Celebrities are just regular people like the rest of us. And, like the rest of us, some celebs are massive sports fans. Check out the five celebrities below as a few examples. Can you relate to their passion for sports?
Mark Wahlberg is a big fan of Boston, but he is also a huge sports fanatic too. So, it should come as no surprise that he is a diehard fan of all things Boston sports-related. In fact, he is one of the biggest celebrity baseball fans out there, and you will often see him at sporting events celebrating and supporting his favorite teams, which include the Celtics, the Patriots, and the Red Sox.
Another celeb who is known for his love of sports is Hugh Grant. His favorite team is Fulham F.C., a beloved soccer team. Beyond merely watching the events on TV, though, whenever his schedule allows, he is often seen attending sporting events to support his favorite athletes, and he has even spoken about how heartbroken he was when his favorite team failed to win.
Sarah Jessica Parker
Sarah Jessica Parker is famous for her acting, as is her husband, Matthew Broderick. And while this is one of Hollywood’s power couples who seem to get along fabulously well, there is something that they disagree on, and that is baseball. You see, Sarah is a major New York Yankees fan but Matthew is dedicated to the New York Mets. Things must get interesting during baseball season in the Broderick-Parker household.
Jennifer Lopez is known for her many talents, such as her dancing skills, her ability to sing, and, of course, her ability to act in a wide range of roles. And she has even used her talents to perform at sporting events. But what a lot of people do not know is that she is a really big sports fan. Thanks to her New York origins, her favorite teams include the New York Yankees. To take her love of sports to another level, though, she purchased a share in the Miami Dolphins in 2009 when she was married to Marc Anthony (this makes her a co-owner of the NFL team).
Jenna Fischer is known for her role on the hit television show, The Office. But when she is not putting her acting chops to work, she enjoys spending plenty of time watching exciting sporting events on TV and attending games in person. Her favorite baseball team is the St. Louis Cardinals, while she prefers the Dallas Cowboys to all other teams in the NFL. You will even regularly see her having a blast at MLB All Start Celebrity Softball Games.
As you can see, there are plenty of celebrities that are renowned not only for their talents but also for their love of sports. Who knows, you might end up seeing one of these talented people at one of the sporting events that you will be attending in the future.
