Coulrophobia as it is known, is estimated to affect 12% of US adults and affects other famous celebs including rapper P. Diddy, Johnny Depp, Carol Burnett and Anthony Bourdain. Many believe this relatively new phobia increased after Steven Kings horror book IT, became a film in the 1990’s.

This common phobia had to be overcome when the actress had to buried alive in a coffin for the film Kill Bill 2. Most studies show that this phobia starts over a traumatic past or childhood event, which challenges the misconception that this is a genetic disorder phobia. Claustrophobia is actually a conditioned response to a stimulus, this stimulus becomes programmed into the brain, increasing anxiety when in confined spaces.

 

In the Number Eight Slot is

Coimetrophobia- Fear of cemeteries or graveyards, is often an unknown phobia, but for Sara Michelle Gellar this phobia is real,  so real in fact that she once refused to film an episode of  “Buffy the Vampire Slayer” as the director for authenticity decided to film the scene in a real graveyard.

Pamela known for her good looks is  completely terrified of her own reflection. Not only can she not look at herself in a mirror, she also refuses to watch herself on television. The fear of mirrors is generally known as eisoptrophobia or catoptrophobia, it’s not really about being scared of mirrors it’s more about being frighten of the reflection within.

Apparently it has been reported (on the web!!!) that on average 14 people are raped by dolphins each years, with various you-tube videos backing up this strange claim, which maybe while this weird phobia is on the increase. “I’ve been afraid of them since I was 8 or 9,” says Tyra “I have dreams that I am in a pool and there are dolphins bumping me and I’m frightened.” Banks isn’t the only celeb with a dolphin fear, Jessica Simpson also suffers from this rare and strange phobia.

Toe phobia is called podophobia only 1 in 1000 people have it. Diddy’s phobia came to light live on air, when he appeared on The Tonight Show with Kate Beckinsale. Throughout the show he refused to look down, until he was asked  why, he replied by saying “this foot thing. I really fear a second long toe.” Some podophobics are so scared of toes that they have to wear socks 24/7 so they don’t accidentally glance at their own feet.

Kyle hates the sounds the coat hanger makes as it moved along its rail, and was quoted saying “It’s a room in my home where everything is laid out. It never looks like other people’s wardrobes. I’ve got far too many shoes, but they’re so pretty I don’t like to hide them away.”

Pantophobia – The Fear of everything Allen is reported to of told interviewers about a massive phobia of Elevators, insects, bright colours  heights, sunshine, children, dogs… and from arachibutyrophobia (fear of peanut butter sticking to the roof of your mouth,) deers, small rooms, crowds, cancer and anywhere except Manhattan. Given half the chance I reckon Woody would quite happily take on the above 9 phobias as well.

  1. I was wondering if you ever considered changing the page layout of your site?
    Its very well written; I love what youve got to say.

    But maybe you could a little more in the way of content so people
    could connect with it better. Youve got an awful lot of text for only having one or two images.
    Maybe you could space it out better?
