Vince Vaughn Overcomes Fear of Sharks

While shooting his latest comedy flick, Couples Retreat, Vince Vaughn admits that he had to overcome a lifelong fear of sharks.

The actor admits he was a nervous wreck at having to swim in shark infested waters off the Bora Bora coast for a stunt in the movie but managed to get through it without being eaten.

“I grew up around a lake so I was uncomfortable with what might be lurking in the water,” explains Vaughn. “There were sharks and we swam with them.

“It’s like anything in life. Once you get around something, you go, ‘Oh, this is kinda cool.’ But, originally, I was like, ‘There’s no way I’m going in the ocean with a shark!’”

If you have yet to see it, Couples Retreat is worth the cost of admission.
