Being obsessed with celebrity diets is understandable on some level. Actors and singers often have enviably toned bodies, so it makes sense that laypeople would want to emulate their eating habits. But becoming obsessed with the actual, physical food that celebrities have eaten, with the leftover crumbs from celebrities' meals, is considerably stranger. Nonetheless, the Museum (really more of a display case) of Celebrity Leftovers in Cornwall, UK , has been meeting that demand for the past seven years.

Their holdings include a morsel of a croissant shared by Judi Dench and Sir Ian McKellan, a sliver of Prince Charles's bread pudding and a piece of zucchini that Mia Wasikowski skipped over while eating a bowl of soup. The Museum preserves the leftovers in airtight jars, then sells them, often for hundreds of pounds sterling, to raise money for children's cancer charity CLIC Sargent.
