LA Lakers: 5 Underrated Celebrity Fans of the Lakers

0 of 5

    Keeping an eye on all the celebrities is one of the unique perks of watching or attending a Los Angeles Lakers game. Some of the more famous celebrity Lakers fans include the likes of Jack Nicholson, Denzel Washington and Dyan Cannon.

    But there are plenty of decorated celebrities who consistently attend Lakers games who fly under the radar.

    Here are the five most underrated celebrity Lakers fans.

5. Hilary Swank

    I bet most of you guys didn’t know Hilary Swank was a Lakers fan. But the two-time Oscar winner can be seen at many Lakers games each season. Considering being a celebrity Lakers fan is more or less a boys club, it’s good to see such a talented actress supporting Kobe Bryant and the gang.

4. Dustin Hoffman

    Dustin Hoffman must generally love Los Angeles basketball. Not only is he a fan of the Lakers, but he also supports the Clippers. Hoffman certainly gets both ends of the spectrum rooting for both Los Angeles basketball teams. 

3. Will Ferrell

    While Will Ferrell usually makes the majority of his appearances at Lakers games during the postseason, raising questions about his true passion for the team, it’s hard to keep him off this list.

    Not only is Ferrell a fan, but he provides fans in attendance and television viewers with entertainment of his own. Who can forget him kissing John C. Reilly during last spring’s postseason?

2. Leonardo DiCaprio

    Right now, Leonardo DiCaprio is overshadowed by the likes of Jack Nicholson and Denzel Washington when it comes to being the king of celebrity Lakers fans.

    But while DiCaprio is considered an “underrated” fan right now, given his young age and status as one of the best actors in Hollywood, Leo has the chance to eventually take Jack’s place as the team’s No. 1 celebrity fan.

1. Jonah Hill

    I have seen Jonah Hill popping up at Lakers games more and more the last couple of seasons. And according to a recent interview with Bleacher Report, the Moneyball co-star is much more than just a causal fan.
