It's behind you! Halle Berry is spooked by giant spider on Ellen DeGeneres' show
By AMELIA PROUD
But she upped the ante with Halle Berry, who just revealed that an infestation of black widow spiders has taken over her home.
Scroll down to watch Halle get spooked...
Halloween comes early: Halle Berry got the fright of her life when Ellen spooked her with a man dressed as a black widow spider
The Cloud Atlas actress, 46, told DeGeneres that her gardener found a 'colony' of eight-legged creatures living under one of her lawn chairs and said she immediately left her home.
'I just left,' Berry said. 'Before I passed out I said 'I'm going to leave and you're going to have to handle that.'
'Because I can't stand spiders. I don't even like daddy long-legs.'
Obviously, given Ellen's penchant for pranks... this was a bad idea.
Seeing the funny side: Halle laughed off the prank, which was probably a relief for the poor schmuck in the spider suit
No idea: Halle was caught by surprise after admitting her weakness
After the commercial break, the talk show host had a man in a spider costume sneak up on Berry and give her the fright of her life.
'That was so mean!' Berry told DeGeneres, laughing manically.
'I'm so sorry I talked about the spiders.'
Berry revealed she is dressing up as something a lot more palatable to escort her 4-year-old daughter Nahla trick or treating - a giant cupcake.
Clenched teeth: Halle laughed but looked pretty shaken
Nahla is going to a Lalaloopsy doll.
'The things we do for our children. I love her so much that's why I’m going,' she explained.
'It’s this big huge thing [cupcake costume] and I’m going to be like waddling down the street.'
