List Criteria: List of celebrities with Obsessive Compulsive Disorder

List of Famous People with OCD, loosely ranked by fame and popularity. Obsessive-compulsive disorder or OCD is an anxiety disorder that inflicts an individual with feelings of fear and worry that can only be released by engaging in particular obsessions or compulsions. People who suffer from OCD frequently are compelled into repetitive behaviors or actions that they recognize as irrational.

Who is the most famous person who has OCD? “Good Luck Chuck” star Jessica Alba tops our list. Alba says that her OCD stems from needing to control something. Her disorder does not impact her on the set. Cameron Diaz's OCD is a bit more severe. The “Something About Mary” actress has a fear of germs and does not like to touch door nobs. Other famous actresses who have OCD are Jennifer Love Hewitt, Charlize Theron and Penelope Cruz.
