A superstition is an irrational belief or practice resulting from ignorance, fear of the unknown, trust in magic or chance, or a false conception of causation. It’s no surprise to discover that celebrities have irrational beliefs! They may be beautiful, lucky, and wealthy. But it doesn’t mean that they are always (or ever) rational. I’m sure many of them believe that their amazing luck is a result of their superstitions.
Anyway, I’ve culled through many websites to find 21 female celebrities who are supposedly superstitious about something or other. I have no idea if any of these “facts” are true. But if the Internet says they’re true, who am I to doubt? If they are true, please don’t think any less of them. They are so cute!
