Though he grew up in England, the actor behind Harry Potter loves some American football. Radcliffe has publicly acknowledged that he is a Giants fan. The reasoning for this is he was starring as a character named J. Pierrepont Finch in the Broadway play “How to Succeed in Business Without Really Trying,” and spent some time getting to know the sport, developing a liking.
While he admits it’s a bit strange for someone across the pond to enjoy the sport so much, he’s quite well-informed about the details and isn’t scared to admit he’s crazy about the bluer of the two New York teams.
Cincinnati Bengals: George Clooney
You wouldn't expect Clooney, a Hollywood A-lister if there ever is one, to wave the flag for a smaller team like the Bengals, but here we are. Clooney actually spent most of his childhood in either northern Kentucky or Ohio — no team in Kentucky, meaning it was Bengals all the way. Whenever he's in the area, he likes to take in a game or two.
He's such a big fan that when he ran into longtime Baltimore Raven Ed Reed (the Ravens and Bengals are fierce rivals), Clooney told Reed, “You hurt me bad.” Reed's response was simply: “They hurt themselves!”
Cleveland Browns: Condoleezza Rice
Yes, it's true; even the Browns have their share of celeb fans. This former Secretary of State has been a fan even through the darkest times of the franchise. Rice is actually a pretty big overall fan of football, having served on the College Football Playoff Committee.
She's such a big fan of the Browns, in fact, that there were rumors she was being considered for a coaching job in their unforgettably bad 2017 season. The rumors turned out to be just that, though Rice says she did offer to call a play or two and never put the team in a preventive defense.
Washington Redskins: Kevin Durant
Durantula grew up in the nation's capital, and despite going to college in Texas and spending most of his career in Oklahoma City, he's still a big fan of the Team.
He's still a fan of his chosen squad even after the name change, though there was a little bit of trouble in paradise when it seemed like he was switching his allegiance to the Rams. (Why is it always the Rams?) Still, he put all fears to rest when he trolled Golden State teammate Steph Curry — a Panthers fan — after the team put the Panthers in their place. That's loyalty.
Chicago Bears: Barack Obama
While Obama's sports fandom is mainly focused on basketball, the former president of the United States still pulls for the Chicago Bears after spending most of his life (and beginning his political career) in the Windy City. He was originally a Steelers fan, but becoming a Senator from Illinois changed his allegiances fast.
Every time he invited the Super Bowl winners to the White House, he found a way to mention his Bears fandom. While the Bears haven't been doing great recently, he did get to retroactively invite the 1985 Bears since their original visit was canceled after the Challenger space shuttle disaster.
