From people popping out of the “table” beside the celebrities’ chair to other celebrities and of course Ellen herself, a lot of stars have been scared and while some were just not having it, some made it awesome with their reactions. With Halloween right around the corner, check out the 12 best scares Ellen DeGeneres has pulled on celebrities.
12. Cameron Diaz
Ellen DeGeneres set this up perfectly and Cameron Diaz still didn’t catch on! One time when the gorgeous actress was talking with Ellen, the host asked Diaz about turning 21 on the set of her very first film, 1994’s The Mask, and talked about the effect of Jim Carrey wearing the mask, to which Diaz replied, “He can be a scary guy anyway, because he makes crazy faces. But, when he would wear that mask would that scare you in any way.” An unsuspecting Diaz also talked about how Carrey taking the mask off was actually the scariest part and just as she said this a person dressed like The Mask crept up and growled in her face. Diaz screamed and rolled in her chair, but it quickly turned to laughter when she realized Ellen had pranked her.
