22 Celebrities Share Their Freaky Ghost Stories

Illustrated by Sara Andreasson.
Not everyone believes in ghosts. But, sometimes a nonbeliever just needs to hear a convincing story from the right person. Maybe if, say, a celebrity the naysayer loves and adores shared her encounter with the supernatural, the spook doubter might become more open to the idea of ghoulish friends. As it turns out, plenty of celebs have experienced something kinda freaky. Actually, Lucy Liu claims to have gotten freaky with a ghost.
The stories run from the typical — Cynthia Rowley lived in a scary old Connecticut mansion — to the cinematic – John Waters had a brush with a phantasmagorical orb while at summer camp. Honestly, you won't even need to watch a scary movie ever again after hearing Waters' frankly poetic account of his encounter with the Great Beyond. That said, no one tells a ghost story like Carrie Fisher.
Ahead, 22 accounts of famous people and the lucky ghosts who haunt them.
