'Friends' actor Courteney Cox, 57, recently shared that she sold her home in Los Angeles because it was haunted. The shocking revelation came during her appearance on Jimmy Kimmel Live on Wednesday, March 1, to promote her horror-comedy 'Shining Vale'.

The 'Scream' star told Jimmy that the home she owned in Laurel Canyon used to belong to the late parody comedian Gypsy Rose Lee and legendary songwriter Carole King. Courteney revealed that when Carole King visited her house, “she said there had been a divorce that was really ugly, and there was a ghost in the house. And I was, ‘Yeah, whatever”.

Courteney confessed she “didn’t believe it at first” even after her friends informed her that “a woman was sitting on the edge of the bed”, to which she again responded, “Yeah, whatever”.

The actress said King, 80, visited her to have a séance with her to banish the spirit. However, she was awestruck by the Grammy winner's charm and only paid attention to him instead of thinking about the ghost.


The warning didn’t bother the actress until a delivery man came to her door and made spine-chilling revelations.

“I was at the house one day, not being a believer. And the doorbell rang,” she recalled. “It was a UPS guy or something, and I opened the door and he said, ‘Do you know this house is haunted?’ “And I go, ‘Yeah, why? Why do you think that?'”

He pointed out the ghostly presence behind her.
“He goes, ‘Because there is someone standing behind you,'” she said, “And I was like, ‘Let’s sell.'”


“I couldn’t sleep there alone ever again,” she confessed.

Apparently, Courteney packed her stuff and left the house soon after.

The actress's other recent credits include the horror movie 'Scream' (2022), which received positive reviews and is now streaming on Amazon, iTunes, Google Play, and Vudu. The first 'Scream' movie was released in December 1996, with 'Scream 2', 'Scream 3', and 'Scream 4' following in 1997, 2000, and 2011 respectively.
