What makes Justin Timberlake anxious?
Published: December 27, 2009
Some people sometimes fear some of the funniest and the weirdest things that may surpass our imagination. Phobias of some celebrities are so strange that they cannot be classified. Some of the irrational fears of celebrities include fear of going bald, fear of clown, fear of butterflies, fear of chewing gum and many such funny phobias.
But among all the celebrities, American pop star and actor Justin Timberlake has always been open about his list of phobias including arachnophobia (fear of spiders), galeophobia (fear of sharks), and ophidiophobia (fear of snakes) as well as his fear of dying unloved.
Some of Justin Timberlake’s marvelous works include the album ‘Justified’, ‘Future Sex/Love Sounds’, ‘My Love’ and some other hits. With six Grammy awards and two Emmy Awards under his belt, Timberlake also has a deep fear of future in-laws, which adds on to the list of weirdest phobias.
In an interview, he admitted to his fear and said: “I’m really, really scared of spiders.
“I just hate them.
“I was staying at a nice hotel and I had to call reception because I spotted one in my room.
“I was too scared to get rid of it myself.”
Apart from fear of spiders, the former NSYNC star is also known for being afraid of sharks and once said: “We started going to Coco Beach every weekend, all of a sudden sharks started to attack. I was afraid to go back into the water.”
As amusing as it may sound to everyone, Justin has a fear of falling unconscious at the concerts from the stuffed animal toys fans throw on stage.
We all might be scared of our mothers at some point in our lives but Timberlake has developed a phobia for this too. Justin Timberlake, in an interview to Life & Style said, “I try not to be afraid of anything, I’m still afraid of my mother, but I think every grown up man is!”
Justin Timberlake is not the only star who fears spiders; some other celebrities include Johnny Depp, Kirsten Dunst, Rupert Grint, Jessica Simpson and Andre Agassi.
