* ''Film/AsGoodAsItGets'' plays this for drama, with JackNicholson's character showing several common OCD fixations, like being unable to walk on the lines between paving stones and only using disposable forks, even in restaurants. And those are the pedestrian quirks. The really bad stuff is needing to have several ''dozen'' pre-packaged soap bars to wash his hands with, because he'll only use one for a few seconds before throwing it away. A new soap bar every trip to the bathroom? Sure, cuts down on germ exposure. ''Three or four'' every time you wash your hands? Holy crap.

* Marc Summers, the host of ''[[Series/DoubleDare1986 Double Dare]]'' and ''What Would You Do?'' has OCD. These were two of the messiest and most disorganized games ever to hit TV. He mentions that going to work every day was a battle and he was actually happy when both shows went off the air. This has the effect of making him a major BadAss amongst fans. You can now see him as the host of ''Unwrapped'' on the Creator/FoodNetwork. Pay attention to the table where the various foods he's talking about are laid out. Everything is ordered and laid out very specifically.

* LeonardoDiCaprio has it as well. He steadfastly fights it at every turn, claiming that he refuses to step through doorways multiple times or step on every patch of chewing gum on the pavement that he sees to stop it taking over his life. [[DudeNotFunny Must be an absolute]] [[SarcasmMode killer when he's]] [[YouBastard learning his lines]]...\\

He also played the above-mentioned Howard Hughes in ''Film/TheAviator'', and the Stunt-coordinator for ''Film/{{Inception}}'' mentioned in the making-of how he loved to work with Leonardo since he could create the most death-defying stunts with only a square-foot of safe area on the set, trusting Leonardo with a 100% certainty that he would hit that foot on cue every time.

Added DiffLines:

* Creator/JoanCrawford was a sufferer too. She said that she'd never accept cigarettes from another person's packet and would clean the door handles in her house after visitors left. Allegedly, when a plumber worked in her bathroom and used her toilet, she had the pipes re-replaced.

* Amanda from ''WesternAnimation/MiloMurphysLaw'' is a ScheduleFanatic who always wants everything to be as organized and predictable as possible. [[ThePollyanna Milo]] has [[OppositesAttract a crush]] on her, but he's BornUnlucky and TheJinx, so Amanda's need for order makes her even more nervous around him than most people.

** Rarity has difficulty tearing herself away from fixing a messy bookcase despite the presence of a much bigger problem, namely the tree that crashed into Twilight's house (which happen to cause said messy bookcase). See also the bird's nest bit in "Winter Wrap-Up". Also, when she is [[spoiler:temporarily given Rainbow Dash's cutie mark]] in "[[Recap/MyLittlePonyFriendshipIsMagicS3E13MagicalMysteryCure Magical Mystery Cure]]", she keeps the clouds organized in a checkerboard-like formation. And in the BadFuture of Sweetie Belle's NightmareSequence in [[Recap/MyLittlePonyFriendshipIsMagicS4E20ForWhomTheSweetieBelleToils For Whom The Sweetie Belle Toils]], she ends up spending the rest of her life as a mad recluse, obsessively checking and rechecking her work for mistakes.
