Lest we ever forget, celebrities are regular people too.

Sure, they have paparazzi stalking them, taking pictures as they do normal things like grocery shop and go to the doctor. And, yeah, they probably can't use the bathroom without a tabloid reporting that they're snorting lines of a toilet paper dispenser.

But deep down they're just regular people with hobbies and hidden talents. People who like to collect things and build stuff.

They also happen to have the leisure time (sort of) and finances to support their pastimes. Also they make movies and look beautiful and walk red carpets and sing and dance!

They also use their free time in unexpected, fun ways. From needlepoint to knitting to knife collecting, check out 13 odd celebrity hobbies below:

When it comes to some of Hollywood's biggest and brighest stars, many of them are quick to thank their parents for unconditional support throughout the years.

Others, however, have tales of very public estrangement from their parents, their fathers in particular. Both make for interesting celebrity gossip stories.

Since it's Father's Day, we thought we'd take a look at 9 celebrities and their dads.

Miley Cyrus and Billy Ray Cyrus
Miley's dad, Billy Ray Cyrus, has always supported his daughter's musical career, for good or for ill.

It's hard to find a more supportive father than Billy Ray Cyrus. Despite any and all of Miley Cyrus' crazy antics throughout the years, Billy Ray has stood by his baby girl. 

Since it was his career which introduced her to this life, he's probably making the right call by keeping any disappointments he may have to himself.

She's a humanitarian. She's a successful actress. She's a mother of six.

And now she's 39 years old.

Angelina Jolie celebrates a birthday today, immediately following the biggest movie opening of her career. Oh, yes, it's safe to say fans like seeing the beauty as Maleficent.

But might fans see no more of Jolie on the big screen in the near future?

She recently hinted at retirement after her role as Cleopatra, saying it may be the film in which she finishes her career in a "great way."

It would be hard to blame the star if this ends up being the case. She has young children at home. She has to learn how to put on make up properly. She is involved in a number of important causes.

And she could simply spend everyday gazing into the eyes of lover Brad Pitt. It's not a bad life!

Angelina Jolie has starred in a number of popular movies over the years, but none enjoyed a more successful first weekend than her newly released retelling of the Sleeping Beauty tale.

While reviews for Maleficent were mixed at best, the movie pulled in $70 million domestically and over $100 mill overseas to give Angelina her biggest opening to date. 

Analysts credit the film's female-based marketing campaign, and early reports indicate that Maleficent's audience was over 60% women.

The movie marked the big screen debut of Angelina's daughter Vivienne, who played a younger version of Elle Fanning's Aurora. Now that she's proven to be box office gold, will little Viv start popping up in all of Angie's films?

At this week's Maleficent premiere in Hollywood, Brad Pitt got attacked by an idiotic prankster.

Sadly, according to a number of Maleficent reviews, this may have been the most entertaining thing to happen related to the film.

How could a film that features Angelina Jolie as the real-life version of this famous Disney villain go wrong? We'll let a number of the country's most prominent movie critics explain...

While this is Jolie's show, obviously - and she's terrifically arch - the surprising dearth of other compelling characters doesn't offer much distraction when things get off track. - Tom Russo

Blockbuster effects can't mask bland storytelling. - Tom Clift

Angelna Jolie's role in the forthcoming Disney film Maleficent is one of the most highly-anticipated of the actress' career.

Jolie spoke with Movie Fanatic recently and discussed the painstaking preparation she underwent for the title part, as well as the difficult decision to have her 5-year-old daughter Vivienne act in the film.

"I practiced a lot with my children with my voice," says Jolie. "When I got them laughing, I figured I was on to something. Well, they laughed, they cried."

"I think that was part of the thing with this role is you realize there's no halfway," the actress adds. "If you're gonna do it, you're gonna have to just fully get into it and enjoy it."

As for the decision to have little Vivienne play a younger version of Elle Fanning in the film, Angelina says she still has mixed feelings about the prospect of her daughter becoming an actress:

What is it about some celebrities that draws us to them like magnets? It's their eyes. 

From baby blue to big and brown, we just can't help but stare at their peepers, mesmerized by what we find therein. Which in the case of these 19 celebrities with amazing eyes is beauty.

Are you listening, Gwyneth Paltrow?

Angelina Jolie has a message to send you and any other wealthy mother who dares to complain about parenthood: SHUT UP!

A few weeks after Paltrow said it's much harder for her to be a mother than it is for someone who only works 9-5 (due to busy shooting schedules, which she's apparently obligated to take on), Jolie said the opposite in an interview with The New York Daily News.

Angie and Brad

"I’m not a single mom with two jobs trying to get by every day," the Maleficent star told the newspaper. "I have much more support than most people, most women in this world. And I have the financial means to have a home and health care and food."

Jolie, of course, never actually referenced Paltrow in the discussion.

A new report from Star magazine claims that Angelina Jolie is pregnant with her seventh child via in-vitro fertilization.

A source says the actress is already two months along and has been referring to the new addition to her ever-expanding brood as her "miracle baby."

Star doesn't have the greatest reputation for reliability, and there's a good chance this story is BS, but Angie has spoken before about her desire to raise a huge family and this isn't the first time we've heard rumors that she had her eggs frozen in the event that she and Brad decided to have another child.

Jolie spoke about her wedding plans with People magazine earlier this week and disclosed that she's basically letting her kids plan the whole thing.

Maybe they also pressured her for a new younger sibling? These kids seem to have an awful lot of clout!
