Channing Tatum faces fear of porcelain dolls

Actor Channing Tatum was left squirming as he was forced to conquer his bizarre fear of porcelain dolls on TV.

The Magic Mike star paid a visit to comedienne Ellen DeGeneres' talk show on Wednesday (10Sep14) and confessed he has a phobia of the children's toy.


He divulged, "In real life I'm terrified of porcelain dolls. I think it comes from seeing a TV show where it was Friday the 13th and there was a possessed porcelain doll.


"They're really super freaky and they have real eyes and they look real. I just imagine that when I walk by them their heads turn with you the whole time."


In a bid to help Tatum overcome his fear, DeGeneres brought out two dolls and proceeded to climb on top of him with the lifelike figures while the actor tried to keep his distance, and he exclaimed, "That is not right. I'm not holding them!"
