Roth: 'I'm A Germaphobe'
Horror filmmaker ELI ROTH avoids using public toilets - fearing he'll catch a deadly disease. The Hostel II director says his fear of germs has stemmed from childhood, but he is unable to control his growing Obsessive Compulsive Disorder. He says, "I'm on my way to getting OCD. It gets worse as I get older. I can't touch doors in public toilets, I have to wait for people to come in and out and I use my elbow to push the button on road crossings. "I once got a strange flesh-eating disease in my face. When I shaved, it took half my face off. I never get colds; I get the rare flesh-eating disease that strikes one in 10 million people."
