Celebrities and Their Favorite Foods
Everyone has that favorite food item they can never get enough of, or a snack they crave endlessly for days (no matter how healthy or unhealthy it may be). Celebrities — just like us — have these same, sometimes weird, favorites.
To prove our point, we've gathered a group of celebrities with interesting taste buds, who eat everything from peanut butter to bacon to crickets(?). Scroll down to see which foods these famous Hollywood heavyweights crave when they're stomachs start to growl.
The Hawaiian born singer, dancer and former X-Factor judge has a soft spot for her local cuisine. She once told Shape magazine, “to really satisfy my cravings, I turn to my roots. I was born in Hawaii, so I love dried tuna dipped in soy sauce, kalua pig, banana pancakes with coconut syrup, and chocolate-covered macadamia nuts. My gosh, I could gain 10 pounds just talking about these foods!”
Believe it or not, even Victoria's Secret models have a weakeness for fried food. Supermodel Miranda Kerr once said, "I do eat healthily and am careful with my diet, but not all the time," later naming fried chicken as one of her favorite meals. "That's my big weakness and there's nothing wrong with that … Everything in moderation, that's the trick."
Jerry Seinfeld was quoted in NYMag as saying, “I’ve been a peanut-butter nut since I was a kid." Perhaps that's why the comedian was fortunate enough get a sandwich named after him at Peanut Butter & Co, a New York City peanut-butter sandwich shop. Their “Jerry Seinfeld’s ‘Comedy Special’” is made with a sliced bagel, peanut butter, drizzled honey and cinnamon.
Angelina Jolie and the Jolie-Pitt children
Jolie has been known to fancy bizarre foods, and it seems like her tastes have rubbed off on the Jolie-Pitt children as well. "My boys love to eat crickets. It's their favorite thing," the mother of six told E! News. "They ate them like Doritos," she added. The actress even admits to trying the tasty critters for herself, saying, “they’re good — they are a lot like a potato chip.”
White told People about her not-so-healthy eating habits, but they seem to be working just fine for the 90 year old actress. She acknowledged that she should make better choices, "But hot dogs and Red Vines and potato chips and french fries are my favorite foods," she says.
We're not sure if it's her favorite dish of all time, but Vogue magazine featured Kristen Stewart’s favorite tortilla soup recipe in a 2011 issue. The "Twilight" star's cooking has received much praise from her "On The Road" co-stars.
Sports Illustrated swimsuit model Chrissy Teigen loves her bacon. Her blog showcases her favorite recipes (like this bacon deviled egg) and its tagline even states “personal random ramblings from a girl who loves bacon and can’t be fat."
To promote her new album “Red,” Taylor Swift stopped by "Good Morning America" where George Stephanopoulos asked what her go-to comfort food is. “Cinnamon Toast Crunch cereal or Pop-Tarts,” said Swift. It might not be a well-balanced breakfast, but it's sure to satisfy her sweet tooth.
