Update:
Its Super Bowl Sunday and Bengals fans are preparing for their first in 33 years, but what about celebrities? Are they in on this too? Let's take a look.

Super Bowl Sunday has arrived and with that, fans the world over will understandably be showing their allegiance to either the Cincinnati Bengals or Los Angeles Rams in full force.Here we take a look at some celebrity fans of the Bengals who are absolutely ‘stoked’ for the big game. From those who were kids the last time Cincinnati played for the Lombardi trophy to those who think they cursed the Bengals chances AND even those who consider themselves full on geeks, here we go:

Woody Harrelson

Harrelson, who first came to fame in the 80s for his role in the now legendary sitcom ‘Cheers,’ explained back in 2016 that he thought he was responsible for cursing his “beloved” Bengals, while he was still a regular on Cheers. Funnily, Harrelson revealed that “after the last Bengals playoff game, I cursed their fate” during an episode of the popular show, which was still on the air at the time of the team’s last playoff win. It would seem that “curse” has now come to an end as the Bengals are one win away from Super Bowl glory!

George Clooney

One of Hollywood’s more stylish leading men in recent years, Clooney has played a wide array of roles from World War II army captains, to classy Nespresso commercials. Where does his heart lie when it comes to Sunday’s big game? In 2013 when strolling the red carpet at the Academy Awards, Clooney did in fact reveal that he was a staunch Bengals fan.

He’s effortlessly really cool and funny and endearing. And I think everybody’s really pulling for him.” Asked if he had managed to convince his girlfriend to root for the same team? “No, I don’t think so. I think we’re going head to head,” he said with a laugh.
