THE CRAZIEST QUIZZES OF THE STARS: The strangest demands of celebrities in employment contracts

It is not new that Hollywood actors, world-famous singers and showbiz stars have special requirements in their employment contracts.

For example, it is well known that Julia Roberts had a nudity clause for decades, that Roger Moore requested an endless supply of Montecristo cigars while playing James Bond, and that Paris Hilton requested an unlimited number of lobsters while filming one of her movies.

However, these are only the most famous. In reality, there are many celebrities who have included … special requirements in their contracts.

Here they are.

Katy Perry always knows what she wants on her tours. For example, the singer reportedly likes to eat fruits and vegetables before a concert, and she prefers water dispensers to bottled water.

And she is very picky about the flowers in the dressing room: she only wants white and purple hydrangeas, pink and white roses and peonies. If none of these flowers are available, they will settle for an arrangement of seasonal white flowers, including orchids. But they won’t accept anything else.

Tom Cruise is basically the dictionary definition of a movie star.

So it’s quite surprising that he has a written clause in his contract that prevents his likeness from being used for action figures, video games, and other products.

An actor with George Clooney’s reputation will obviously never stay in a “simple” hotel room while shooting a movie. Therefore, when he worked on the movie Gravity, his contract included a clause that provided for luxury accommodation built for his exclusive use.

More specifically, Clooney requested that this accommodation have terraces and hot tubs, a basketball court and landscaped garden and be connected to a private beach.

According to a British tabloid The Sunwhen the legendary singer performed at London’s O2 Arena in 2019, she made requests that included a bubble machine and white and milk chocolate fountains.

Plus, the singer usually wants an entire hotel room just to house her wig collection.

Since he is one of the richest and most successful pop stars in the world, we could already imagine Justin Bieber making extravagant demands.

During his tours, the singer travels with a private chef who prepares his meals. Bieber would therefore request that the dishes prepared by the chef bear the name of his hits.

There was a rather unusual clause in Uma Thurman’s contract for the film Eloise in Paris.

In fact, the actress could veto decisions made by the film’s director or her co-stars. She was able to fire all her colleagues during the shooting of the film.

One of the most coveted contract clauses in Hollywood is the “pay or play” clause, which requires that the actor be paid his contracted fee no matter what happens.

This is the case of Johnny Depp, who received a $16 million payout from Warner Bros. despite being fired from the third film Fantastic beasts.

After an allegedly traumatic experience, Barbra Streisand decided that every bathroom she would ever step into in her life should have peach toilet paper that matched her complexion.

Her contract also requires rose petals to be placed in her bathrooms regularly.
