(Newser) Betty Confidential was at New York Comic Con recently, where it caught one particularly spooky panel: “Celebrity Ghost Stories.” Read on, if you dare:

  • Kate Hudson: Apparently one of the most haunted celebs around, Hudson says she’s seen ghosts more times than she can number, including a beyond-the-grave version of her grandmother.
  • Nicolas Cage: The ghost he saw at Francis Ford Coppola’s place had big hair and looked like his aunt.

  • Matthew McConaughey: Who else would jump out of bed totally naked to chase a ghost with a baseball bat? But he and the ghost eventually made friends; he says her name is Madame Blue.
  • Ace Frehely: The KISS guitarist says a ghost once threw a book at his head.
  • Taylor Momsen: Is anyone surprised that the rebellious actress went ghost hunting after an elderly neighbor died? Momsen even claims to have pictures of her ghost.
Read on for the full list, including one celeb who claimed she had a sexual affair with a spirit.
