London: Robert Pattinson is terrified of circuses as he saw a clown die during a childhood trip.

The `Twilight` actor was left traumatised after a stunt went wrong during his first ever visit to a circus with his parents when he was a young boy, reports

"The first time I went to the circus somebody died. One of the clowns died. His little car exploded. Seriously," he said.

"Everybody ran out. It was terrifying. It`s the only time I`ve ever been to the circus," he added.

The 24-year-old star is not the only celebrity who shuns the circus. P. Diddy and Johnny Depp both suffer from Coulrophobia - a fear of clowns.
