You don’t have to like football to watch the Super Bowl. And if you’re a celebrity, you don’t even have to like football to attend it. The sidelines have played host to all sorts of A-listers over the years, from exes like Brad Pitt and Angelina Jolie to current couples like Catherine Zeta-Jones and Michael Douglas. It’s also operated as a mother-daughter night out for Kourtney Kardashian and Kris Jenner, an unlikely girls night for Taraji P. Henson and Amy Adams, and probably a somewhat normal night for Mark Wahlberg. Some, like Hilary Swank, get in the element, while others—namely, Lady Gaga—make it clear they’ve never been the sporty type. Below, take a look back at some of the most famous faces spotted at games past.
