Celebrity Sports

By |   May - 29 - 2009

Celebrities are known for all sorts of antics, but many of them have sporting hobbies that aren’t really known to the general public. In fact, celebs like Eva Longoria even got some flack from organizations like PETA for admitting they have hunting skills, so its no surprise that they keep their extracurricular activities somewhat undercover. But we’ve uncovered some celebrity sporting activities that might surprise you.

Eva Longoria

Eva Longoria hunts. Okay, maybe we gave that away in the opening paragraph, but Eva Longoria learned to hunt with her dad and claims to have the skills necessary for skinning deer, pigs, snakes and rabbits. I couldn’t find a picture of Eva Longoria in her women’s hunting clothing but I’d be willing to bet she looks damn good.

Robert Redford

For those who caught A River Runs Through It and remember that this film was directed by Robert Redford it might not be a total surprise that this megastar is also a fisherman, but to others the idea of Robert Redford sitting around waiting for a bite from a fish may seem a bit of a shocker. One interesting bit of trivia, Robert Redford’s first professional acting appearance, no a TV game show, garnered him a fishing rod in lieu of payment.

Gina Davis

Many country music stars enjoy the sport of archery including Craig Morgan, Rusty Tabor, Blake Shelton and Neil Thrasher, but the most successful celebrity who tried her hand at archery had to be Gina Davis who was able to compete in the Olympic semifinals in 1999, although she did not win a spot on the team she did participate as a wildcard entrant in the Sydney International Golden Arrow Competition. Davis says she was not an athlete as a child and only began the sport in 1997 so grab some archery gear and get going, there still may be hope for you yet.

Austin Nichols

Young stud Austin Nichols not only stared in One Tree Hill, The Informers, and the soon to be released Fencewalkers among many others, but he’s also an accomplished competitive water skier. Austin Nichols represented the U.S. Junior Water Ski Team in the Pan-American Championships in 1997 and once upon a time he ranked third in the World Junior Rankings in the Tricks even. He also made two appearances in the Junior U.S. Masters Championships before finding fame and fortune elsewhere. It’s the season for it, so why not check out these skiing accessories and see if you’ve got the skills that Austin has.

Pink and Bai Ling

Singer Pink and gal pal actress Bai Ling were recently seen spending some time on a kayak in Malibu. Not very surprising when you consider what a good workout canoeing or kayaking can be and how incredibly fit both of these ladies seems to be.
