Celebrities can often feel like they’re sitting on some lofty pedestal, watching us peasants from below. They seem otherworldly in their perfection. But some celebs are just straight up weird. And these relatable stars make us feel proud to let our freak flag fly. Here are the strangest celebs that we adore for their bizarre antics.
1. Miley Cyrus
People once hated her for Hannah Montana, then they hated her for twerking. But either way, she doesn’t care. She’s just doing Miley. From Disney starlet to pansexual tongue-wagging stoner, she’s every parent’s worst nightmare, but we love her for her weirdness!
2. James Franco
This guy has played some wacky roles, dresses in drag, and talks about himself in third person. He is both an actor, and a bizarre addition to the art world, creating a Kickstarter project that involved selling “invisible art” or 10k. Artist or insane? We’ll never know, but we’re fans regardless.
3. Joaquin Phoenix
This dude is still an enigma of facial hair and sunglasses, and we’re not really sure what’s up with him, but we’re into it. Remember that time that he faked/experienced a nervous breakdown on David Letterman? Was it real or fake? We still have no idea. He claimed it was for his mockumentary, but this guy has had a past of eccentric shenanigans, we wouldn’t be shocked if it went from mock to doc.
