17 Celebrities You Didn’t Know Were Huge Star Wars Fans
Sure, we all love “Star Wars,” but some celebs take that love above and beyond. Here are some of Hollywood’s biggest fans of that galaxy far, far away
Kimmel dressed up like Princess Leia (buns and all), while Guillermo was Yoda on the Halloween episode where Harrison Ford dressed up like a hot dog
Stone was one of many stars in this Stand Up For Cancer “Star Wars” video reciting famous lines like “Help me Obi-Wan. You’re my only hope!” She wears the buns well
For Halloween 2013, the former “Who’s the Boss?” star shared this photo on Instragram of herself in costume as Leia and son Milo as Yoda
NEIL PATRICK HARRIS
NPH shared this truly epic Halloween photo of himself as Obi-Wan Kenobi, husband David Burtka as Han Solo, daughter Harper Grace as Leia and son Gideon Scott as Luke. The Force is strong with this family
As if she needs any more geek cred, “Veronica Mars” star Bell wore the famous Leia slave costume in the 2009 comedy “Fanboys.”
JON STEWART AND STEPHEN COLBERT
In 2014, the two Comedy Central stars battled for the title of the World’s Biggest Star Wars fan, complete with the immortal, “I love you,” “I know” Leia and Han moment.
NICK FROST AND SIMON PEGG
While doing the junket for “Paul” near Area 51, the “Shaun of the Dead” costars did a shot-for-shot recreation of “Star Wars,” except they didn’t get very far and the whole thing disintegrated into a shoving match. C3PO is a bit of gold-plated nancy, isn’t he?
MacFarlane dedicated three whole episodes to the retelling of the original “Star Wars” trilogy (entitled “Laugh it Up, Fuzzball”) with Peter Griffin as Han Solo and himself as “Guy Loading Solo,” who must transport the frozen-in-carbonite hero. Now THAT’s a true fan.
Seth Rogen wields a blaster and a light saber in the Stand Up to Cancer short and he dressed up like Han Solo in “Zack and Miri Make a Porno.” His geek credentials are definitely in order.
KEY AND PEELE
Keegan-Michael Key makes a very smooth Lando Calrissian and Jordan Peele is his biggest fan in this 2013 sketch.
One of the first things the “Transformers” star did when she got on Twitter was to let the world know she has a life-size R2D2. That’s definitely cool, Megan.

When late night host Seth Meyers is accidentally sent a real lightsaber, the battle is on! His adversary, Andy Samberg, also appeared as Luke and Yoda in the Stand Up to Cancer “Star Wars” video.
The comedian took her love of “Star Wars” to the dark side for this sexy GQ photo shoot. It might not be family friendly but it guarantees her a place on the list of most diehard fans.
Who knew, right? Kaling moderated “The Force Awakens” global press event, kicking off the panel with “I know when you think of me, you think ‘huge Star Wars fan.’” But her love for the franchise is legit. As she says: “It’s an action movie, it’s a buddy movie … In fact, it’s everything except those boxing movies that come out every holiday season.”
Yes to everything happening here.
Liz Lemon (Fey)’s only hope of avoiding jury duty in a 2009 episode of “30 Rock”? Pretend to be Princess Leia! Sadly, the ruse does not work.
