Everyone seems to enjoy video games. They may not enjoy the same genre or even platform but there’s usually a game out there for everyone. When it comes to celebrities, there are a number of actors, actresses, and musicians that take an interest in playing video games during their breaks. We listed down ten celebrities that have an interest in video games and the franchises that they particularly enjoy down below.
#10 Mila Kunis
Actress Mila Kunis got her first big role in That ‘70s Show but went on to star in a number of big cinema flicks such as Forgetting Sarah Marshall, Ted, and Bad Moms. You may also recognize her voice as she is the voice actress that portrays Meg Griffin in the popular animated series, Family Guy.
However, when she’s not acting in films or television shows, Mila Kunis has been known to spend countless hours in World of Warcraft. In a podcast known as One of Swords, Mila spoke of her time playing World of Warcraft for hours which doesn’t come to much of a surprise as the MMORPG has easily gained a following over the years. Apparently Mila has since stopped playing WoW but we’re curious as to if the actress has jumped back into the game especially with the latest expansion Battle for Azeroth now currently available.
#9 Megan Fox
Megan Fox became a worldwide star when she took the role of Mikaela Banes in the blockbuster hit, Transformers. Since the role, she went on to star as April O’Neil in Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles while also picking up work in various television shows.
In an interview with Business Insider, Megan made note of growing up with the Super Nintendo Entertainment System and playing the game all the time. That trend followed her with the Xbox where she admitted to spending countless hours with the online component of Halo. She now has a family to look after, but perhaps she’s still eagerly awaiting that next release of Halo to launch on the Xbox One.
#8 Daniel Craig
Daniel Craig may be most well-known for his role as James Bond when Pierce Brosnan passed the torch for the character in 2005. Now he has gone on to play in such films as Casino Royale, Quantum Solace, and Skyfall. However, reports have been out that Daniel Craig also likes spending time with video games.
This report came from Daily Star when they had to chance to speak with Adam Gascoine of Treyarch. Adam was working with Daniel with their upcoming video game adaptation of Quantum Solace when apparently they found out that Daniel would spend a ton of time playing video games himself. One of his favorites at the time was Guitar Hero where Daniel was even holding up the meeting with Treyarch because of his love for the game.
If reports are true, relationships were also tested due to Daniel’s love for video games. Perhaps you faced against James Bond himself unknowingly.
#7 Olivia Munn
It probably doesn’t come to much of a surprise to hear Olivia Munn is a gamer. While she has worked on various films and television shows such as X-Men: Apocalypse and Chuck, the actress was also a co-host to a geeky show known as Attack of the Show! It was within this show that viewers were presented with the latest tech and video game news. In a past interview with Cnet, Olivia Munn had spoken of her particular enjoyment with the Assassin’s Creed and Halo series.
#6 Snoop Dogg
Snoop Dogg, Coach Snoop, Doggfather, Snoop Lion, he goes by many names and no doubt that you know him as a massive rapper, singer, and songwriter. Outside of his music career, this celebrity has starred in a variety of films and television shows. This is also a pretty well-known gamer as Snoop Dogg has been part of expos, events and even game tournaments. He’s become quite the professional gamer so if you do happen to come across his way online, don’t expect an easy win.
#5 Jessica Alba
You know her as the Invisible Woman in Fantastic Four, Nancy Callahan in Sin City and most recently Beth Flowers in El Camino Christmas. However, outside of acting, Jessica Alba has had a love for video games. During a talk with Yahoo, Jessica Alba spoken of her days growing up with such classics as Bomberman, Super Mario Brothers and The Legend of Zelda.
She was even known to bust out the Nintendo DS when she was filming Fantastic Four: Rise of the Silver Surfer. We’re unsure of just what consoles she’s playing today but we can see Jessica Alba taking up with the Nintendo Switch.
Much like Snoop Dogg, Eminem is another worldwide rapper and actor. However, outside of touring and creating new albums, Eminem does enjoy playing a video game during his break. Although, instead of the new video game titles with the latest cutting-edge graphics and mechanics, Eminem likes to keep things a bit old school.
As it turns out Eminem enjoys classic video game titles and arcade hits. In fact, in the past, there has been a Donkey Kong cabinet in his recording studio where of course he holds the top spot. In an interview with Complex, Eminem showcased his score of 229,100. Can you top his score in the classic Donkey Kong?
#3 Jack Black
Jack Black is a comedian, musician, and actor. You may have watched his movies in the past such as Shallow Hal, School of Rock or the more recent release, Jumanji: Welcome to the Jungle. During his career, Jack Black has been part of the video game industry in one way or another. For instance, he acted in a commercial for the video game Pitfall, a classic title that may be more known as an Atari video game.
The famed actor has even starred in a video game known as Brutal Legend. However, it looks like the actor can hold his own with some of the latest video game releases. Now we’re curious as to if there will ever be a sequel to Brutal Legend as a new installment has been talked about for a few years now.
#2 Will Arnett
Will Arnett is a comedian-actor who is known for his roles in Blades of Glory, Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles, Arrested Development and more recently voicing the Batman character for the Lego Movie titles. Likewise, Will Arnett has voiced a few different characters for video game titles such as Eat Lead: The Return of Matt Hazard and Call of Duty: Modern Warfare 2.
Not only has Will Arnett voiced video game characters, but he also plays a few video game titles from time-to-time. In fact, he had a series on Xbox known as Game Chat where he invited some of his friends to talk and play video games. We included an episode from the series posted above.
#1 Seth Rogen
Seth Rogen is a well-known actor who has been in films such as Knocked Up, Pineapple Express, The Green Hornet, and Neighbors 2: Sorority Rising. The actor even did the voice work for B.O.B. in the video game adaptation for Monsters vs. Aliens.
While promoting the Monsters vs. Aliens film, Seth was asked by NBC if he enjoys playing video games where he confessed that he spends a ton of time playing them and that he’s a big fan of the Call of Duty franchise. However, Seth tends to stay offline when it comes to video games to instead enjoy the campaigns. We wonder if Seth still feels the same way or if he has since taken a more competitive gameplay approach online.
