Jamie-Lynn Sigler has a whole series of rituals for when she’s performing on stage. “When I’m in a theater show I’m very superstitious,” said Sigler to InStyle. “I do the same warm-ups. I actually wore the same underwear every show, and I washed them in between. I’m crazy superstitious like that, but not with filming, only with theater.”

Lady Gaga

Rainn Wilson

Rainn Wilson says he follows the old acting supersitions of never saying the Shakespeare play title “Macbeth” out loud in a theater, because it brings bad luck.

Emma Roberts

Emma Roberts says she doesn’t take any chances. The Nancy Drew actress says she’ll never, ever walk underneath ladders. “Don’t walk under ladders.

For luck. Someone told me to do it and I don’t remember when that was. But it’s kind of stuck.”
