Claudia Schiffer is known for beauty and style, not for gross things like bugs. But the supermodel is in fact an insect enthusiast and apparently has quite the collection of deceased creepy crawlies. And that’s not the only way her love of the tiny critters is exhibited. She also is said to love paintings of insects. To each their own or whatever. But still, ew.

9. Angelina Jolie – Unusual Hobby: Collecting Daggers

Angelina Jolie has an unusual hobby that is perfectly Angelina Jolie. She has a dagger collection. Of course she does, amirite?! And it’s nothing new for the mega-star. “My mom took me to buy my first daggers when I was 11 or 12.” And you don’t have to worry about where they’ll be going when she’s done with them. It’s a hobby she’s passing on. “I’ve already bought Maddox some things. We take him to a special shop.” Honestly, the only unusual thing here might be how sort of normal it is. You couldn’t be blamed for thinking she collected something far, far weirder. And, who knows? Maybe she does.

8. Jerry Seinfeld – Unusual Hobby: Collecting Porsches

It takes a heck of a lot of money to support a hobby like Jerry Seinfeld’s so it’s a good things he’s super (like super-duper) rich. Collecting stamps or antiques isn’t good enough for this celebrity. Jerry Seinfeld collects cars. And not just any cars. He collects Porsches. That’s right, Porches. He likes to keep a steady stable of about, 20 but has been known to go above that mark when the fancy strikes.

7. Eva Longoria – Unusual Hobby: Brazilian Waxing

Some might consider getting your bits waxed as necessary maintenance, but for actress Eve Longoria it’s more than just grooming, it’s a hobby. Apparently she likes to spend her free time making sure she’s in tip-top shape down there and getting a full Brazilian is her crotch style of choice.

6. Quentin Tarantino – Unusual Hobby: Collecting TV Board Games

Quentin Tarantino is another celebrity who likes to spend his time and money on collecting things. But his interest doesn’t lie in daggers or bugs or even expensive cars. Its retro television board games that piques his interest, like his prized version of the “I Dream of Jeannie” board game. Just try to imagine Tarantino twitching his nose to conjure up a win.

5. Simon Cowell – Unusual Hobby (Or Hobbies): Climbing Trees and Watching Cartoons

Simon Cowell may have built his reputation on the fact that he’s hard-nosed and mostly super serious. But when he’s not working in front of the cameras or behind the scenes he likes to revert to more childlike pleasures. “I climb trees daily. It’s like a ritual,” he told GQ magazine. And something else that is also ritual-like with Simon is his morning cartoons. “I like cartoons every morning. I like ‘The Flintstones,’ ‘The Jetsons,’ all the old ones. I watch them in the morning to put me in a good mood.” Good mood?! Maybe he should watch them throughout the day to keep the good vibes going.

4. Colin Farrell – Unusual Hobby: Line Dancing

Colin Farrell has made his mark as one of the current hunky hotties in Hollywood with his dark good looks and yummy Irish accent, but did you know he also dances? Colin Farrell spends his spare time line dancing so feel free to imagine him moving his grooooove thang on the dance floor – in line, of course. If you doubt his skills, he was even once a line dance instructor, so he obviously has some smooth moves.

3. Justin Bieber – Unusual Hobby: Solving Rubik’s Cubes (In Under 2 Minutes!)

Love him or hate him, praise him or pan him, Justin Bieber has more skills that you know. When he’s not on stage and has a few minutes to spare, he can fill them with his Rubik’s cube hobby. In fact, he only needs a couple of minutes since he apparently can solve the maddening puzzle in under two minutes. Now THAT’S talent!

2. Mila Kunis – Unusual Hobby: Playing World of Warcraft

You figure Mila Kunis would spend her free time being hot and gorgeous and super cool – which we can be sure she does – but you wouldn’t assume she also spends her timing as a gamer, but yup, she does. She’s an extreme fan of videogames, specifically World of Warcraft. She claims to be such an avid gamer that she has to monitor herself and be careful with how much time she plays and even has to restrict herself when necessary.

1. Taylor Swift – Unusual Hobby: Making Snow Globes

Taylor Swift may try to shake up her image every once in a while, but mostly upholds her super sweet, wholesome image and one of her hobbies is perfectly suited to the supremely saccharine singer. When the holidays roll around and she takes a break from the stage and spotlight, Taylor and friends gather to make homemade snow globes. A-dor-a-ble!
