10.  Emma Watson – Bibles

Emma Watson is best-known for her portrayal of Hermione Granger in the Harry Potter film series.  While the films were largely successful, some felt that the theme of witchcraft meant that there was an association with evil. As a result, fans began sending Watson copies of The Bible because they felt that she needed to be redeemed by the word of God.  According to Watson, she now has a collection of approximately 20 Bibles.

8. The Jonas Brothers – Dead Shark

During the peak of their success, The Jonas Brothers were the most popular boy band on the scene.  Their smooth voices and boyish good looks made them the object of affection for young fans all over the world.  However, one Jonas Brothers fan took things a little too far when he/she decided to send the trio a strange gift.  According to the brothers, “The craziest thing we’ve ever been given is definitely a dead shark…It wasn’t a real big shark though. It was only a baby shark but they’d preserved it in this tube for us. That was odd. They didn’t even leave a note explaining. It was just, ‘Here’s a dead shark.'”

2. Jared Leto – Ear

If an actor’s skill can be judged based on what fans are willing to give, then Jared Leto must be one of the greatest actors of all-time.

According to Leto, “Someone cut their ear off once and sent it to me, that was very strange. The note just said, ‘Are you listening?’. I never knew who it was, who’s missing their ear out there.” Leto posted the photo on Instagram, borrowing the caption “are you listening?” causing many of his fans to comment in disgust.
