It's not all glitz and glamour in the lives of celebrities. Before they got their big breaks, a lot of them started off doing some pretty interesting activities that led them to fame. But now that they're famous, has everything about their lives changed? Off camera and behind the scenes, they really are just regular, weird human beings like the rest of us. Some are more open about their quirks and hilarious past lives, while with others you have to do a little bit more digging.
Liam Payne Is Afraid of SpoonsKoutaliaphobia: the fear of spoons. It's a real thing. The ex-One Direction member has been pretty open about his fear of spoon but has clarified that it's not so much a fear, just an opposition. In an interview with MTV, Liam said, "See I’m not so much scared of spoons, I’ll hold one...But I don’t like eating with them, if they’re not my spoons if that makes sense." It's okay Liam; you being afraid of spoons is what makes you beautiful.

Mr. Moseby's Dark PastThis one is a little unsettling. Phil Lewis, who played Mr. Moseby in The Suite Life of Zack and Cody was arrested in 1991 for manslaughter and driving under the influence. He was sentenced to only one year in prison. I don't know how I feel about trusting this guy to run a hotel.
Leonardo DiCaprio Could Have Been in Hocus PocusLeo was offered the role of Max in Hocus Pocus but turned it down. I don't think I'll ever be able to watch this movie the same way again picturing young Leo lighting that candle.

In his first national tournament, he took first place in three separate events. By the time he was eight years old, he had already earned his black belt. His karate skills have come in handy in many of his acting roles.
Jim Carrey Used To Wear Tap Shoes To BedAn entertainer from day one. Jim Carrey would wear tap dance shoes to bed just in case his parents needed to be cheered up in the middle of the night and sometimes his parents would ask him to perform for them. A true showman, indeed.
Morgan Freeman Is A Certified PilotIs there anything this man can't do? At the age of 65, Freeman got his private pilot's license. He owns three separate aircrafts. Before his acting days, he was enlisted in the United States Airforce. His was an Automatic Tracking Radar Repairman for four years.
Jack Black's Parents Are ScientistsNot just any scientists, but rocket scientists. The comedian and actors parents both worked as satellite engineers. Clearly Jack didn't follow in his parents footsteps because he was so obviously created for comedy, and for that, we are all thankful.
