Haunted hotel haunts GervaisAugust 31st, 2008 - 1:10 pm ICT by IANS
New York, Aug 31 (IANS) English comedian Ricky Gervais got the fright of his life when publicity for his new movie, “Ghost Town”, was ruined by weird activity in a Hollywood Hotel. Gervais was recently hosting a press junket for “Ghost Town” at the Roosevelt Hotel in Los Angeles, but left in a huff when spooky happenings scared him and his team members.
The hotel has long been known as the most haunted hotel in Hollywood after years of reported ghostly sightings.
A terrified movie executive revealed that their work was disrupted by a string of supernatural occurrences.
Hollywood.com quoted a movie executive as saying: “We wanted the junkets at the Roosevelt because of its ghostly reputation. But we got so much more than we bargained for. A photo shoot we prepared was wrecked and two runners say they saw the figure of a lady in the full-length mirror.
“The final straw came when a production assistant stayed in the room earmarked for Ricky and claimed to have been freezing cold on the hottest day of the year. He said he woke up with someone whistling in his ear, even though he was alone, then heard a giggle before being pushed out of bed.”
