5 Celebrities Who’ve Had Sleepwalking Experiences

Posted by PZ on March 13th, 2015

Sleepwalking is a strange phenomenon that can happen to anyone at any time – and these 5 celebrities all say they’ve had at least one sleepwalking experience. Getting up in the middle of the night to walk around their home, these stars have woken up only to realise they’ve moved stuff around in the night that can’t be explained, and they usually don’t even have a memory of what they’ve done. Here are their stories about sleepwalking!


Anna Kendrick


Anna attempted to sleep by using Ambien and instead ended up sleepwalking: “It’s a hell of a drug, a hell of a drug. I just sort of black out the second that I take it, and it’s like, I wake up, and I wake up to a surprise every time — like all my DVDs are in my fridge or something. Surprise!”

Jennifer Aniston

Jennifer would walk around her house at night and once set the alarm off: “There is one time I can actually remember. I go to the same door in my house every time and the house alarm got set off. That woke me up and scared the crap out of me!”

Louis Tomlinson

Niall Horan was shocked when his One Direction bandmate Louis got up in the middle of the night: “Louis started sleep walking and and got into my bed when we were sharing a room.”

Octavia Spencer

Octavia sleepwalks so much that she has a name for the person she becomes – Oriet – and says she is very different to her usual self: “Oriet is all business. You do not want to engage… I’ve been told that Oriet is not very nice… If they’re (guests) gonna stay for longer than a couple of days, I’ll say, ‘Just be forewarned’.”

Valentina Hayek Pinault

Salma says her young daughter Valentina suffers from night terrors and often sleepwalks: “She talks, she screams, she sings, she claps, she sleepwalks, she screams for Barney, she fights with someone. When you have a child that sleepwalks, it’s really scary. All night I’m waking up and she’s having a blast there, she’s having a party… I’m her bodyguard at night.”
