The perpetually shirtless Matthew McConaughey, 45, is so hot he actually took a girl ghost home in 2003. “I heard a sound “like a dime dropping from 10 feet off the ground onto a glass table,” he said.

Maybe me being nude all the time is why we get along!”
The now deceased sex kitten, Anna Nicole Smith used to tell folks she actually hooked up with a spirited ghost — when she was still alive. “He would crawl up my leg and have sex with me.

Sexy Jessica Alba admits to an uncomfortably close encounter in her parents’ house as a kid. “I felt this pressure and I couldn't get up, I couldn't scream, I couldn't talk, I couldn't do anything.

She hears dead people. “I had pre-ordered breakfast for 7:30 a.m. — and at 7 a.m.,” Megan Fox, 29, said about a recent shoot in Mexico. “I heard them come in with the little table.

I heard the doorbell ring; I answer the door, it's room service with my food!” Ghosts gotta eat too, girl!!
The Matrix man, Keanu Reeves, had a "clothes" encounter with the supernatural when was just a kid. “I remember staring at this suit – which had no body or legs in it – as it came into the room before disappearing.

That’s totally excellent, dude!
Talk about a wardrobe malfunction. The Oscar winning actress, Halle Berry, said that while starring in Introducing Dorothy Dandridge she took home one of the late singer’s dresses – and brought a ghost along for the ride! “The housekeeper would say she’d heard my vanity chair moving upstairs.

Cher, 69, who had a famously tempestuous relationship with Bono, believes his ghost is haunting her – but in a friendly way: “I have a beautiful chandelier that he makes the light go on when it is impossible; there is no power on.
