Do you believe in ghosts? If your answer is yes, then you are not the only one. Many celebrities have revealed some of their bizarre ghostly experiences in interviews. 

Octavia Spencer recently revealed on the 'Ellen DeGeneres Show' that she’s been living with the ghost of an old film star who did Westerns, but thankfully her ghost is more friendly than spooky. “My ghost can haunt me, but he doesn’t haunt me," she said. "We have boundaries."

In fact, Spencer says the ghost has been very useful. "I love him because he kind of sorts out the bad people that shouldn’t be there. He runs them out. If they stay at my place, they don’t wanna come back. And that’s how I know that they don’t belong here. If you’re a person that belongs there, everybody is like, ‘Oh, your place is so welcoming. It’s so great.’ And that’s how I feel about it."

DeGeneres asked the 'Hidden Figures' actress about any challenges with the ghost, to which she replied, “When I leave for a long time he’s a little shady. The doors close, the lights go off when I turn them on." She's also a little protective of her ghost, and said, "I just don’t want you bringing your ghost to my house. I don’t want anybody’s ghost thinking they can be friends with my ghost.”
