Celebrities Who Believe in the Paranormal
It’s easy to forget that celebrities are “real people” just like the rest of us. Whether it’s an actor, actress, singer, professional athlete, or any other form of celebrity, it can be hard to remember that they go on about their day-to-day lives well after the TV has been turned off at night. (Of course, they have more money to spend during those day-to-day lives.)
Once the lights are off and they’ve retreated into their semi-private lives, some celebrities like to keep their thinking out on the edge. It often takes a creative and imaginative brain to become a celebrity in the first place, making this group of people particularly likely to believe in things that most people would dismiss out of hand – such as paranormal activity.
The average person on the street would look for a rational explanation for something that seemed to be “out of this world,” but there are a few celebrities (along with some everyday people as well) who are prone to believe in the paranormal. While no one can technically prove that these paranormal theories are actually wrong, they certainly fall out of line with the commonly held world views of the common person.
So, do your favorite celebrities believe that there’s more to this world than what we can see? Check out this list to find a few famous people who are inclined to support the idea of paranormal activity.
Although Joan Rivers has recently passed away, her time on earth was spent in part dealing with demons that she believed were haunting her New York City apartment. Rivers was so convinced that demons were living inside the building, she hired a “voodoo princess” from New Orleans to come to NYC for an exorcism. Rivers was so impressed by the work of this mystical princess that she remained friends with her for the following two decades.
It can be hard to tell sometimes with celebrities if they really believe in paranormal activity, or if they are simply making a joke or trying to create a headline. However, seeing as Joan Rivers brought someone in from New Orleans to her New York City residence to take care of a demon, we think it’s a pretty safe assumption that Rivers truly believed in this kind of activity.
Surprise! This is probably not a name that you would have expected to see on this list. Rockstars, TV personalities and the like? Sure. But certainly not a woman who is a leading candidate for the 2016 Presidential Election.
While it’s not clear if Hillary Clinton actually believes in paranormal activity, it has been well documented that she has had “conversations” with fellow former-First Lady Eleanor Roosevelt. What’s so strange about that? Nothing – other than the fact that Eleanor Roosevelt died in 1962. Whether the Presidential hopeful really believes that Eleanor was speaking to her, or if it was just an exercise to further her political thinking, can be left up to debate. Either way, there’s a good chance this topic will come up once or twice along the campaign trail.
