For Suicide Squad, Jared Leto is doing the most to make people forget that Heath Ledger is and will forever be the best Joker on the big screen. Taking his work home with him, the Thirty Seconds To Mars frontman has apparently been terrorizing his co-stars with some pretty gruesome gifts. For Ghostbusters star Melissa McCarthy, she’s keeping her role close at heart in a different, more understandable way.

When asked about whether or not she thought ghosts were real, she admitted to believing in the presence of something more. "I think they do exist. I don’t know in what form," she toldTIME. "But I think there are things out there. I think we’ve all felt a presence or an energy where for no reason something just feels different in a place we’re familiar with."

In the X-Files universe, that would make her #TeamFoxMulder. While there might not be proof (unless you consider shows like Ghost Hunters to be real), she’s still a believer.  "I also don’t think when we’re done we just float away. I think we’re still around. I still talk to my grandparents all the time. I don’t think of them as ghosts, but I do talk to them a lot in my car. I don’t know if that makes me crazy," she added.

She might not be clear on her sanity but one thing is certain, the funny actress is returning to Stars Hollow as part of the Gilmore Girls reboot. Details remain scarce but, according to TIME, the set felt pretty familiar. "I just visited the set and everything about it felt like home. Seeing Stars Hollow, I realized I had missed it way more than I had thought," she said before adding, "I think it’s going to be great."

After nearly a decade waiting for new episodes, it better be.
