Patricia Arquette: ‘Never Play With The Ouija Board’

LOS ANGELES (Wireless Flash - FlashNews) – Messing with the other side is not a good idea – just ask Patricia Arquette.

Arquette – who plays psychic detective Allison DuBois on the supernatural drama Medium – recalls the spooky games she played as a kid.

She says, “When I was little, I’d goof around all the time with the Ouija board, Bloody Mary, and Light As A Feather, Stiff As A Board. I don’t know why that game actually works but it does.”

The actress said she stopped her paranormal experiments when an expert on the set of her paranormal thriller Stigmata told her to “never play with the Ouija board” because it can make you vulnerable to evil spirits.

Arquette hasn’t played Ouija since, and admits, “I have fear and respect for it.”

But if her childhood Ouija experiences are telling, she doesn’t have anything to worry about.

Arquette laughs, “It was always my friends pushing the thing around. We didn’t talk to the dead. We just talked to each other.”

A new season of Medium premieres Monday (Feb. 2) on NBC.
