Obsessive compulsive disorder is when you have to do something in a certain way no matter what. An irrational fear might be behind it or some other reason that your brain has concocted up but when you have OCD, you can’t help but do certain things in certain ways. Many people have OCD and manage to hide it pretty well from others. Even celebrities have OCD. Here are 12 famous celebrities who are probably nuts.
