We all have fears whether we honestly like to admit it or not. While some are very rational and common, there are several fears out there that seem pretty ridiculous. As much as we like to believe that celebrities are practically perfect because of their amazing talent and astonishing beauty, they’re really not; Some have terrible hygiene, others commit crimes, and surprisingly, some have weird and irrational fears. It can’t be helped, of course, but let’s take this time to look at some of the craziest fears they have and appreciate the fact that we don’t!
1. Oprah Winfrey – Chewing Gum
Oprah has Chiclephobia which is the fear of chewing-gum. She’s had this fear since childhood and it’s so bad that she has had to ban it from the building she records her show in down in Chicago.
“My grandmother used to save it (chewing-gum) in little rows in the cabinet. I’d be scared to touch it because it was so gross, so I have a thing about gum,”
“One guest in my home sat at the dinner table, took out some gum from her mouth and put it on her plate – after she left, I threw the plate out”
