Avoid black cats. Be extra careful on Friday the 13th. And never, ever walk under a ladder. These are a few common superstitions you just might share with your favorite celebrity. A number of famous actors, musicians, and athletes are superstitious, whether that means they treasure lucky pieces of clothing, or avoid certain letters. Some superstitious celebrities even defy common traditions – like not saying "Macbeth" in a theater – to negate their supposed power.
Among other famous people who are superstitious, this list includes stars like Jennifer Aniston. The actress has a pre-flight ritual which involves stepping onto the aircraft with her right foot and tapping the outside of the plane. Lady Gaga is superstitious around sex. "If you're not having sex with someone who really cares about you or who really loves you, they can screw up your energy," she said.
Several famous men also number among celebrities who are superstitious. Axl Rose reportedly will not perform in cities that begin with the letter M and Benicio del Toro wears a ring with a wooden core so he can always knock on wood whenever needed. Other superstitious celebs include Michael Jordan, Megan Fox, and Christian Bale.Do you believe in superstitions? If you do, you're in good company.
