Hollywood's Most Haunted Homes!

Britney SPears haunted hollywood homes

Stars live in some of the most lavish homes in the world, but sometimes, they have to deal with unwanted visitors — and we’re not talking about the corporeal kind. We’re obvi talking about… ghosts!

Apparently, supernatural entities don’t care whether the humans they haunt are ordinary everyday people or mega successful celebs like Jennifer Aniston, Megan Fox, or Britney Spears. Nope, ghosts are equal opportunity haunters, and these celebs have the stories to prove it!

Ch-ch-check out our list of Hollywood’s most haunted homes (below) to see how several homeowners dealt with unwanted spirits in their homes, which stars moved out because the hauntings were just too scary to deal with, and which probably should have moved out when they had the chance.

Everyone knows the Playboy Mansion is crawling with women — but according to Bridget Marquardt, it also houses quite a few ghosts!

Speaking on paranormal activity podcast Dark House, the Girls Next Door alum said there are “ghost stories dating back decades from” the house that Hugh Hefner built, revealing that she’s seen a spirit herself! The former Playboy model recalled:

“My sister, myself and my friend Stacy were all sitting on my bed. We were talking, having a glass of wine, and the TV was on. All of a sudden, out of the corner of all of our eyes, we saw a woman standing in my closet… Of course when I turned to look at it straight on, it was gone.”

Even though Bridget didn’t get a good look at the spirit, she distinctly remembers its appearance. She explained:

“She had black, long kind of stringy hair and she was very pale and very skinny. And she was wearing a white T-shirt that was way too big on her and black acid-wash jeans. She was just standing there me staring.”

The bombshell went on to claim that she “recognized” the woman, adding that she believed it was the spirit of a “social secretary” at the mansion who Bridget met a few years earlier who had since died from cancer.

She also went on to recall other creepy encounters at the $100 million property, like doors that would slam or lock on their own, or the weird vibes visitors felt upon entering the huge abode. She even remembered Hef telling her the home’s original owner, “had either fell, been pushed or had jumped” to her death inside the property, and that her spirit haunts the grounds.

Machine Gun Kelly & Megan Fox

In an interview with Ellen DeGeneres, Machine Gun Kelly revealed that he AND girlfriend Megan Fox had otherworldly roommates in each of their homes.

The rapper recalled a night when the actress’ outside doors were opening and shutting, freaking her out so much that she locked herself in the bathroom. He came over with a gun to protect her, but soon realized the “enemy” was something that couldn’t exactly be shot.

Fortunately, the ghosts at MGK’s residence are much friendlier — which, according to him, is because they’re high. The performer explained:

“Everyone that comes to my house and stays past 7:00 PM, they’re always like, ‘Yeah, there’s definitely something in your kitchen.’ And then I realized that those ghosts are just… like high ghosts. They’re just always making ghost snacks or like washing ghosts dishes. They’re only doing pantry or refrigerator things. Sometimes I’ll let off like a ‘Thank you!'”

You know what they say: happy ghost, happy life! Or something like that…

Matthew McConaughey

While promoting his 2009 movie Ghosts of Girlfriends Past, Matthew McConaughey revealed he once had to share his El Lay home with a female spirit named “Madame Blu,” who was apparently quite the buzzkill. He shared:

“I was not even under the influence and she was there. She wasn’t that happy, it didn’t seem like she was going to be much fun to hang around or have in my house, so I went ahead and stood my ground. I opened the door and said ‘You can move around all you want but I’m not going anywhere.’ For weeks everyone that came to the house said the same thing: ‘There’s someone down in that hall, there’s somebody down in that hall.’ “

Fortunately, the spirit “just went away,” and Matthew was able to party in his home without pissing off any supernatural presences.

Jayne Mansfield

The classic Hollywood actress’s Los Angeles home, dubbed the Pink Palace, is said to have been the site of many strange events after her death in 1967.

Ringo Starr had the home painted white when he moved in, but allegedly the pink shade would always seep through the new coats of paint. Another owner, singer Engelbert Humperdinck, had met the actress before she died and said that Jayne’s ghost appeared before him. The house was demolished in 2002.

Jennifer Aniston

Speaking to James Corden on The Late Late Show, Jennifer Aniston revealed the first house she had in El Lay was haunted. She recalled:

“All of a sudden, things started to happen… the dishwasher would start to go, the coffee maker would start to go… it was terrifying.”

Thankfully, the actress took the advice of a friend who suggested hiring a professional to “clear the house.” She added:

“They had frankincense and they put it in a little dish, and sort of started saying all these things. And the first corner that she went to, the dish cracked. When we got to the really thick, thick, thick 1975 ashtray that was sitting on the table and then that cracked and she asked me to leave then I [really believed it]. She had to have a talking to [with the ghost].”

While the paranormal expert was able to scold the ghost, the Friends star decided to move out anyway, because the spirit apparently did not care for her roommate at the time. She explained:

“[The ghost] hated my roommate. I moved out. I feel terrible, but I couldn’t say, ‘It doesn’t like you.’ I mean that would be terrible.”

Good call, Jen!

Lucille Ball

Even though the iconic comedienne didn’t die in her LA home, subsequent owners have reported mysterious broken windows, furniture moving around the house, and voices heard from the attic. Sounds like they have some ‘splainin’ to do…

Megan Mullally & Nick Offerman

During an appearance on Busy Tonight, Megan Mullally claimed she and hubby Nick Offerman once had a run-in with a spirit — but not just any spirit: the spirit of Nicole Brown Simpson, who was murdered in 1994.

The actress recounted:

“It wasn’t the same house, but it was on the same property where had once stood a house that O.J. Simpson had rented for Nicole Brown Simpson. We would have in that house, in one corner of the house, like maybe where the bedroom used to be in the old house, we would have all these sounds and weird things all the time. I would be like, ‘That’s Nicole and she’s pissed because Nick doesn’t get it.'”

What did the alleged spirit of Nicole want? For Offerman to know her story, according to Mullally!

The Will & Grace star explained that the paranormal activity stopped after her hubby watched documentaries and the American Crime Story season that covered Brown Simpson’s murder. She noted:

“Ever since then, no more sounds. She just needed Nick to understand what happened.”

The Buffy the Vampire Slayer alum has claimed that the El Lay home she shares with husband Alexis Denisof has a “very friendly” ghost. She told SFGate:

“I’d love to get his name. I’m thinking of putting a little chalkboard where I think he lives to see if he will write his name down.”

Sharon Tate

In August 1969, Hollywood was rocked when Charles Manson’s “Family” descended on Roman Polanski’s house on Cielo Drive in Beverly Hills and brutally murdered 5 people — including Polanski’s wife, actress Sharon Tate.

The house no longer exists. But according to the book Ghosts of Cielo Drive, the murder victims still haunt the property — and the house that filmmaker David Oman built just 150 feet away, five years after it was torn down in 1994. During construction, a worker told Oman he heard voices and footsteps coming from the top floor and that he knew he wasn’t alone, but found that nobody was there upon further inspection. Others claimed to hear voices and footsteps, and feel a cold breeze on the back of their necks.

Then, in July 2004, Oman woke from a deep sleep at 2 a.m. to find “a full body apparition at the bottom of his bed pointing towards the driveway which leads to the murder site.” He told LA Weekly:

“There was no sound. He gestured three times and then just disappeared.”

It was only when he later saw a photo of Jay Sebring, Tate’s close friend and hairdresser who was also brutally murdered on that horrible night, he was able to identify the figure he’d allegedly seen at the side of his bed.

Paranormal experts and psychics who have visited Oman’s home and have dubbed it “The Mount Everest of haunted houses” and “The D-land for the Dead” for the amount of paranormal activity that goes on there.


Britney Spears, Brittany Murphy

While speaking on the We Need To Talk About Britney podcast, the superstar’s former makeup artist, Julianne Kaye, revealed that Britney Spears realized the home she and then-boyfriend Justin Timberlake had once shared was haunted!

Kaye explained the Crossroads star once got a Reiki healing in the house and was convinced afterwards that it opened “some spirit portal.” The pop icon insisted she was being visited by a “male and female” spirit who were trying to “push her down the stairs,” and was so freaked that she decided to move out.

In an eerie turn of events, the person who bought Brit’s pad was none other than Brittany Murphy, who mysteriously died in her home in December 2009 — a death that still perplexes investigators to this day. To make matters creepier, Brittany’s husband also died in that house five months later, which leads Kaye to suspect the property may be “cursed.”

Got chills, Perezcious readers?!
