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!”
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.
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.
