Phobias of the Stars

Billy Bob Thornton

No, Billy Bob isn’t scared that Angelina Jolie is going to try and take a vial of his blood again…but he definitely has one of the weirdest celebrity phobias. The actor suffers from obsessive-compulsive disorder, resulting in a fear of everything from antique furniture to certain types of silverware.

"It's just that I won't use real silver. You know, like the big, old, heavy-ass forks and knives, I can't do that," he told The Independent newspaper in 2004. "It's the same thing as the antique furniture. I just don't like old stuff. I'm creeped out by it, and I have no explanation why...I don't have a phobia about American antiques. It's mostly French—you know, like the big, old, gold-carved chairs with the velvet cushions. The Louis XIV type. That's what creeps me out. I can spot the imitation antiques a mile off. They have a different vibe. Not as much dust." —XFINITY Entertainment Staff (Photo by: Jason Merritt/Getty)
