It's hard to believe that something as simple as fear could control someone's life, but for the millions of Americans who suffer from phobias, that's exactly what happens. Phobias are irrational fears of certain objects, animals, or situations, and they can be so crippling that people will go to great lengths to avoid them. While most phobias can be treated with therapy or medication, there are some cases where they are so severe that the person is unable to function normally. If you're one of the many people who suffer from a phobia, don't feel ashamed or embarrassed - you're not alone.

Do you know what your celebrity phobia is? No, not the fear of celebrities, but the fear of something that reminds you of a celebrity. Believe it or not, there are quite a few famous people out there with some weird and wacky fears. For example, did you know that Tom Cruise is afraid of spiders? Or that Jennifer Aniston is scared of vacuum cleaners? And these fears aren't limited to just Hollywood stars – even royals have their quirks! So if you're ever feeling down in the dumps, take heart knowing that even celebrities are human after all. And who knows, maybe reading about their strange fears will help you come to terms with your own!
