Super Bowl

Will Kansas City Chiefs fan Paul Rudd be at the Super Bowl?

The ‘Ant-Man’ star admits Sunday’s Super Bowl will be a tough watch given he has a vested interest in it.

The ‘Ant-Man’ star admits Sunday’s Super Bowl will be a tough watch given he has a vested interest in it.

There’s no doubt Paul Rudd will be supporting the Kansas City Chiefs in this Sunday’s Super Bowl LVII against the Philadelphia Eagles, but will he be there in person?

Although the 53-year-old was born in New Jersey, his family later moved to the suburb of Lexexa, Kansas, which is when his fandom for the team grew.

When the Chiefs won Super Bowl LIV over the San Francisco 49ers back in 2020, Rudd was in attendance. He was spotted having the time of his life, embracing Super Bowl MVP Patrick Mahomes after the game was over.

“We did it, man!” he joyously screamed after seeing the Chiefs win their first Super Bowl since Super Bowl IV back in 1970 - when Rudd was just nine months old.

Will Paul Rudd attend Super Bowl LVII?

With the team looking to add another Super Bowl to their trophy cabinet, Rudd admits he would like to be in attendance at State Farm Stadium in Arizona for Sunday’s big game, though he stopped short of confirming he’ll be there.

“I’m hoping that I can see it in person,” Rudd told People at the ‘Ant-Man and the Wasp: Quantumania’ premiere in Los Angeles. “Although watching that game is very stressful.

“It’s always tough when you have a real vested interest. Unless it’s a total blowout, but I’m really hoping that they win.”

“I just want to be elated at the end of the game.”

Paul Rudd is a big fan of Patrick Mahomes

Rudd’s embrace of Mahomes following Kansas City’s Super Bowl victory in 2020 is no surprise given he’s never shied away from taking about his fandom.

During an appearance on NFL Network’s Peter Schrager podcast ‘The Season’, Rudd joked that a man his age shouldn’t be such a big fan of a quarterback.

“Let me just say; it is strange for someone my age to look at someone his age and just love him so much. And he’s not in my family,” Rudd said. “If it wasn’t just for the sports thing, it would be creepy.”

When is Super Bowl LVII, and what time does it start?

Super Bowl LVII between the Kansas City Chiefs and the Philadelphia Eagles is scheduled to be played on Sunday, Feb. 12, 2023 at 6:30pm ET.
