Nobody’s cup runs with empathy over the needs associated with fame. Constant paparazzi and public scrutiny are a small compromise between wealth, fame, and the ease of life that comes with winning capitalist play.

They tell stories and reveal cute facts about themselves to get us citizens to identify with them and watch their films and shows. Here are five celebrities with some of the strangest collections.

Seyfried spoke about her twice in Conan’s late night show Taxidermy collection. Because of the hassle and cost of owning live horses, she chose dead animals to keep her company at home. She has some notable pieces in her collection, including a fox, a goat, and a miniature horse. Conan himself gave her a raccoon with a rocket backpack, which Seyfried had named in honor of the host. Everyone else and I would call BS that the collection was just a nuisance to being “quirky” in Hollywood. But Seyfried, the queen of our hearts since Veronica Mars and Mean Girls, seems to be a cool girl for strange things.
