During a recent interview with Ellen DeGeneres, the actor revealed that she thinks her house is haunted — but don't worry, it's not as scary as it sounds.
According to Octavia, her house was previously owned by an actor who appeared in Westerns: "I grew up watching Westerns, and I bought this house, and it was owned by a guy who did Westerns, so I must have been a fan of his.”
She also said she thinks of the ghost as her "protector." “I love him, because he kind of sorts out the bad people that shouldn’t be there,” she explained. “He runs them out. If they stay at my place, they don’t wanna come back. And that’s how I know that they don’t belong here.”
“If you’re a person that belongs there, everybody is like, ‘Oh, your place is so welcoming. It’s so great.’ And that’s how I feel about it.”
Octavia also claimed that the ghost only acts "a little shady" if she leaves the house for an extended period of time. “The doors close; the lights go off when I turn them on," she explained.
Overall, she's pretty cool with her ghost — just, don't bring your ghosts around her place. "I love my ghost. I just don’t want you bringing your ghost to my house," Octavia claimed. "I don’t want anybody’s ghost thinking they can be friends with my ghost."
"My ghost can haunt me, but he doesn’t haunt me. We have boundaries."
