Twenty Famous Female Star Wars Fans
Star Wars is more than just a movie franchise, it has become a religion and people have stayed faithful to it since 1977. Fans of the Star Wars franchise range from children that have been introduced to the series by their parents to Tina Fey and Emma Stone. This is one of the few movie franchises that has no concrete demographic.
Normally, when a parody of Star Wars fans is made, it features loser guys that are still living at home with their parents and have no friends except for their fictional Star Wars ones. But the biggest shock is that some of the biggest Star Wars fans in the World are women, even famous celebrities.
Let’s take this minute before the release of the latest installment of the Star Wars Saga, Episode VII: The Force Awakens, is released nationwide to enjoy some of the most famous female Star Wars fans you have not realized loved the franchise. May the Force be With You!
20. Natalie Portman
Star Wars Fandom: Of course Natalie Portman is a fan of Star Wars, she is the mother of Luke Skywalker. She recently solidified her love for Star Wars by wishing she could have been a part of the newest movie. She was upset her character died and would not be a part of the latest installment, otherwise, she would be first in line.
19. Ashley Eckstein
Star Wars Fandom: Does the name sound familiar? That might be for two reasons. She is the wife of Major League Baseball player David Eckstein but she is also the voice of Ahsoka Tano from Star Wars: The Clone Wars. She has been voicing the character from 2008 until 2013 for both the movie and TV series and she also reprised the role this year in Star Wars Rebels. If that wasn’t enough proof, she is also the creator of Her Universe, a company that creates sci-fi inspired clothing for women.
18. Janelle Monae
Star Wars Fandom: Since she was a child, Janelle Monae has been a fan of Star Wars. She would watch it with her grandmother and it was a huge influence on her work today. As for style, one of her biggest icons was Princess Leia and she is know the face of CoverGirl’s new Star Wars inspired make-up line.
17. Tina Fey
Star Wars Fandom: For a long time now, Tina Fey has always admitted to being a huge Star Wars nerd. She even had the toys, like every other child had as a kid, especially the Millennium Falcon. She also once stated on Craig Ferguson’s Late Late Show that she was still somewhat sure she would one day marry Bobba Fett.
16. Alyssa Milano
Star Wars Fandom: When she was six years old, she had dreams of being Princess Leia. She has even named one of her dogs Yoda. But her biggest sign of Star Wars fandom was back in 2004 when she dressed up as the one and only Princess Leia. She is not only a Star Wars fan, she is a huge Sci-Fi geek too.
15. Kate Moss
Star Wars Fandom: This might be one of the biggest surprises on the list but Kate Moss is a secret Star Wars fan. Well, that secret is no longer a secret thanks to The Force Awakens Gwendoline Christie revealing to Yahoo Movies that Kate Moss is indeed a huge Star Wars fan.
14. Amy Schumer
Star Wars Fandom: If you have learned anything about celebrities in Hollywood over the past 20 years, then you know that a lot of them sellout for the right reasons. Amy Schumer did not sellout just to make fun of Star Wars in a sexy photo shoot for GQ earlier this year, she is a real fan. Her hilarious yet stunningly sexy spread made LucasFilm and Disney irate because they did not give her permission to do such a risque shoot using the Star Wars brand.
13. Elizabeth Banks
Star Wars Fandom: There are almost 4,938 ways to prove Elizabeth Banks fandom for the Star Wars franchise. She once replied to a Tweet requesting Elizabeth Banks to direct the next Star Wars film by saying, “Me Too.” She also has had to teach both her sons about the story of Star Wars since they have become enamoured by the entire thing. Her attempt at Chewbacca is another reason she is also one of the funniest people in Hollywood.
12. Sarah Michelle Gellar
Star Wars Fandom: Sarah Michelle Gellar is already a leading lady of Sci-Fi thanks to her fanboy favorite TV series, Buffy the Vampire Slayer. But now she has been added to the Star Wars Rebels cast to voice the Seventh Sister character. She is not simply taking the gig to be with her husband Freddie Prinze Jr, she is doing it because of her passion and love of Star Wars.
11. Julia Roberts
Star Wars Fandom: Is Julia Roberts a true Star Wars fan? It is not definitive but knowing that two of her sons are fans and she rocks the Star Wars gear for them shows us that she at least has an awareness of the Saga. And how many children love Star Wars because they discovered it themselves? Not too many. It is usually handed down from the parents.
10. Felicia Day
Star Wars Fandom: Felicia Day is one of the sexiest gamer’s in the World. She starred in a Web Series for MMORPG gamers. It is only natural that she would be a fan of Star Wars, which she has said countless times again, on TV.
9. Jaime King
Star Wars Fandom: Jaime King is an actress, supermodel, and mother of two. She also lended her voice for Star Wars: The Clone Wars as she was the voices for two characters, Aurra Sing and Cassie Cryar. But her Star Wars fandom is more than just playing a role. Her wedding and her second child’s baby shower were both Star Wars themed. Her love is so strong that she also named her second son James Knight, after the Jedi Knight. Wow.
8. Ariana Grande
Star Wars Fandom: Ariana Grande is a Star Wars fan. The proof is in a Star Wars video she filmed where she helped to answer the question, Who shot first, Han Solo or Greedo? Any true Star Wars fan will understand the background to this important debate and by answering this question in the form of a short film, you know she is more than just milking the Star Wars fame, she is part of the fandom.
7. Anna Kendrick
Star Wars Fandom: When the first trailer for The Force Awakens was released, the first thing Anna Kendrick said on Twitter was, “STAR WARS!!!!! Language and emojis fail to express what’s in my heart at this moment.” Boom.
6. Emma Stone
Star Wars Fandom: Her love was revealed back in 2011 when she was part of the “Use the Force for Good” cancer benefit which took actors like Emma Stone and had them reenact famous scenes from the Star Wars Saga. Her love has since been very obvious recently as she also made a cameo on Saturday Night Live recently for a great segment showing failed Star Wars auditions.
5. Kristen Bell
Star Wars Fandom: Kristen Bell was in the ultimate Star Wars fan movie, Fanboys. If that isn’t enough proof, then use Google Image Search and enjoy. She has worn more than the fair share of Star Wars attire in her day including the incredibly sexy Princess Leia gold bikini.
4. Sara Jean Underwood
Star Wars Fandom: There is a very good chance that Sara Jean Underwood is nothing more than a very smart model that simply milks the largest and richest fan base in the World, Star Wars fans. But even if she only appears to be a Star Wars fan, she does it better than just about anyone else on this list.
3. Angelina Jolie
Star Wars Fandom: Yes sir, Angelina Jolie loves Star Wars. She told Vanity Fair that she is a fan of Boba Fett. She even went on to joke about marrying Boba Fett, in a joking manner of course. Sorry Brad.
2. Megan Fox
Star Wars Fandom: Does a poser own a life-size R2-D2 replica? No because those things can cost anywhere from $5,000 to $12,000 depending on the accuracy of the replica to the Star Wars movie. So yeah, Megan Fox is a big fan and Star Wars nerd.
1. Olivia Munn
Star Wars Fandom: Olivia Munn has been making nerds happy since 2006 so it comes as no surprise that the original sexy G4 host is a big fan of Star Wars. Even her boyfriend Aaron Rodgers, who apparently owns an authentic Obi-Wan Kenobi robe already, is a fan.
