Tom Odell doesn't have any mirrors in his house because he doesn't want to be vain about his appearance
Tom Odell doesn't have any mirrors in his house.
The 26-year-old singer admits his job encourages vanity, so he has removed the temptation of worrying about his looks and feeling self-conscious when he's trying to relax at home.
He said: "There is a certain amount of vanity that comes with this job, which isn't an appealing trait.
"You can find yourself inching over to that side occasionally because you see yourself in shoots and videos.
"I have got rid of all the mirrors in the house - when I come home I don't want to be self-conscious."
And when he is relaxing at home, the 'Another Love' hitmaker confessed to having an unusual hobby - watching YouTube videos of planes taking off.
He admitted: "I'm a bit of an aviation anorak.
"My dad was a pilot and I know a lot about planes.
"Sometimes I look at videos of them on YouTube taking off in heavy winds. I should never have admitted this."
When it comes to dating, Tom never singles out a single physical feature that he finds attractive but admits he is unsure exactly what it is that draws him to someone.
He told Britain's Cosmopolitan magazine: "I've never said that someone has great hair or a lovely a**e.
"It's like a symphony... it's the violins, the piano, the percussion, and when they all comes together, it's attractive even though you don't know why."
