Janet Leigh, the leading actress in Hitchcock’s masterpiece, developed a phobia of showers after watching the film. Leigh portrayed Marion, the girl who gets murdered in the iconic shower scene. Reportedly, she had trouble taking showers for decades and she only did when absolutely necessary locking all the doors and having the curtain open. The actress herself has said in an interview: “I never realized before how completely vulnerable we are. Seeing the movie and seeing how defenseless one is — you can’t see, the curtain’s shut; you can’t hear, the water’s running. You’re a sitting duck it did a number on my head.”
