Long before her days riding in the Ecto-1, Ghostbusters star Melissa McCarthy had her own ghoulish encounter.
“I do believe in ghosts,” she told Us Weekly. “I lived in a house in Boulder, Colorado, that every time you walked up there, everyone who walked up there said, ‘Oh, I don’t like this.’ There was just a presence.”
“Why does it keep spelling out ‘Melissa’ in blood?” she joked.
This Matrix star had an otherworldly experience while living in New Jersey. “I remember just staring at this suit, which had no body or legs in it as it came into the room before disappearing,” he said in an interview per Digital Spy. “I just couldn’t get back to sleep afterwards, and I still see the figure in my dreams and nightmares.”
A ghost encounter didn’t make this 28-year-old pop star “Die Young,” In fact, she told Conan O’Brien she and the ghost went “to the bone zone” when the spirit caressed her in her home. “I don’t know his name, but … it was a sexy time.”
The 45-year-old told The Sun that he met a poltergeist named Madame Blue when he moved into his Hollywood digs.
“She has no qualms with me. We get along just fine,” he said, per Digital Spy. “She’s a cool ghost. Maybe me being nude all the time is why we get along!” (Or maybe it’s a Future Matthew McConaughey — are we right, Interstellar fans?)
This actress and entrepreneur was Honest-ly freaked by a paranormal experience in her teen years. “I felt this pressure, and I couldn’t get up, I couldn’t scream, I couldn’t talk, I couldn’t do anything,” she said in an interview, per Digital Spy. “Something definitely took the covers off me, and I definitely couldn’t get off the bed, and then once I did, I screamed, ran to my parents’ room, and I don’t think I spent many nights in that house ever again.”
After battling so many Hellmouth demons on Buffy, this actress told the San Francisco Chronicle in 2003 about the ghost in her own house: “[A visiting friend] said, ‘I don’t mean to alarm you, but I just saw a man follow us out of the house.’ And I said, ‘Well, at least he’s gentlemanly.’”
When an X-Files fan on Reddit asked this star if she had experienced any unexplained phenomena herself, she responded, “I’ve definitely felt other spirits. I’m quite sensitive to it … But it’s not something you can really talk about with too many people, especially not me.”
This pint-sized pop star had a big “Problem” when she and a friend visited a notorious graveyard in Kansas City.
“I felt this sick, overwhelming feeling of negativity over the whole car, and we smelled sulfur, which is the sign of a demon,” she told Complex. “I was like, ‘This is scary, let’s leave.’ I rolled down the window before we left and said, ‘We apologize. We didn’t mean to disrupt your peace.’ Then I took a picture and there are three super distinct faces in the picture — they’re faces of textbook demons.”
