12 Of The Biggest Celebrities With Obsessive Compulsive Disorder
We often assume celebrities lead the perfect life. We don’t normally imagine that the rich and the famous also have their own fears, insecurities and anxieties. In fact, one common anxiety many celebs have is obsessive-compulsive disorder, or OCD.
While the disorder can be frustrating, many celebrities believe that their OCD has helped them become better actors or performers. OCD, after all, starts with the desire to do things perfectly. That ‘desire for perfection’ is clearly manifested in their craft as well. People with OCD continue to have numerous accomplishments. So, if you’re one with similar anxieties and compulsions, you’re not alone — even the big stars have them too. Here are 12 of the biggest stars with OCD.
One of the most famous billionaires, Donald Trump is afraid of germs and refuse to press elevator buttons. He also prefers not to shake people’s hands.
As a child, the Titanic star has an odd obsession for sidewalks! His childhood obsession meant that he had ‘rituals’ for walking on sidewalks. He had to step on the same crack or gum stain on the way to school, on the way home, etc. If he missed stepping on a particular path, he had to go back a block and start again.
Football star David Beckham has to make sure everything in the Beckham home is perfect and orderly. His shirts have to be in order and segregated by color. He makes sure the food in the fridge are organized too. Every food or drink can has to come in pairs. If there were three Coke cans in the fridge, he will throw out the third one because it has to be an even number.
