Do you believe in ghosts? Have you experienced the presence of something or someone not of this world? A ghost sighting is one of those things you have to experience firsthand to believe, but these five famous people want you to know that there is a world beyond this one — and the spirits who dwell there can and will visit you whether you believe in them or not.

Halle Berry told Ebony magazine she was visited by the spirit of Dorothy Dandridge during and after filming the movie Introducing Dorothy Dandridge. Many strange things happened in the dressing room and on the set that Berry could not explain, but the most amazing incident of all was associated with a gown that once belonged to Dandridge.

After filming was completed, Halle had taken the dress to her home and kept it in her den, covered in plastic. One night, Halle heard what she described as “the sound of water boiling,” and saw a baby doll’s dress floating in mid air right in front of the dead actress’s dress. Berry ran to her bedroom and curled in a ball, crying hysterically.

Halle called one of Dandridge’s closest friends, Geri Branton, and explained what happened. Branton told her,“Honey, I talk to Dottie all the time, and if she is at your house, she means you no harm.

Berry said she decided she was only meant to use the dress for inspiration for the making of the movie, “but the time had come to give it back.”
