Stars Who Love Football, Celebrities Who Appreciate the Sport
Football fanatics! It’s no secret that athletes such as Tom Brady, Jay Cutler and Aaron Rodgers love football, but there are also plenty of stars that enjoy rooting for their favorite teams from the sidelines, too — or from the comfort of their homes.
Whether they’re suiting up in the jerseys of their favorite players every Sunday afternoon or going all out for their fantasy football league, Tinseltown’s finest has plenty of love for the game.
Nick Lachey, for instance, has been known to cheer on his team from the couch alongside son Camden, while John Legend does his fantasy drafts in his home while surrounded by daughter Luna’s toys, making it a family affair.
Others, like Eric Decker, have given up their days on the field, but not their affinity for the sport; Jessie James Decker says she and her husband watch the game religiously.
“We’re not really tied to any team because we love all the teams [Eric has] played for. So I feel like we just kind of root for everyone,” Jessie James exclusively told Us Weekly in January 2023. “The only negative thing is, like, I don’t ever feel passionate about really any team specifically. Typically, if we know someone on the team, then we’ll we root for them.”
The Kittenish founder noted that it’s “absolutely” a blast to watch the games with her spouse, because he knows so much about football. “He’ll yell at the TV and be like, ‘What are you doing all over here?’ You know, he does know what’s going on,” she revealed. “But I’m so used to it at this point. I mean, it’s just a part of our lives and it always will be.”
There are also plenty of A-list women in the stadiums’ stands, such as Gisele Bündchen, who was married to former New England Patriots quarterback Brady from 2009 to 2022. The athlete played with the Tampa Bay Buccaneers for two years before briefly retiring in February 2022 — he returned for season 3 with the team that same year — and his then-wife was a stadium staple for decades.
Kristin Cavallari, for her part, was hard to miss at Chicago Bears and Miami Dolphins games when her then-husband was a quarterback. (She and Cutler called it quits in April 2020 after seven years of marriage.)
You’re also likely to find celebs such as Alyssa Milano — the Wet Hot American Summer: Ten Years Later alum created her own line of fan apparel for women called Touch — rooting for their teams.
Then there’s reporter Maria Menounos, who’s no stranger to the stadium Jumbotron: She has been to nearly 20 Super Bowls, after all!
