Seeing Robert Pattinson desperately attempt to clarify why selecting between Aerith and Tifa in Remaining Fantasy VII is troublesome as a result of he is in love with each, is certainly one of my easy pleasures in life. There was fairly the development not too long ago of celebrities revealing their nerdy tendencies of late. Although in fact celebs will at all times have loved a recreation or two, increasingly stars have unintentionally let it slip that video games are an even bigger a part of their lives than they initially let on. They’re identical to us, you see, they should unwind, and what’s higher to unwind with than a recreation of League of Legends?
Wait, truly a lot of issues are higher to unwind with than a recreation of League of Legends. However from Henry Cavill’s love of Warhammer to Robert Pattinson’s Aerith crush, the roots of gaming in celeb tradition go far and large. So it is a listing of celebrities and the video games that they love spending time taking part in.
Henry Cavill does not simply play Geralt within the Netflix present—he loves The Witcher 3 and the lore surrounding the books and video games. At San Diego Comedian-Con in 2019 he informed followers that he pushed his agent to get a gathering with The Witcher’s showrunner, Lauren Schmidt, earlier than the sequence had been greenlit. It was that perseverance that landed him the function of Geralt. And he is already evenly hinted he’d be all in favour of starring in a Crimson Lifeless Redemption adaptation (opens in new tab) too.
Cavill’s love of video games does not simply finish with The Witcher. Chances are you’ll recall that video of him constructing his PC (opens in new tab) and the ruckus it brought about on the web. He has additionally been identified to play Overwatch, and he is a large Warhammer fan (opens in new tab) as properly. This is an particularly enjoyable interview (opens in new tab) the place Cavill needed to politely clarify that Warhammer shouldn’t be World of Warcraft, and that portray miniatures is a wonderfully regular passion, thanks.

The Twilight fan in me is at all times blissful so as to add Robert Pattinson to any dialog subject, however he is right here due to his Remaining Fantasy VII rant. The Batman actor has an lovable dialog with co-star Zoe Kravitz the place he desperately tries to clarify the significance of Aerith and Tifa in Remaining Fantasty VII and the way he cried when (spoilers) Aerith died. He even explains that relying on the model of the sport Aerith’s identify could possibly be Aerith or Aeris. He is such a nerd for this one recreation and it is so healthful watching him strive his very best to make this sound as thrilling as potential.
Snoop Dogg is one other excessive profile celeb with a public appreciation for video games. The rapper has been identified to go reside taking part in Name of Responsibility Warzone, though he is not precisely essentially the most seasoned streamer. He as soon as left the stream operating for seven hours after a rage stop (opens in new tab) which offered fairly the humorous second the place he comes again to the pc to cease the stream. He additionally went reside with out audio for every week (opens in new tab) and none of his followers might even inform him regardless of their greatest efforts. It nearly appears like efficiency artwork.
Snoop loves a little bit of CoD and a few Madden, primarily based on what he performs reside on his channel DoodyDog20 (opens in new tab).
Although I confess I do not know Terry Crew’s favorite recreation, he is at the least constructed a PC earlier than. In an interview with Enterprise Insider (opens in new tab), the actor tells the story of how he took an curiosity in his childrens’ passions, which included PC gaming. After not understanding why his son preferred watching individuals play video games, he says: “I realised I used to be dropping my son. I used to be dropping him. And I mentioned, I must be a part of his world. I want to search out out what he is about. As a result of you already know, so many occasions mother and father are like ‘Okay, come on you are gonna come to work with dad. Come and do what dad needs you to do.” And I realised I did not wish to be that man.”
So Crews got down to construct a PC along with his son and found the enjoyment that exercise might convey as a bonding expertise. Healthful, hey? That is why constructing your individual PC is nice (opens in new tab).
Crews additionally had a customized construct made for him by JayzTwoCents, which seems to be depraved, and occurs to be Outdated Spice themed.
Kasparov is not precisely a star except you are into chess. However when you’re into chess, he is a famous person. The highest-ranked chess participant on the planet for many years, this Grandmaster has fairly an appreciation for on-line video games along with chess. Extra particularly, Garry Kasparov likes a little bit of Hearthstone.
Blizzard did a promotional video for Hearthstone with the chess legend the place he chats about how he enjoys its problem and says among the wider chess neighborhood do too. The interview hinges on how Kasparov was overwhelmed by an AI again in 1997, which was his first loss and one he took personally. Nevertheless, he says that Hearthstone’s draw is that the AI you play towards aren’t going to have mastered the sport, like an AI might grasp chess, as there are such a lot of variables. Clearly Kasparov nonetheless will get a kick out of outsmarting computer systems.
Jack Black has starred in his personal recreation, Brütal Legend, so I think about that is up there on his listing of favourites. However bizarrely, he loves 5 Nights at Freddy’s sufficient that he is aware of The Residing Tombstone’s tune of the identical identify. Black began a YouTube channel referred to as JablinskiGames (opens in new tab), providing video proof that he owns a gaming chair.
Additionally, he made this TikTok. Take pleasure in it.

Sure, Jamie Lee Curtis actually officiated her daughter’s wedding ceremony in full cosplay. The actress, greatest identified for her function within the Halloween movies, has been identified to cosplay right here and there. For her daughter’s wedding ceremony she wore a full Jaina Proudmoore costume, however she additionally attended EVO in 2015 as Avenue Fighter’s Vega because the masks allowed her to cover her true identification. Badass.

Dominic Monaghan and Billy Boyd
Hobbits love two issues: Meals and League of Legends, it appears. Actors Dominic Monaghan and Billy Boyd performed a variety of League of Legends over lockdown it appears and so they’ve talked a number of occasions about their love of the sport (opens in new tab) together with on their podcast. Apparently they’ve even tried to get fellow hobbit Elijah Wooden to play. How healthful, eh? I imply once they’re not arguing about whose fault a loss is, I think about.
Mila Kunis was a World of Warcraft fanatic at one level—so unhealthy that she seemingly needed to minimize the sport out of her life. The actress speaks briefly about her love of the sport on her episode of Sizzling Ones from 2021 on YouTube, the place she says that she knew her behavior was getting out of hand when her agent needed to log into the sport to talk along with her. And her character had pink hair and pigtails, which is cute.
On the subject of World of Warcraft, the Stranger Issues star says that the sport ruined his life. He mentioned in an interview that again in 2005 he performed “the shit” out of the sport. Harbour apparently performed a night-elf warrior named Norad who was second tank of his guild. The actor says that for a 12 months he was hooked on WoW to the purpose that he was “out of [his] thoughts.”
Harbour additionally cherished taking part in The Sims and that occurred to get him out of his Warcraft part. Harbbour watched certainly one of his sims grow to be too centered on videogames slightly than the life occurring round him and reevaluated his life. With out The Sims, I ponder the place the actor can be now.
A great deal of others celebs have appeared in video games and round gaming tradition like Rosario Dawson and Samuel L. Jackson, however they’ve but to declare a favorite PC recreation so far as I can see. In fact there will likely be those that play within the secrecy of their very own properties, and to them I say: Go on, confess that you simply’re nerds identical to us.
