10 Celebrities Who Have Had Ghostly Encounters
I have seen some pretty scary things in my life – like my mother-in-law without makeup (just kidding). Since it’s almost Halloween, and nearly everyone has at least one ghost story they like to tell this time of year, I’d like to share the stories of 10 celebrities who have had ghostly encounters. Bring a flashlight because it’s about to get spooky in here!
Jenna Bush claimed that ’20s-era music would often emanate from the fireplace in her bedroom in the White House. Her sister Barbara has allegedly heard it, too.
Kate Hudson claims that she frequently saw a ghost with no face and was also once visited by the spirit of her grandmother.
Nicolas Cage (‘Ghost Rider’ and ‘The Sorcerer’s Apprentice’) was staying in the attic at his uncle Francis Ford Coppola’s house one time when he encountered the ghost of a woman with ‘big hair.’ He also owned an allegedly haunted house in New Orleans for a while.
Matthew McConaughey claims he has a ghost in his house which he has named ‘Madame Blue.’
When he was five, Keanu and his sister saw a ghost in their house. It wore a white, double-breasted suit, but had no legs.
KISS guitarist Ace Frehley claims a ghost once grabbed a book off the top of a water cooler and threw it at him. It hit him in the head.
This actress and musician currently stars on ‘Gossip Girls’, was Cindy Lou Who in the live action feature ‘How the Grinch Stole Christmas’, and apparently has an obsession with the macabre. Taylor Momsen had an elderly neighbor died, so she went into the woman’s house to do some ghost-hunting. She claims to have snapped two photos: One of a disembodied hand on a typewriter, and another of the woman’s whole body visible in a window.
Patrick Stewart (‘Star Trek,’ ‘X-Men’) claims to have seen a ghost onstage while performing at the Haymarket Theatre in London. He and co-star Ian McKellen (‘Lord of the Rings,’ ‘X-Men’) later found out that a long-dead actor by the name of John Baldwin Buckstone supposedly inhabits the building. We had Professor X and Gandalf the Grey in the same theater and we couldn’t catch the ghost?
She played a witch on the long running television show “Buffy The Vampire Slayer” so it’s no surprise that Alyson claims that a ghost lives with her, her husband, Alexis Denisof—who played a rogue demon hunter on the Buffy spinoff ‘Angel’—and their daughter.
Country singer Mindy McCready claims to have seen dark shadows and an “unmistakeable” apparition. Mindy recounts her story on the Biography Channel’s ‘Celebrity Ghost Stories.’
