These Celebrities Are Huge Green Bay Packers Fans and 1 Even Has a Tattoo to Prove it
The Green Bay Packers are a very successful NFL franchise. The team has won multiple championships and Super Bowls. Moreover, the actual Lombardi Trophy awarded to the winner of the league’s biggest game every year is named after the team’s former head coach, Vince Lombardi.
The Packers have had so many highly-talented players in their organization like Hall of Famers Bart Starr and Brett Favre, and current quarterback Aaron Rodgers who will also own a gold jacket one day. The team boasts some very devoted superstar fans as well. Here are the celebrities who root for the Pack on Sundays and who even got a tattoo of the team’s logo on their body.
The celebs who are huge Green Bay Packers fans
Some of the biggest names in the entertainment business are “Cheeseheads.”
In an interview with Rich Eisen, actor James Van Der Beek explained that he is from New England, but always “resented the fact that they tried to lump us into a Boston team.” So he decided to pick another team to root for entirely and said he went with Green Bay because the Packers have the “greatest fan bases in all of sports.”
Oscar winner Jodi Foster also roots for the Packers, most of the time. The star stated on Conan that she “likes the outfits.… I have a cheese beer holder. I got cheese everything.” However, the Los Angles native did admit that if the team is bad she might jump around the league and cheer for another team that’s doing better. Foster probably hasn’t had to do that much though since the Packers have been consistently good for several years.
Lil Wayne made it know to the world that he is for Green Bay all the way with his “Green and Yellow” remix in which he raps: “I’m a Cheesehead, y’all (expletive) are Cheez-Whiz… I put it down representing for my team. I’m in Green and Yellow.”
During a celebrity golf tournament in 2015, Justin Timberlake shared why he is such a fan of the Packers. “Growing up in Memphis, we didn’t have a team, and Brett sort of represented the South,” Timberlake said of the Mississippi-born Favre. “He was like a superhero.” The “Suit & Tie” artist is friends with the team’s current signal caller and has called Rodgers “the best quarterback in the league.”
But perhaps none are bigger fans than the star who has a Packers tattoo
While those celebs are all proud Cheeseheads, one proved his fandom by getting permanent ink on his body. Former One Direction member Harry Styles has a tattoo of his favorite NFL team on his left bicep.
The U.K.-born singer previously told NPR that the Packers were the first American football team he saw play and that’s how he became a fan. After a bet with a friend in 2012, Styles got a tattoo of the team’s logo. However, there is one little problem with the tat.
It’s not green and gold, which are the team’s colors. Instead, his tattoo is black and white so it resembles the logo for the University of Georgia more than the Packers.
