It’s all tricks and no treats when celebrities dare to visit Hollywood’s very own haunted house that’s otherwise known as The Ellen DeGeneres Show.
DeGeneres is well known as a beloved talk show host, Academy Awards MC, and the architect behind one of the most popular photographs of all time. Those accolades notwithstanding, DeGeneres is also notorious for having a mischievous side when it comes to spooking unsuspecting celebrities. If George Clooney is the king of celebrity pranks, Ellen DeGeneres is the queen.
Time after time, episode after episode, a number of Hollywood’s biggest stars have fallen victim to DeGeneres’ classic scares. Whether it’s hiding in the bathroom to frighten Taylor Swift or petrifying Jack Black with a giant raccoon, Ellen proves that the calendar doesn’t have to say October in order to participate in a little bit of good-natured trickery!
In honor of Halloween, enjoy 31 of Ellen Degeneres’ greatest celebrity scares!
