American Idol's Simon Cowell has a new strange hobby. He likes to spy on his neighbors.The music king installed a telescope in the kitchen of his Los Angeles mansion after watching the 1979 movie 10, in which actor Dudley Moore’s character snoops on a nearby resident.He says, "I saw that Dudley Moore film and it was great. Afterwards, I got a telescope installed in my kitchen so I can spy on people. I look out over the Hollywood Hills into my neighbors’ gardens. It’s an amazing view."It isn’t powerful enough to see into their homes, so you can’t see them in the shower, but you can see into their gardens. It’s great fun. I just like to keep an eye on what is happening."
