People have some weird phobias. We fear the known, the unknown, and everything in between. (Did you know, there is a phobia of phobias? It's called phobophobia)
Celebrities are known for being eccentric, but their weird phobias show us exactly how much. From spoons to houseplants, these are some of the weirdest phobias that afflict celebrities.
Liam Payne starts this list off with a doozy. The former One Direction star admitted to being afraid of handling spoons. This, after a particularly bad experience involving spoons during his school days.
"It is a bit weird. When I was a kid I was a bit naughty at school and when you were naughty they made you do the washing up. I had to wash all these nasty spoons and then it’s just stuck with me after. I don’t know what people are doing with their spoons, I don’t want to know!"
Martin has a fear of choking, more specifically, choking on avocado. The English actor famously revealed that he gets physically nauseous when he thinks about the dangers of choking on solid foods. As it turns out, avocado triggers his fears the most. His solution is to not have any avocado at all.
It is hard to imagine being afraid of dolphins. They are some of the gentlest and most intelligent creatures on earth. But Tyra Banks has a morbid fear of the creatures.
She does not find them the least bit adorable or gentle. Perhaps she had a run-in with dolphins that did not go well? Only she can say, but she has been pretty outspoken about getting anxious any time anyone even mentions dolphins.
For someone who spends so much time flaunting her body, Khloe Kardashian is morbidly afraid of belly buttons. That particular bit of human anatomy admittedly grosses out the reality TV star.
She is even grossed out by her belly button and admitted to needing hand mitts to wash her belly button.
Kendall Jenner is afraid of tiny holes. While the affliction may sound uncommon, it is quite common, and even has a name, trypophobia.
Anything that involves weird patterns made of a cluster of small holes triggers her phobia. She admitted to finding pancakes, honeycomb, and lotus heads particularly unsettling.
Hitchcock, one of the most visionary directors of all time was famously afraid of eggs. It is comical to think of the man who has made a career out of making unnerving horror movies as being afraid of eggs, but such is the irony.
That white round thing without any holes...have you ever seen anything more revolting than an egg yolk breaking and spilling its yellow liquid?
When Alfred puts it like that, it is hard to argue with him.
The irony of someone like Pamela Anderson being afraid of the mirror is reason enough to warrant deep research into the nature of phobias.
The former Playboy model who has bared it all in front of the camera is terrified of her reflection. She is also afraid to watch herself on television.
Christina Ricci is afraid of houseplants. That's right- houseplants!
While it is unclear what triggered her phobia, she has been forthright in admitting that she feels nauseous whenever she has to handle a houseplant.
