Actor Ben Stiller admits that he is “aware of ghosts” and has lived in haunted places before. He reported feeling uncomfortable in his new home. Stiller recently moved from the west coast to New York City to star in the Broadway play, “The House of Blue Leaves.”
Stiller told David Letterman on CBS’ The Late Show that he doesn’t like living in a town outside the city limits. He currently is staying in a suburb of the city right now. “I have a little thing with quietness and spirits. I’m aware of ghosts,” he told Letterman. “I sort of believe in ghosts, and my wife doesn’t; she’s afraid of axe murders.”
The Zoolander and Tropic Thunder star admitted that he has previously lived in two haunted houses. “We rented a house in Los Angeles a few years ago, that something had gone on in, because the caretaker of the house was a little bit loopy,” he said.
“She had called to check on us a few days in and she said, ‘How’s it going? Have you had any experiences?’ And I said ‘No’, and she goes ‘Well… when I stayed there every morning I woke up at 4:43am for three weeks straight. And I got buzzed on the intercom a few times and I heard a few doors slam. Then one morning at about 4:48am in the morning I heard a party going on downstairs, a full on party with Charleston music playing and people mingling’.”
Stiller stated that he has not witnessed any paranormal activity himself. He did admit that his parents, Jerry Stiller and Anne Meara, once rented a home in Nantucket that was haunted by a young baby named Stanley Benjamin.
