You’re not really a celebrity unless you’ve got a super dubious hippie-dippy side hustle. We’re talking stuff like fad diet, “nutritional” supplements, holy water enemas, a 48 -DVD series on the healing magical of pennies, an ensorcelled amulet that scares the evil poltergeist out of your colon when you eat too many legumes, etc. Yes, famous people will certainly bend over backwards to shill dumb crap. But what’s surprising is how many of them drink their own snake oil. Here are some celebrities who believe in crackpottery so stupid that their health tips-off would cause an Ojai crystal healer to choke on their karma-free granola.
6 Steve Jobs Rinsed His Feet In Toilet water( And Generally Stank Up The Joint )
If you thought the memory of Apple founder Steve Jobs couldn’t be any more soiled by the fact that he _e2dad11d_ treated everyone he _c2dc9a29_ like _afd955a9_, then you’re probably right. But get this: The dude was so gross that one of his cleaner habits was rinsing his gnarly feet in the toilet.
If you considered the( non-Ashton-Kutcher) biopic wherein Michael Fassbender-as-Jobs prepares for a presentation by doing said ablutions in the crapper, “youre supposed to” assumed that was a bit of Hollywood hyperbole. But nope, it was simply _dd44fee7_. Blend this with his worrying repugnance at wearing shoes, though, and we’re guessing this habit wasn’t very relaxing for Apple’s janitors.
Oh, but that was but the start of his hygienically questionable “eccentricity.” Early in his career, Jobs’ co-workers were so disgusted at his perpetual stank that the managers transferred him to the night shift. It wasn’t that he was afflicted by a condition that caused uncontrollable farting( though _dc90c066_ may have given rise to that issue as well ), but rather that the man literally didn’t bathe.
It wasn’t a passive-aggressive thing either, as Jobs is said to have truly believed that if he _07266381_, it would somehow leave his body “_9f1b9a4d_, ” thereby eliminating any need to march his grimy ass into a rain. So if you think the “fruitarian” lifestyle will construct you reek like a delicious smoothie as opposed to a rank bus station hobo, people who had the calamity of spending lengthy periods in Jobs’ presence will readily confirm that you are “_f9f8913d_.”
5 Shailene Woodley Worships The Sun With Her Hoo-Hah
Shailene Woodley’s model good looks, acting resume, and sunny disposition have attained her a favorite of moviegoers the world over, discounting mothers forced to sit through Divergent . Who knows how many more fans she’d have if everyone knew precisely how sunny she lets her disposition get. In her own terms, she likes to “give[ her] vagina a little vitamin D.”( She’s talking about sunshine, chuckleheads .) Woodley says she was reading analyzes about “yeast infections and other genital issues, ” as one does, when she found out about the energy-refilling benefits of “spreading your legs” and getting some solar where the sunshine don’t shine.Fox Searchlight
Please remember to set some sunscreen down there, though, or any of the benefits will be cancelled out .
Another example of how Woodley may be confusing “free-spirited” with “deranged train yard hobo” can be seen in her dislike for hygiene. According to her, because she was cursed with “horse hair, ” it only works out better if she only shampoos her hair once a month and “the oilier, the better.” Not for the person or persons standing behind you in the subway , no.
Style mavens and other loons have described her as “super down-to-earth, ” which is evidenced by her claim that she makes her own toothpaste out of clay — which she also feeds on its own, on the advice of a taxi driver. She also makes her own cheese and “whips up most of her eco-beauty products, ” as well as her own medicines. Yes, she claims she “[ doesn’t] get those from doctors, ” preferring to select the finest wild plants crapped out by the ground in her area.
4 Simon Cowell Enjoys Sheep Placenta Facials, Explosion His Face With Oxygen, And Gets Wrapped Up Like A Taco
Noted competition show judge Simon Cowell obviously possesses an inner ugliness so profound that it requires diligent exterior maintenance. To avoid his skull from imploding into an abyss of endless darkness, Cowell must rely on cutting-edge pseudoscience to maintained his grizzled mug sullen and tight.
Cowell’s past “experiments” have included such easily-confused-with-fraternity-hazing rituals as sheep placenta facials or being locked up for 90 minutes in detoxifying machines that look like Doctor Who set pieces. He’s also in the habit of taking regular blasts from a $500 aerosol can filled with pure oxygen to “rejuvenate his scalp and reduce stress” — although having to constantly worry about avoiding anyone with a lighted cigarette so your silk jacket doesn’t light up like a suicide vest seems like it might have the opposite effect.And then there’s one technique that sounds like a scene from a Roger-Corman-produced Fifty Shades Of Grey ripoff, so we’ll let Cowell himself describe it 😛 TAGEND
That kind of behavior is perfectly acceptable between consenting adults, but we don’t ordinarily sugarcoat our hardcore S& M fetishes by referring to them as “detoxing.” At least Cowell is upfront about his raging vanity, and acknowledges to have “not obsessively” partaken in his fair share of Botox, which he considers “no more unusual than toothpaste.” You know you’re a little bit screwy when rampant goofball Howie Mandel calls you out for being a weirdo.
3 Alicia Silverstone Feeds Her Son Like A Mama Vulture Ever watched a bird regurgitate a glob of mashed-up worms straight into the gaping maws of its ravenous brood? It’s pretty gross, to say the least, and certainly not something the majority of members of us would ever consider emulating with our own kids, or even our parrots. Unless, of course, you’re the actress who was America’s sweetheart during the course of its brief period between Clueless and Batman& Robin , Alicia Silverstone. She’s apparently style into the upchuck school of child rearin’, and we regret to inform you that we have the photos to prove it 😛 TAGEND Alicia Silverstone
In A Clueless Christmas Carol , this is Cher’s horrible fate as prophesied by the Ghost of As-If Future .
The official word for expelling chewed-up morsels into the mouth of one’s infant is “premastication.” It’s also a traditional method of weaning in some African countries, where it’s been shown to provide the exceptional benefit of transmitting deadly cancers. Shockingly, the National Institute of Health isn’t such a fan, and been shown that the public at large be warned about its threats. But hey, it’s all worth it for the bonding, right?
As for Silverstone’s kid, she has claimed that he’s “never had a drop of medication.” She doesn’t seem too worried about that, however. Besides, who among us could be so heartless as to deny them these special moments together when “he attacks my mouth and I think it’s adorable“?Alicia Silverstone
Thank you for ruining the one part of Aerosmith videos that didn’t seem weirdly incestuous .
2 Peter Thiel Is “Interested” In Injecting Himself With Blood To Become Immortal For centuries, there have been narratives of devils who stroll among us, their dark passions satisfied merely through the savage bloodletting of the young and innocent. If you think that such ogres no longer exist, then gaze upon one such rogue who still seeks dark pleasure in stealing away our very life’s essence 😛 TAGEND
Or that’s the plan, anyway. Peter Thiel, the billionaire businessman and co-founder of PayPal, admits that he has an “obsession with warding off demise, ” which seems reasonable for someone with more money than the GDP of Greenland. His dreaded of the reaper has led him to “look into” an activity that many of us would never consider on the grounds that it was too ghoulish: regular transfusions of blood taken from the( hopefully willing) bodies of young people.
“Parabiosis, ” the technological term for the medical inhumanity mentioned above, seems to be making a comeback after having fallen out of vogue due to disputes involving animal cruelty. Oh, right: Not only does this field of study involve blood transfusions, but also the practice of sewing two animals together to share a circulatory system. Such petroleum techniques have not yet been performed on humans, so there’s as yet no reason to believe Thiel might be keeping a captive stable of supple teens on hand, should the need to surgically merge with one arise.
It turns out Thiel isn’t a complete maniac, as some studies suggest that parabiosis actually works — on rodents, but still. Also, you don’t have to be an internet Midas to get your hands on sweet, sweet youngster blood. A company called Ambrosia LLC in Monterey, CA is looking for volunteers to do a little plasma pimping right here in the U.S ., and clinical trials are underway in China and Korea. Some Silicon Valley weirdo are already rumored to spend thousands of dollars a year desecrating the veins of nubile youths, which bodes well for a balmy future was governed by cyber-Draculas.
1 Gwyneth Paltrow Ritualistically Burns Her Underwear, Steams Her Nethers
At this point, Gwyneth Paltrow isn’t so much a movie actress as some reclusive faith healer who emerges occasionally to espouse the virtues of secreting an $88 jade egg up your vagina( and to sometimes make out with Iron Man ).
You can read about the entire ritual here. The easily nauseated should be forewarned, however, that it contains the phrase “recycling into the ethers.”
So now that you’ve emptied your drawers and your life of any offending panty-related melancholy( and also likewise disposed of all cancer-causing bras ), it’s period for the next treatment: mugwort vaginal steaming. It might sound like the nastiest sort of Harry Potter fan fiction, but it’s an ancient Asian therapy that we’ve covered in more depth here.
Needless to say, just because something is ancient and Asian doesn’t mean it isn’t based on voluminous heaps of nonsense. Gynecologists alert that the risk/ reward ratio leans heavily toward “Don’t do that shit, ” but what the hell do they know? According to Paltrow, “The first time I tried v-steaming, I was like, ‘This is insane’. My friend Ben brought me and I was like, ‘You are out of your f ** king intellect. What is this? But then by the end of it I was like, ‘This is so great.'” Well, we guess if it’s good enough for a altogether random stranger named Ben, it’s good enough for you.E.
