Celebrities Collect Things Besides Fans

GRETNA, La. (Wireless Flash - FlashNews) – Celebrities collect more than just fans. In fact, some famous folks have massive collections of some pretty bizarre things.

According to a new book, What Celebrities Collect! (Pelican), Matthew Broderick has a big collection of trombones while Harry Connick, Jr. collects cuff links – even though he never wears them.

  • Johnny Depp has a collection of bugs mounted under glass and often frequents a “bug store” whenever he’s in Paris.

  • Former Hulk Lou Ferrigno enjoys hulking around his collection of Beanie Babies.

  • Angelina Jolie has a large collection of knives and daggers in her home but keeps them in a locked case so that her kids can’t get to them.

  • Finally, John Travolta has a large collection of airline memorabilia and his prized possession is a 1958 TWA flight schedule for the longest propeller-airline trip in history because his mother-in-law was on the trip.
