    Chastain sat down with Matt Lauer on The Today Show this week, and talked a little bit about her philosophy when it comes to a belief in ghosts.


    Things escalated from there, though, and even got a little spoopy.


    As Chastain elaborated to Page Six, "all the lights . . . the chandelier . . . bathroom lights . . . started to slowly dim, [then light] up so brightly it felt like the bulbs were gonna explode."

    "I was putting my pajamas on and the bedside lamp started to dim. Then all the lights . . . the chandelier. . .bathroom lights. . .started to slowly dim, [then light] up so brightly it felt like the bulbs were gonna explode. Then they all turned off. I stopped frozen and said, 'All right, I acknowledge you, but I am so tired, please let me sleep!'"

    Things could have gotten a little rough there, but it turns out this is the sunniest ghost story you will ever hear.


    And in case you were wondering, they did indeed let her sleep!
