By now, we all know that Ellen DeGeneres finds complete joy in scaring the life out of her guests on her show. But she took it to another level when she spooked Halle Berry, who just revealed that an infestation of black widow spiders has taken over her home.
The "Cloud Atlas" actress, 46, explained to DeGeneres that her gardener found the "colony" of eight-legged creatures living under one of her lawn chairs and confessed that she immediately evacuated.
"I just left," Berry laughed. "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."
Well telling DeGeneres this was a bad idea, because after the commercial break, the beloved talk show host had a man in a spider costume sneak up on Berry and scare her nearly to death.
"That was so mean!" Berry told DeGeneres, giggling uncontrollably. "I'm so sorry I talked about the spiders."
In happier news, Berry revealed she is dressing up as a giant cupcake to escort her 4-year-old daughter, Nahla, trick-or-treating. Nahla is being a Lalaloopsy doll.
"The things we do for our children. I love her so much that's why I’m going," Berry shared of her Halloween duties. "It’s this big huge thing [cupcake costume] and I’m going to be like waddling down the street."
