You’d think with all that fame and fortune, nothing would faze today’s celebrities. But this is just not true. While they’re human like the rest of us, afraid of such things as getting sick or dying, some celebrities have some really weird phobias that are unlike any other. So check out these eight strange celeb phobias. You’ll never look at your favorite stars the same way again.
You’d think after her marriage to Tom Cruise, she’d have a life long fear of him. But that’s not her fear. No, this Hollywood starlet can’t stand the sight of butterflies. That’s right, this beauty is afraid of one of nature’s most beautiful bugs.
For someone who’s played a pirate, a guy with scissors for hands, and started his acting career playing along side perhaps the scariest character of all – Freddy Krueger – you’d think nothing would scare Mr. Depp. Alas, Johnny is terrified of clowns. Yes, those things that are invited to kids’ birthday parties scare the crap out of Johnny Depp.
I can’t believe this one myself. Carmen Electra is not afraid to marry freak show Dennis Rodman, but is terrified of water. Didn’t she star in Baywatch as a lifeguard? Gee, I hope she isn’t afraid of baths and showers too.
If you’re thinking of having Orlando Bloom over for dinner, do not – I repeat – do not serve bacon. Orlando is terrified of pigs. Oink oink, you pig hater.
Jennifer Love Hewitt
Want to know how Jennifer Love Hewitt stays in such great shape? Simple, she always takes the stairs. Why? Because she’s deathly afraid of elevators.
So guess what one of Hollywood’s hottest hunks is afraid to go through … a revolving door. Yup, Mr. McConaughey will go through a regular door and a sliding door, but no doors that revolve. Maybe he jammed his finger in one once. Who knows?
Ever seen a scene with Matt Damon interacting with a snake? Nope. And you never will, because he’s deathly afraid of them. In fact, once he was shooting a scene with snakes just in the area, and he broke out into a terrible sweat.
Guess who sleeps with the lights on? Yup, the world’s worst actor, Keanu Reeves. Maybe it’s because when the lights are turned off, he’s reminded of all his dark, terrible roles he’s played over the years.
