DARYL Hannah says a female ghost rescued her from a “disturbed” childhood and saved her from being put in a mental institution.
Daryl Hannah said her parents’ divorce, when she was seven, sparked difficulties.
“I wasn’t communicative and wasn’t behaving like the rest of the kids,” she told the Biography Channel’s Celebrity Ghost Stories.
“And they thought I should probably be institutionalised.”
But she said meeting the ghost, “a heavy-set Jamaican lady with a big, beautiful smile”, in her garden changed her life.
Daryl, 50, said: “I was a bit afraid of her but fascinated and every day I’d return to see her in her garden.”
