Video games have long been a part of popular culture – without them, it is simply unthinkable. Today people of all ages and professions play, and it will hardly surprise anyone that among celebrities there are also many gamers. Despite their enormous busyness, popular musicians, actors, directors, and athletes still find time to play their favorite titles on consoles or PCs.
All these people like to play in different games. Some of them like Escape from Tarkov’s popularity because of its intense and realistic gameplay, where players engage in immersive tactical combat and survival mechanics. The game’s emphasis is on hardcore realism, so players often buy tarkov power leveling in boosting companies. Other famous people like to play MMORPGs to experience fantasy worlds, and some just like sports sims like FIFA to chill after a hard day. In this article, we will observe famous actors whose main hobby is gaming.

From a film career in which Zac was associated with comedic roles of students and other wild youth, Efron moved on to more serious roles. The transition was Baywatch, in which Zack again played an arrogant young guy, but this film was already more serious than many of his previous films. This was followed by a role in The Greatest Showman, and after that – in the film Extremely Wicked, Shockingly Evil and Vile, in which Zach played a cruel maniac, but at the same time a loving husband and father. As in this film, in real life Zach also had a difficult relationship with his girlfriend, but if in the film Extremely Wicked, Shockingly Evil, and Vile the problems were because Zach’s character is a crazy maniac, then in real life everything was because of games. Zach loves to play computer games, especially Halo, but his girlfriend did not like it, and she gave Zach an ultimatum and told him to choose: either her or the games. Years later, Zach still plays Halo.
Henry Cavill has become the main idol of youth in just a few years. He starred in good films, kept fit, and played computer games. His character deserves special attention – Henry is very modest, and this, among other things, attracts others even more. Henry Cavill even has a funny story connected with his love for games. While he was playing World of Warcraft, he got a call from Zack Snyder. Henry did not pick up the phone because he was very passionate about the game and some state of affairs depended on him. When Henry finished playing, Zach called again and offered him the role of Superman, which made Henry Cavill world famous. The actor also admitted that he likes PCs more than consoles.
The famous blogger already had a huge audience on YouTube, Instagram and TikTok. He became famous for producing entertaining content, including pranks. After some time, he began to stream how he plays video games. He is one of those streamers who are most active in gaining an audience on Twitch. His performance increased several times, due to which he began to regularly get into the top 10 of the platform. Most often, the blogger appears in the Just Chatting and Grand Theft Auto V categories, but sometimes the creator streams other games.
Michelle is best known for her role in the Fast and the Furious film series, but she also starred in the film adaptation of one of the game series. She starred in several parts of Resident Evil and, perhaps, did this not least because of her love for games. She enjoys playing Halo just like Zach, but also enjoys an evening out with Call of Duty, which is a favorite of many gamer actors.
Samuel L. Jackson, known not only for his countless film roles but also for the catchphrase, which he inserts into many of his films, is very close to games. Not only did he voice various characters, but he also became addicted to the pastime of gaming. According to Samuel, if he turns on GTA, he will lose many hours in it until he finally gets tired of running around with a gun and stealing cars.
The star of Hollywood blockbusters, the dream of thousands of fans, and just a good mother, Megan Fox is sometimes even very close to her fans. She says she enjoys playing Halo with other players who don’t know who she is. Megan also said that she likes to play Mortal Combat and she would like to play the character Kitana in one of the film adaptations. We can say that her three children were very lucky to have their mother because not every parent likes to spend a little time playing.
Ben Foster decided to get into the role of Medivh in the movie “Warcraft” most simply and effectively. He downloaded the game World of Warcraft and began exploring the game world. After some time, he became so addicted to the game that he began to spend almost 24 hours a day in it, interrupting only to eat and sleep. We can say that such preparation helped him a lot, but the film, unfortunately for many fans, did not become a box-office success.
Michael Fassbender had about the same situation as Ben Foster, only from a slightly different side. Michael became the leading actor in the film Assassin’s Creed, based on the Assassin’s Creed series of games, but, unlike Ben, Michael had already played the source material before he received the role. He was very motivated because he loved this game. However, this did not help the film become a box office success and gain the love of audiences and critics. The film nearly failed at the box office, with most critics giving the film low ratings.
Video games have taken over the world so much that this list is only a small part, and the list of star gamers could go on for a very, very long time. Or maybe among your idols, there are gamers?
