In the movie, “As Good as It Gets” Jack Nicholson plays a character with an extreme case of OCD. He is especially phobic about germs. Jack Nicolson’s character also had a wonderful career as an author on his hands and managed to work around his condition.

Howie Mandel

In 2009, Howie Mandel went public with the fact that he has obsessive-compulsive disorder (pictured above). The host of the Deal or No Deal TV game show has stated that germs are one of his obsessions, which is why he prefers not to be touched (or he will fist bump instead of shaking hands). Mandel also appeared on the TV show Dog Whisperer with his small canine Little Lola which he doesn’t like to touch because of his OCD issues.

Howard Stern knows the feeling. He states in his book Miss America that he can’t turn on the car radio without tapping the dial a certain number of times. He says in college that he set up many rituals that helped to distract him from fear.
