Video games are fun. Period. Since their entrance into average American homes, they've been a source for entertainment and good times. Unfortunately, there have been many stereotypes that go along with playing video games as well as a negative connotation. Typically, it's looked at as a bad thing and is a telltale sign that you are in college but still live with your mom and dad. Because of this, many individuals will not admit to being gamers for the sake of keeping their reputations alive.
Fortunately for those of us gamers in the world, we are nowhere near alone. Even in Hollywood, there are plenty of people who understand us just fine. Some of the most popular and charismatic actors and comedians on the planet identify with us way more than people realize. Yes, they play video games too and they wear it proudly like a badge of honor.
We have this way of thinking in our heads that makes celebrities a whole different breed of people. But that is nowhere near the case. They walk, talk, eat, sleep, and even play games just like we do. Just because they're out there making movies doesn't mean that they don't have time for a little Halo or Mario Kart. Many of them are actually so into these games that they've gone to great lengths to show their support.
Here are 11 of the hottest celebrities you didn't know were hardcore gamers.
11 Taylor Lautner - Rock Band
10 Mila Kunis - World of Warcraft
9 Zac Efron - Halo
8 Daniel Craig - James Bond And Guitar Hero
7 Megan Fox - Halo Reach
6 Vin Diesel - Created A Gaming Studio
5 Justin Bieber - Call Of Duty
4 Jessica Alba - Zelda
3 Michael Fassbender - Assassin's Creed
2 Matthew Perry - Fallout
1 Henry Cavill - World of Warcraft And Skyrim
Now we're ending this list on a high note. It makes my inner nerd giggle with delight that the actor that plays Superman also loves video games. He was really into World of Warcraft, so much so that it nearly cost him the role of Superman! Zak Snyder called to offer him the part, but Cavill was in the middle of WoW and ignored the call to keep playing. Cavill also has a deep love for Skyrim and is rumored to be starring in a future Superman game, voicing the Man of Steel once again.
