    Taylor Momsen

    This actress and musician currently stars on 'Gossip Girls', was Cindy Lou Who in the live action feature 'How the Grinch Stole Christmas', and apparently has an obsession with the macabre. Taylor Momsen had an elderly neighbor died, so she went into the woman's house to do some ghost-hunting. She claims to have snapped two photos: One of a disembodied hand on a typewriter, and another of the woman's whole body visible in a window.

    Patrick Stewart (‘Star Trek,’ ‘X-Men’) claims to have seen a ghost onstage while performing at the Haymarket Theatre in London. He and co-star Ian McKellen (‘Lord of the Rings,’ ‘X-Men’) later found out that a long-dead actor by the name of John Baldwin Buckstone supposedly inhabits the building.
