Fame and mega-millions — it’s what separates us from celebrities. But when it comes to football Sundays, these A-listers share the same passion we as Philly fans have for the Philadelphia Eagles.
Probably one of the most well-known Eagles fans, Cooper is a Jenkintown native who grew up watching The Birds with his late father. As the lead in 2012’s Silver Linings Playbook, he played a die-hard Eagles fan effortlessly and was nominated for Best Actor at the Oscars. He is often seen at games throughout the season and was cheering on the team at Super Bowl LII.
Born and raised in Philadelphia, this comedian is no joke when it comes to the Eagles. Hart is a prominent figure on social media and always shows his support for the team — so much so that he tried to scale the Super Bowl stage to get in on the trophy presentation. His love is not unrequited, however. After a 2019 car crash, the Philadelphia Eagles sent him well wishes for a speedy recovery.
In West Philadelphia, born and raised, cheering for the Eagles is where he’ll spend most of his days. Will Smith is active on social media during football season and even created his own hype video for Super Bowl LII.
Although a sports superstar of his own, Bryant was a self-proclaimed “neurotic” Eagles fan. From Lower Merion, he maintained his Philly roots from LA. In 2019, Bryant ran into former quarterback Nick Foles who introduced himself to the NBA player. Bryant’s response was, “Fool, I know who you are.” RIP.
Philadelphia’s original underdog. Stallone was a Philly resident as a teenager, attending Lincoln High School. While here, the city made such a significant impact that it was a no-brainer when he wrote Rocky. A nod to the Eagles can often be seen in the Rocky series. In 2018, he predicted a Birds win “by knockout” and had a message for all fans — “Keep punching Philly!”
Los Angeles Angel’s great is a Millville native who has been quoted stating, “Ever since I was a kid, I’ve been hooked on them [Eagles].” He is a season ticket holder with front row seats and is very active on Twitter during game day.
From South Jersey, professional soccer player Carli Lloyd made it very clear at the U.S. Women’s National Team’s World Cup victory parade in New York, where her allegiance lies. She stated, “I’m a Jersey girl through and through, but New York is just as close, even though I’m an Eagles fan down in Philly. Fly, Eagles, fly.”
When it comes to the Philadelphia Eagles, Pink isn’t just vocal on stage. Seen on many occasions sporting custom Eagles jerseys, she sang the National Anthem for Super Bowl LII and was ecstatic about it, to say the least.
Ummm. I’m singing the national anthem and the EAGLES ARE PLAYING?!?!?! IS THIS FOR REAL?!?!?!THATS WHASSUP!!!!!!!! Shtjtkd widnamc ckamcnsnzncbx!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! Wooohooooooooooooioooooooooooooooooooooooooiiiiiiooooooooooo

Martin Truex, Jr.
