The Interesting Phobias of 10 Celebrities

We’re all afraid of something.   But in general most of us don’t have phobias.   Having a phobia is considered clinical meaning you have a serious problem, one that is actually documented.

I mean sure I fear dying but not in the literal sense where it pervades my life.   And it ain’t just us normal people that fear things.  Some of the most well known people out there have plenty of fears.

In fact, here are 10 celebrities that have some pretty interesting phobias….

Billy Bob Thornton

Billy Bob is afraid of bright colors (chromophobic), of airplanes, and oddly enough antique furniture.   It’s all good though.  He got to do a very erotic sex scene with Halle Berry.  Thornton refuses to stay in any hotel room where furniture was made before 1950.

Carmen Electra

Carmen as hyrophobia.  Yup, she’s afraid of water.   Interesting considering she does so much posing in bathing suits.  And wasn’t she on Baywatch?  How the hell did she pull that one off?

Keanu Reeves

I’m sure all you meme fans out there will be surprised to know that Keanu is a scotophobia.   Yes, Neo is afraid of the dark.  There’s gotta be some kind of funny meme we can create out of this one right?

Kelly Osbourne

Apparently she suffers from Haphophobia which is the fear of being touched.   I find that extremely hard to believe.  I would imagine in her drugged out days she was touched quite often, and by strangers no less.

Lyle Lovett

Even though Lyle Lovett isn’t such a big celebrity I had to put this one in here because honestly I’ve never heard of a person having this fear.   He has Taurophobia which is a fear of bulls or cows.   What in the hell develops in a person to have this fear?  Did he have some sort of rodeo accident as a kid?

Oprah Winfrey

Apparently she suffers from chiclephobia which is a fear of chewing gum.    How could one chew anything at all and not be afraid and yet be afraid of gum?  I don’t get it.  I really don’t.

Pamela Anderson

I find this one nearly impossible to believe or maybe I just refuse to believe it.  Put it this way if I were Pamela Anderson I would NOT have cataptrophobia which is a fear of mirrors.   To look like Pamela it’s gotta be a real shame to not want to see your own reflection.

Robert De Niro

He’s a dentophobe which means at all costs Mr. De Niro will not go to the dentist.   I wonder how he keeps up with his dental health.  I’m sure he can afford it.

Tom Cruise

Cruise suffers from phalacrophobia which is a fear of going bald.  I’m sure he suffers from a hell of a lot more being a scientologist and all.

Woody Allen

Woody Allen has strong phobias against cancer (Carcinophobia), insects, sunshine, dogs, deer, bright colors, children, heights, small rooms, crowds, and anywhere except Manhattan.

    a whole lot of weird ones. Billy Bob was in that airplane movie, Pamela has a mirror above her bed and that Carmen thing. Wtf? These fears can’t be very strong

  • Noemi

    cool article. pamela and carmen are silly. everything else is funny

  • Troy J.

    Woody Allen must also have a fear of making a good movie.

  • J5

    My friend’s sister has Taurophobia. She’s has a genuine fear of cows… Fucking weird.

    I tried to get to the bottom of it and asked what it is specifically that she’s afraid of when it comes to cows and she said it’s because they’re so big, that they could crush someone.

    And yet she likes horses.

    What. The. Fuck.

  • Micktrex

    I personally don’t understand people who have a fear of mice. People that love anything cute and cuddly but when faced with a tiny, innocent ball of fluff scurrying through their house they panic.

  • looka

    not too long ago people would be locked up and called crazy for things like that, but now everyone just gets a pill and the rest of us have to act like nothing is wrong.. what the fuck is wrong with you???? apart from De Niro’s phobia, which is not that bad cause nobody likes to go to the dentist, the rest of them are just simply crazy and should be living on Shutter Island…

  • rthrth

    wow looka that is one of the most ignorant things i have ever read, seen, or heard. that is… that is just plain retarded. in this day and age, it amazes me that people can continue to be that small-minded. if anything, i think you should be the one locked up for that fucking retarded ass drivel shit

  • Mr. Ree

    I have nopammypussyphobia which is a fear of not being able to find pictures of Pam Anderson’s vagina on the Internet. I look for them everyday and fortunately, I have been finding them with relative ease.
    Thank God!

  • BobaFett

    Clonidine FTW…Allowing these crazy farkers to entertain us!!!

  • KilogoreTrout

    Keanu Reeves is canadian?

  • onegreekdude

    i saw pictures of pamela anderson without any make-up….i’d have catoptrophobia too xD

  • Sara

    Dude, do some research. A few years ago Lyle was gored by a bull and almost lost a leg. He jumped in the bull pen to save his uncle and was seriously injured. No wonder he’s afraid of bulls now. Any intelligent person would be!
