Believe it or not, celebrities have their kooky quirks, too. A number of famous musicians, actors, and athletes collect unusual things. Sure, some famous people like to collect rare and vintage items. But some funny celebrity collections include weapons, and other weird celebrity collections even revolve around bugs.

Who will you find on this list of celebrities with weird collections? Angelina Jolie may be an A-list Hollywood actress, but her choice of collectible is unique, to say the least: knives. She is also known to collect first edition books. Johnny Depp reportedly has dozens and dozens of special edition Barbie dolls. "I've played with a lot of Barbies and Kens for my kids. It's actually one of the things I'm good at," he said.

Would you have guessed that Ben Stiller is a Trekkie? During the 2015 Oscar Ceremony, the comedian even admitted to owning two signed pairs of Spock ears from the original Star Trek series. Other celebrities with weird collections include Quentin Tarantino (themed board games), Neil Young (model trains), and Tom Hanks (vintage typewriters).
