Alfred Hitchcock – Eggs

When you think of what Alfred Hitchcock, the man behind some of the scariest films in movie history, might be afraid of, you might think of something deep or profound or something really messed up. But in reality, the man is scared of something more simple: eggs. “I’m afraid of eggs,” he once famously admitted. “That white round thing without any holes…have you ever seen anything more revolting than an egg yolk breathing and spilling its yellow liquid?”

Strangely enough, there is an actual term for the fear of eggs: ovophobia. And when you’d think that that’s the only bizarre thing the famous director was afraid of, you’re sorely mistaken. He was also scared of sex, heights, and he also reportedly has a lifelong fear of being mistakenly arrested and thrown in jail for life.
