1. Johnny Depp

One thing you might not know about the legendary actor is that he suffers from coulrophobia. Yes, Johnny Depp is deathly afraid of clowns. In an interview Depp explained his fear saying, “it’s impossible, thanks to their painted-on smiles, to distinguish if they are happy or if they are about to bite your face off!

11. Jennifer Love Hewitt

The buxom beauty has a horrible fear of elevators. There isn’t an official name for a fear of riding in an elevator, but the act of doing so can often trigger claustrophobia or agoraphobia, a fear of places and situations that might cause panic, helplessness, or embarrassment. Hewitt explained, “I simply cannot set foot in a lift if there are too many people in it. If there’s four or five people in it, then I just about manage it…I prefer it when it’s empty so I can scream if I want to.”
