In an interview published April 4th by the Associated Press in advance of his new movie Ghost Stories, actor Martin Freeman admitted to being open to the idea of the "afterlife, and supernatural activities, and ghosts."

"If, you know, you've seen a ghost there, unless you're ruining my life by that belief, I'm going to let you have that," Freeman said.  "I don't know you haven't seen a ghost.  I literally don't know you haven't."

"So, I'm open to the existence of the afterlife, and supernatural activities, and ghosts."

When asked if he had himself experienced the paranormal, Freeman was vague in his reply, but reinforced his tolerance of beliefs in the supernatural.

"Have things happened to me?  Not many that I think, I don't know what that was about.  You know.  So, yeah, I'm open to it," he said.

Ghost Stories is a horror anthology set to debut in American theaters April 20th, wherein Freeman plays a wealthy former banker haunted by the poltergeist of his unborn child.
