From Johnny Depp's Barbie collection to Paris Hilton's frog hunt, celebrities have bizarre hobbies that one can never imagine

Former Oasis member Liam Gallagher has been unveiled as the most unlikely guest at the Chelsea Flower Show in its history.

The former Oasis front-man showed his love for gardening by asking for tickets to a VIP preview day of the show, a newspaper reported.

Paris Hilton is a staunch critic of animal hunting – except if it’s done to catch frogs.

The reality TV star chases the amphibians but claims she is more humane than other hunters because she releases them back into the wild.

Meanwhile, Johnny Depp has a collection of limited edition Barbies, including dolls based on Beyonce and Destiny’s Child, the High School Musical cast and even a Lindsay Lohan figure with an ankle tag.

The actor also likes playing with the dolls, previously admitting: “I’ve played with a lot of Barbies and Kens for my kids. It’s actually one of the things I’m good at.”

Cristiano Ronaldo has revealed an unlikely addiction to bingo.

The striker was given a DVD version of the game a few years ago and said it helped him improve his English.

You wouldn’t think a supermodel like Claudia Schiffer was into creepy crawlies – but the stunning catwalk legend collects them for her home.

She mounts them to be hung on the walls – and even the logo of her knitwear line is a doodle of a spider.

Tom Hanks is into collecting old typewriters – and isn’t above being bribed to get his hands on one.

The movie star has revealed that he has almost 200 old portable manual typewriters.

Former boxing champ Mike Tyson has an unexpected tender side – caring for pigeons.

The heavyweight who famously bit a chunk out of Evander Holyfield’s ear during a fight got into keeping the birds after he retired from the ring.

When he’s not reaching for new stars, Simon Cowell likes to hang out in trees.

Apparently he likes to climb up trees every day, saying that it’s like a ritual.

He also loves cartoons, like The Flintstones, The Jetsons, all the old ones.

He said that he watches them in the morning to put him in a good mood.

Apart from turning teenage hearts into jelly, Justin Bieber is also a genius with a Rubik’s cube.

The 19-year-old heart-throb can solve the ‘80s favourite in one minute and 23 seconds, though the Guinness World Record holder can do it in just 5.55 seconds.

Pop superstar Taylor Swift is known as a nifty guitar player but she’s also handy at making snow globes.

The singer once shared a photo of her hobby, creating homemade Christmas snow globes.

‘Twilight’ star Kristen Stewart is a juggler during her free time and has shown off her talent on a US TV show.
