There's little doubt that being a celebrity can take a toll on a person's self-image. You can hardly blame them; we build them up in the press, hound their every move, and then the minute life happens, we love to kick them when they're down. And the tabloids love nothing more than to latch onto questionable celebrity diets.
Body image is absolutely everything in Hollywood, and since the early days of the film studios, celebrities have been doing all sorts of weird and wacky things in the name of a thinner, more toned, all-around more fabulous (and photogenic) version of themselves. No wonder there are so many weird celebrity diets.
While we like to think, these days, we're a lot more informed about what we put into our bodies and the long-term effects it might have on our health, it's fair to say that celebrities often let the pressure to look good onscreen affect their judgment when it comes to all things diet-related.
Remember that banquet feast scene from Indiana Jones and the Temple of Doom? The one where Indy and his posse sat down to a scrumptious feast that began with a scorpion and spider salad and ended with a chilled monkey brain sorbet? With some of these celebrities, that's not too far from the level of sheer disgustingness we're dealing with here. That might be a bit of an exaggeration, but these weird, questionable, and for some, downright gross celebrity diets are all the proof we need that sometimes, the rich and famous will do just about anything to keep themselves looking trim!
