Everyone is afraid of something, whether it be a classic phobia like spiders or death, or a more peculiar one like clowns or the sound of ripping paper towel at a part that isn’t perforated. *shivers* And since basically everyone has something that they just can’t deal with, here are some the of weirdest celebrity phobias — some of which we didn’t even know were actual phobias!
Kendall Jenner – tiny holes
Kendall Jenner is a Trypophobic, meaning she’s terrified of tiny holes. She’s said that honeycombs, pancakes, and lotus heads are the worst tiny-hole containing objects she’s come across. She explained on her blog, “It sounds ridiculous but so many people actually have it! I can’t even look at little holes — it gives me the worst anxiety. Who knows what’s in there???” Um, in a pancake? I think just more pancake is in pancakes.
Cameron Diaz – door knobs
Cameron Diaz has an actual fear of door knobs, and reportedly refuses to touch them. How she’s managed to get this far in life with this phobia, we have no idea, but it’s actually kind of impressive.
Matthew McConaughey – revolving doors
Matthew McConaughey is afraid of the one of the highlights of all our childhoods — revolving doors. And it’s not just walking through them that he can’t stand. McConaughey once said he “gets anxious just being near them”. Hopefully he’ll go into more detail/wax poetic about his fear in a Lincoln car commercial soon, because that would be hilarious.
Billy Bob Thornton – antique furniture
Poor Billy Bob will probably never watch an episode of Downton Abbey thanks to his fear of antique furniture. “Maybe it’s a past life thing and I got beat to death with an old chair. But I’m totally serious. I can’t eat around antiques.” And since he once wore vial of Angelina Jolie’s blood around his neck, a fear of old chairs is actually not that weird for Billy Bob.
Pamela Anderson – mirrors
Pamela Anderson was considered one of the most beautiful women on television during her days on Baywatch, but she’ll never get to see herself in all her glory because she’s terrified of mirrors and refuses to watch herself on TV.
Oprah – chewing gum
Oprah has many, many favorite things, but one thing her audiences will never get from her as a Christmas present is chewing gum. In fact, Oprah forbade anyone from bringing chewing gum into the building where Oprah was filmed.
Kyra Sedgwick – talking food
Sausage Party trailers must have been Kyra Sedgwick’s greatest nightmare in 2016, because according to her husband Kevin Bacon, Kyra has a fear of talking food. He even said the fear is so great that if a commercial comes on with talking food, she immediately has to leave the room.
