Ellen DeGeneres is the ultimate scream queen — but not in the way you think. In case you’ve been living under a rock for the past few years, the longtime talk show host is known to inflict terror on her unsuspecting celebrity guests in the most hilarious ways possible.
To be fair, if we were confronted with a killer clown, we’d hide under the table, too.
“That’s it, I’m not coming back,” the Scream Queens actress jokingly told DeGeneres upon coming face to face with Michael Myers.
“You promised [you wouldn’t prank me]! Now I wet my suit,” the Today cohost jokingly said to DeGeneres.
So nice (?), the talk show host had to do it twice.
Jesse Tyler Ferguson
Nothing beats getting scared by your costar, as Ferguson found out when his Modern Family husband Eric Stonestreet snuck up behind him.
Berry: “That was so mean.”
DeGeneres: “No, it was fun!”
“Jesus, have mercy. You scared me to death,” the fitness guru said after DeGeneres jumped out at him in the bathroom.
Dwayne “The Rock” Johnson
When DeGeneres commented on The Rock’s low-key reaction, he responded: “I’m a man and a half, that didn’t scare me.”
This is how DeGeneres celebrated the country crooner’s 10th appearance on her talk show.
The Modern Family star actually jumped out of her seat, she was so freaked out.
Props to DeGeneres for scaring the singer-dancer-actress with a Yankees player lookalike à la her beau, Alex Rodriguez.
“That was the best one yet,” DeGeneres recounted of the moment she scared the singer in her dressing room.
“I haven’t been so scared in quite some time,” noted the actor of his interaction with a man dressed as a raccoon.
Because there’s nothing scarier than a larger-than-life banana, according to the actress.
“We got you real good,” said the host. She did, indeed.
