What are you afraid of?
I found a neat article the other day that talks about phobia's of the Stars!
Johnny Depp, Orlando Bloom and Nicole Kidman, to name a few, tell us what they are most afraid of.
What are you all afraid of? *twirls in vampire cape and laughs an evil laugh*
Johnny Depp has Coulophobia: A fear of clowns. Johnny told The Courier Mail, “I guess I am afraid of them because it’s impossible — thanks to their painted-on smiles, to distinguish if they are happy or if they’re about to bite your face off.”
Daniel Radcliffe also has a great fear of clowns.
Scuttlebutt: I honestly cannot understand the clown fear. I think its pretty funny being afraid of clowns. On the other hand, I haven't read or seen the Stephen King book/movie. *grins* So that could be the reason huh?
Prattle: You HAVE to read that book!! Maybe I'll bring it to you.. *shivers* I agree with Johnny, you never know what they are thinking. Three words - John Wayne Gacy. *goes to turn on all the lights in the house* Great...not sleeping tonight!
Carmen Electra has a fear of water. “I get terrified anywhere near it and have a panic attack,” she confessed to Sky One Magazine.
Scuttlebutt: A general fear of water is really strange. Makes you think if she or somebody close to her drowned or nearly did.
Prattle: If I'm in deep water, where I can't see the bottom, I start to freak out. If I'm on a boat that's different. But if I'm in the water and can't see what is under me I can't stay in for very long. I guess I'm afraid of the "bigger" fish! *grins*
Jennifer Aniston developed a fear of flying after being caught in an electrical storm on a flight from Toronto to New York City.
Scuttlebutt: I can relate to that one. Although I honestly am not afraid of flying.
Prattle: When I take off and land, my blood pressure goes up. *nods head*
Orlando Bloom... is afraid of pigs!
Scuttlebutt: Bwahahahaha!! *rolls on floor holding my belly* Oh dear God. That is truly unbelievable!! How is that possible? Oh!! Hahaha! Imagine me and my Sisters dressed as the 3 little piggies, visiting Orlando!
Prattle: Well that's new.. *grins* I've heard they can be quite mean in the pen, and they bite!
Matthew McConaughey gets all kinds of stressed out around revolving doors.
Scuttlebutt: He certainly got stuck or hit by one when he was little!
Prattle: I have to try not to think about getting stuck in one when I'm in a revolving door.
Justin Timberlake doesn’t confine his fears to just one thing. He lists sharks, spiders and snakes amongst the things he’d never want to encounter.
Scuttlebutt: I think I can relate to that one too.
Prattle: Sharks (the "bigger" fish) and snakes give me the willies too. I'll watch them all day long at the zoo or on National Geographic or the Discovery Channel. Do NOT want to come across them up close and personal!
Sarah Michelle Gellar is extremely afraid of graveyards. According to people who worked with her on Buffy the Vampire Slayer, fake graveyard sets had to be built because she refused to film in graveyards.
Scuttlebutt: Now this one is funny. *giggles* How can you play a fearless Vampire Slayer while being afraid of graveyards? And there is another question. How did the producers chose her to play Buffy after realizing that? I mean, wouldn't it be much cheaper to film in real graveyards then build sets?
Prattle: When I was little my best friend lived beside a graveyard. I hated sleeping over, I always thought a ghost was going to get me or follow me home! Yes I think that building a graveyard set would be safer than going onto a real one, because if the fearless Slayer fell wrong on marble or, heaven forbid Zander or SPIKE! Oh my reasons could go on and on..
Scuttlebutt: *points to graveyard pic* To be honest... I wouldn't go in there either... *shakes head*
Prattle: *whispers and hides behind you* me either
With a fear that makes Orlando’s seem more reasonable, one of the greatest actresses of our time, Nicole Kidman, is terrified of butterflies. “Sometimes when I would come home from school the biggest butterfly or moth you’d ever seen would be just sitting on our front gate. I would climb over the fence or crawl around to the side of the house – anything to avoid having to go through the front gate.”
Scuttlebutt: Watch out!! The gigantic butterfly is coming to swallow you!!!!! Bwahahaha! Oh, I know of a Greek singer who is afraid of birds!!! If anything is flying around her actually, she gets a panic attack! Now on a serious note... this is really bad. Imagine panicking because of a mosquito or a fly... Hmmm...
Prattle: Well now that's just silly! Butterflies...
Scuttlebutt: Oh hey! Lookie here! I've got some flying pigs! we could make both Nicole and Orlando run! *evil laugh*
Scuttlebutt: My fears... hummm... I am very afraid of deep dark waters!! If you wanna kill me, you can just throw me in there. I am sure I'll die of a heart attack. I think that "Jaws" has a lot to do with it. I am afraid not being able to see whats beneath me (in the water that is... *grins*).
Oh, and I could also say that I am afraid of cockroaches! Or should I call it more like a disgust? Hmm... I don't know. In the end I do kill them but I am at the verge of puking or screaming. Oh, sometimes I scream while I kill them. *smirks* Eww... *shivers* I hate hate hate them! *spits*
Prattle: I am pretty much afraid of everything. Except butterflies. I'm more afraid of the "what if" scenario especially when it applies to my kids, like when we go to the circus I'm afraid the tigers are going to get loose or I'm going to lose the kids either figuratively or literally. *sighs* I'm a "Nervous Nelly". And I'm afraid of clowns.
