Cher: 25 Things You Don't Know About Me

Cher dished out 25 intriguing facts about herself - that the general public will not know - to 'Us Weekly' (although die-hards will know quite a few):

1. Stephen Hawking invited me to lunch one day and we got into a heated discussion with his students about history vs. math. Stephen said, "Cher, when time travel is perfected, history will be obsolete."

2.Meryl Streep and I saved a girl from a large mugger in New York City

3. The day I move out of my home in Holmby Hills, I found a room I never knew existed.

4. There was a time I couldn't afford to pay my gardener for six months.

5. Jack Nicholson helped me through a panic attack just before the famous lunch scene in The Witches of Eastwick. I also have a painting Jack did for me. I's one of my most treasured birthday gifts.

6. I have a collection of elephants.

7. I once crashed in a small plane during a snowstorm.

8. I think David Letterman is in love with me.

9. I want to build a Balinese-style home.

10. I had two imaginary friends when I was little. They were both lumberjacks.

11. I love to play Wii Tennis. I'm also a big football fan. Deacon Jones of the then-L.A. Rams taught me all I know about the game.

12. I am passionate about palm trees. They make me deliriously happy.

13. My mother still tells me what to do and I still don't listen.

14. One time I threw a dart at a map to decide where I would vacation.

15. I am famous among my friends for my chicken bolognese. I even use my own Diva Pasta labels when I give out jars for Christmas.

16. I have watched the 1958 film Auntie Mame, with Rosaliond Russell, at least 100 times. I would love to play that part in a remake.

17. My cat is named Mr. Big. I first found him underneath one of our tour trucks in Detroit.

18. I love to bead! I make 5-inch-long earrings for all of my friends.

19. My first car was an old red MG convertible.

20. Andy Warhol once showed up uninvited at one of my house parties. Best crasher I ever had.

21. I wear Malibu Cowboy boots (Likes Uggs, only cooler) whether it's summer, winter, spring or fall.

22. I have driven a taxi through New York city at 4AM.

23. I love to read and have taught several young people to read. One of my favorite books is God Against the Gods: The History of the War Between Monotheism and Polytheism by Jonatan Kirsch.

24. I once cried when I lost $100

25. The night I won my Oscar, you could have spotted me running down the Shrine Auditorium with my dress sky-high. I was late again, of course!

How many out of the 25 did you already know? Which ones out of the 25 surprised you the most?

Buy Cher's new album 'Closer To The Truth' from Amazon.


  1. MAME is one role I have always hoped to see Cher in. They wanted to re-make MAME the musical with Cher as Mame. The music from Mame is gorgeous and it would suit Cher so well!

  2. that was on the works for long time,they wanted her since they found her voice ideal, modern, i forgot what happened with that project

  3. I love that she really uses her own Diva Pasta label. Thats cute somehow and ironic at the same time. She's cool. I am a huge fan but didn't know about 18 or 20 things. I like what Hawking said to her, being a historian myself. And i would love to hear the story behind her driving a car in NYC in the middle of the night.

  4. i wonder if driving a taxi at 4am was when she filmed MOONSTRUCK?
