* People used to think rabies caused this and thus named it hydrophobia. In reality it simply causes you to choke when you try to drink water.

* People used to think rabies caused this and thus named it hydrophobia. In reality it simply causes you to choke when you try to drink water. Though since it's a reflex which is incredibly painful, and can be triggered just by thinking about drinking, it's easy to see where the misconception came from.

* Music/{{ABBA}} member Agnetha Faltskog is famously afraid of flying, a fear which was exacerbated when the group's plane became caught in turbulence during the North American leg of their 1979 tour. This is one of the reasons why she rarely travels outside Sweden.

* ''Film/FromDuskTillDawn'' star SalmaHayek has a real fear of snakes, and had always refused to be near them. When she read the script, she knew that her phobia would prevent her from taking the part of Satanico Pandemonium, but Creator/RobertRodriguez conned her into thinking that Madonna was ready to take the part instead, so she spent two months with therapists in order to overcome this fear.
