From Pigs To Chewing Gum: 12 Celebrities That Have (Kind Of) Weird Phobias


Okay, so we all have phobias, right? From the common phobias (spiders, the dark), to the more unusual (fear of mirrors), almost everyone suffers from an inexplicable fear of something. And believe it or not, there are actually loads of celebrities that have phobias, in fact, some A-listers suffer from some pretty out-there, downright weird fears.

And, because we're a bunch of nosy parkers (and, maybe we want to identify with someone that shares our fear of belly buttons), here are some of the most interesting celebrity phobias. Do you experience any of these? Let us know your darkest fears…

Celebrity: Tyra Banks
Fear Of: Dolphins
Yes, she of the 'smize' is bats*** scared of dolphins. Apparently, it's a phobia she's suffered from since childhood. Flipper, beware.

Celebrity: Kendall Jenner
Fear Of: Tiny holes
Step away from the pancakes people, Kendall Jenner is officially terrified of tiny holes. And, it's so common, this phobia has an actual name. Kendall confessed via her blog: 'Anyone who knows me knows that I have really bad trypophobia.'
Trypophobia means that people are weirded out by things such as honeycomb, or mousse-like desserts, with lots of tiny holes. And, they really stress Kendall out. Poor lamb.
