Hugh Jackman


In order to maintain his incredibly sculpted body, Hugh Jackman sticks to a pretty strict diet...except on his birthday!

The actor turned 48 on Wednesday and celebrated with a basket full of carbs to ring in the special day. "Birthday breakfast calories don't count!!!" he tweeted a photo holding what appeared to be a bunch of muffins and donuts. "I read that somewhere so ... it must be true!"

We definitely agree, and he's certainly not alone. Some celebs cheat on their diets even when it's not their birthday. Check out 9 stars who aren't afraid to indulge a little:

Dwayne "The Rock" Johnson: The former wrestler has one of the most fit bodies in Hollywood, but that doesn't stop him from enjoying some of his favorite foods...including pancakes!

Johnson posted this photo with the caption, "Hell, I thought every day was National Pancake Day... #Dominator #UncleJemima."

Kourtney and Khloe Kardashian: The sisters keep us informed of all their crazy workouts on Snapchat, but when it comes to taking a day off and relaxing, they're enjoying some of their favorite grub: fried chicken!

Tom Brady and Gisele Bündchen: You know what they say, a couple who stays fit together...also cheats together?

The football star and his supermodel wife were spotted enjoying french fries and sandwiches while on vacation in Italy earlier this month. However, they usually stick to a very strict diet of 80 percent all-organic vegetables and whole grains and 20 percent lean meats.

Jessica Biel: The actress is the first to admit that dieting for a movie role is absolutely zero fun. In fact, on the Graham Norton Show a few years ago, she admitted, "It's the hardest experience, it really is, 'cause you're eating a lot of boring stuff: chicken breasts and vegetables all the time. But it's cakes and pastas and breads and sandwiches and croissants (you crave) all the time."

She continued, "[So] you don't crack just slightly, you crack bad. I was with my girlfriends, we were out in New York City for a night, it was the cheat day. I saw Dunkin' Donuts...We ran in, I got 24 donuts. We went to a pizza joint, and we got two large pizzas. I sat in the car and I put as much bread and dough in my mouth as I could possibly manage. It was the best moment."

Beyoncé: From going vegan to trying the master cleanse, Queen Bey is often dabbled with different diets to maintain her body. However, you better believe she also loves a good cheat meal.

"I do have to work out and watch what I eat," she told ELLE magazine in 2010. "I'm not someone who can go crazy. I'll usually have cereal for breakfast and a salad for lunch and a light dinner, and then on Sundays I'll allow myself to have whatever I want."

Sofia Vergara: Though she hates it, the Modern Family star does have to watch what she eats throughout the week. Come the weekend, however, she indulges.

"My hobby is to go out to dinner to different places. I try to eat healthy during the day so that when I go to dinner I can kind of eat whatever I want. I don't go too crazy during the week," she told the New York Times. "But on the weekends, I completely order whatever I want."
