In the age of social media, fans of celebrities can feel closer to them like never before. Snapchat, Twitter, and Instagram allow us to peek inside their private lives, see what they do daily, and even catch a glimpse of their not-so-humble homes.
But even with all this social media, a lot happens behind closed doors that the public has no idea about. Celebrities always worry about paparazzi and reporters learning their secrets, but they forget that the best source is the one they don’t even notice: the housekeepers. Read on the hear all the juicy secrets that housekeepers and staff have spilled about their former employers.
Christina Aguilera Loves To Spice Up Her Marriage
According to the pop singer’s housemaid, Xtina still likes to get Dirrty if you know what I mean. Back when she was married to Jordan Bratman, Christina would use sexy costumes to keep Bratman entertained in the bedroom.
The housekeeper exposed the fact that she would almost always come into work the next day and clean up a wide range of provocative costumes. Xtina used everything from “maid’s dresses” to “nurse’s uniforms.”
Ryan Gosling Pees Sitting Down
This Canadian hunk is apparently way weirder than anyone thought. His housekeeper explained that he always pees sitting down, which in hindsight probably makes their job a lot easier.
Ryan has some other strange habits too that his assistant exposed that include crawling up the stairs on all fours and sleeping with his head at the foot of the bed. Ryan, you’re lucky you’re so good-looking, because that’s real weird, but I respect it.
Jessica Simpson’s Hair Freaks Out The Maid
The blonde hair, brown-eyed Texan babe is known for her looks, so it’s no surprise to anyone that Jessica might have a little bit of added help to achieve her look. Both her housekeeper and staffers freak out about the fact Jessica leaves her hair extensions everywhere. One of them even said, “it looks like an animal has been shedding.”
One housekeeper got an even worse scare when she thought she saw a huge black spider in Jess’ room, but it was just a fake eyelash.
Jennifer Aniston Flaunts Everything She’s Got For The Staff
Numerous people who have worked for the former Friends starlet have confirmed she is not shy about showing off her body. Jennifer will constantly walk around the house topless, in sheer clothes, or with just her bra and underwear on.
I mean, if I look as good as her when I’m nearly 50, I’d also show it off for everyone to see. If you can’t be comfortable in your own home, what can you do?
Justin Theroux Consults Fifty Shades Of Grey
Things don’t need to be super obvious or thrown on the floor for housekeepers to learn your secrets. The same housekeeper that exposed Jennifer Aniston’s naked business also tells that her ex-hubby Theroux kept a copy of Fifty Shades of Grey on the bedside table.
In his defense, he could have just been enjoying the novel. But sources say the real reason was because the couple would consult the book for inspiration.
Sandra Bullock Basically Lives In A Cave
Okay, no, it’s not technically a cave since Sandra lives in a million dollar home, but she likes the housekeeping service to keep it looking like one. Sandra insists that the curtains always stay closed no matter what.
Sources say she does this because she doesn’t want the paparrazzi getting a glimpse of her adopted son, Louis. She’s so paranoid that she keeps the curtains closed even when they’re not at home.
George Clooney Has No Manners Around The Help
Multiple housekeepers for Mr. Clooney have said that even though he seems like a gentleman on screen, he’s anything but that in person. Yes, he’s polite enough when speaking, but he has no boundaries and often farts and burps loudly near his household staff.
Clooney is also pretty stingy and marks how much alcohol is left in his bottles so that no housekeeper thinks they can take a swing. We hope Amal changed some of these habits.
Mariah Carey Always Has The Liquor Flowing
Nearly every staff member in Mariah’s household has admitted that the songstress treats her staff extremely well. They definitely earn their keep though after hearing about her drinking antics.
Before she had her two kids, Mariah was known to “drink so much that she gets loopy” and would need her maids and assistants to help her get dressed. By the sounds of it though, having Morrocan and Monroe changed Mariah for the better.
Taylor Swift Is Officially A Crazy Cat Lady
Taylor has become notoriously personal over the years, so it’s been hard to even catch a glimpse of what her house looks like. Her housekeeps admit that she’s exactly what you’d expect: a crazy cat lady. Along with her own cats, her entire home is filled with photos of the cats.
Most of her clothes and shoes have cat patterns, and one housekeeper even cleans up the cat food and milk that Taylor leaves outside for strays.
Housekeepers Find Cigerette Butts Everywhere In Kristen Stewart’s House
Apparently, there’s nowhere Kristen Stewart won’t smoke when she’s at home. The moody actress is practically a chain smoker behind closed doors. Her housekeepers have had to clean out cigarette butts from everywhere you can imagine.
The Twilight actress leaves her cigarette butts in the shower, potted plants, and one housekeeper even found one “inside the fridge.” Hopefully, she kicks the habit or at least buys an ashtray soon. Just think about the curtains in her house.
Tom Cruise Runs His Home Like A Hotel
Back when the legendary action star was married to Katie Holmes, housekeepers said cleaning their home was the hardest gig they ever had. Tom runs his home like a hotel when family and friends come to stay.
He was especially strict about how clean the house was and didn’t even trust his own wife. His employees said that Tom didn’t even allow Katie to use some parts of the house like the gym.
Dean McDermott Goes Pantless
It’s not just Jennifer Aniston who likes to flaunt it all when they’re home alone. Dean McDermott’s outfit of choice around the house is no shirt, no shoes, just underwear. It’s not confirmed whether they’re boxers or briefs.
The body confidence doesn’t come as a surprise. Dean and wife Tori Spelling have four kids together, so obviously, she’s perfectly happy with his free-flowing ways. We’re sure the housekeepers aren’t complaining that much either.
Britney Spears Has Quite A Strange Nightstand
A housekeeper for Britney back in 2010 revealed that her nightstand isn’t exactly PG-13. Brit’s drawer is full of adult toys, but that’s not even the most embarrassing part. The same housekeeper also pulled some half-eaten burgers, fries, and cookies out from underneath her bed.
2007 was a rough year for Britney, but we had no idea it was throw-burgers-under-the-bed bad. We’re surprised the housekeeper didn’t have to call pest control after.
Demi Moore’s House Always Has The Perfect Lighting
When you’re cleaning up someone’s house, it helps to have ample lighting so you can see every nook, cranny, and dust bunny. That is not the case in Demi’s house. Her housekeeper says that the only lighting in the Moore household is soft amber because the lighting is “more flattering.”
Demi looks incredible for being 50, but I’d want to always have the most flattering light too if it was possible.
Jennifer Lopez Is Notoriously Cheap
She might have the cash, but she doesn’t want to spend it. When it comes to housekeeping, J-Lo is so bad that her secret nickname was “Pay-Low.” The Latina entertainer expects her staff to practically slave away for nearly half the cost of most housekeeping jobs.
Why would she treat her staff so bad? One housekeeper thought it was because Jennifer had to struggle to make it, so she wants everyone to feel the struggle too.
Miley Cyrus Never House Trained Her Animals
One of the pop singer’s former housekeepers complained all the time about having to pick up dog poop at Miley’s beck and call. Miley is a huge pet lover so it makes sense she might not have time to actively house train every single animal.
The housekeeper said most of Miley’s pets would do their business in the house and it translated to a smell that was almost impossible to get rid of.
Jim Carrey Is All Over The Place
For years the comedian struggled with substance abuse and mental illness and that made it hard for housekeepers to handle working for him. One of his staff members said that Carrey was a lot like his movie characters in the way that he’s incredibly unpredictable. Apparently, you never know what kind of Jim Carrey you’re going to get.
The same housekeeper said, “one moment he is the sweetest…and the next he is screaming at you.”
Lindsay Lohan Is A Wild Child In Her House Too
Hollywood’s favorite wild child-turned-Mykonos dancer is just as crazy in the confines of her own apartment. LiLo’s housekeepers often tip-toed around the house cleaning up after a wild night. Lindsay would almost always sleep past noon so they had to be careful not to wake her.
That wasn’t the worst part though. In 2012, LiLo had to get her housekeeper to call a locksmith because she lost the key to her trunk full of adult toys.
Bruce Springsteen Flirts With The Staff
Of course The Boss loves to feel like a boss when he has a ton of young women cleaning up after him. One housekeeper admitted that not a day goes by where Bruce doesn’t hit on one of his housekeepers or assistants. He’s known to walk around the house winking and flirting non-stop.
It sounds like Bruce needs a special all-male staff to keep him focused on making more music for the people.
Kate Gosselin Has Trouble Keeping A Housekeeper
The matriarch of Kate Plus 8 is known to be a little difficult to work with, and the same goes for hiring housekeepers. I mean, can you really blame her? She’s a mother to ten children so there’s no way she’s had a full eight-hour sleep in years.
The housekeepers have trouble staying on too long for Kate just because of the demands. Cleaning up after so many kids and dealing with Kate’s mood swings can’t be worth the pay.
Johnny Depp Has Quite The Costume Collection
Depp is quite an odd actor and apparently, that weird vibe translates over at home. One housekeeper admits to having to clean a closet that’s entirely made of costumes for Johnny. He’ll apparently try them on at a whim just to “slip into character.”
He also reportedly walks around in costume to make his girlfriends and wives laugh, but I’m sure there wasn’t all that much laughter going on in the Depp household.
Reese Witherspoon Is The Dream Employer
Most celebrities seem like an absolute nightmare to work for, but Reese is apparently the exact opposite. She’s so naturally tidy that her maids barely have any cleaning to do, despite having three kids. She’s always polite and generous with pay.
She’s not only generous with pay but also with gifts. One housekeeper got to take home nearly $200,000 worth of designer clothes that Reese was just going to throw away.
Angelina Jolie Doesn’t Seem To Live Up To The Super-Mom Image
Jolie is known for being a supermom on the red carpet with multiple kids of her own and adopted children. This may be what the world sees, but her staff members say otherwise.
Both a housekeeper and ex-bodyguard spilled the beans on how she handles her kids’ tantrums. Apparently, when they are upset and crying, Angelina just stands there and laughs. It might be hard to watch as an outsider.
Jamie Dornan Loves A Not-So-Scandalous Hobby
Considering the fact Dornan plays a pretty convincing Christian Grey, no one expected to hear that he’s obsessed with needlepoint. Dornan is relatively private and has never had a reason to show the public the inside of his home, but now we’re suddenly curious.
One of his former staff members admitted the walls are covered with Dornan’s favorite needlepoint. Do you think he has a secret needlepoint dungeon for entertaining other needlepoint-obsessed guests?
Selena Gomez Is A Serious Slob
Some people are slobs, but in a “simply unorganized way,” but not Selena. Both a former personal assistant and housekeeper exposed her gross habits. Apparently, it only takes Selena 24 hours to completely trash a hotel room.
She will leave makeup stains on every fabric surface you can find, and isn’t afraid to leave her dirty undergarments laying around. You’d think for such a quiet, sweet celebrity she’d be a bit cleaner.
Christian Bale Likes To Pretend He’s Patrick Bateman
Bale’s publicist and personal assistant revealed that the actor has an obsession with one particular character that he played. Bale will often call up his friends or family members and pretend to be Bates from American Psycho. Just imagine working in another room and hearing “It’sssssss Patrick!”
We’re not sure why of all characters, he chose to be obsessed with Bates. Why not pretend you’re the billionaire vigilante with a cool car?
Paula Deen Is Basically No Fun
One of Deen’s former assistants got in some serious trouble after publicly complaining about his boss’ lifestyle. Deen went on a 2013 Royal Caribbean “Cruise With Paula” and her assistant was along for the ride.
According to him, the cruise was like a “floating nursing home.” The rooms were minuscule and Deen removed all the liquor from the minibar. Hey, at least if the rooms are tiny, there isn’t much room for being messy.
An Unknown Celebrity Has Some Serious OCD
One personal assistant spilled some of the beans on their former employer who has some seriously weird quirks. The unknown celebrity is a male who has a strange obsession with gourds. Every gourd has a Star Wars figurine inside it and the housekeepers have to be careful not to touch them.
He also only eats off of abalone shell plates and has to “tune” his voice before every event. We wonder who it could be.
Ariana Grande Needs To Be Carried
The only other employee who could learn as much about a celebrity as a housekeeper is their bodyguard. Just think, a bodyguard is around the celebrity at home and every public outing.
One former bodyguard found it weird when his employer, Ariana Grande, requested to be carried at any point. She likes to be picked up like a baby and carried around whenever she just doesn’t feel like walking. It’s a whole mood.
Naomi Campbell Is Candle-Obsessed
The housekeepers and personal assistant for supermodel Naomi Campbell are constantly worried they will mess up her candle placement. Naomi is obsessed with lily-scented candles and needs at least 25 in every room she stays in.
There has to be five candles in the bathroom, ten in the bedroom, and ten in the living room. If you pick one up to clean underneath and accidentally misplace it, then she’ll throw a fit.
