The reason why IT: Chapter 1 became the highest-grossing horror movie of all time is because of its vicious villain Pennywise. Thanks to Bill Skarsgård's terrifying act as the clown of our wildest nightmares, Pennywise was immortalized as one of the greatest cinematic villains of all time. We got to see the scary clown in action yet again in IT: Chapter 2, which released last week and registered a staggering $91 million, in the US, during its opening weekend. The Losers Club is all grown up as Pennywise haunts their lives once again, 27 years later.

Bill Skarsgård had mostly kept away from the promotions before the release of the film to maybe not humanize Pennywise. However, now that the movie has released, we're getting plenty of Bill. During an appearance on The Late Show with Stephen Colbert, Skarsgård made a Pennywise confession that even had Stephen Colbert shocked. Since the past few years, Bill was gifted several Pennywise merchandise which he has put to good use; by keeping them in his baby daughter's room, who is only 11 months old.

"I’ve gotten a bunch of fun merch and stuff throughout the years, so her little baby room is just filled with Pennywise teddy bears," Skarsgård quipped.
