21 Little-Known Facts about Your Favorite Celebrities ...

I don't know about you, but I like reading unusual facts about celebrities. There's just something about seeing that your favorite singer has the same phobia you do or that your favorite actor has a similar past that makes them seem more relatable, a little less “distant”. Personally, I love the stories about the “softer sides” we normally wouldn't see. Given all the negativity in the world around us, it's nice to read something positive for a change. I had a really hard time picking the best ones, but here are a few of my favorite facts about celebrities. You've probably heard some of them before, but I still think they're interesting. Since I got most of them from multiple celebrity and magazine websites, I'm assuming they're true. If not, feel free to correct me in the comments.

1. Octo-dad?

(Your reaction) Thank you!

This is one of the strangest (and yet least surprising) facts about celebrities I found. Buzzfeed.com says that Nicholas Cage once bought a pet octopus because he thought it would help him with acting. I haven't seen many of his movies lately so I don't know how effective it's been. I'll let you be the judge.
