10 Celebrity Ghost Encounters

Who would have thought it? Celebrities are just like us after all! At least in the sense that they too are subject to things going bump in the night.

There's nothing like hearing it out of the mouth of your favourite celeb, so here are the 10 celebrities that have gone on the record with their own spooky tales.

1. Matthew McConaughey

 Matthew McConaughey's story is one of the most entertaining, largely because it involves him being naked. When the actor first moved into his home, he noticed strange sounds. Expecting an intruder, he leaped out of bed, naked and wielding a baseball bat. It was only later that he realised it was a ghost, named Madame Blue. The pair have since made peace with each other, something he puts down to his constant nudity.

2. Alyson Hannigan

Alyson Hannigan's experience came in 2003, when she reported seeing a ghost in the house she shared with her husband and children. Not only has this happened more than once, but her friend also spotted him following them out of her house.

3. Anna Nicole Smith

Make of this what you will, but Anna Nicole Smith reported regularly having sex with a ghost. At first she thought it was her boyfriend, but she soon realised this wasn't the case.

4. Taylor Momsen

Momsen's experience came after the death of an elderly neighbour when she was younger. She went it to the neighbour's house and had a conversation with her, taking a few photos as evidence of the ghost's presence.

5. Patrick Stewart

Rumours of haunted theatres are rife, so it may come as little surprise that Patrick Stewart has described seeing a ghost during a performance at the Haymarket Theatre in London. Stewart froze momentarily and when later asked why, he explained he'd seen a ghost onstage.

6. Keanu Reeves

Keanu's encounter happened when he was five with his sister in the house they used to live in. The pair saw a figure in a white, double-breasted suit, but the disembodied figure was missing both his legs.

7. Miley Cyrus

Miley has described experiencing a ghostly presence when renting an apartment in London. She reportedly saw a small boy sitting in the sink of her bathroom, noticing his small swinging feet when she was in the shower.

8. Dan Ackroyd

Fittingly, the former Ghostbuster also has a supernatural story to tell, with numerous sightings of his close friend and former co-star, John Belushi at Studio 8H. Sadly, he seems to think the area has become a limbo for the legendary performer.

9. Jessica Alba

Jessica Alba's experience was more violent, as she claims a ghost attacked her as a teenager, while lying in bed. She was unable to move, speak or scream, but felt an undeniable pressure trapping her in place.

10. Sting

Sting's house appears to be haunted by a poltergeist. He has reported moving objects and, more frighteningly, a razor blade flying through the air and embedding itself in the wall.
