Halle Berry knows firsthand what it’s like to fall prey to one of Ellen DeGeneres‘ on-air pranks, so she left nothing to chance during Tuesday’s show.

The “X-Men: Days of Future Past” actress was spooked by a man in a spider costume in 2012 during a bizarre conversation with DeGeneres about death and reincarnation as an arachnid. Two years later, just the mere mention of the prank is enough to get Berry to storm off the set.

“It’s been a while since you were here,” DeGeneres said. “And the last time you were here, we scared the hell out of you.”

“I was brave to come back here,” Berry quipped.

When DeGeneres just began to mention that she might do it again, Berry wasted no time and sprinted backstage to safety. DeGeneres quickly pulled Berry back onstage saying, “I was kidding, I shouldn’t have done that!”
