Oscar Award-winning actress, Octavia Spencer, recently visited the “Ellen Degeneres Show,” where she revealed that she shared her Toluca Lake home with the ghost of an old-Hollywood Western film star.
“I grew up watching Westerns, and I bought this house, and it was owned by a guy who did Westerns, so I must have been a fan of his,” Spencer told Degeneres.
Spencer says she’s okay with sharing her space.
“My ghost can haunt me, but he doesn’t haunt me,” Spencer remarked. “We have boundaries. I love him because he kind of sorts out the bad people that shouldn’t be there. He runs them out,” she says, not naming the former Hollywood western star.
“If they stay at my place, they don’t wanna come back. And that’s how I know that they don’t belong here,” she continued. “If you’re a person that belongs there, everybody is like, ‘Oh, your place is so welcoming. It’s so great.’ And that’s how I feel about it.”
The “Ma” actress says while she enjoys living with him, he doesn’t like to be left on his own for too long.
“When I leave for a long time he’s a little shady,” Spencer quipped, adding that she’s not open to additional ghosts.
Her ghost bestie is the only one welcome in her home.
“The doors close, the lights go off when I turn them on. The only problem … I love my ghost — I just don’t want you bringing your ghost to my house. I don’t want anybody’s ghost thinking they can be friends with my ghost.”
