Halle Berry was forced to evacuate her home in Hollywood recently when a gardener uncovered a colony of black widow spiders under a lawn chair in her pool area.

Spiders forced Halle Berry out of home

The Oscar-winning Monster's Ball star admits she freaked out when she realised the poisonous spiders were living beneath a chair she used every other day - and fled the house until they had been destroyed.

She says: "(There were) hundreds under this lawn chair that we would all sit on around the pool every other day.

"We found out there was a whole village, a colony of black widows... One of the gardeners decided he should clean it and when he looked under it it was like, 'Argh!'

"I just left... I said, 'I'm gonna leave and you're gonna have to handle that because I can't stand spiders...' I don't even like Daddy Long Legs."

During a recent appearance on comedienne Ellen DeGeneres' US talk show, Berry faced her fear of bugs up close, when she was spooked by a man dressed up as a cockroach.

She yelped and swore when the costumed guy crept up on her while she was chatting to prankster DeGeneres.
