Whoopi Goldberg

The comedian and host of The View is so afraid to fly, she's perfected her method of ground transportation. Hiring two drivers to work in shifts, Goldberg can get from New York to Los Angeles by bus in 23 hours. Though the funnywoman, whose fear of flying manifested when she was a young woman and witnessed a mid-air collision of two aircrafts, participates in Virgin Atlantic's course to rid herself of her fears, she still prefers her wheels on the ground. "Some people are meant to fly. I don't know if I am, but I do it now."
