Ghostbusters star Kristen Wiig gets spooked by a ghost on Ellen

Posted on

Who ya gonna call? Maybe not Kristen Wiig

Guests of Ellen should know the host loves to pull pranks. But the Ghostbusters star clearly missed that memo before she appeared on a recent episode of the talk show following the release of her latest indie project, Welcome to Me.

After Ellen DeGeneres asked Wiig whether she believes in ghosts, a person dressed all in white and covered with face paint leapt out of a faux-coffee table, scaring the actress out of her seat. Hopefully, by the time shooting for the reboot gets underway this summer, Wiig will have a better defense for a battle with the supernatural than running away in fear.
