What books do Russian and Hollywood celebrities read?

In our usual view, the life of a celebrity consists only of filming, presentations and glamorous parties. Meanwhile, the world of bohemia does not capture everyone. Most of the stars are ordinary people who have their own hobbies in their free time. For example, Michelle Pfeiffer considers a set of building materials to be the best gift for himself, Keanu Reeves is fond of motorcycles, Quentin Tarantino is not averse to playing old board games, but the intellectual Sharon Stone, known throughout Hollywood, loves to read books. After work, Tom Hanks is helped to relax and distract himself from setting up the pre-war typewriters he collects.

But Megan Fox loves to dive into the magical world created by the writer Tolkien. Of course, ordinary people do not have much money to get involved, for example, collecting rare comics, like Nicolas Cage. Therefore, today we want to invite you to find out about the book preferences of celebrities and compare how much we are similar to them in this.
