I think we can all agree that celebrities like to do weird things. Whether it’s out of boredom or just to impress the publicity, famous actors, actresses, singers, and sportsmen like to show off by buying extraordinary stuff, building bizarre homes, and owning peculiar pets. The latter seems to be a real trend now! So many celebrities are into owning exotic pets that it seems good old cats and dogs simply aren’t good enough for them. Here are 10 celebrities with truly weird pets.
Kristen Stewart – Wolf
Kristen Stewart has spent too much time among vampires and werewolves, otherwise why would she want to get a wolf as a pet? Well, actually it’s a hybrid, only half-wolf, but he surely looks the part. His name is Jack and according to Kristen he’s a real sweetie.
Slash – Pythons
Slash from Guns n’ Roses has been a devout reptile fan for most of his rocker career. And yet, most of the fans had no idea he liked them so much! Slash is one of those celebs who genuinely love their pets and do everything for their comfortable well-being. His collection of pythons has custom-made cages and enjoys a high quality of life.
Kirstie Alley – Lemurs
This 90s star has led an interesting life and somehow managed to fall in love with lemurs while she was starring in numerous movies. It’s kind of a mystery to us, but she has an impressive number of 14 lemurs at her care! She swears she loves each and every one of them from the bottom of her heart. She has two people taking care of her pets 24/7.
Tori Spelling – Bantam Chicken
Tori Spelling, the former Beverly Hills 90210 star, has a super fluffy bantam chicken as a pet. The two get along incredibly well and Tori is seen carrying her beloved Coco literally everywhere. She even makes cute clothes for the chicken to match her own outfits! Now that’s real love and dedication.
Martha Stewart – Peacocks
Martha Stewart is a bit of a crazy pet person – she has so many of them! Geese, chickens, dogs, canaries, and 13 peacocks are just the tip of the iceberg. She also has lotss horses, but birds are among her favourites. Naturally, peacocks are the highlight of her bird collection as they are exotic, gorgeous, and very loud. If you hear peacocks ‘sing’ at least once – you’ll never forget the sound!
Nicole Kidman – Alpacas
When you think about Nicole Kidman it’s hard to imagine what kind of pet this sophisticated woman would have at her house. A cat, a snake, or a garden of butterflies? Nope, Nicole Kidman is a proud owner of two cute alpacas. She’s very attached to them and, frankly, who wouldn’t be? These animals look like smaller versions of llamas.
Paris Hilton – Kinkajou
Kinkajou, also known as the ‘honey bear’ is a truly exotic wild animal from the rainforests of South America. This makes me wonder why anyone would have it as a pet in the first place, taking it away from its natural habitat. No wonder the critter bit Paris Hilton back in 2006.
Justin Bieber – Monkey
Justin Bieber is a notoriously awful pet-owner. For some unknown reason he purchased a Capuchin monkey illegally, which came out when German authorities took away the animal and checked its credentials. To top it all, the singer didn’t take any care of the monkey, so the poor animal was malnourished and needed special treatment when it was taken away.
Tom Felton – Chinchilla
One would think that Harry Potter’s Draco Malfoy would enjoy having something sleazy and hissing as a pet, but that’s definitely not the case with the actor Tom Felton. He enjoys having fluffy, friendly animals as pets, that’s why he’s a proud owner of chinchilla. The animal’s name is Stanley and Tom Felton has been his parent since 9 years old. They are best buddies!
David Beckham – Micro Pigs
Victoria Beckham presented two adorable little piggies to her husband and the couple named them after Elton John and his husband (eh, sweet?). Micro pigs are also called ‘teacup pigs’, but make no mistake – these adorable little piglets can grow up to 70 pounds!
