Many celebrities in Hollywood claim to have seen ghosts and some add that their own home is haunted.

Ghostbuster actor Dan Ackroyd admits to being unnerved by spooky goings-on in his home which had previously been owned by Mama Cass Elliot, one time member of the 60's cult group Mamas and Papas. He has been stated as saying 'A ghost certainly haunts my house. It once even crawled into bed with me. I rolled over and just nuzzled up to whatever it was and went back to sleep. The ghost also turns on the Stairmaster and moves jewelry across the dresser. I'm sure it's Mama Cass because you get the feeling it's a big ghost'.

Heartthrob actor Hugh Grant is said to have heard the ghost of actress Bette Davis sobbing and moaning as it moves through the luxury apartments of the Los Angeles Colonial Building where she used to live.

The late comedy actress Lucille Ball is also said to haunt her old home at North Roxbury Drive; windows have been mysteriously broken, furniture moved of its own accord and shouting has been traced to the attic rooms.

But the most disturbing of all Hollywood haunting tales has to be that of the beautiful 60's actress, the late Sharon Tate, who was murdered by the so called 'Manson-family' She actually saw her own ghost!

The heavily pregnant young actress was staying at a luxury rented mansion in Hollywood, whilst her film producer husband Roman Polanskii was away in Europe. It was there she had the unnerving experience of seeing two ghosts! It occurred one evening as she was resting in her bedroom and she saw the specter of what she described as a 'creepy little man' She recognized him immediately as the former owner of the house, Paul Burn, a theatrical agent who had shot himself in an upstairs bathroom following the break-up of his marriage to actress Jean Harlow. Tate fled screaming from the bedroom, only to be immediately confronted by her own ghost at the foot of the stairs. She described seeing the spirit of a woman who was tied to a pillar with her throat cut. She had strangely had a glimpse of her own horrific fate at the hands of her killers. She was found in exactly this position following the attack by Manson gang. Her hysterical screams could not be quieted for some time.

If she had acted upon her amazing foresight - her name would not be sadly forever linked with the terrible events that happened in the mansion shortly afterwards.

  1. I am probably the biggest Sharon Tate fan and this story is wrong! Sharon indeed did see the ghost of Paul 'Bern' not 'Burn', but it wasn't in her Hollywood mansion and not when she was pregnant, it was in Jay Sebring's house in 1966 when they were dating before she met Roman Polanski, Jay's house was the house that once belonged to Jean Harlow and Paul Bern.
