Not everyone only buys precisely what's needed. Celebrities have more leeway with indulging in retail pleasures, especially pricey guilty or unusual ones. Some get very creative with their wealth!
This eclectic actor is known for dancing to the beat of his own drum. Johnny Depp collects pigeon skeletons, in addition to insects and bats. Actually, these purchases seem to add to his dark allure. What does he do with these organic acquisitions? Only Tim Burton may know.
This actress, model, and singer once bought a dead horse. Not just a dead horse but "a three week old, well it was three weeks old when it died, [it's a] miniature horse... It's very well done. It's the best taxidermy in the world. Its name is Antoine." Why? Amanda dabbles in taxidermy apparently. This equine purchase was intended to decorate her LA home. She also owns a stuffed owl, butterflies, and Conan's gifted preserved raccoon.
This beloved 17 Grammy Awards winner indulges in gold Balenciaga leggings worth $100,000 each. Each leg of a single pair costs more than the average car.
Nicholas Cage owns the skull of a dinosaur: a terrifying Tarbosaurus. He reportedly outbid Leonardo DiCaprio by spending $276,000 to buy a 67 million year old dinosaur noggin.
The well-dressed Penelope Cruz not only cares about her clothes but also what they hang on. The stunning actress owns more than 500 different types of hangers with none of them being metal!
Actually, this one is rather endearing. Steve Carell bought a general store that was going out of business in Massachusetts. Why? As a child, he enjoyed visiting the store and even stops by every now and then to help stock the shelves.
This actress collects fine knives. Her mother bought Angelina her first knife when she was about 12 years old, the start of her collection. She has repeated her mother's move for her son Maddox.
Some celebrity purchases are obviously more out there than others; however, it seems that even practical purchases can be made excessive! Thankfully, most people wouldn't mind not having a fund specifically for preserved stuffed animals.
