Have you ever wondered what it’s like to be a big Hollywood star? Your glamorous life would consist of movie premieres and big time parties, but there’s one area of life that celebrities and “regular” people still have in common, and that’s sleep. We may be worlds apart from our favorite movie stars, but when it comes to our sleep habits, we all have the same problems sleeping and many of us have the same sleeping habits. Sometimes, it seems like we could give the celebs a few pointers on sleeping better! How a celebrity sleeps has a lot to do with their busy schedules and sometimes, there just aren’t enough hours of the day to pass out on the big comfy latex mattress.
Health Magazine did a series of great interviews with some of the stars, here’s a snapshot of how a few of today’s biggest names get their shut eye each night.
Clarkson told Self magazine that she composes songs and lyrics as she’s trying to drift off to sleep. The first American Idol winner can’t wait until morning; she feels she has to immediately write down or record her ideas. “That’s why I have a hard time sleeping,” she said. “A lot of those times are at night.” Clarkson may be on to something: Sleep experts often recommend keeping a notebook next to your bed so you can write down thoughts or worries that threaten to keep you awake; they suggest that you put them out of your mind and refer back to them the next day.
Some stars make it a priority to get enough sleep. Actress-turned-singer Jennifer Lopez swears by eight hours a night as her number-one beauty secret. “Sleep is my weapon,” she once said. “I try to get eight hours a night. I think what works best is sleep, water—and a good cleanser.”
This mega diva sleeps about 15 hours a night, she has said, and keeps about 20 humidifiers in her bedroom. She likes her room to be a “steam room.”
Rosie O’Donnell has severe sleep apnea and snores. Before she sought treatment, doctors estimated that she stopped breathing as many as 200 times a night.
Late-night host Jimmy Kimmel told The New York Times Magazine that he suffers from narcolepsy. He said the disorder has caused him to fall asleep in his car or drift off during afternoon writers’ meetings—“not the best way to make people feel good about their material,” he joked. In 2003, he told Esquire that he wasn’t diagnosed until adulthood and that the disorder feels like “somebody’s gently sitting on your brain.”
