From the latest Twisted History podcast:
Actress Kyra Sedgwick is reportedly terrified of talking foods and can’t stand to watch any commercials or films that feature them. Her husband Kevin Bacon once revealed the true extent of her phobia in an interview with Jay Leno.
Apparently, Bacon once had to turn down a lucrative deal with M&M because he would have been forced to appear in an advert as a giant talking sweet. “I thought about it, and I said I can’t do that to my wife, because my marriage is more important,” he said. “I really think she would’ve left me.”
This what Bacon is up to now:
Other celebrities with Phobias:

Megan Fox – Dry Paper
Apparently she can’t stand to be around dry paper of any kind, including scripts and other materials. Anything sent to her for a film has to be laminated first so that she doesn’t have to touch it. She also revealed to talk show host Jimmy Fallon that she keeps a glass of water by her bed when she’s reading so that she doesn’t have to touch the pages.
