Now celebrities outside moviedom also do quirky things. Facebook CEO Mark Zuckerberg has a peculiar habit which many would find really weird: he has his underarms blow-dried before a key conference or meet – to get rid of the sweat! According to "Facebook: the Inside Story," an upcoming book written by Wired's Steven Levy, Zuckerberg is apparently so obsessed with his public appearance that he has a dedicated staff that "blow- dry his armpits" before he makes an appearance on stage to address the audience.
"A communications exec is shown blow-drying the CEO's armpits before speaking appearances to eliminate anxiety sweat," claimed the book.
