Emma Roberts, Tom Hanks, and More

Emma Roberts is the latest celebrity to passionately show the masses the strange things she collects. For the actress, they are creepy-looking dolls (more on that below!). And in honor of the somewhat unhinged feelings she has about her collection (she wants to live in a Toy Story fantasy), we've rounded up other unusual celebrity collections ready for analysis. After all, the only way to gain insight into a celebrity's tastes and preferences is to look at the architecture and interior design of their home. It is the collections they keep at home that reveal the most about them. From Tom Hanks' obsession with typewriters to Amanda Seyfried's taxidermy decoration, these celebrity collections are sure to surprise, delight, or even inspire you to start your own weird collection.

Emma Roberts collects dolls and displays them on shelves near the office area of ​​her Los Angeles home. In a recent video tour with Architectural Digest, she excitedly shows off her dolls. Some of her favorites include “Leggy Jill,” “Drunk Cowgirl Barbie,” and “Blythe.” “I’m madly obsessed with them – in love with them,” she said.

She even went so far as to say that she hopes the dolls come to life. “I hope they wake me up every night,” she said. “It would be so exciting.”

Amanda Seyfried loves dead animals. The Mamma Mia! Star has an extensive collection of taxidermy, and they all have names. There is an owl named Beatrix, a chick named Linda and a miniature zebra named Kevin Sparkle. Many of them were sourced from taxidermy store Deyrolle in Paris, while others were gifts from her fellow celebrities, including Seth MacFarlane, who gave her the zebra, and Conan O'Brien, who gave her a raccoon.

Angelina Jolie is an avid knife collector. When the megastar was younger, she attended Renaissance fairs with her mother, where she began admiring various blades. Her collection reportedly includes handcrafted knives and daggers worth thousands of dollars.

Leonardo Dicaprio

US Entertainment Ampas Governors Awards Arrivals


One of Leonardo DiCaprio's homes was covered in Titanic memorabilia. His former interior designer said the display was tasteful and she believes DiCaprio's mother was the one who decorated the Malibu mansion with all the movie-inspired merchandise. He reportedly recently acquired a priceless collection of original Star Wars toys and went undercover to bid for them online. His collection also includes superhero figures, robots and toys.

Martha Stewart

US Media Culture Gala Prize


Martha Stewart has been collecting baskets for so long that she built a shed to house them on her property in Bedford, New York. According to their blog, it's known as the Basket House and is filled with hundreds of antique, vintage and modern baskets made from “pine, straw, willow, various grasses, threads and fine wood shavings.”

In the past, Stewart has presented her baskets in creative ways. She hung many of them from the kitchen ceiling of her Connecticut farmhouse around 1982. The wicker blanket look has certainly made a comeback in recent years, and we're here for it.

Tom Hanks

Tom Hanks is obsessed with typewriters, which he began collecting at the age of 19. At one point he owned hundreds of them. “They are a brilliant combination of art and technology,” Hanks told the New York Times in 2019. “Every time you type something on a typewriter, it is a unique work of art.”

Hanks said he planned at the time to narrow his collection down to a specific model. He reportedly began sending them unsolicited to typewriter shops in 2023. It is unclear how many he currently owns. In any case, his influence on the typewriter world will live on. He wrote a book of short stories in 2017, each about typewriters, and was featured in a documentary about typewriters called “California Typewriter.”
