Who is the most famous person who believes in ghosts? Miley Cyrus tops our list. In 2013, Miley Cyrus said that she saw ghosts in her London apartment. She told Elle Magazine, "I thought I had seen a little boy sitting on the sink watching me take a shower so I felt really freaked out. I was sitting there the next night and maybe I’m crazy, but I could have sworn I could see this little boy sitting there on the sink, kicking his feet."

In 2004, Anna Nicole Smith explained her ghostly encounter. "A ghost would crawl up my leg and have sex with me at an apartment a long time ago in Texas," she said. "I used to think it was my boyfriend, and one day I woke up and it wasn't."

When Ellen asked Bill Hader to tell her his rumored ghost story on The Ellen Showhe openly admitted that at a hotel in Ohio he met some spooky circumstances.

He starts by describing a potted plant that was mysteriously knocked over in the night. Next he noticed the sink had been filled to the brim though the faucet was off. When he asked the hotel staff about the odd encounter, they simply explained that his room was haunted. 

Considering the unnecessary inconveniences caused by the alleged ghost, Hader suspects his visitor was a cat.

On July 16, 2018, Jenny McCarthy posted some seriously spooky footage on Facebook, claiming her house was haunted. In the video, McCarthy checks her reflection in a mirror in her living room before exiting. Then, you hear the piano playing, seemingly all by itself! You can also overhear a frantic conversation between McCarthy and her husband regarding the incident. 

However, not everyone is buying the story. Some online sleuths claim the piano sound is actually just the noise Google Home makes when turned on and off. It's not clear whether McCarthy genuinely believed the sound to be supernatural in origin or if she was intentionally trying to mislead fans as part of an advertising campaign for the device.
