We’re Human Too – Celebs Who Love A Game Or Two

Behind the glitz, the makeup, the gym, the diets and the glamour of the big screen, celebrities let loose by browsing social media, posting selfies and playing online games with friends, family, and fans. At the end of the day, they are just like us – they’re human. They’re players. Whether it be online, in person or on the field, celebrities alike are fans of the world of gaming.

Bill Murray is likely to be the most legendary golfer to play in many Pro-ams and tours around the USA and the world. He has played rounds with Tiger Woods, and recently Jordan Speith. Murray is such a passionate golfer, who plays off a 7 handicap. He has recently launched a brand new irreverent clothing line to match his incredible personality and playing style.

While you might refer to him as a figurative ‘player’ a man that claimed to drink tiger blood also knows how to have some fun; Charlie Sheen has taken the gaming world to a whole new level. It became public knowledge in 2006 when his second wife, Denise Richards, said in divorce papers filed in court that he was spending about $200,000 a week on gambling.


The Hollywood starlet Megan Fox is known for her love for hardcore gaming. Fox confessed to being totally addicted to first person shooter game Halo. She also plays online against gamers from around the world – imagine the sheer surprise some of her fans experience when learning that they’ve been playing against the mega-babe Megan Fox. Fox has admitted that gaming, including games like Mortal Combat, challenge her and get her brain working, and develop her acting skills.

Ellen DeGeneres is renowned for her incredible creativity when it comes to games and always goes over the top to excited viewers from around the work. Her guests, like Rebel Wilson, Lena Dunham and even the mighty Oprah are avid players of “Heads Up” – a game similar to Pictionary, but can be played with a smartphone. Heads Up allows players to guess names, locations, actions and places by reading the cue on the opposite player’s iPhone that is placed on their forehead. A weird, but truly wonderful digital game.

Believe it or not, Mick Jagger and the Rolling Stones have always been enthusiastic bingo players! There is a thrill in stacking up your board and getting close to the full house. Many legends play bingo games for fun to relax and unwind, since Bingo is both an exciting but relaxing game to play with friends and family.

It’s comforting to know that while many of us lie in bed late at night, playing words with friends, solitaire or candycrush, celebrities around the world are likely to be doing the exact same thing too.
