Keira Knightley: When people stop in front of you on the street, because they trip you up.

Mark Ruffalo: People who flaunt their money.

Kelly Clarkson: If I see someone’s clothing tag hanging out, I freak out. Even if I don’t know the person, I’ll go up and fix it.

Jay Leno: Talk show guests that have nothing to say.

Jamie Kennedy: Baja Fresh gives you a side of salsa, and they give you a side of sour cream. But they don’t give you a side of guacamole – you have to pay for it. What’s up with that, Baja Fresh? Cheap asses.

Seann William Scott: Girls who use the line, “I see you all the time at the gym.”

George Lopez: When someone eats anything off of my plate, it drives me crazy.

Frankie Muniz: People driving slowly on the freeway in L.A. I want to get a motorcycle so I can go through the middle.

Adam Mesh (Average Joe): Construction outside your apartment window is the worst.

Tim McGraw: Waiting for anything, like lines or traffic. Pamela Anderson: Silly interviews.

Ja Rule: Women with bad feet. It’s an immediate turnoff.

Noah Wyle: The 405 (freeway in Los Angeles).

Tyrese: I hate when people can’t remember what it feels like to be inconvenienced. They get rich and don’t remember where they came from.

Randy Jackson: I can’t stand bad singing. I just tune out.

Seth Green: Being lied to always annoys me.

Omar Epps: My pet peeve is when someone next to you has something in their hair, and you want to pick it out, but they’re strangers and you don’t want to touch them.

Steve Buscemi: I hate Hummers. They are too big. I try to stay out of their way.

Carson Kressley: The words “pet” and “peeve.” Aren’t they just irritating-sounding in their own right? “Pet peeve” – it makes my skin crawl.

Ethan Zohn: When people talk really loud for no reason, or when people take up the whole sidewalk and you can’t get by them.

Eva Mendes: When people chew with their mouth open, it kills me.

Joan Rivers: People who talk on their cell phones and think I want to hear their conversation.
