Who doesn’t like some fast food from time to time? All that salty, greasy crunch does wonders for the soul and can even help you lose weight if you play your cards right. And although it may seem like every celebrity only eats greens and chef-prepared meals, they enjoy a good takeout as much as the next person.
Like everyone, they hold some food establishments closer to their hearts than others, so I’ve compiled a list of celebs and their favorite fast food treats. Have a look at their indulgences, and see if your stars are aligned (pun intended).
1. Selena Gomez
In a hilarious Instagram post from 2016, Gomez eats a cheeseburger from McDonald’s while dead-panning to the camera that she also had a Happy Meal the week before. The singer also had Jack in the Box tacos instead of a birthday cake in 2013. If that isn’t partner goals, I don’t know what is.
2. Anna Kendrick
Back in 2012, Kendrick professed a new found love for a specific item from the Taco Bell menu. “Just tried Taco Bell’s Doritos taco, I can see why they sold 100 million of these already. This is no joke,” she tweeted. On an appearance on Conan the same year, she said: “It’s a dirty thing that I love Taco Bell so much.”
“I cannot, cannot eat Taco Bell before midnight. It’s like a reverse ‘Gremlins’ thing. It has to be under the cover of darkness in my car. I drive out of my way for the one with the drive-thru … and I’ll just eat it in my car.” Look out for her in the late hours.
3. Chrissy Teigen
It’s a bold move to live in LA and prefer Shake Shack over In-N-Out Burger, but then again, Teigen is a bold person. She had her first ever Shackburger in 2011, and fell for it hard. Fast forward five years and she’s tweeting at the Shake Shack account, asking them when their West Hollywood location would open. It was in 2017 when she said in an interview: “I’m gonna go ahead and say Shake Shack over In-N-Out.”
In 2013, Queen Bey showed us that even she craves In-N-Out, only she has champagne as her drink. She posted a picture on Instagram revealing her order of a classic cheeseburger, fries, and drink in a champagne flute.
5. Mindy Kaling
Mindy Kaling loves McDonald’s, so much so that she even served Happy Meals and Shamrock Shakes to her guests at her wrap party for “The Mindy Project” in 2015. She posted on Instagram: “on the way out of the wrap party @mcdonalds outfitted every guest with happy meals and shamrock shakes. Best goodie bag in history.”
6. Kim Kardashian
Kim Kardashian knows just what she wants when she’s ordering fast food. At McDonald’s, she always gets an order of small fries. On top of that, she says: “Then I usually order chicken nuggets and dip them in honey, or I’ll get a cheeseburger and chicken nuggets and eat half of each!” At KFC, Kim orders extra-crispy chicken wings and a biscuit with honey, and at In-N-Out, she orders a plain cheeseburger with “cheese fries and a vanilla shake”.
7. Shay Mitchell
The former Pretty Little Liars starlet has made her affinity for pepperoni pizza abundantly clear over the years. In 2016, she Instagrammed a shot of a Domino’s pepperoni pizza shaped like a heart with the caption: “Yes please…” and she captioned another shot eating pizza with the dictionary definition of “love”. Someone after my own heart.
It’s always nice to be reminded that celebrities are people just like you and I. I love the idea of all of them sitting by their windows waiting for their delivery to arrive. What would be even cooler would be to find out that they eat their takeout in bed watching reruns of Friends.
