‘Ghostbusters’ Star Kristen Wiig Is Scared by a Ghost on ‘Ellen’ (Video)

The ”Welcome to Me“ actress will need to conquer her fear before the all-female reboot shoots this summer

Kristen Wiig ain’t afraid of no ghost — at least so she thought.

The “Welcome to Me” star appeared on “The Ellen DeGeneres Show” Thursday and was asked about her role in the upcoming “Ghostbusters” reboot, which features an all-female main cast.

“Do you believe in ghosts?” DeGeneres asked. “Yeah. Sure. Yeah. No, I do,” Wiig replied. DeGeneres said Wiig sounded hesitant, to which she said, “No, but I mean there’s different kinds I guess.”

At that moment, an “Ellen” crew member dressed as a ghost sprung out and scared the daylights out of Wiig. She was so frightened, in fact, she fell out of her chair. DeGeneres nearly did as well, but it was from laughter and not from fright.

The “Ghostbusters” reboot will star Wiig, Melissa McCarthy, Kate McKinnon and Leslie Jones. Paul Feig, who previously directed Wiig and McCarthy in “Bridesmaids,” will helm the project.
