7 Weird & Wacky Habits of Really Rich People

Are These Rich Folks Simply Nuts?

Fox News used to run a segment called normal or nuts, with Dr. Keith Ablow. In the segment the doctor gave his opinion of certain behaviors which many of us would consider outright wacky. It appears that being super successful does not preclude you from having bizarre, outlandish or outright crazy habits. Here is a listing of the craziest habits of highly successful people. A caveat is in order: you are about to enter the inner-circle of the super rich – the super crazy of our world!


Normal or Nuts #1

Simon Cowell is one of the most ruthless judges on American Idol, but being as rich as he is, he can pretty much afford to have whatever attitude he wants. He has some strange habits too. For example, he asserts that he climbs trees every day of his life – to feel like a child all over again. He was rated as one of the top 100 most influential people in the world by Time Magazine in 2010. If climbing trees is the way to ascend the rungs, perhaps there is method to Simon’s madness. You may not believe this, but Simon Cowell can pretty much climb as many trees as he likes, including Redwoods because his $550 million net worth gives him carte blanche to do so.


Normal or Nuts #2

Sandra Bullock is a Hollywood beauty, even if her star has faded somewhat over the years. But she has an interesting habit that she claims has kept her from ageing as quickly as her contemporaries. She uses haemorrhoid cream on her face. Before you gag, the cream is clean and it hasn’t been used in the nether reaches. In fact, many beauticians agree that the swelling reducing ability of haemorrhoid cream is a particularly useful remedy for wrinkles. If Sandra Bullock wants to use hemorrhoid cream for her face, that’s okay because she’s worth a cool $200 million – and that’s her green light to do what she wants.


Normal or Nuts #3

Angelina Jolie is probably one of the sexiest starlets in Hollywood. She was married to Brad Pitt, but that has nothing to do with her larger-than-life persona and her incredibly good looks. But one thing most people don’t know about Angelina Jolie is that she eats bugs, especially crickets. Many folks may find this utterly crazy given that she is so wealthy she could afford to eat pufferfish and caviar every day of her life. But she admits that her and her family are used to eating bugs, notably crickets and that they quite enjoy the taste. Once again, Angelina Jolie gets the last laugh because she has a net worth of $160 million, and together with former husband Brad Pitt their combined net worth was $400 million.


Normal or Nuts #4

Would you believe that Tiger Woods – the world-famous golfer who lost appeal over his womanizing has some of the craziest habits of all. Well perhaps it is more superstition or habit than it is crazy. It doesn’t matter what we think of Tiger Woods, because he’s laughing all the way to the bank with a net worth of $700 million. He always wears red shirts when he plays on Sundays.


Normal or Nuts #5

Successful poker players are among the wealthiest folks in the world, and Sammy Farha is no exception. This Lebanese poker player who was also a WSOP runner-up back in 2003 always has an unlit cigarette in his mouth while he’s playing poker. Funny thing is – the guy doesn’t smoke at all. Maybe he thinks it looks cool, maybe not – but his net worth is a cool $100 million.
