Musicians, actors, politicians, and other famous names all like to turn on the TV and watch their favorite colors. There are even plenty of athletes who like certain squads. Let’s find out which stars love which teams. There is at least one here for every member of the NFL, even the Lions.
Buffalo Bills: Wolf Blitzer
While they have been shrugging off their poor history in the last few years, the Buffalo Bills still aren't one of the most popular teams in the NFL — not even close. However, famous CNN reporter Wolf Blitzer is a proud supporter. His parents escaped from the Holocaust and settled in Buffalo, Wolf was born right after, and he grew up going to Bills' games with his father.
They were some of the most treasured moments of his childhood. Blitzer can name every Bills great and can even recall trying to watch the Bills vs. Giants Super Bowl while covering Desert Storm in 1991.
Miami Dolphins: Darius Rucker
He's the lead singer of Hootie and the Blowfish, and he has some odd fandoms, just like he has an odd band name. Rucker grew up in Charleston, South Carolina, making him a South Carolina Gamecocks fan, yet he also roots for the Cincinnati Reds and the Miami Dolphins.
If you're a big Hootie fan, you'll recognize the lyrics “I'm such a baby because the Dolphins make me cry” from “Only Wanna Be With You.” While we all like marine life, this is a direct reference to Rucker's fandom. Rucker has even named one of his daughters Daniella after Dolphins legend Dan Marino. Marino returns the favor and calls himself a fan of Rucker.
New York Jets: Adam Sandler
A native New Yorker, Sandler had a tough decision to make: Gang Green or Big Blue? He grew up in Brooklyn, which skewed Jets, and that's where he landed. Lots of his movies have elements from the Jets sprinkled about, such as when Satan is a Jets fan in “Little Nicky.” He took things even further in “Mr. Deeds” when his character straight-up bought the entire team.
It isn't uncommon to catch a glimpse of this Hollywood face on the sidelines or to relax in a cushy box seat at games, though Sandler hasn't been much of a good luck charm for the team as of late.
Baltimore Ravens: Michael Phelps
The Baltimore native and twenty-three-time Olympic gold medalist Phelps has been a Ravens fan all his life. Even when Phelps was at the 2016 Olympics, he brought out his fandom when he spotted a reporter at a press conference who was wearing Steelers apparel.
The Ravens-Steelers rivalry is a tense one, and Phelps commented that he always thinks the Ravens will beat Pittsburgh, turning the train of thought at the conference into a completely different sport. Phelps is good friends with Ravens legend Ray Lewis and spoke to him at length before retiring from competitive swimming.
Pittsburgh Steelers: Wiz Khalifa
Though it might be a little hard to tell if you don't know his music, rapper Wiz Khalifa is a gargantuan Steelers fan. If you are familiar, you know that one of his big 2010 songs, “Black and Yellow,” refers to the main colors of the Steelers. While the song doesn't mention the Steelers directly, it does refer to all of the Pittsburgh pro teams.
Khalifa, a Pittsburgh native, has even spent some time with famous ex-Steeler Le'Veon Bell. While he (Bell) was sitting out the 2018 season, Khalifa invited Bell into the studio with him to record.
Indianapolis Colts: David Letterman
As funny as he is, Letterman's Colts fandom is no laughing matter. While most fans can't do much more than enjoy the games, Letterman's status as a celebrity has allowed him to take part in team events.
He gave a speech in 2017 when the Colts unveiled a statue of Peyton Manning. It was only a five-minute speech, but Letterman packed plenty of jokes into it at the expense of both Manning and the city of Indianapolis. Manning has also been a frequent guest on the Letterman show, thanks to David's fandom.
Jacksonville Jaguars: Bill Murray
Your mind might go to Jason Mendoza from 'The Good Place' when it comes to Jacksonville superfans, but a more surprising (and less fictional) name is that of Bill Murray. He's a big sports fan in general, joining fans of most Illinois teams.
It's strange to hear he's a fan of the Jags, despite being an Illinois native, but he's been a follower since the early 2000s. He's been to training camp and even helped a former coach, Jack Del Rio, break down film. No one is really sure why Murray is a fan of this team, but Murray loves his sports, so he's sure to have a good reason.
Houston Texans: George W. Bush
Hard to get a bigger fan than a president, even a former one. Both George Junior and his later father, George H. W. Bush, called themselves fans of Texas's AFC team. The Bush family has long-standing allegiances to sports in the area and were once even owners of the Texas Rangers. They took a strong liking to the Texans.
When Bush's senior's health began to decline, he was still a frequent sight at home games, sometimes coming out onto the field in a golf cart. When Bush senior passed, the team held a moment of silence in recognition of his support for the franchise.
Tennessee Titans: Faith Hill and Tim McGraw
Since the Titans play their home games in the country music Mecca of Tennessee, it's only natural that some famous singers and songwriters will become big fans. However, recording great Tim McGraw has been a fan of the franchise ever since it was known as the Houston Oilers, long before moving to Nashville.
McGraw and his wife Faith Hill both grew up in the south, meaning their love of football is deep, and they've loved having a team in their hometown. Hill was even chosen to sing the national anthem in the Super Bowl in January of 2000.
Denver Broncos: Lindsey Vonn
Denver is known as the Mile-High City, and thanks to the mountains and winter sports so popular in the area, one of the Broncos' biggest fans is champion downhill skier Lindsey Vonn. She's one of the world's most accomplished skiers — she's considered the second-best downhill skier EVER.
She's also no ordinary Broncos fan. She became a fan at age twelve and often speaks at length about how much she loves the team. She spends time on the sidelines, often meeting with players and staff. When she had to rehabilitate her knee in 2013 after an injury, she got to meet Von Miller, who was recovering from a similar injury.
Los Angeles Chargers: Nick Cannon
Nick Cannon is a unique fan on this list because he's had to put his fandom behind him. He was a diehard Chargers fan while they were in San Diego, but since their move to Los Angeles, he's spoken out about how much it hurt for the team to betray him like this.
He's publicly declared he will no longer be supporting the Chargers and has announced his new team is the Carolina Panthers. Based on their attendance since they made a move, the Chargers have lost a lot of fans — it's going to happen any time a team uproots that way.
Kansas City Chiefs: Paul Rudd
The comedic actor has made a name for himself recently, but he also gained a lot of attention for his sports fandoms. He followed the Royals closely while on their way to the World Series in 2015, and he's done just as much cheering for the Chiefs.
While Rudd was born in New Jersey, his family moved to Kansas when he was ten, and he attended the local university. He gained a strong appreciation for all of the sports teams in the area. He holds nothing back when displaying his love for his teams, and when the NFL show “Hard Knocks” focused on the Chiefs in 2017, he was able to be the narrator for the entire season.
Oakland Raiders: Ice Cube
Rapper and actor Ice Cube grew up in Los Angeles, which was one of the places the Raiders have called home. He was a teen when they arrived in 1982, and despite the team moving north to Oakland following the 1994 season, he's been a huge fan ever since.
He calls himself the president of Raider Nation and helped the team produce the documentary “Straight Outta L.A.” He supports the team moving to Las Vegas since it's closer to their SoCal roots. It doesn't matter where they play or what they call themselves; this cool customer will be lending his voice to the team.
Dallas Cowboys: LeBron James
Athletes supporting athletes, you love to see it. You'd expect this Ohio native to root for the Bengals or Browns, or even the Dolphins after all his time in Miami, but King James loves him some Cowboys. He's often seen wearing the blue star of the Dallas team and will sometimes spend time with Jerry Jones.
LeBron got some backlash when he visited the Rams' locker room after they beat the Cowboys in the playoffs since he now lives in Los Angeles, but he still considers himself a big Cowboys fan, and that's good enough for us.
Philadelphia Eagles: Bradley Cooper
Cooper wasn't acting in “Silver Linings Playbook.” Well, he was, but his Eagles fandom was all real. He grew up in Philadelphia and has been an Eagles fan his entire life. He isn't really the rowdy fan he portrayed in the movie — he usually sits with Eagles owner Jeffrey Lurie during the biggest games, such as when they won against the Patriots in Super Bowl LII.
You might have seen him on TV. The Eagles have utilized Cooper's love of the team, asking him to do voiceover work for hype videos. You don't get to do that unless you're a big, big fan.
New England Patriots: Mark Wahlberg
Few celebrities are as tied to a specific city as Mark Wahlberg is to Boston. He's a huge Patriots fan — even though the team is from “New England,” their stadium is in Boston. The Patriots have plenty of celebrity fans, being one of the biggest teams in the NFL, but few are more outspoken in their fandom than Marky Mark.
He's been a Pats fan all his life, having grown up in Boston. He put a big bet on the Pats to win Super Bowl LII, though the Eagles managed to win that certain game. Wahlberg has stated that he also placed a small bet on the Eagles just in case and was able to cover his losses. Smart.
Cincinnati Bengals: George Clooney
You wouldn't expect Clooney, a Hollywood A-lister if there ever is one, to wave the flag for a smaller team like the Bengals, but here we are. Clooney actually spent most of his childhood in either northern Kentucky or Ohio — no team in Kentucky, meaning it was Bengals all the way. Whenever he's in the area, he likes to take in a game or two.
He's such a big fan that when he ran into longtime Baltimore Raven Ed Reed (the Ravens and Bengals are fierce rivals), Clooney told Reed, “You hurt me bad.” Reed's response was simply: “They hurt themselves!”
Cleveland Browns: Condoleezza Rice
Yes, it's true; even the Browns have their share of celeb fans. This former Secretary of State has been a fan even through the darkest times of the franchise. Rice is actually a pretty big overall fan of football, having served on the College Football Playoff Committee.
She's such a big fan of the Browns, in fact, that there were rumors she was being considered for a coaching job in their unforgettably bad 2017 season. The rumors turned out to be just that, though Rice says she did offer to call a play or two and never put the team in a preventive defense.
New York Giants: Daniel Radcliffe
Though he grew up in England, the actor behind Harry Potter loves some American football. Radcliffe has publicly acknowledged that he is a Giants fan. The reasoning for this is he was starring as a character named J. Pierrepont Finch in the Broadway play “How to Succeed in Business Without Really Trying,” and spent some time getting to know the sport, developing a liking.
While he admits it's a bit strange for someone across the pond to enjoy the sport so much, he's quite well-informed about the details and isn't scared to admit he's crazy about the bluer of the two New York teams.
Washington Redskins: Kevin Durant
Durantula grew up in the nation's capital, and despite going to college in Texas and spending most of his career in Oklahoma City, he's still a big fan of the Team.
He's still a fan of his chosen squad even after the name change, though there was a little bit of trouble in paradise when it seemed like he was switching his allegiance to the Rams. (Why is it always the Rams?) Still, he put all fears to rest when he trolled Golden State teammate Steph Curry — a Panthers fan — after the team put the Panthers in their place. That's loyalty.
Chicago Bears: Barack Obama
While Obama's sports fandom is mainly focused on basketball, the former president of the United States still pulls for the Chicago Bears after spending most of his life (and beginning his political career) in the Windy City. He was originally a Steelers fan, but becoming a Senator from Illinois changed his allegiances fast.
Every time he invited the Super Bowl winners to the White House, he found a way to mention his Bears fandom. While the Bears haven't been doing great recently, he did get to retroactively invite the 1985 Bears since their original visit was canceled after the Challenger space shuttle disaster.
Detroit Lions: Kid Rock
Kid Rock's real name is Robert James Ritchie, and he's both a proud Michigan native and a monumental fan of all the Michigan sports teams. Even after he moved away from Detroit, he has never let his fandom wither.
He often wears Lions gear and is a common sight on the sidelines at Lions games. He's been an honorary captain for the team, and Pepsi asked Kid Rock to record an anthem for the Lions in 2012, which gave the team a much-needed shot in the arm following their 2008 season, which was the first time a team had gone 0-16.
Green Bay Packers: Erin Andrews
While Andrews is a sideline reporter for the entire league, her allegiances lie with America's Team, the Green Bay Packers. She remains impartial as part of her day job, but she has dressed up as Packers player Clay Matthews during Halloween — while working, even.
It's unsure why Andrews, who grew up in Florida, loves the team so much, but she isn't scared to show her fandom. There were rumors she was dating star QB Aaron Rodgers, but the rumors turned out to be false. If she did ever have a chance, it passed since Rodgers is in a relationship with actress Shailene Woodley. Plus, Aaron dating Erin is weird, and we're not going to pretend it isn't.
Minnesota Vikings: Josh Duhamel
He's a Minot, North Dakota native, but actor Josh Duhamel still roots for purple. North Dakota doesn't have its own team, so it's no big surprise. Duhamel has Norwegian in his blood and has even been inducted into the Scandinavian-American Hall of Fame, which is a real thing, apparently. Because of this, he might feel a connection to the Vikings.
He's described being a Vikings fan as “disappointing” and “frustrating,” but even when he moved to Hollywood, he realized how much he missed rooting for his home team, and his appreciation for the seeming eternal underdogs hasn't waned.
Tampa Bay Buccaneers: Dick Vitale
A basketball sportscaster and former college head coach, Dick Vitale can't stop loving sports. He lives in Tampa and is a season ticket holder for the Bucs. If you think he brings enthusiasm when he's talking about basketball, you should see him cheer for the pewter pirates.
He's a huge homer, and his fandom was rewarded when Brady led the team to a Super Bowl win over the Chiefs. He does tend to go overboard, such as when he had the chance to announce one of Tampa Bay's draft picks in 2016 and tried to say that they had drafted...him.
Atlanta Falcons: Samuel L. Jackson
When people think of sports and Samuel L. Jackson, they think of the Raptors. However, thanks to his time at Morehouse College in Atlanta, he's a big fan of the Falcons, too. In fact, while he was in college, he worked at the concession stand during Falcon's games.
He's made it onto the sidelines a number of times and also loves to appear in team commercials. Jackson's knowledge of the game is so impressive that if for some reason, he decides to stop acting, he could probably get into coaching and do a pretty good job of it, too.
Carolina Panthers: Steph Curry
While you might think that the 49ers or the Raiders would get Curry's support, it's actually the other coast that has his fandom. He attended college at the small Davidson College in North Carolina — and both he and his wife grew up in Charlotte.
He's a Panthers fan for life. Take a look at his socials, and you'll see him rocking Panthers' gear all the time or appearing on the sidelines. He has sneakers in Panthers colors and often wears a Panthers jersey when the Warriors practice. That's much more than just the token amount of dedication.
New Orleans Saints: Brad Pitt
He has six children and two ex-wives, but Brad Pitt still, somehow, has the time to cheer on his favorite team. He's a big fan of the Saints, and in particular, he's a huge supporter of now-retired quarterback Drew Brees.
Pitt has called Brees one of the best quarterbacks in the league, something echoed by many, and constantly defends him against critics. The two even became friends after they once met on neighboring balconies in the French Quarter. While Brees is no longer going to be playing on the field, Pitt is still pulling for the Saints big time.
San Francisco 49ers: Marissa Miller
Though by no means the only famous 49ers fan, Marissa Miller is likely the most attractive. This model and actress grew up in Santa Cruz, quite close to San Fran, and attended plenty of 49ers games through the eighties as a joint hobby with her father.
The 49ers were the team to beat the entire decade, which made it easy for Miller to enjoy watching them. Jack Reynolds, Michael Carter, Jerry Rice, Joe Montana, Ronnie Lott...the list of incredible players on the team at that time goes on. She called John Taylor's super bowl catch one of her favorite memories ever. “It was the first time I saw adults act like children.”
Arizona Cardinals: Blake Shelton
Born in Oklahoma and finding stardom in Nashville, country music star Blake Shelton is a fan of the Arizona team. While he says the story of how he became a fan is pretty long, he sometimes sums it up by saying, “it happened.”
He's friends with Steve Keim, wide receiver and team owner. Shelton even did his part to get the team to draft current quarterback Kyler Murray by jokingly threatening to choke Keim with his guitar if they didn't take the QB with the number-one pick in the 2019 draft. Thankfully, they did, which meant the guitar is safe.
Los Angeles Rams: Kendrick Lamar
The Rams have moved around a bunch of times, and now that they're back in their original home, Los Angeles, they have plenty of famous fans. Few are as intense in their love of the team as Kendrick Lamar is.
After the team moved to LA, Lamar was there on day one of training camp. Thanks to his big name, he got to run a route during the team's practice. Here's the big thing to know, however: when the Rams moved west, they were not a great team. Lamar wasn't just a fair-weather fan — he's the real deal.
Seattle Seahawks: Macklemore
There are plenty of big names who consider themselves the twelfth man when it comes to Seahawks home games. The unofficial honor of “Twelfth Man” belongs to Macklemore, a rapper famous for “Thrift Shop.” He's a Seattle native, and he had the opportunity to create a promo video for the team.
He has plenty of competition for the biggest Seahawks celebrity fan, such as Chris Pratt and Rainn Wilson, but he is a perfect choice; not only is he the most passionate, but both the team and the rapper have lost a lot of fame recently. Oh, zing.
Chicago Bears: Vince Vaughn
This famous fast talker and actor is a big fan of all things Chicago. While that does mean the good, like the architecture, museums, and deep-dish, it also means the Chicago Bears. He's frequently seen at games in private boxes and had the chance to become a small part of the team's history when he narrated the Bears' “30 for 30” film on ESPN.
It makes a lot of sense. While Vince has been in some big works, he's just not a contender for best actor, just like how every once in a while the Bears do well enough to reach the playoffs but never do much else. He also loves the Cubs.
Los Angeles Rams: Ty Burrell
As the happy-go-lucky father of “Modern Family,” Ty Burrell is pretty pleased with his job as an actor. However, he's said that if the Rams came calling and needed him to help the team, he would leave acting behind with a smile on his face.
Burrell has attended practices, he's had the chance to suit up for the team in a full uniform (though, of course, he never made it to the field), and he was the Rams' representative at the 2014 NFL draft. Even after the team moved to Los Angeles, Burrell is right there — he probably likes it more since it's near Hollywood.
Philadelphia Eagles: The Roots
The Roots are the house band for “The Tonight Show With Jimmy Fallon,” which means that even though they work and live in New York City, all of these guys are Philly natives and root for the birds.
Not only do all the members often step out in Eagles gear — and in NYC, that can sometimes be a dangerous prospect — they also performed at the 2018 NFC championship that the Eagles hosted. There's a great video of them all celebrating when the Eagles won the Super Bowl at the end of the 2018 season.
Seattle Seahawks: Chris Pratt
Just when you think you know a guy, you find out he's a fan of the Seahawks, and it ruins everything. The actor behind schlubby Andy Dwyer and Marvel Cinematic Universe hero Star-Lord may have played a dyed-in-the-wool Indianapolis Colts fan, but in real life, he pulls for Seattle.
He not only enjoys their production on the field, but he also appreciates how the players, especially quarterback Russell Wilson, help out the community and support helpful organizations, such as how Wilson visits local hospitals to brighten kids' days after surgeries. There's no denying it — that's something to admire.
Buffalo Bills: Chad Michael Murray
The former “One Tree Hill” actor has stood by his team his entire life, even during their seventeen-year playoff drought, which ended just last year. The Bills haven't had much success lately, but that does mean anybody who remained a fan through the long dark era is sure to be a fan for life.
Murray often expresses his support for the team both at games, wearing their bright primary colors and amping them up on social media. There were plenty of bandwagoners cheering them on, but CMM was one of the originals.
Carolina Panthers: Brooklyn Decker
Since she grew up in a suburb of Charlotte, it's no surprise Decker is a big backer of the Panthers. This model and actress has even taken to Twitter to try and recreate flamboyant quarterback Cam Newton's memorable outfits for post-game pressers.
Decker also pulls for the North Carolina Tar Heels, keeping her cheering for her home state. To no one's surprise, this beauty is always ready to pull for her team and has also had the opportunity to model for some of the Panther's women's official apparel. No matter what she's doing, she's always cheering for Carolina, and she's always ready to pounce on someone who has bad things to say about them.
Cleveland Browns: Brad Paisley
The Browns have a strong fanbase, surprisingly. But anybody who has stuck with them through the tough times they've been having recently deserves the title of “Real Fan.” Three-time Grammy-winning country music star Brad Paisley is part of that collection.
He grew up in West Virginia, but he was even a Browns fan back then, dressing up as famous Browns quarterback Brian Sipe more than once for Halloween. He attended the team's training camp in 2018, and no doubt he's thrilled that the team has pulled itself out of the gutter thanks to quarterback Baker Mayfield. Maybe Paisley will be dressing up again this Halloween.
Houston Texans: Simone Biles
Long before she won four gold medals in Rio during the 2016 Summer Olympics, she had the chance to announce two of the Texans' draft picks. After her success at the Olympics, she even became an honorary member of the team's cheerleading squad in 2017.
Winning a gold medal for the United States might not have been anything compared to being able to cheer for her favorite football team during a home game. Being born and growing up in Spring, Texas — a suburb of Houston — she's been pulling for the Texans her entire life — or at least once the team was founded, two years after she was born.
Indianapolis Colts: Rob Lowe
Just like his character on “Parks and Recreation,” Rob Lowe is a big Indy fan. In fact, he's not only a fan; he's a friend of Colts owner Jim Irsay and even had the chance to break the news that former Colts QB Peyton Manning would be retiring...which turned out not to be true.
He's no fair-weather fan; he can be spotted at a lot of their home games, whether they're on their way to the Super Bowl or tanking for the number one pick. If you spot him around Hollywood, there's a good chance he'll have some blue on him.
Jacksonville Jaguars: Gene Hackman
Hackman hasn't been a fan of the Jags for his entire life, but he started adding his voice to the roars when his friend Jack Del Rio became the head coach for eight years, starting in 2003. The Oscar-winning actor still pulls for the Jags, though he stays pretty quiet about it. Overall, being of an older generation that doesn't have as much of a presence on social media.
The Jaguars have been enjoying a growing fanbase in recent years, teasing at the edges of the playoffs and sneaking in every once in a while. We wonder, does Hackman ever show up to watch a game?
Denver Broncos: Trey Parker and Matt Stone
These two “South Park” creators are from Colorado, which not only tracks with their famous adult cartoon creation but also with their sports allegiances. They're known to mention both Broncos quarterback John Elway (a Super Bowl winner and now president of the same team) and Jay Cutler (who was drafted by the Broncos before going on to throw lots of interceptions for the Bears.)
“South Park,” while being wild at times, is still somewhat grounded in reality, so sports figures from the area often get mentioned. Plus, the characters all have a good dose of Broncos gear in their homes.
Washington Football Team: Matthew McConaughey
While this famous actor is Texas-born and raised, he actually pulls for one of the Cowboys' biggest rivals, the Football Team. The answer is simple: he was four years old, and he liked hamburgers. It tracks so far. Number fifty-five in Washington was, at the time, Chris Hanburger. At four years old, the choice was clear.
He recalls his parents allowing him to stay up late as a child so he could watch Washington play during prime time and also remembers skipping church to listen to his preferred team on the radio of his parent's car. Despite rooting for a dangerous team in Texas, he is a stalwart in his fandom.
Pittsburgh Steelers: Snoop Dogg
Snoop is the kind of guy that knows what he likes. Even though he grew up in Long Beach, California, he's been a big fan of the Steelers ever since he was a kid in the seventies. Some have thrown the bandwagon fan accusation at him, but he knows his stuff.
He isn't afraid to celebrate the team's successes and equally unabashed in his comments when something goes poorly — he's called out coaches and players in his Instagram videos. He says that it was the Mean Joe Green Coca-Cola commercial that turned him on to the franchise, and he greatly enjoyed watching the vaunted defense push opponents around on the field.
New York Jets: George R. R. Martin
“Song of Ice and Fire” author Martin is a big fan of football. His main team is the New York Jets, but he also roots for the Giants, from the same city (sort of, since the Jets actually play in New Jersey). He frequently writes about them on his blog. At least he's getting something written these days.
He also visited the Jets during their 2018 training camp. He's even worked some of his teams into his books, including when a knight with a blue star emblem (representing the Cowboys) is stomped flat by...a Giant. Good old-fashioned fan sniping.
Miami Dolphins: Jennifer Lopez
Lopez isn't just a fan of the team from Miami — when her then-husband Marc Anthony became a part-owner of the team in 2009, so did she. Anthony joked that the hardest part of becoming a part-owner was getting the approval of Lopez's father, an ardent Jets fan.
When the pair got divorced only a few years after the purchase of the team, in 2011, and Anthony kept the shares, Lopez still seems to have some sort of fandom for the Dolphins, though she seems busier keeping her career going strong, and managing whether or not she's married, engaged, dating, or single and loving it.
Los Angeles Chargers: Phil Mickelson
Since they've moved, a good amount of the star power that had tied themselves to the team fell away, whether it was because they were just hanging on to the bandwagon or because they were actually upset at the move. However, this PGA name remains a big fan despite the team packing up and relocating.
Mickelson, nicknamed Lefty, has won forty-four events on the PGA tour, including five major championships. He's a friend of Chargers owner Dean Spanos, and though he didn't endear himself to the San Diego fans, he still makes it down to the field during halftime every once in a while.
Green Bay Packers: Lil' Wayne
The Packers actually have quite a number of celeb fans, including Justin Timberlake and Harry Styles, but one of the biggest is rapper Lil' Wayne. Let's put it this way — have you put out a bangin' hype song about your favorite team? Even those who don't like hip-hop or rap that much can't help but groove to “Green and Yellow,” which came out early in 2021.
Weezy grew up in the New Orleans area, but when he watched the Packers beat the Pats in Super Bowl XXXI, he was a fan for life. When he was a kid, if he saw something with the Packers on it, he had to have it.
Los Angeles Rams: Daniel Dae Kim
Despite not even being born in the states – he's from South Korea originally – Daniel Dae Kim has joined the millions of others who love cheering on their favorite team. Seeing as how he's a famous actor, and now there are a few teams that call Los Angeles home, he picked the Rams as his favorites.
While it seems too easy just to call him a bandwagon fan, it turns out that Kim even watched the Rams while he was spending time in his childhood country. Of course, he also got to watch them win a Super Bowl, as this picture attests.
Detroit Lions: Eminem
Marshall Mathers, known by the entire rap world as Eminem, is well-known for being from Detroit. If he's a football fan, that can only mean one thing: He's a fan of the Detroit Lions. Poor guy. The Lions haven't seen a lot of success in the last...well, ever.
Still, they have their collection of die-hard fans that will step out in silver and blue for every home game. As we can see in this pic, Eminem has even had the chance to toss the coin before one of the games, and as a native son of Motor City, we're sure it was an exciting moment.
Minnesota Vikings: Chris Jericho
Born in the United States and raised in Canada for part of his life, Chris Jericho has a love for all things North. The Vikings hail from the NFC North, so why not? While he hasn't been able to watch his team win the big game (the Vikings are still 0-4 in that category), he's at least been able to watch them field some good teams in the past decade.
They haven't really done anything noteworthy with those teams, but winning the Super Bowl is hard, no matter how many Tom Bradys you have on your team. Has Jericho ever thought of joining the team? At his age...probably not anymore.
New York Giants: LL Cool J
LL Cool J is a rapper, songwriter, record producer, actor, and football fan. That's everything, right? Right. Well, he just so happens to be a big fan of the New York Giants. Since he was born in the state of New York and now tends to spend most of his time in the big city, it's only natural that he'd latch onto one of the three teams from the state.
He's such a big fan that he even released a song with producer and DJ Z-Trip following the Giant's victory in 2012 named “Super Baller.” Making a song about a team is a surefire way to prove you're in it for the long run.
Los Angeles Rams: Taran Killam
Born in Culver City in California, Taran Killam was a Rams fan from a young age. It must have been hard, seeing as how the Rams had been in St. Louis from 1995 to 2015, but now they're back where they belong.
Just don't let anybody know that Killam was briefly a Raiders fan – mostly during the time when Bo Jackson played for them, and it's not like we can blame him. However, now that the Rams have returned home, he's fully blue and yellow.
San Francisco 49ers: Jeremy Renner
A member of the Avengers and a talented actor, Jeremy Renner chooses to put his fandom behind one of the classic teams: the 49ers from California. Renner was born in Modesto, California, and he spent most of his life there up until graduating college, even attending Modesto Junior College.
Modesto isn't far at all from San Fran, so Renner is simply rooting for his hometown option. He's been to plenty of games, and he even narrated one episode of the NFL Network documentary series “The Timeline.”
Tampa Bay Buccaneers: Hulk Hogan
Perhaps the most well-known and historic professional wrestler the world has ever seen comes from down south in Florida, but Hulk Hogan still had a couple of options to choose from. He could have gone with the Dolphins or the Jags, but Hogan is actually from the Tampa Bay area, which means his allegiance was to the red and pewter.
While we're sure he's made some trips onto the field, in this picture he's content to have some fun in the stands with the Bucc's mascot, Captain Fear. We bet that guy is glad he's in a big fuzzy suit after being manhandled in such a way.
Washington Commanders: Taylor Kitsch and Josh Brolin
We get a double dose of celebrity power in this picture, which is taking place at a Washington Commanders home game. Taylor Kitsch is a Canadian actor and model who is best known for playing Tim Riggins in “Friday Night Lights.” No wonder he decided to start rooting for a team. He's also been in a number of movies.
If you don't recognize the face of Brolin, just imagine him in purple makeup and fighting against all of the Avengers. Brolin was born and raised in California, so we're unsure why he chooses to root for a team that is literally on the other side of the country.
Los Angeles Rams: Jessica Alba
You might not think so, but it turns out that Jessica Alba is a pretty big Los Angeles Rams fan. This picture has her with her parents at what looks like a playoff game from the 2021 season, but there are lots of other pics of her repping her favorite team in jerseys, in hats, at games, and more.
Though she and her family did move around the country a lot while she was a kid, she was born in Pomona California. The fact that she had to spend so much time in hospitals for a long list of maladies might have given her time to watch football, too.
Washington Commanders: Jeffrey Wright
Acting since 1990 and appearing in big projects like “Casino Royale,” “The Hunger Games,” and “Westworld,” Jeffrey Wright is also a huge fan of the Washington Commanders. He's a major advocate, having been born in the city, and his social media is littered with posts about the team.
As we can see here, he was all in on Robert Griffin the third, even if that experiment didn't turn out the way most people hoped. The Commanders might be in a bit of a slump for a couple of reasons, but Wright will always be right there to cheer them on.
Washington Commanders: Dale Earnhardt Jr.
When people talk about stock-car royalty, the Earnhardt family is almost certainly the first name that comes to mind. It turns out that Dale Earnhardt Jr's mind is mostly on the Washington Commanders. He's said that if the team loses, it has a noticeable effect on his week, and during race season he has to try and keep his focus on his job driving laps.
He grew up dreaming of playing quarterback for his favorite team, but at the age of sixteen he was 5' 3”. Nobody is getting onto a professional team with that kind of stature.
Washington Commanders: Taraji P. Henson
Taraji P. Henson has been collecting awards and accolades since she started acting (and singing) in 1992, including being the first African-American woman to win a Critic's Choice Television Award for Best Actress in a Drama Series. She's also a fan of the team from her hometown, the Washington Commanders.
Born in D.C., of course, Henson would latch on to the team that was closest if she decided to start rooting for a team. However, it's a little more personal than that. It turns out her father was a janitor for the team. That's a pretty good reason to keep rooting.
Los Angeles Rams: Magic Johnson
It's no surprise that an athlete that is such a big part of the Los Angeles scene (both literally and figuratively) is a fan of one of the city's football clubs. In fact, he was the first official person to make the purchase of season tickets when the Rams moved back to Los Angeles.
Despite growing up in Michigan, Johnson is all in when it comes to the Rams. He even takes his family along for the ride – in this picture, the Johnson family got to watch the Rams beat up the 49ers, something everybody can enjoy.
Washington Commanders: Denny Hamlin
As a huge fan of Joe Gibbs (head coach for the Washington team from 1981 to 1992), Denny Hamlin was pleased as a punch to find out that he would be a driver for Joe Gibbs racing.
Hamlin was such a big fan that he got Gibbs to sign a Washington Super Bowl hat in 1992, lost it almost right away, and then managed to get a replacement hat and have Gibbs – now his boss, sort of – sign it again. That's what you call enduring fandom.
Washington Commanders: Jon Bernthal
If you've ever seen a Jon Bernthal acting job, you probably watched him tear some poor losers to shreds. But he's plenty nice to his favorite team, the Washington Commanders. He was born in Washington D.C., and he's a fan of them to the bitter end, no matter how many quarterbacks they go through in a season.
Even if he's overseas at an acting job, he does his best to find a way to watch the games, despite them most likely being on at night where he's stationed. For any football fans that are across the pond, that can mean a big commitment.
Cleveland Browns: Machine Gun Kelly
Mostly known for his rapping skills, white hair, and his relationship with Megan Fox – Machine Gun Kelly isn't a huge sports fan, but he's going to rep the Browns until he's over and out. He's from Cleveland, which is a pretty classic way to have a team to cheer for.
Honestly, that's generally how it works. He loves cheering the scrappy, near-constant team on, and he's even been able to perform at the stadium at least once. We love hearing about famous fans that cheer for underdog teams – you know they're true.
Los Angeles Rams: Sarah Michelle Gellar
Since the age of four, Sarah Michelle Gellar has been an actress. She was on some teen dramas and soaps, and then she broke out as the main character in the “Buffy the Vampire Slayer” series. According to this picture, she's also a fan of the Los Angeles Rams, but we're sure that isn't just because everybody else in Hollywood is cheering for them.
She was born in New York, but she's been part of Hollywood for a long time, so by liking a team (or a couple of teams) now calling the glitzy city home, she's taking the chance to see some games.
Cincinnati Bengals: Kevin Youkilis
Born in Cincinnati, Ohio, Kevin Youkilis eventually went on to play first and third base in the MLB for a trio of teams: the Boston Red Sox, the Chicago White Sox, and the New York Yankees. Here he's stationed in the stands at a Bengals and Rams game, next to his fellow football-fan wife, though she's repping a team that isn't on the field at the moment.
Youkilis has seen his team take a few steps forward in recent years, even making it to a Super Bowl in February of 2022, but they haven't ever taken home the Lombardi trophy.
Los Angeles Rams: Rebel Wilson
Despite being born in Australia, Rebel Wilson is a big fan of the Rams. During the 2021 season, she was even chosen to be an LA Rams ambassador. We're not sure what that means, but it sounds pretty good. Since the Rams went on to win the Super Bowl that year, it seems to have done the trick.
When the NFL Draft was held in 2021, she took over the Rams “Draft House” in Malibu. Why is Wilson such a big football fan? It's all because of the show “Friday Night Lights.” Apparently, that's all it took to get this gal excited for pigskin.
Nebraska Cornhuskers: Gabrielle Union
Gabrielle Union is a special fan, she gets to enjoy more than one team. While she loves the LA Rams, they are not the only team she's rooting for. She has two uncles who used to play for the University of Nebraska's national championship football team, which means she also loves and roots for the Cornhuskers.
But, she's not just a passive fan, she's someone who knows how to play the game. She can run, catch and throw a ball, and said she can play both sides of the ball. She has also claimed that while playing powder puff flag football she has never lost.
Los Angeles Rams: Flea
Flea – real name Michael Peter Balzary – has apparently always been a Rams fan, and he proved it by rocking out at the Los Angeles home opener in a number three jersey.
We all know that the Red Hot Chili Peppers love California, so it makes sense that at least one of them would be on the bandwagon of an original California team. You might hear that Flea has a play named after him – the flea flicker – but don't believe it. That play first started appearing on fields in 1925.
Cincinnati Bengals: Nick Lachey
He was born in Kentucky. He married Jessica Simpson. He was the lead singer of the boy band 98 Degrees. So who does he root for? Why, the Cincinnati Bengals, of course! Not only that, but he's a fan of the Cincinnati Reds, and the Cincinnati Bearcats. He's thrown out first pitches, been kicked out of games for altercations, and more.
Why is he such a big fan of all sports teams from Cincinnati? Well, he lives there! Or at least he did. He and his wife permanently relocated to Hawaii in 2021. We're glad he lived there for a little bit, at least, because otherwise, we would have no idea.
Los Angeles Rams: Tish Cyrus
If you're like us, you might be scratching your head about that name, but imagine the first name “Miley,” instead. Yes, it's Miley's mother Tish, who loves her Los Angeles Rams! Between filing for divorce and dropping that divorce with Billy Ray Cyrus in favor of couples therapy – multiple times – she loves to cheer on this Los Angeles football team.
She moved from Tennessee to California in the aughts to let Miley film “Hannah Montana,” and then when the Rams moved to Los Angeles she decided eh, why not.
