It turns out that underneath the designer clothes and glamor, sometimes celebrities just want to indulge in something they shouldn’t. Something greasy, or sweet, or just filled with carbs. The good stuff.
From models to actresses and even royalty, these 12 celebrities reveal their surprising favorite go-to guilty pleasures, proving the importance of everything in moderation and not cutting out every favorite food forever when dieting.
12. Cameron Diaz: Garlic
It may be simple, but when asked what her favorite foods were she responded, “Anything with garlic, oil and lemon flavors. Simple Italian/Mediterranean flavors.”
11. Taylor Swift: Cinnamon Toast Crunch
A bowl of cereal is the best for breakfast or a snack and it looks like Taylor Swift agrees! It seems like the pop star has a true love addiction with breakfast foods in general, naming Cinnamon Toast Crunch and Pop-Tarts as her favorite foods.
Breakfast is the most important meal of the day, after all.
10. Scarlett Johansson: Buffalo Wings
When asked about her favorite foods the actress gushed, “Oh my God, [I am obsessed] with buffalo chicken wings. I am addicted to them.”
We kind of can’t blame her.
9. Kim Kardashian: Cookies and Cream Ice Cream
There is not much out there that is better than a cold scoop of ice cream, and even Kim Kardashian agrees. Despite a strict diet and workout schedule, the reality star reveals she loves herself some cookies and cream ice cream – guilt free!
“Sometimes I pig out and I still feel great, and think ‘That was so worth it!’ That’s how I feel a lot of the time. I think, ‘See this little dimple of cellulite here? It was so worth it for that cookies & cream ice cream!’”
8. Angelina Jolie: McDonalds
Even celebrities can find themselves on the run and in need of hitting up a drive-thru for dinner sometimes. Actress and mom of six Angelina Jolie admits she is guilty of being a fast food fan occasionally, with her favorite being McDonald’s.
Being Jolie and her children are known world travelers, it is comforting that no matter where they are they can always get their favorite.
7. Aaron Paul: Pizza
He even went as far as planning a pizza date with friend Justin Timberlake back in 2014.
6. Kate Middleton: Sticky Toffee Pudding
Served as a delicious sponge cake topped with dates and toffee sauce, we can understand why it would be hard for Kate to turn it down.
5. Hugh Jackman: Wine and Cheese
Want to eat like Wolverine? Simply grab your favorite Merlot paired with a few blocks of cheese and you’re in! Jackman, a self-described “foodie,” loves nothing more than a good wine with some delicious cheese.
“I’m a real foodie and into good wine. Good cheese with wine—it doesn’t get better than that.”
4. Katy Perry: Mushrooms
“I love mushrooms. I could eat a ton of them. I really love truffles but I hardly ever get them. Mushrooms in general though are so healthy and good for you. I can’t get enough.”
A favorite treat that is generous to the waistband.
3. Jerry Seinfeld: Peanut Butter
Located in the West Village in NYC, Peanut Butter & Co. features a “Jerry Seinfeld Comedy Special,” which is a sliced, toasted bagel, peanut butter, honey, and a dash of cinnamon. The combination is the comedian’s own creation, one he relied on back when he was a struggling comic.
2. Miranda Kerr: Fried Chicken
When you think of a Victoria’s Secret model’s diet, fried chicken is probably not something that would normally make the cut. However, for Miranda Kerr, sometimes it’s okay to add a little to the menu.
“There are times when you want that piece of fried chicken. That’s my big weakness, and there’s nothing wrong with that.”
Everything in moderation.
1. Betty White: Hot Dogs
The Golden Girls actress loves nothing more than some delicious backyard BBQ hot dogs with a side of potato chips or fries.
Sometimes certain foods can bring on a comforting feeling, and having the chance to indulge in a favorite meal can bring a level of peace, especially when these stars are on the road and away from family and friends.
It’s always humbling to see favorite celebrities aren’t always on a strict diet and exercise regimen but are open to indulging on their favorite treats every now and again. Even when those treats are something as guilt-free as mushrooms (looking at you Katy Perry!)
So bring it on and enjoy what you love, at least every once in awhile.
