Often, when you tell people about your phobia, they try to tease you and make jokes about them. For instance, you told someone you are scared of spiders, and the next thing they did was offer to buy you a spider as a pet or put a spider in your bed. Not nice!
Phobias are not funny or cute. These jokes can cause real-time anxiety and irreparable harm. However, exposing people to their phobias could also make them overcome it. As much as it is essential to know how to respect people’s phobia, we would not be going into much of that today. We’re here to give you a full scoop of celebrities and their phobias. Just like regular folks, stars have phobias too. So let’s see 10 celebs and their unusual phobias.
1. Kristen Bell
A couple of months ago, we discovered what Kristen Bell’s phobia was, courtesy of her husband. Kristen’s hubby, Dax Shepard, posted a picture of the actress in a pool donning a two-piece swimwear with a hat and a pair of dark shades. Kristen was obviously not swimming; not with those gloved hands. Who wears gloves to swim?! Well, Kristen Bell does. She’d probably have people trolling her if her husband didn’t subtly tell us what was going on in the caption.
‘My bride wears glove in the pool because she hates the feeling of pruney fingertips on skin. #Hollyweird #iloveher.’
Kristen’s actor husband explained further on Jimmy Kimmel Live a few days later. He was like,
‘What I had been told thus far is she just doesn’t like going in the pool. She’d take the kids out there, but she just sits in a lawn chair or whatever.’
The comedian continued that with the recent rise in the temperature in LA, she ‘had to get in the pool.’ Not without her gloves as she said ’I have to get my pool gloves!’ Weird, yeah? Dax loves her just the way she is.
