They see dead people, too! Many celebrities have shared some spooky supernatural stories based on their encounters with the paranormal.
Holly Madison and Bridget Marquardt revealed that they had very strange experiences while living in the Playboy mansion with Hugh Hefner.
“The mansion is a home that’s very intriguing for so many reasons,” Madison, who lived there from 2001 to 2008, detailed to Nylon in August 2021. “People talk about it being haunted. There’s all these weird urban legends like trafficking tunnels. It takes on a life of its own.”
Marquardt, who lived in the mansion from 2002 to 2009, agreed that she could definitely feel “the nostalgia and the old energy” while living there.
“I had little things happen,” Marquardt said about her experience seeing a woman standing in the doorway of her closet. “She had long, black stringy hair, very pale, very thin. She was wearing a white T-shirt that was too big on her and black acid wash-y jeans. She was more modern-day and I feel like I recognized who she was.”
The Holly’s World alum added that she tried to “rationalize” the various encounters for a while until she finally accepted that these things would keep happening.
“For me, it took a bunch of different experiences before I thought ‘OK, there’s something weird going on here.’ I said I wish I had more proof it was real, and right away when I said that, her TV turned on by itself and the volume went all the way up,” she detailed.
Looking back on it afterward, Madison considered it a sign that something would occur when she was looking to be alone in the mansion.
“I would go hide in that bathroom. It was the one place in the house where nobody would go, and sometimes the toilet would flush by itself, and I always thought that was kind of weird. It always came during these weird, introspective moments at the time,” she added. “I don’t know what they were trying to tell me.”
Lily Collins also reflected on how she found herself being “woken up by flashes of images,” while preparing for her role as Ted Bundy’s ex-girlfriend in the 2019 film Extremely Wicked, Shockingly Evil and Vile.
“I didn’t feel scared — I felt supported,” Collins told The Guardian in May 2019. “I felt like people were saying. ‘We’re here listening. We’re here to support. Thank you for telling the story.'”
