In honor of St. Patrick’s Day, we’ve rounded up 15 celebrities who have a good luck charm. From Taylor Swift to Patrick Dempsey to Heidi Klum, you might be shocked at some of the objects they adore. Scroll through the gallery below to see them all.
The Dublin native is very superstitious. The handsome hunk revealed that he always wears the same underwear whenever he starts to film a movie. “They’re a very special pair of boxer shorts that my brother gave to me a while ago, covered with all these shamrocks, and the waistband says, ‘The luck of the Irish,'” he revealed in an interview. “They’re my lucky charm, my lucky shorts. The only problem is, they’re getting a bit old now, but I can never part with those.”
The former Spice Girl brings something special with her at all times. “I like to surround myself with positive energy, and so often have a little collection of crystals in my handbag,” she told Elle magazine. It’s been reported that the clothing designer even passes them around before a fashion show for good luck.
The Game of Thrones star carries around a rather useful object with him. “I’ve got a lucky pen — it’s one I’ve had since I was a kid, and I carry it everywhere,” he told Conde Nast Traveler. “And I haven’t lost it yet, I’ve lost everything else.”
The pop princess embraces a controversial number. “The significance of the number 13 on my hand … I paint this on my hand before every show because 13 is my lucky number for a lot of reasons,” she told MTV in 2009. “It’s really weird. I was born on the 13th. I turned 13 on Friday the 13th. My first album went gold in 13 weeks. My first number one song had a 13-second intro. Every time I’ve won an award I’ve been seated in either the 13th seat, the 13th row, the 13th section or row M, which is the 13th letter.”
The rocker often wears four teeth on a string around his neck. “I wear it for good luck,” he explained. The Aerosmith frontman caught a raccoon as a boy, so he made the animal’s chompers into a necklace.
After the Pretty Little Liars starlet visited Ireland, she couldn’t help but pick up a souvenir. “My new good luck charm — four leaf clover pendant. #ireland,” she captioned a photo of herself wearing the necklace. The brunette beauty’s father is of Scottish and Irish descent, so we imagine it’s very sentimental.
The lucky charm that the U.K. native doesn’t leave home without? “Four-inch platforms give you great height and make your legs look unbelievably long,” she told the Daily Telegraph. “I used only to be able to get them in stripper shops, but now you can buy them everywhere — although, unfortunately, that means everyone else has discovered the trick too.”
How did the Texas native land the role of Blair Waldorf on Gossip Girl? One word: shoes. “I’d moved back to New York, I was living in a third floor walk-up in the West Village, and I had no clothes because my luggage had been lost on the flight from L.A.,” she told Grazia. “I saw this pair of red leopard-print Marc Jacobs shoes, turned to my mom and said, ‘If I buy them I can’t pay rent.’ Mom just said, ‘Rent can wait.’ As I bought them, I imagined that these would be the shoes that would win me the part. They did.”
Aw! The Black Swan actress gushed that she has two very special people in her world: her children. “I think they’re good lucky charms in life,” she told Entertainment Tonight. “They’re the best things. The main miracles.”
The blonde beauty explained that she has a sweet meaning behind her lucky item. “I have a little dragonfly pin that my grandmother gave me that I actually wore on my wedding dress when I got married,” she told Racked. “It’s one of my most prized possessions.”
Talk about strange! The model confirmed that she carries around a bag of baby teeth with her. “Well, I don’t, like, advertise it,” she told Entertainment Weekly. “No, I did show somebody once and it fell under the seat and the flight attendant came over and he’s like, ‘Can I help you?’ and I was like, ‘Yeah, I’m just looking for my teeth.’ And he’s like, ‘Oh.’ I had to find it — it’s not good luck if I leave a tooth on a plane.”
The blonde bombshell wears a Jack Vartanian horseshoe necklace so that her luck doesn’t run out. However, she isn’t irrational. “I know on wood all day long … constantly,” she told Cosmopolitan. “But I’ve also flown on Friday the 13th in a storm with a black cat on my lap, so I’m not that superstitious.”
