Katie Holmes reveals her greatest fear

Katie Holmes revealed her greatest fear during an appearance on The Tonight Show with Jay Leno this week. When he asked the Don’t Be Afraid of the Dark actress what she’s afraid of in real life, she responded, “I’m really scared of raccoons.” Leno joked, “Why raccoons? Is it the mask? Do you think they’re criminals?” Katie answered that it was their boldness. She told Leno about an encounter with a raccoon: “I was recently sitting outside, and this raccoon comes right up, like right there. I was expecting it to be more afraid of me, and I’m staring at it, and it’s staring back like he’s going to kick my butt!” However, she took care of the situation like a trouper. She explained, “I didn’t know what to do so I stood up and barked at him. And he ran away.” Don’t Be Afraid of the Dark opens August 26th in theatres. Watch the interview below:

    She’s reasonably attractive but I wouldn’t describe her as beautiful…….Average.

    Her inner beauty shines through and adds to her outer beauty….she is herself and that is a good thing.

    She is pretty (she should have done Dark Knight) and at least her fear is a silly one. If you hang around garbabe, you are bound to attract raccoons lol.
    Joking Mr. Cruise….or am I?

    you know dividis you cannot say what katies greatest fear is if you are not her. And well Scientology may not be my thing. you have no right to judge it. Welcome to the 21st century where religious freedom is the name of the game. and bigots lose. wakey wakey Christianity no longer rules. It is a new generation and each to his own is the motto. let everybody speak for themselves and stop thinking you know everything.

    Yes if everybody has a right to speak for themselves then why are you responding to my comment the way you are? FREEDOM IS THE NAME OF THE GAME.
