(Newser) – You often hear about celebrities struggling with addictions … but usually those addictions involve drugs, alcohol, or sex. Not so with these nine stars, rounded up by The Frisky:

  • Scarlett Johansson: She's "addicted" to buffalo wings, she admitted recently. "I can't stop eating them, I just can't get enough," she says.
  • Salma Hayek: "I'm like an alcoholic," she once said, except she wasn't referring to alcohol … she was referring to breastfeeding. "It is like, I don't care if I cry, I don't care if I am fat, I am just going to do it for one more week, one more month, and then when I see how much good it is doing her and I can't stop."

  • Nicole Kidman: Apparently she eats cake "three or four nights a week," and she still looks like that. Go ahead, be jealous.
  • Avril Lavigne: Anyone who's ever seen a picture of her anywhere already knows this, but the singer actually admitted that she is "addicted to … black eyeliner."
