Celebs with OCD

Lots of people have little quirks — things that bother them or tasks they need to complete.  Some of those quirks are so serious that they can be considered a sign of OCD (Obsessive Compulsive Disorder.)  In Nancy Sinatra’s recent memoir, she talks about how Frank Sinatra took up to 12 showers a day.  Sounds a little OCD to me.  Now, TheFrisky.com has compiled a list of several Celebs with OCD. 

David Beckham
He spends hours straightening furniture and likes everything in straight lines or pairs.  Victoria Bekham says, “If you open our fridge, it’s all co-ordinated down either side… If there’s three cans of Diet Coke, he’d throw one away rather than having three, because it has to be an even number.” (Daily Mail)

Katy Perry
She just has a slight degree of OCD.  Mostly, I think she’s just easily annoyed, but here’s what she says bothers her: broken makeup in her purse and pet fur on her sweaters.  But her biggest pet peeve is, ”If I see a pair of sunglasses with fingerprints on them. Truly, I cannot stand it. I go ape. ‘Oh my God, I can’t breathe! Wipe them clean! Agghhh!’” (StarPulse)

Billy Bob Thornton
Billy Bob thinks that his compulsion may have ended his relationship with Angelina Jolie.  He is constantly doing math in his head and counting. (MSNBC)

Leonardo DiCaprio
Leo is obsessed with cracks in the pavement.  He actually developed this OCD tendency while he was researching his role as Howard Hughes in The Aviator.  To put himself in the mindset of an OCD sufferer, he revisted his childhood habit of avoiding cracks in the sidewalk.  In fact, during filming of the movie, he was often late to the set because he spent so much time re-tracing his steps to make sure he didn’t step on any cracks.

Charlize Theron
This Hollywood beauty obsesses about other people’s cabinets.  She says, “I have a problem with cabinets being messy and people just shoving things in and closing the door. I will lie in bed and not be able to sleep because I’ll say to myself: ‘I think I saw something in that cabinet that just shouldn’t be there.’” (ABC News)

Jennifer Love Hewitt
Jennifer has a cabinet obsession as well, but it’s not about what’s inside.  She says she can’t sleep if there are any cabinets doors or closet doors open in their house. (iVillage)

Jessica Alba
She’s a bit of a germaphobe and is horrified by the idea of someone else having slept in her bed.  That makes traveling and staying in hotel rooms a little difficult.  So she douses hotel beds in antibacterial spray. (ABC News)

Alec Baldwin
The 30 Rock actor is also obsessed with order.  He says, “I come home and I’m like, ‘Did somebody move that book?’ I just notice everything … I’ll have to catch a plane, like I’m in a hurry to go somewhere, and I’m in my kitchen rinsing out the glasses. I have a housekeeper who can do that and I’m sitting there cleaning the glass.” (iVillage)
