Danes Brushes Off Ghost Stories
Claire Danes has laughed off rumours the set of ME AND ORSON WELLES was haunted, insisting she wouldn't have been able to act if she'd spotted a ghost.
Tabloid reports suggested Danes and co-star Zac Efron were left spooked after they came face-to-face with a spirit in the historic Gaiety Theatre on Britain's Isle of Man, where they were filming the period drama last year (08).
But Danes is relieved to report the stories aren't true - because she's terrified of supernatural beings.
She says, "I'm really glad that I only learned about this recently, this ghost business. That news evaded me while we were filming. I'm really glad because I would have totally panicked! I think a lot of theatres have ghost tales but I never saw anything."
