Celebrity Phobias That Will Shock You

We're all afraid of something, but there are a few celebrities that are terrified of unexpected things.

Oprah Winfrey may be one of the most powerful women in the world, but it doesn't take too much to scare her. The megastar is afraid of chewing gum. It freaks her out so much, she wouldn't even allow chewing into the building of her show.

Nicole Kidman is Australian, so naturally she's not afraid of spiders or snakes. The award-winning Aussie says she's 'terrified' of butterflies.

Speaking of spiders, don't let Kanye West fool you. While he may play the tough guy role pretty well, the rapper is petrified of the 8-legged creature and has to get his wife, Kim Kardashian, to get rid of them.

Billy Bob Thornton, says he's afraid of antique furniture. While it may seem strange, the actor says he can't even eat around antiques and they make him gag.

Helen Mirren says she's frightened of the phone. The Academy Award-winning actress says it makes her so nervous when it rings.

Woody Allen takes the cake, though. He refuses to take elevators, he's afraid of insects, bright colors, small rooms, crowds, sunshine, and dogs.

So don't beat yourself up about your anxieties, we all have them. Just remember, it could always be worse.
