Everyone is afraid of something, whether it be clowns, spiders or heights. However, some people's extreme phobias are something most people can't even wrap their heads around. Stars aren't exempt from this — the following celebs have some of the most outright, strangest phobias we've ever heard of.
We're not even sure how this man leaves the house! Reportedly he has a phobia of cancer, insects, sunshine, dogs, deer, bright colors, heights, small rooms, children and crowds. Possibly more. What a life.
Often equated as the dogs of the sea, dolphins are cute, fun and loyal. They have even been known to save humans from sharks! Regardless, Tyra definitely does NOT think that way about our beloved sea creature. In fact, she de-smize-es them.
While on the "Ellen Degeneres Show," T-Swift opened up about her deepest, darkest fear: sea urchins. The singer likened the prickly sea creature to a grenade in the fact that they can puncture and injure you. While true, that isn't stopping us from enjoying a dip in the ocean.
Pigs flying would literally be absolute hell for the actor, who is apparently terrified of pigs. This little piggy went to the market, this little piggy stayed home, this little piggy had roast beef, this little piggy had none, and this little piggy scared the living daylights out of Orlando Bloom.
We could definitely compare Nicole's beauty and grace to a butterfly, but the actress would probably take offense. It appears she has had the phobia since her childhood (we wonder if she had some traumatic experience with a butterfly swarm attacking her a la "The Birds" style).
Chai tea lattes, new cars, and popular novels are a few of Oprah's favorite things; chewing gum is not. Apparently this strange phobia stemmed from her grandma constantly chewing gum, spitting it out and sticking it on furniture for later. We would be grossed out too.
Most people love the feel of a stack of warm, freshly printed papers or flipping through the pages of a book, but for Megan Fox it is literally the absolute worst. Perhaps she is more terrified of paper cuts, because those suckers do sting.
It's kind of ironic that this former "Baywatch" star has hydrophobia since, you know, it was all filmed on the beach! Apparently the actress is just that tough and dedicated to the job that she was able to fight through her intense fear of the water for the show. Kudos to her.
For as much as this star travels, this must be very tricky to avoid. McConaughey has an intense fear of them, and we can't entirely blame him. Revolving doors are all about timing, and what if you time it wrong? What if you get stuck? What if you lose a hand?! Scary stuff.
Known as "Morton's toe," the condition is actually quite common. We wonder what he would do if he had the condition himself?!
Ellen completely owns up to her weird phobia of tennis balls, admitting that if there is one in the room or a match on TV, she immediately needs to leave. Hey, admittance is the first step!
She's afraid of not just any plants, but particularly indoor house plants, with the main fear being that she finds plants dirty. Well, Christina does have a point, plants do indeed grow in the dirt.
You won't find this star at an antique mall anytime soon. Not only does the actor have a phobia of roll top desks and grandfather clocks (to the point that he refuses to stay in hotel rooms with furniture built before the '50s), he also has a deep mistrust towards the utensils we use to eat with. We wonder if he's on an all-liquid diet.
Maybe she was just trying to take a nice stroll down the boardwalk with some delicious fish tacos one day when attacked by a ravenous seagulls, or maybe while sunbathing on holiday one decided to unload its business on her. Whatever the reason, this award-winning singer is absolutely terrified of the flying beasts.
We wonder what exactly is so frightening about mirrors for this former "Baywatch" babe. Is it the fact that this star most notable for her good looks has to watch herself age in the world where everything rides on appearances? Hollywood can be a cruel place.
Helicopters do seem more dangerous than planes, we can't argue with this point. Though we're not sure where the deep phobia for this one stems. At least she isn't afraid of flying altogether, which would make her life a lot more difficult.
Who doesn't love The California Raisins or Mr. Peanut? Kyra Sedgwick, that's who! "The Closer" star doesn't just hate them, she's down right disturbed and has to leave the room whenever a talking carrot appears on TV. Good thing we all have DVR's now!
Someone still needs to sleep with a nightlight! Awwww!!! In all seriousness though, the dark is pretty creepy, and we'd be happy to comfort Keanu during the night.
