Think celebrities are incredibly different from you? Think again, because you might have played online with one! Here are seven celebrities who are also big-time gamers!

7. Terry Crews


The funny man himself, Terry Crews! While most may know him for his role in the classic Old Spice ads or the movie White Chicks, Crews is also a recent gamer. Earlier this year, Crews reached out to the gaming community to help build himself a gaming computer that was just as beefy as himself. Why the interest in gaming? So, he could bond with his son! Brings to a tear to our eyes, to be honest.

6. Austin Creed (Xavier Woods)


Famous for his stage name, Xavier Woods, this WWE Superstar (and 1/3 of The New Day trio) is no stranger to the world of gaming. Having showcased his love for retro and current gaming in various WWE intros, Austin Creed decided to take his second love to YouTube with the UpUpDownDown gaming channel. Here, Creed plays games from various genres, showing that he’s versatile both in the ring and on the sticks.

5. Mila Kunis


Remember Mila Kunis? One of the many female stars of That 70s Show? In addition to being a popular actress, she’s also a gamer. Kunis thought she might have an addiction to World of Warcraft (something we know all too well), but in 2012 she managed to quit cold turkey…and turned to Call of Duty. According to an interview Kunis did at San Diego Comic-Con 2012, she loves herself some Nazi Zombies.

4. Snoop Dogg


In addition to a thing for baking, Snoop Dogg (or Snoop Lion? We’re not sure anymore) is also a gamer! Snoop was one of the numerous celebrities DICE and EA brought to their showcase for Battlefield 1 earlier this year.

3. Robin Williams


The late Robin Williams (may he rest in piece) was also gamer. Although, seeing as how his daughter’s name is Zelda, named after The Legend of Zelda’s princess Zelda, this really shouldn’t come as a huge surprise. But, aside from loving Legend of Zelda, Williams also enjoyed World of Warcraft. Before his untimely death in 2014, Williams had been an avid gamer for 30 years.

2. Samuel L. Jackson

Say what again, we dare you! No, but seriously, the Pulp Fiction, Django Unchained, The Hateful Eight, and many more movies star has been a gamer since the beginning. Having played Pong and Atari games, Jackson’s affinity for gaming has developed, currently settling in the first-person shooter (FPS) genre. Jackson has stated that if you sit him down with an FPS, he’ll be “in front of the TV all day long!”

1. Megan Fox


The actress who’s starred in more movies than we can count and was hated by more people than we have fingers, for some odd reason: Megan Fox. Fox isn’t just an actress, she’s also: a comic book lover, graphic novel reader, and most importantly a gamer. In an interview at the 2012 Toronto Film Festival, Fox stated that whatever her husband, Brian Austin Green, is playing, she’s playing as well. At the time, of the interview, Fox was killing dudes in Halo Reach.
