10 Of the most hypochondriac celebrities in Hollywood


Hollywood seems to be battling a disease every time. One or other star constantly seem to suffer from one disease or another like Selena Gomez suffering from depression, Charlie Sheen finding out that he is HIV positive and other stars revealing shocking details about the various diseases they have battled over the years. Celebrities are often lauded for coming clean about their battles with ailments as it puts media limelight on the said disease and scientists get much needed funds for it. But there are some celebrities that seem to be constantly sick with one thing or another.

Here are 10 most hypochondriac celebs ever in Hollywood.

1 Amy Schumer

Funny woman Amy Schumer had made her career of exploiting all the Hollywood stereotypes that are presented with respect to a star. Plus the success of her movies recently has made her the thing that she made fun of, a quintessential over sharing on social media celebrity. She has shared images of her bruised arm when she appeared on SNL and then a photo of her from a hospital in France. She also fooled public into thinking that she was pregnant when her career is at rise.

2 Lady Gaga

Lady Gaga went on the Larry King Live and many other shows to announce that she had tested positive for borderline lupus. She also had bouts with eating disorders and mental illnesses, but it seems like that as her song quality is dwindling down, her imaginary illnesses and her show of being a patient has started to increase.

Her sense of dress and poise is well documented in media. But she is often accused of obsessing over herself, an example being her strict diet which followed before her wedding to transform her masculine body into a feminine one. She was also admitted to hospital while being pregnant for something every pregnant woman goes through – morning sickness.

Hugh Jackman is the star of hit films like the X-Men and Wolverine and also a noted skin cancer survivor. He had a scare with skin cancer some time back and since recovering from it, his social media accounts are filled with advice and links of skin cancer related material. Looks like the hypochondriac bug has bitten him also and his constant worrying over his health and not heeding to the advice from his medical team has become a media drama of sorts.

7 Jennifer Grey

Jennifer Grey was supposed to be the next big thing in the Hollywood after the dizzying heights of Dirty Dancing. Public took to her image as a sultry dancer and actress was going to have a stellar career, this until she decided to have surgery to fix her nose, which she thought was going to become an obstacle between her and her career. Unfortunately, when she came back from the surgery, she was unrecognizable to her fans and her career fizzled out. She then made a comeback on Dancing with the Stars where she had a supposed cancer scare and then a back injury, confirming the news that she was also another hypochondriac obsessing over her health rather than her career.

8 Dennis Quaid

Dennis Quaid is supposed to be the same brother of actor Randy Quaid, but Dennis himself has been found to be obsessive about his health and other issues. As per his admissions, he overcame an addiction to cocaine, has body dysmorphic disorder and battled anorexia. He is very quick to share the stories of his wins in health area, but cannot say the same about his movies. He is very quick to go on the internet to find out more and more about an ailment and some well wishers think that he might pass this mindset onto his children as well.
