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. 

Woody Allen- Almost Everything
Woody Allen- Almost Everything

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.

Tyra Banks - Dolphins
Tyra Banks - Dolphins

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. 

Taylor Swift - Sea Urchins
Taylor Swift - Sea Urchins

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.

Orlando Bloom - Pigs
Orlando Bloom - Pigs

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. 

Nicole Kidman - Butterflies
Nicole Kidman - Butterflies

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). 

Oprah Winfrey - Chewing Gum
Oprah Winfrey - Chewing Gum

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.

Megan Fox - Dry Paper
Megan Fox - Dry Paper

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. 

Carmen Electra - Water
Carmen Electra - Water

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. 

Matthew McConaughey - Revolving Doors
Matthew McConaughey - Revolving Doors

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.

Sean Combs - Long Second Toe
Sean Combs - Long Second Toe

Known as "Morton's toe," the condition is actually quite common. We wonder what he would do if he had the condition himself?!

Ellen Page - Tennis Balls
Ellen Page - Tennis Balls

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!

Christina Ricci - Plants
Christina Ricci - Plants

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. 

Billy Bob Thornton - Antique Furniture and Silverware
Billy Bob Thornton - Antique Furniture and Silverware

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. 

Adele - Seagulls
Adele - Seagulls

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.

Pamela Anderson - Mirrors
Pamela Anderson - Mirrors

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.

Meryl Streep - Helicopters
Meryl Streep - Helicopters

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.

Kyra Sedgwick - Talking Foods
Kyra Sedgwick - Talking Foods

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!

Keanu Reeves - Darkness
Keanu Reeves - Darkness

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.
