Mandy Moore is terrified of germs. The singer-and-actress has a phobia of microscopic nasties and takes antibacterial wipes everywhere she goes to protect her from catching infections. Mandy told Marie Claire magazine: “I’m a bit of a germ freak. I carry antibacterial and alcohol swabs with me when I travel. “I don’t think it’s a weird germophobia thing, but when you are shaking people’s hands, meeting lots of different people all the time, I don’t want to get sick. It’s as simple as that.” Mandy, 23, isn’t the only celebrity scared of germs. Gwyneth Paltrow also reportedly keeps a germ-free home. The actress - who has two children, three-year-old daughter, Apple, and a 16-month-old son, Moses, with her Coldplay star husband Chris Martin - is so paranoid about bacteria she never uses public toilets, takes her own brush to the hairdressers and scrubs hotel bathrooms before using them. Gwyneth, 34, is also said to ask visitors to remove their shoes before entering her home.
