20 Secrets These Famous Celebrities Would Prefer You DIDN’T Know.
Beyond their recent relationships and how they look in swimwear, the one thing that most people want to know about celebrities are their secrets: What are the details of their sordid pasts? Who were they before they came the stars that we know today?
Luckily, the Internet makes it spectacularly easy to find out. Here, we've compiled 20 of the most unusual and shocking facts about some of the most unexpected celebrities and historical figures - the one about John Adams is just ridiculous.
#1. Elvis had a preoccupation with girls that were way too young for him.
"He was fascinated with the idea of real young teenage girls,' said Lamar Fike, a former member of Elvis's crew. 'It scared the hell out of all of us.'"
In fact, Elvis's future wife Priscilla was merely 14 when they met. Perhaps due to the times, their their love story was portrayed as something poetic - love across a wide age gap - rather than as something disturbing.
#2. Alice Cooper is actually a devout born again Christian.
Cooper regularly participates in missionary projects, and leads his own Bible study classes. Because of his high-profile status as a rocker, he has stayed mostly quiet about his religious beliefs.
#3. Alfred Hitchcock was afraid of eggs.
In fact, Hitchcock may have had a touch of alektorophobia, which is a fear of chickens, roosters, and eggs. In one interview, Hitchcock claimed "I’m frightened of eggs, worse than frightened; they revolt me. That white round thing without any holes and when you break it, inside there’s that yellow thing, round, without any holes… Brrr! have you ever seen anything more revolting than an egg yolk breaking and spilling its yellow liquid?”
