Los Angeles, California – She is America’s favourite television host (after Conan O’Brien). A few days ago, Ellen Degeneres celebrated her 60th birthday. On that occasion, Welovyou Magazine has interview the comedian. Among many questions, the Ellen Show host was asked what her favourite movie was. This is when she launched into a rant that would expose her biggest fear.
“I don’t really know what my favourite movie is”, Ellen said. “I can’t really think of any movie right now. Appart from that movie I saw in the 90’s, I think it was called Dream House. I don’t remember exactly what it was about but I remember clearly the computer/robot controlling the automated system and trying to kill someone in a shower. It traumatised me. Since then, I fear robots, or any kind of Artificial Intelligence, and showers together”.
Even though Ellen’s phobia should not be a problem in her daily life, it is still very present in her mind most of the time.
“I really hope that shower robots are not going to become a thing anytime soon, or ever actually”, Ellen continues. “Every time they talk about robots in the news, I do pray that they don’t talk about showers too. It is a very specific fear, but a strong one”.
