The New England Patriots are a worldwide brand because of their success during the 2000s. These famous celebrities are huge fans of the team. Did you know these household names cheer for the Patriots? It's always cool to see big names cheer for your favorite team, and you may not even know that some of these famous celebrities cheer for the New England Patriots.
Even during their recent down seasons, I bet the Patriots have gained even more fans. The brand itself is set in stone and is an obsession for many people. During their meteoric rise in the 2000s, the Patriots likely found themselves with an influx of new fans.
They're one of the most followed NFL teams across social media and also have quite a few famous celebrities who support the team.
Top 10 famous celebrities who are New England Patriots' fans
1. Mark Wahlberg
Mark Wahlberg is perhaps the most prominent New England Patriots fan. He's from Boston and has been to countless games. Wahlberg has a relationship with Patriots' giants like Robert Kraft and Tom Brady. He's been in countless movies across numerous genres and has Patriots' blood in his veins.
2. Ben Affleck
Ben Affleck is another famous celebrity, sensational actor, and someone who has roots in Massachusetts. He was not born there, but moved there when he was young. On a side note, the actor's performance in The Accountant, a movie that came out in 2016, was a stellar performance.
Affleck has also voiced his opinion on matters related to the Patriots, and you can hear the passion pretty clearly.
3. Aly Raisman
Aly Raisman isn't a Hollywood celebrity, but she's an Olympian who has won a ton of medals during her gymnastics career, which ended in 2020. She's also Jewish, which brings another nice connection to the New England Patriots. The 29-year-old was born in Massachusetts (shocker) and was a part of the courageous bunch of women who came forward regarding the abuse by Larry Nassar.
4. Paul Pierce
One of the best basketball players in Boston Celtics history is Paul Pierce, who helped bring a title back to Boston (like the city was dying for one) with the Celtics in the 2007-2008 season. He's been seen sporting his Patriots' gear and surely has a relationship with some former Patriots' players from when he was still an active NBA player.
5. Steven Tyler
OK, I was today years old when I realized that Steven Tyler is a whopping 75-years-old. He's one of the better singers of all-time and is obviously most known for being the lead singer of Aerosmith, which has roots in Boston. Tyler has performed the National Anthem at a couple of Patriots' games and also wore a Patriots' scarf during the 2011 AFC Championship game.
Other very notable fans of the New England Patriots are John Cena, Mind Kaling and John Krasinski from The Office, Julie Chen Moonves, and Jon Bon Jovi. Surely, there's also a ton of celebrities who may not like the New England Patriots at all.
