They have plenty to celebrate recently, with the Chiefs dominating during the Patrick Mahomes era. They last won the Super Bowl back in 2020, beating the San Francisco 49ers, 31-20, per ESPN.

Here is a list of the famous stars rooting for the Chiefs this coming weekend.

Brad Pitt

The Chiefs fanbase has some serious Hollywood star power, with Brad Pitt proudly donning the team’s colors. The Academy Award winner is a lifelong Chiefs fan, having spent much of his childhood in the Springfield area of Missouri.

He recorded a message back in 2013 for a local news station, which showed the Troy actor raising his fist in support of the Chiefs.

Pitt then wore a black cap with the Chiefs logo at the SAG Awards back in 2020, paying homage to the team after they won the Super Bowl that year.

Paul Rudd

There is no bigger celebrity Chiefs fan in the world right now than Paul Rudd. The Ant-Man actor grew up in the Kansas suburb of Lenexa and has been a hardcore Chiefs fan ever since.

The Hollywood star remains connected to his roots, supporting his alma mater, the Kansas Jayhawks and MLB team, the Kansas City Royals.

Jason Sudeikis

Ted Lasso star, Jason Sudeikis grew up in Overland Park, Kansas and has been a loyal fan of the Chiefs and other Kansas City sports teams ever since.

Interestingly, the Saturday Night Live alum attended the same high school as Kansas City fan Rudd - Shawnee Mission West.

Henry Cavill

Who says American football is just for American fans? The Chiefs also have fans from abroad, with Henry Cavill the most popular of them all.

The British actor told Rich Eisen in an interview back in 2018 that he spent a lot of time in America learning to play football and he realised he had to pick a team.

The Superman actor said it made perfect sense to support the Chiefs, as the Man of Steel is canonically from Kansas.

Melissa Etheridge

Melissa Etheridge is a passionate Chiefs fan, with the singer-songwriter having been born and raised in Leavenworth, a suburb of Kansas City.

Etheridge’s dedication to her favorite football team cannot be questioned, with the Grammy winner even making a song about the Chiefs recently.

Celebrities watch LeBron make history

The Super Bowl isn't the only must-see sports event this week, with celebrities saluting LeBron James after he made NBA history on Tuesday night.

The Los Angeles Lakers star broke the scoring record held by Kareem Abdul-Jabbar, in the game against Oklahoma City Thunder.

Among the stars who sent greetings to the King on his record-breaking night were Rihanna, Drake and Kendrick Lamar.
