Emma Roberts scared of ghosts

EMMA Roberts is scared of ghosts.

The 23-year-old actress admits she's worried a spooky figure will creep up on her when she is sleeping, so she makes sure she checks behind every piece of furniture in her bedroom before she settles down for the night.

Speaking on the 'Late Night with Seth Meyers' last night (12.05.14), she said: "Everywhere I go I think is haunted. I'm the person checking under the bed, behind the curtains ten times before I go to bed. I'm very easily scared."

However, Emma has a good trick for keeping the eerie spirits at bay after she took part in a ghost tour of New Orleans, known for it's spooky stories, before shooting the upcoming season of 'American Horror Story: Coven'.

Speaking about the tour, she explained: "They take you around and they basically show you all these places where horrific things have happened and then tell you about all the ghosts and so after the ghost tour, I'm scared to death. "And I said to the woman, who led the ghost tour ... 'What do I do to make sure nothing happens to me, like there are no ghost encounters'. And she was like, 'Well, you have to make an offering when you get home tonight.' ... And I thought she was going to tell me to like cut the head off a chicken and put blood [over me] or something. And she was like, 'OK, I'll tell you the trick. Tequila and salt' ... she said leave it on your kitchen table and tell them it's for them and to leave you alone."

The blonde beauty admits she followed the woman's advice and the ghosts left her alone, unlike her co-stars.

She added: "A couple months went by, and we're shooting the show, and everyone had these horrible ghost things happen to them! I was the only one that didn't."
