4. Tyra Banks has a fear of dolphins.
This phobia traces back to the model’s childhood. “I’ve been afraid of [them] since I was 8 or 9,” she once told People magazine. “I have dreams that I am in a pool and there are dolphins bumping me and I’m frightened.”
On an episode of her talkshow, she added, “You think a dolphin is sweet, is cuddly — but to me, they’re not. I feel anxiety and I feel panic whenever I’m confronting or even thinking about or talking about a dolphin—it’s happening right now.”
