Celebrities Who Claim to Have Seen Ghosts
Nothing will cause people to look at you funny faster than telling them you have seen a ghost. While plenty of people claim to have seen ghosts at some point, most people dismiss the idea of actual paranormal activity. Even when faced with something that seems inexplicable, most people prefer to believe that there is a rational, reasonable explanation – rather than attributing it to the work of a ghost. For example, a door slamming shut could be caused by a wind gust, and lights cutting out and then coming back on could be a simple electrical problem.
Or, those events could be the work of ghosts. It all depends on your perspective. Many people claim to have seen ghosts, including some people who are considered celebrities. Since it is basically impossible to disprove the existence of ghosts, this is a topic that is left up to each individual to either dismiss or believe in. By definition, no one is wrong in this case – simply because most people don’t believe in ghosts does not make them right.
Below is a list of celebrities who claim to have seen a ghost at some point in their life. No matter what your own personal belief on this topic happens to be, the stories below provide an interesting look inside the minds of famous people.
There are two distinct camps when it comes to Matthew McConaughey – either you love his films and his performances, or you can’t stand them. While the actor himself has proven to be polarizing throughout his career in terms of entertainment value, his opinions on ghosts fall into the same category.
McConaughey claims that his Hollywood home was once visited by an older, female ghost known as Madame Blue. If you are a McConaughey fan, you might see his belief in ghosts as just another reason to appreciate his work and his laid back nature. If you aren’t a fan, however, the ghost stories are just another reason to steer clear.
In some ways, Reeves falls into the same category as McConaughey. Despite being the subject of plenty of late night TV jokes throughout his career, Reeves has enjoyed plenty of box office success. Therefore, it might not be surprising that Keanu, much like Matthew, has a belief in ghosts. He has recounted a story in interviews where he was confronted by a suit – with no body inside – while he was a child. He claims that his childhood nanny also witnessed, and was shocked by, the experience.
This Hollywood star purchased the home of Bette Davis, although he might want to get a partial refund as it seems as if Davis is still occupying the home from beyond the grave. Grant says that he has heard unexplained wailing and screaming from around the Los Angeles home, which he has decided to attribute to the ghost of Davis.
Of course, there could be plenty of possible explanations for strange noises coming from inside or outside of a home, but most of them don’t make for as good of a story as the does the ghost of Bette Davis.
