Hollywood celebrities are interviewed constantly and we get to know quite a bit about them. Even things they might not want you to know that we report!
We’ve compiled a little list of interesting facts that you probably haven’t heard about your favorite stars. Check it out!
The first time most of us heard of “Sexiest Man Alive” Channing Tatum was when he starred in the dance flick “Step Up”. But, did you happen to know that he actually starred in Ricky Martin’s music video “She Bangs” in 2000.
Former “Gossip Girl” actress nearly nabbed the role of Bella Swan in the “Twilight” movies, which as we know went to Kristen Stewart. Tractenberg reveals, “There was definitely interest here and there because there’s only so few pale girls in Hollywood. I’ve known [director] Catherine Hardwicke since the movie “Thirteen.'”
But she doesn’t mind losing out because she has “already done the vampire thing.”
The athletic actor said he never was much one to “veg out”. McConaughey revealed, “Growing up I was not allowed to watch T.V if it was light out. That’s likely the reason why I had only seen two movies by the time I was 18”.
Pierce Brosnan, who is known for starring as James Bond, was actually a fire-eater and worked in the circus for years before he made it in the acting world.
Most of us have already heard that Katy Perry grew up singing gospel much in church before making it in mainstream music. But, did you happen to know that Perry was a back-up singer for the rock band P.O.D.?
Here she is with P.O.D. in the music video “Goodbye for Now.” You can see her better towards the end of the video.
We’ve all seen Sports Illustrated Swimsuit Model cover girl Kate Upton in revealing clothes and doing her crazy dances. Most of us don’t know that she was pretty well-off before her modeling career. Her great-grandfather was a co-founder of a little business named Whirlpool.
We all know actor Jack Nicholson from his cool role in “The Shining” saying “Heeere’s Johnny!”
Jack had a bit of a shocker as he grew up when he discovered that who he knew as his sister June was actually his mother. He was raised by his grandparents and didn’t find out the family secret until a Time magazine reporter dig a little digging in 1974.
Singer David Bowie has always had an interesting look to his eyes but a little known secret is that his left eye is permanently dilated. The injury happened when he was punched in the eye when he was a child.
Jennifer Lopez’s early career was as a Fly Girl in the comedy series “In Living Color.” But her first real break was as a back-up dancer for Janet Jackson!
You can see her here in Janet’s music video for “That’s the Way Love Goes”:
“Twilight” actress Ashley Greene is a stunner but she can also kick your ass!
Ashley revealed, “I started doing martial arts when I was really young and I ended up sparring boys instead of girls because I was that into it and I didn’t want to beat up the girls. It’s a fun thing and I’ve always been really athletic.”
Johnny Depp is a big Hollywood star these days but he played the role of “a pretty face” in a music video for Tom Petty’s “Into the Great Wide Open”.
Nicole Kidman suffers from a really strange phobia called lepidopterophobia. It sounds pretty gross but it’s actually the fear of butterflies.
Kidman admits, “It’s so bizzare. I’m not afraid of snakes or spiders. But I’m scared of butterflies.”
The “This is 40” actor is in the big leagues now but he used to work as a DJ for Bat Mitzvahs (which is a Bar Mitzvah for girls).
“Twilight” star Robert Pattinson is adored by his female fans but his two older sisters used to give him hell growing up!
Pattinon’s big sisters, Lizzie and Victoria, dressed him up as a girl as a child. Pattinson admits, “Up until I was 12 my sisters used to dress me up as a girl and introduce me as ‘Claudia’!”
Singer/actor Justin Timberlake, who recently wed actress Jessica Biel, is definitely a pretty boy. But did you know he used to make the pageant circuit as a child?
Timberlake won the 1991 pre-teen Mr. America Pageant. And he was the first male to win America’s Universal Charm Pageant in 1992!
Let’s see him in action:
