Courteney Cox Reveals ‘I Didn’t Believe’ …Until She Did!
While promoting the upcoming Starz horror-comedy series, “Shining Vale,” Cox responded to host Jimmy Kimmel’s question about whether or not she had actually ever seen a ghost.
“I didn’t believe it at first,” she said of her former Laurel Canyon house. She revealed that the home was once owned by burlesque dancer Gypsy Rose Lee and singer-songwriter Carole King.
The “Friends” actress revealed that King actually came over to hold a séance to banish the spirit from the property once and for all.
“So, Carole King came over to my house and she said there had been a divorce that was really ugly, and there was a ghost in the house,” Cox explained. “And I was ‘Yeah, whatever.’ But other people who had stayed there with me — like, friends of mine — said they had an encounter with a woman who was sitting on the edge of the bed.”
However, Cox had a frightening encounter with a delivery man that made her go from a cautious skeptic to a full believer.
“I was at the house one day, not being a believer,” she recalled. “And the doorbell rang. It was a UPS guy or something, and I opened the door and he said, ‘Do you know this house is haunted?’ “And I go, ‘Yeah, why? Why do you think that?’”
“He goes, ‘Because there is someone standing behind you,’” Cox revealed. “And I was like, ‘Let’s sell.’”
Shortly after, Cox did sell the house, admitting, “I couldn’t sleep there alone ever again” after that scary experience.
However, the “Friends” star is not the only person who has had a run-in with the supernatural!
Foo Fighters Frontman Dave Grohl Admits To Living In A Haunted House!
While promoting his own horror comedy film, “Studio 666,” Dave Grohl was asked if he ever recorded in a real-life haunted studio. Although the Nirvana drummer admitted that he had never seen a ghost at a studio, he said that he did experience a real-life haunting in Seattle.
“First of all, Sound City [where Nirvana recorded Nevermind] did have a ghost,” he said. “I never experienced it. But a lot of the people that work there had some really crazy stories about what would happen after everyone had gone home.”
“But the Robert Lang studio [where Grohl recorded the first Foo Fighters record] in Seattle… that’s funny because I lived just down the street from there and the only time I’ve lived anywhere that had any sort of paranormal activity was in the house down the street from Robert Lang’s,” he explained. “I lived in that house for two years but there was something else in the house.”
“I wasn’t the only one that felt it,” he continued. “I wouldn’t mention it to anyone and then other people would mention it to me. Then I finally mentioned it to Robert Lang and he said there’s a ghost in the forest that separates me from Robert Lang’s studio. Like a legit f—ing creepy thing.”
“It was the ghost of a woman and she was in my f—ing dreams,” he added. “But as far as recording studios, I haven’t really haven’t had too much.”
“Studio 666” is available to view in theaters now. The film tells the story of the band trying to record their tenth studio album in a haunted mansion. Unfortunately, things take a turn for the worse when the band ends up battling demonic possession and supernatural forces who are trying to prevent them from finishing their album.
Although the film doesn’t leave much room for a sequel, Grohl said that he would love to see the film’s premise explored with another band.
“Believe me, we’ve talked about every f—ing sequel possibility,” he said. “Everything from getting the Wu Tang Clan in. I do think that whether it’s Foo Fighters or another band, I hope people will take the ball and run with it from here to bring that rock and roll movie genre back.”
“Look at all the f—ing remakes that you have to suffer through every year,” he added. “F— that, put the money towards sending Radiohead into a f—ing into a haunted mansion and see what happens. Believe me, people will enjoy it.”
