Think you know what these stars are into in their spare time? Get ready to be surprised by these really unusual celebrity hobbies.

Naomi Campbell

You’ll never guess this supermodel’s favorite hobby in a million years. Give up? It’s synchronized swimming. Apparently she and her fellow supermodel and BFF Kate Moss love it. They even traveled to Phuket, Thailand for a week’s worth of professional lessons!

David Arquette

Not only does David Arquette knit, but he’s also so into his hobby that he’s even graced the cover of Celebrity Scarves 2: Hollywood Knits for Breast Cancer Research.

Claudia Schiffer

Naomi Campbell’s not the only supermodel with an unusual hobby. Claudia Schiffer likes to collect insects and has quite a collection of dead and mounted creepy crawlers.

Pierce Brosnan

Just when we thought the former James Bond couldn’t get any cooler, we found this video of his hidden talent: eating fire!

Tiger Woods

Golf isn’t the only sport that Tiger Woods loves. When he’s not on the golf course, you can find him taking part in one of his favorite hobbies: spearfishing!

Eva Longoria

There are a lot of unusual hobbies on this list, but Eva Longoria’s waxing hobby seems like the most uncomfortable. But despite the pain, the actress says that she loves to spend her sparse spare time touching up her Brazilian wax.

Will Smith

Will Smith’s hobby? Fencing. And he’s not alone. Apparently, Smith, Tom Cruise and David Beckham get together to cross steel and bond.

Will Smith said, “Tom has a room for training. We don’t get enough time to hang out, just us three guys, so this is his way of getting together and bonding. David and I go to his home and just do fencing. It’s a lot of fun.”

Bob Barker

Don’t let the gray hair fool you. Not only is Bob Barker a trained black belt, but he also studied under legendary actor and martial artist Chuck Norris.

Colin Farrell

Colin Farrell a line dancer? Yes. And it’s not just something he does in his spare time. He’s so good that he’s even taught others his moves!

Kristen Stewart

Something about the consistently stoic look on Kristen Stewart’s face makes juggling the last hobby we’d expect the star to have. But it is! It just goes to show that you can’t judge a book by its cover!

Mila Kunis

Looking at Mila Kunis,  you might not immediately think “video game enthusiast,” but Kunis loves playing World of Warcraft. But she does, maybe a little bit too much. Kunis said she has to be careful to monitor her game time, or she can spend way too much time in the virtual world.

Taylor Swift

Taylor Swift’s unusual hobby is making snow globes, which is just about the most adorable thing we’ve ever heard.

Johnny Depp

Johnny Depp’s unusual hobby is collecting pigeon skeletons, which somehow seems about right for him.

Mike Tyson

Before the documentary about Mike Tyson’s unusual hobby was made, we never would have guessed that pigeon racing was his sport of choice. But Mike Tyson said he loves to wake up early and condition his birds to win big: “It’s like training for a fight. You have to prepare it every morning for the 20 or 70-mile flight.”

Morgan Freeman

Speaking of unusual critter-related activities, actor Morgan Freeman keeps bees. But not just for fun, he’s interested in saving the environment as well!
