We have seen celebrities playing superheroes in many films but do you know these celebs have weird phobias too. Here we bring you the list of Ten Celebrities and their weird phobias. Take a look:
Kill Bill star Uma Thurman had to face her biggest fear when she was stuck in a coffin while filming the movie. Thurman is 'claustrophobic' which means she's afraid of confined spaces. While promoting the film, Thurman told the Daily Mail that Quentin Tarantino didn't care about her claustrophobia and stuck her in a coffin, throwing dirt on top of it. She called it 'just another day at the office.'
A lot of actors suffer from 'aquaphobia,' the fear of water. Will Smith, Carmen Electra, Snoop Dog, and lots of other celebrities have admitted to the fear, mostly because, like Mendes, they can not swim. But for some reason, that didn't stop her from buying a huge house with a swimming pool she never uses back in 2011.
Sure, she laughed at Matt Damon's fear of snakes, but Scarlett Johansson has her own fear: birds. Known as 'ornithophobia,' Johansson has said that there's 'something about wings and beaks and the flapping. I'm terrified of them.' She also added that her uncle has the same fear, so perhaps it's genetic?
It sounds like a joke, but on The Ellen Show, singer Taylor Swift discussed her crippling fear of sea urchins. Though there is no specific word for that fear, it terrifies her enough to not even go into the water. Swift also admitted to suffering from a fear of getting arrested, more specifically for being 'framed.'
Jennifer Love Hewitt
Jennifer Love Hewitt has claimed to be afraid of elevators, which is actually one of the more common fears in society. She apparently will not go into an elevator if there are more than five people inside. Hewitt also is afraid of sharks, called 'selachophobia.'
It's called 'lepidoterophobia,' and Nicole Kidman says she has it. The actress once said in an interview that butterflies give her anxiety. 'There is something eerie about them. Something weird,' the actress reportedly said. Who the hell hates butterflies?
On an episode of The Tonight Show, Fox told host Jimmy Fallon that she hates and fears dry paper. The beauty confessed that when she reads scripts, she keeps a cup of water by her side so that she can dip her fingers in before turning the page.
Ricci has 'botanophobia' which is the fear of indoor houseplants. Ricci admitted to the New York Daily News that indoor houseplants disturb her, as do swimming pools ('natatiophobia'), and that touching a dirty houseplant is like torture.
It's true. Perry claims she has 'nyctophobia,' the fear of darkness. In an interview in 2010, Perry admitted she has to sleep with the lights on because she thinks 'a lot of evil things go on in the dark.'
In an interview, The Hunger Games star Jennifer Lawrence admitted to a plethora of fears including death, family, and ghosts. Lawrence also claimed she has 'arachnophobia,' the common fear of spiders. Not so weird, right? In the same interview, she admitted to being afraid of annoying people.
