List Rules You wouldn't expect them to be in the same room, but it sure is cool. Vote up your favorite odd celebrity pairings.

Okay, so it's not that crazy to find a picture of a celebrity. Paparazzi love to shoot those. It's also not unexpected for a celebrity to be hanging out with another celeb. Maybe they were dating, maybe they were in the same movie. But it is weird when a famous person is hanging out with another famous person who comes from an entirely different famous world.

This list looks at the oddest pairings of famous people. Just some cool people hanging out with each other. Take a look at these classic, rare photos of these awesome people and celebrity odd couples. It really makes you wonder what they were doing together. Why was Charlie Chaplin spending time with Albert Einstein? Why was Pelé in the same room as Sylvester Stallone? How do Redd Foxx and Malcolm X even know each other? Check them and more in this awesome list of odd celebrity pairings.

You might not recognize Charlie Chaplin because he dropped his signature hat and mustache. He didn't do it specifically for the brilliant theoretical physicist, but it seems like Albert Einstein was impressed. Together, the two went on to write some of the most renowned slapstick comedies that were inspired by new trends in theoretical physics.

In 1983, Freddie Mercury recorded some tracks with Michael Jackson that have remained in Queen‘s vault. Word is that drummer Roger Taylor and Brian May have completed them, and the songs will see the light of day, pending approval from Jackson’s estate. Literally, legendary.

Tupac Shakur hanging out with KISS is really cool. Perhaps Tupac is secretly a member of the KISS ARMY? Did he actually fake his death? Is he really a disguised member of KISS, but nobody noticed because he's disguised beneath their signature face paint? We can never really know for sure.
