Famous People Who Believe In Ghosts

These 5 Famous Actors Have Run Into Paranormal Activity In Real Life

Even the rich and famous can be haunted!


Ever since I was a little girl, I've been obsessed with the paranormal. If you ask my mom, she'll tell you that my go-to movie pick is anything with ghosts- even though I spend most of my time watching them through a blanket or snuggled up with a pillow. Nevertheless, I spend most of my weekend nights watching the newest (or oldest) scary films.

But if you're somebody who doesn't get scared by movies (after all, they're only movies), then here's something that will really freak you out: scary-movie actors who have their own, real scary stories to tell!

1. Kate Hudson

Starring in Ehren Kruger's 2003 film "The Skeleton Key," Kate Hudson has officially dipped her toes into the horror genre. The mostly rom-com actress has a few secrets up her sleeve, however- she sees dead people! Well, in a sense- in an interview in 2014, Hudson claimed that she can feel spirits, which she describes as "a fifth energy." She even mentioned a time in which she saw a faceless ghost-woman! Reportedly, Hudson's mom, Goldie Hawn, also experiences similar feelings.

2. Lucy Hale

From hit series "Pretty Little Liars" to the 2018 horror film "Truth or Dare," Lucy Hale is no stranger to all things creepy. Sharing her story with Hollywood Teen'Zine, Hale told of coffee-hungry ghosts who shut her doors and trigger motion-sensor alarms.

Thankfully, Hale also stated that while she doesn't feel threatened, she does still get freaked out. And who could blame her?! Here's to hoping that the ghosts will soon leave Hale and her coffee alone!

3. Keanu Reeves

It turns out that when John Wick (aka Keanu Reeves) isn't fighting bad guys, he's dealing with ghosts! Reeves has starred in many creepy films including "The Matrix", "Constantine", and "The Watcher." And while they aren't all paranormal, they do seem to have a strange or unnerving feeling that viewers can't seem to shake.

As it turns out, Reeves doesn't just face the strange in movies- he's faced it in real life, too! Starring on Jimmy Kimmel Live, Reeves recalled a time as a young boy when both he and his nanny saw a ghost- definitely bizarre!

4. Matthew McConaughey

Okay, okay, Matthew McConaughey hasn't ever really starred in a traditional paranormal film. But he did star in "Frailty," which is just as dark and eerie (and touches on the supernatural). And while McConaughey certainly gets a ton of attention from his (living) female fans, it appears that he's been getting some love from the dead ones, too!

In an extremely appropriate fashion, McConaughey opened up about real-life ghosts while discussing his film, "Ghosts of Girlfriends Past". While sharing his story, he even mentions that his ghost has a name, Madame Blu! McConaughey reports that her presence was short-lived, however, so hopefully, she finally found peace.

5. Dan Aykroyd

Alright, this by far is the coolest one! One of the original "Ghostbusters," Dan Aykroyd apparently was inspired to make the movie based on his own experiences with the paranormal! Claiming that the paranormal was never something strange in his childhood, Aykroyd has stated that he's been witness to many paranormal happenings. In fact, Aykroyd believes that he's been visited by his own great-grandparents! Clearly, this ghostbuster has a few more ghosts to catch!

I was never really big on cocktails. Tequila soda is always a go-to drink for me because of its simplicity and, to be honest, lack of extra calories from mixers chock-full of sugar, chemicals, and other unknown ingredients. I like tequila, and like to be able to really savor it.

This all changed when, a couple of years ago, a friend of mine made me a margarita from scratch — no funky mixers involved — and it tasted incredible. It was light, refreshing, and complemented the tequila without overpowering it.

I was blessed with thick, full hair up until my late teens. At the time, I cursed my hairiness — this was before full eyebrows became trendy or cool, and were instead a point of bullying many of my fellow full-browed teens can relate to.

Later in my 20s, hormonal stability was something I was thankful for, though a major side effect ended up being hair loss — on my head, lashes, and brows. I now find my filling in my brows on an almost daily basis. As much as I enjoy toying with and testing out different brow-filling products, it'll never be quite the same as being able to have "I woke up like this" full, Gigi Hadid-esque brows.

May Is Mental Health Awareness Month, A Reminder We Need Even More In Quarantine

You're going through something brand new — that's worth talking about.

May is Mental Health Awareness Month. This isn't new to 2020, but oh man, if we ever needed a reminder about the importance of mental health, now is the time. With different states all over the place in regard to stay-at-home orders, phased reopenings, and a "new normal," we're experiencing conflict, fear, changes, and unknowns that can easily trigger mental struggles we already have or spark feelings we've never had before. Yes, May is always Mental Health Awareness Month, but in quarantine, that need for positive mental health is taken to a whole new level.

These 11 Face Masks On Etsy Support Small Businesses While Fighting The Spread Of Coronavirus

We're staying safe as states start lifting lockdown guidelines.

I, like most people who have had the luxury of being able to stay at home during this time, haven't spent much time outdoors at all. But when I do brave the great outdoors for a walk or to get to the grocery store, you won't find me without a mask.

My family and I were lucky enough to have family friends who were sewing some and had extras to give to us, but most of my friends and loved ones outside my immediate family have had to order some (or make a makeshift one out of scarves or bandanas).

The one thing we haven't distanced from is our bank account.

Throughout quarantine, I've been FaceTiming most of my friends in a full turtleneck or the go-to cozy sweater I keep wrapped around the chair in my room. Either way, I always have tea in my hands to keep myself warm — till this past week.

For most of the country who hasn't had the luck of quarantining in 90-degree weather on their family's lake house or with a backyard pool, things began to change this month. Our favorite shows came out with summer seasons, the sun came out, and we started spending more time outside.
