16 Times Celebs Have Done Something Gross With Their Food

Celebrities always seem to be doing something weird and completely out of the norm, all while acting like it’s no big deal at all. It’s hard to say what goes on in their mind all the time — maybe all of that fame and fortune makes them feel like they can get away with doing whatever they want? Whatever the case, we all can’t help but follow along as they reveal all of their strangest habits.

One of the things we all love hearing about stars is how they eat. We can’t get enough of hearing about what they snack on, what they enjoy eating when they go out to a restaurant, what their biggest splurges are, and how they handle the wackiest of all diets. And we really love hearing about the gross things they’ve done with food, even if it is kind of disgusting. Here are some examples of times celebrities have done something seriously gross with their food:

1. Chrissy Teigen licks the seasoning off chips and then puts them back in the bag

You definitely don’t want to share a snack with this model.

A few years ago, Chrissy Teigen did an interview with Delish about her daily eating habits. In typical Teigen fashion, she had to make a few jokes — and we hope this was one of them! Teigen said she loved Doritos, adding,

“I lick off the nacho cheese seasoning and put the chips back in the bag. You still get all the flavor, not all the carbs!”

While some people laughed it off, others felt it was making light of disordered eating. She later had to defend herself by saying she was only kidding and wasn’t trying to promote eating disorders.

2. Hillary Clinton eats jalapenos like they’re chips

This is going to be way too spicy for most people.

According to one former aide, Hillary Clinton is basically obsessed with spicy foods. The aide said, “During 2008, there was not a day or a minute that went by that we didn’t have a full plate of raw jalapenos. She ate them like potato chips.” Now that one definitely sounds painful!

3. Channing Tatum puts Cheetos on his PB&J

A classic peanut butter and jelly sandwich really doesn’t need anything else… but apparently Channing Tatum adds something anyway.

Tatum did a Reddit AMA where he answered a bunch of fan questions. One asked him what his perfect sandwich was, and he explained, “Bread, white. Peanut butter, not crunchy, creamy. Grape jelly, double portion, more than you think should actually fit on a piece of white bread. Bread. And then some Cheetos shoved in there, and then you’re good to go.”

It all sounded so perfect up until the Cheetos!

What a combination!

4. Jennifer Lawrence invented a chili pizza sandwich

And yes, it’s as disgusting as it sounds.

In a 2016 interview with Glamour, Jennifer Lawrence revealed her “greatest food invention,” and it doesn’t sound so great to us. She explained, “It’s called a chili pizza sandwich. You have a piece of pizza, you put chili in it with noodles, like southern chili with noodles, and then another piece of pizza, and then you eat it like a sandwich.” Taste-testers online confirmed that it was just as awful as it seems like it would be.

5. Kourtney Kardashian peels the chocolate off of her peanut butter cups.

One of the best things about peanut butter cups is, obviously, the chocolate.

And what’s better than that perfect mix of chocolate and peanut butter together? Apparently, Kourtney Kardashian isn’t a huge fan of that mix. In a video on her old app, Kardashian shows how she eats a peanut butter cup:

She eats the chocolate around the sides without touching the peanut butter, then peels the chocolate off the top and bottom of the cup, and then eats just the peanut butter.

It’s too much work!

6. Selena Gomez puts pickle juice on her popcorn

Pickles are delicious, but would you mix them with popcorn?

We can probably all agree that we love pickles, but Selena Gomez takes it to a new level. In an older interview on Late Night with Jimmy Fallon, Gomez explained one of her favorite snacks, which she called Texas-style popcorn.

What is Texas-style popcorn, you ask?

She mixes a bag of unsalted popcorn with salt and Tobasco, then drizzles on some pickle juice. Uh… not exactly something we’d love to try.

7. Shailene Woodley has eaten clay

…And no, we’re not exaggerating.

The Big Little Lies star is known for doing some pretty unconventional things, but one that took the cake was when she admitted she had eaten clay before. In a post for Into The Gloss, Shailene Woodley said, “clay is one of the best things you can put in your body.”

She explained she heard about eating clay from an African clay driver who told her that women ate clay when they were pregnant where he was from.

She said, “So, I’ve discovered that clay is great for you because your body doesn’t absorb it, and it apparently provides a negative charge, so it bonds to negative isotopes. And, this is crazy: it also helps clean heavy metals out of your body.” Definitely something to talk to a doctor about before you try it!

8. Jessica Alba puts salt in her water

Salt water is supposed to be bad for you, right?

Well, not so much, according to Jessica Alba. The star told Delish a few years ago that she adds pink Himalayan salt to her water. She explained, “I actually have low blood sugar and low blood pressure, and I get very woozy if I don’t have enough salt.

When I do hot yoga, water isn’t enough.

I need to have salty water or I’ll have coconut water.” That sounds pretty awful.

9. Scott Foley puts peanut butter in his eggs

It’s hard to find something that doesn’t go well with eggs… except it seems like Scott Foley did.

Foley practically broke the internet when he posted a video in 2017 where he was spreading peanut butter on his scrambled eggs. And on his kid’s scrambled eggs! After fans freaked out, Foley posted again, saying, “You guys are insane — insane. It’s so good. Don’t knock it till you try it. Thanks! Peanut butter eggs. Dig it.”

10. Liam Hemsworth ate 45 White Castle burgers at once

Okay, this one night make you nauseous.

In one interview with Jimmy Kimmel, Liam Hemsworth admitted that one night he ate 45 White Castle burgers and then vomited them all back up (because of course he did!).

The only positive to this disgusting story?

White Castle offered to donate $20,000 to a charity of his choice because they were so impressed. Yikes? Or yay? It’s hard to say.

11. Tim Tebow puts butter in his coffee

Adding creamer and sugar to your coffee is delicious… but butter?

The football star told Delish that he mixes half-regular, half-decaf coffee with “a tap of heavy organic whipping cream,” a little bit of butter, some unsweetened almond milk, and a few drops of liquid Stevia, English Toffee flavor.

That sounds… beyond awful.

He insists it is “a little bit like a milkshake” and says “it really kickstarts your day. It’s fantastic.” We’ll take his word for it.

12. Halle Berry has drank straight pepperoncini juice

How spicy do you think that has to be?!

It’s basically a given that pregnant women can experience some really weird cravings, but some are definitely more disgusting than others. In an interview with The Insider’s Lara Spencer, Berry revealed that when she was pregnant, she craved really salty foods, especially pepperoncinis. She added,

“I just eat them out of the jar and drink the juice!”

The juice?! Sounds kind of horrifying.

13. Lucy Hale ate grasshopper tacos.

For some cultures, grasshoppers and bugs are a delicacy.

Still, if you’re not used to it, eating those things can sound pretty horrifying. During an appearance on Live! With Kelly and Michael, Hale tried two unconventional foods:

Grasshopper tacos and chocolate-covered larvae.

She ended up saying about the tacos, “I actually enjoyed these.” Can’t relate!

14. Ariana Grande once publicly licked a donut

Who could forget Donutgate?

Back in 2015, Ariana Grande caused a stir when she was caught on video licking a donut in a public shop. The video, shared on TMZ, showed Grande appearing to reach out and touch her tongue to a donut. She then jumped up and down laughing. When an employee arrived with a full tray of donuts, Grande said,

“What the f*** is that? I hate Americans. I hate America.”

She later apologized for it, but that doesn’t change the fact that it was both incredibly odd, and very gross.

15. Catherine Zeta Jones cleans her teeth with strawberries

Strawberries are delicious! But as toothpaste? No thanks.

Catherine Zeta Jones doesn’t seem to agree. She once said that in order to whiten her teeth naturally, she purees 1-3 strawberries, and then mixes them with a half tablespoon of baking soda. She brushes her teeth with that mix, then follows up with regular toothpaste. It almost sounds painful?

16. Giada De Laurentiis eats brown rice as breakfast

Brown rice itself is not gross. But brown rice during breakfast?

It just seems odd! Celebrity chef Giada De Laurentiis doesn’t think so, though. In an interview with Delish, she explained one of her go-to breakfast options: “A 1/4 cup of brown rice in the morning, with some olive oil. I do put a lot of olive oil in it, I’ll be honest.

Not equal parts, but almost three tablespoons of olive oil to a 1/4 cup of brown rice.

I hate to say this, but I like it swimming in olive oil.” We’re not sure what is worse: all the olive oil, or the fact that she’s eating it in the morning.

Did you like it?
