(Newser) – Lots of people bite their nails, but not Olivia Munn: She plucks out her eyelashes, she told the New York Daily News this week. The odd tendency stems from a disorder called trichotillomania, the Huffington Post notes. Eight more stars with habits that are a bit strange:

  • Johnny Depp: He likes … playing with Barbies?
  • Jason Segel: One of the rooms in his house is "sort of dedicated to puppets," he once revealed.

  • Jane Lynch: The Glee star used to be addicted to cough syrup.
  • Simon Cowell: "I climb trees daily. It's like a ritual," he once said.
