Celebrities with nerdy hobbies

If you are a passionate gamer or action figures collector, you’re definitely not alone. But also, you will be happy to hear that some celebrities are quite nerdy when it comes to hobbies. Yes, that’s right! There are some famous people whose hobbies are a bit eccentric, nerdy or weird. Here they are.

Vin Diesel








Vin Diesel might be a huge action movie star, but did you know that he’s also played Dungeons & Dragons for over 20 years? He’s so involved that he even wrote the forward for “30 Years of Adventure: A Celebration of Dungeons & Dragons.”

Mila Kunis








Mila Kunis has a passion for World of Warcraft. Mila’s not shy about her WoW love either. She came right out and disclosed the hobby to Jimmy Kimmel on his late-night talk show, and she proved her WoW smarts when Complex magazine challenged her to a quiz about the game.

David Arquette








You’d never guess what David does in his free time. The actor likes to take the edge off by knitting. The actor frequently wears scarves of his own creation and even appeared on the cover of the book Celebrity Scarves.

Leonardo Dicaprio








Leonardo Dicaprio has an impressive collection of action figures. Apparently, Leo’s favorites are his collection of Stars Wars figurines, but he also has a rare 1982 ‘He-Man’ figure that he takes pride in.

Susan Sarandon








Susan Sarandon knows ping pong. The Academy Award winning actress has often described herself as a “ping pong propagandist,” going as far as opening SPiN, a franchise of clubs dedicated to the sport. So far she has SPiN locations established in Toronto, Los Angeles, New York and Milwaukee.

Tom Hanks

Tom Hanks ist von der deutschen Filmgeschichte begeistert







Tom Hanks collects typewriters from the 1930s and 40s. News of the obsession spread like wildfire across the internet when it was revealed that comedian Chris Hardwicke got the legendary actor to participate in a long-form interview for the Nerdist Podcast by bribing him with a 1934 Smith Corona. The typewriter was delivered to Hanks with a personal letter attached. Hanks quickly sent his hilarious acceptance letter after first typing it out on that very 1934 Corona.

Rosario Dawson

The Hip-Hop Inaugural Ball II







Rosario Dawson probably isn’t the first person you imagine navigating the crowded floors of Comic-Con and yet she does. She regularly frequents the comic convention in masks and even co-created her own comic series called “Occult Crimes Taskforce.”

Angelina Jolie

Angelina Jolie has been collecting knives and daggers since she was a child. In an interview with W Magazine, she said, “My mom took me to buy my first daggers when I was 11 or 12. And I’ve already bought Maddox some things. We take him to a special shop.”

Nicolas Cage

The actor has a longstanding obsession with comics, specifically superheroes, which he’s referred to as “Jungian archetypes of the modern age.” He has made headlines by boasting such rarities as Action Comics No. 1, which features Superman’s first appearance. Cage has gone as far as to let comics influence his own namesake—he took his acting moniker from Marvel’s character Luke Cage and named one of his sons Kal-El.

Ben Stiller








Funnyman Ben Stiller is one of the most famous Trekkies in the world. Stiller admits to being a huge ‘Star Trek’ fan ever since he was a kid, and he has even made public appearances in his Trekkie-approved uniform.

    Thanks for the very interesting article. Now I am aware of the nerdy hobbies of most of my favorite celebrities. Well, video gaming is very popular these days, but I would never have thought Mila Kunis was into WoW game and that Leo collects action figures… Collecting knives is something I wouldn’t suspect Angie of, she is simply too much a lady for this to me. Still, we all like doing some things that bring us moral satisfaction and bring us pride. Maybe I should try knitting as David does?!! )))
