Take a look at the below list of Top 10 Most Superstitious Performers in Hollywood 2017. It’s little wonder that some people become superstitious. Something happens to them, but since they had something with them, or they did something after they did it, something bad didn’t happen to them. That’s the way superstitions often start. And although many people have them, being a performer only amplifies what you might believe in. Luisiono Pavarotti used to refuse to perform unless he had a bent nail in his pocket. It might sound silly, but who are we to disagree? In any case, this is a list of the 10 most superstitious performers in Hollywood.

9. David Annable

It’s not something she even readily shows to others since one time when she did so, she dropped it. Making matters worse she did it while on an airplane and had to ask flight attendants to help her find it. Recently, however, she has adopted the four-leaf clover as her lucky sign. It’s even the logo for her new fine jewelry collection.
