Sellers’ fear of the color was so bad that it would lead to even more screaming fits if he saw purple near him. The staff even had to ensure that Sellers never had to stay in a hotel room that contained the color purple.
And if you thought he wasn’t high-maintenance enough, he also couldn’t stand the color green. Reportedly, if someone was wearing green on set, Sellers would refuse to act alongside them.
Peter Sellers Was Superistious
Comedic actor Peter Sellers was actually afraid of a specific color. Sellers had an unfortunate reputation for being very hard to get along with. On set, he would have people fired because of the slightest whim and threw tantrums whenever things weren’t going his way.
But, along with this, he was also scared of the color purple! Apparently, Sellers was superstitious about the color being a bad omen.
Elvis Presley and His Chimp
Elvis had a pet chimpanzee. At one point in his career, Elvis acquired a pet chimpanzee which he named Scatter. The chimp had previously been part of a show on a local Memphis TV station, and when the station decided to get rid of him.
Fortunately, Elvis took him in. The king of rock let him scatter and roam free in his Graceland estate, which led to some disastrous experiences.
The animal would rip up the curtains, torment visitors, bite people, and of course, would throw...well...you know what chimps tend to do. According to his friend Lamar Fike, Elvis didn't treat his chimp the best.
Clearly, Elvis did not want to care for his pet. Sadly. the poor creature died while still in the care of Elvis and his staff.
Hepburn, The Deer Lover
Audrey Hepburn also had an unusual pet. She got along on set so well with her baby deer co-star for the film "Green Mansions" that she took her home with her. Hepburn named the deer Pippin, or just “Ip” for short.
Though she may have looked like a delicate woman, Hepburn was more than up for the challenge of raising a deer.
