Your Favorite Celebs and Their Favorite Winter Sports
Celebrities are often sports lovers just like anyone else, whether they’re watching a favorite team from the sidelines or trying their hand at a sport that is often off-limits for everyone else. They may have a favorite sport that keeps them fit or they may love the adventure and action and adrenaline rush of sliding down a snow-covered mountain or strapping on some skates to spend time with their kids.
Funnyman Jimmy Fallon has indulged his love of the luge, a type of sled on which the occupant reclines as it shoots down a hollowed-out lane. A luge can reach speeds of up to 45mph or even faster, so it’s a fun sport that provides plenty of thrills.
Denise Richards is an avid snowboarder and is often seen on the slopes on a board, navigating her way around skiers and other boarders. The sport is known to work your core so it may be the reason behind her rock-hard abs, and she’s been seen introducing the sport to her daughters. They may follow in their famous mother’s footsteps with such a great head start on fitness.
Also on the slopes are Mariah Carey and Nick Cannon, often seen skiing together in Aspen, Colorado, every winter. Aspen is a great place to watch the stars as Mariah and Nick are not the only ones who spend their winter breaks on those slopes. Kate Hudson is often seen on the slopes of Aspen during winter as is Heidi Klum, who was often spotted with singer Seal when they were still together.
Ice skating is also a favorite sport of celebs during winter; they are often spotted on their own or with a special someone, or with their children. Pippa Middleton, the most famous royal in-law, is often seen ice skating during winter months in London. She is typically seen with her girlfriends, a great way to spend the long winter months when you’re between relationships! Angelina Jolie was recently spotted with four of her six children ice skating in Budapest while on location for her directorial debut, “In the Land of Blood and Honey.”
Another set of famous parents, Tom Cruise and Katie Holmes, were often seen spotted ice skating with their daughter Suri before their recent divorce. The little girl reportedly was able to hold her own on the rink, no doubt due to years of ballet classes. Cruise is rumored to have often taken dates ice skating before finally marrying Katie Holmes, so no doubt their daughter has inherited a love of the sport from her famous father.
