Female Celebrities Playing Video Games: Fun or Addiction?

There is a common misconception people have perpetuated regarding celebrities in the entertainment industry: they are so busy with being rich and famous, so overloaded with making new movies, singing new songs, show up on magazine covers, being chased by paparazzi or unsuccessfully trying to hide their personal lives from the media, that they actually don’t have “human” hobbies or passions and no time at all to indulge themselves into mundane activities.

You hear a lot about some famous movie stars “taking a moment” to spend their free time together with their families, creating some fashion clothes lines or advertising for some high – end products and you are tempted to ask yourself “when do they have time to eat”? Well, many are dieting, but this doesn’t mean some celeb figures out there don’t share human habits with the rest of us mortals. And you would be stunned to learn that there are a lot of celebrities playing video games. Surprised? Let’s see some of the female celebrities playing video games for fun!

Now this may come as a surprise indeed, because you wouldn’t take Kim as the passionate geek gamer type of girl, especially since she is famous for a lot of many other activities, hobbies and behaviors that have nothing to do with playing games. Or do they? Is Kim addicted to gaming, or did she found just another way to keep the media’s eyes stuck to her persona? The thing is, she Tweeted about the upcoming release of Black Ops II and she sounded genuinely interested in the game back in the day, so if you suspected her of subtle endorsement, it seems it is not the case. However, to add surprise to her CV, her enthusiast statements about gaming might be exactly the boost of image she could just pull off for fun. If she is honest about playing video games, kudos to Kim, as we just started to like her more now.

Beautiful Mila Kunis stated that she is addicted to video games, especially Call of Duty. Now imagine Kunis and Kardashian amazing the world in a killing spree in the universe of one of the best shooters that ever blessed the geek world. You’d think Call of Duty would attract only men, but here we have two female superstars who are “women” from head to toe and who publicly declared their passion for firing big guns. Mila Kunis describes herself as an avid and competitive gamer and we hope she’s also pretty good at it, because we just love pretty girls becoming badass killers. Perhaps in the future, due to her video gaming passion and skills, Mila will become the next female heroine in blockbuster action movies and play fierce female characters. That would be an interesting thing to see on the silver screen.

Sweet Jessica Alba plays Wii for sports and for burning some calories in the fun way, although she is perfect enough to not need more burning. However, despite the general assumption that games are bad for people, Jessica’s example is good to remember: play, keep yourself in shape and good health, have fun with friends and keep your kids moving, these are actually good advice. On the other side of the fence, we have Jodie Foster who is a Guitar Hero fan and we take the opportunity to salute Jodie for her good taste in spending free time, because Guitar Hero is indeed a challenging and fun game to play at any age.
