Playing in a highly-populated area on the west coast, the 49ers have the advantage of playing in front of some of Hollywood’s biggest and brightest stars. From famous musicians to actors and actresses, the Bay Area’s finest haven’t been shy about their allegiance to the 49ers. From the disappointing Chip Kelly and Trent Ballke era to the Shanahan-Lynch era of today, these famous fans have stuck with their team through thick and thin.
Here’s list of the top celebrities that are part of the 49ers’ faithful:
Earl “E-40” Stevens is a legendary bay area rapper and die-hard 49ers fan. Stevens, who is from Vallejo, California, was a huge supporter of Kyle Shanahan’s team during the 49ers’ run to the Super Bowl in 2019. He made frequent guest appearances on 49ers Pregame Live and even dropped a 49ers-themed song “Niner Gang.”
In 2017, when the New England Patriots traded Jimmy Garoppolo to the 49ers, E-40 showed his excitement for the new San Francisco QB. It would be interesting to know what Stevens thinks of Trey Lance and Jimmy G sharing the position next season.
Iguodala, who played on the Golden State Warriors from 2013 to 2019, is known as a 49ers fan around the Bay Area.
In 2013, during his first year as a Warrior, Iguodala took part in the first-ever dual Twitter takeover of the 49ers' account with actress and supermodel Marisa Miller during a preseason match against the Minnesota Vikings. And the 49ers congratulated Iguodala for an outstanding game against the Cleveland Cavaliers during Game 6 of the 2015 NBA Finals.
Renner is probably best known for his role as Hawkye in Marvel's Avengers films, but he is a lifelong 49ers fan. Renner visited with 49ers players in the locker room back in 2015, and was even part of NFL Network's film, "A Tale of Two Cities" documenting the heated rivalry between the 49ers and Cowboys.
In 2020, he was among the many fans and celebrities who showed their support for the 49ers in the Super Bowl LIV on Twitter.
Schneider grew up in Pacifica, California and attended Terra Nova High School as a huge 49ers and Giants fan. The "Saturday Night Live" alum has even offered to purchase the 49ers from owner Jed York in the past.
Schneider has probably been one of the 49ers most vocal fans, as in 2015 and 2016 he took to social media to criticize the team's owner and CEO Jed York. The actor even tried to put on a consortium of buyers to sell him the franchise, but now that things are back on track for San Francisco, Schneider seems more at peace. In 2020, he tweeted out his support and happiness for the 49ers heading to the Super Bowl 54.
Actress and singer Bella Thorne has been a longtime 49ers fan ... In good and bad times. In 2013, Thorne tweeted her support for San Francisco while the team was down against the Baltimore Ravens during Super Bowl XVLII.
Thorne showed her fandom by wearing a Frank Gore jersey and tweeting that she will "stick with a team through good and bad." Well, hopefully for Thorne and all the 49ers fans, the bad is a behind them now that they have Lance on their roster.
Born in Berkeley, Samberg is a big 49ers fan. The "Saturday Night Live" and "Brooklyn Nine Nine" cast member has showcased the red and gold colors with his music group The Lonely Island in the past.
In 2014, he suffered with all San Francisco fans when the 49ers lost to the Seattle Seahawks in the NFC Championship game. Samberg then had harsh words for Seattle during an appearance on the "Late Show with David Letterman." The actor said he would have rooted for the Broncos in the Super Bowl and that the Seahawks could "chop wood."
Miller has always showed her love for the 49ers since she was a kid. The actress and supermodel once told the NFL Network that she grew up a fan during San Francisco's 1980s dynasty, as she went to games with her dad.
After taking over San Francisco's Twitter account back in 2013 with Andre Iguodala, in 2017 she posed as NFL and 49ers Superfan and continued to show her support to her favorite team on social media.
This is a funny one. Scott Eastwood was born in Monterey and grew up playing football, but while he is a loyal 49er fan, his dad Clint isn't so.
Scott Eastwood revealed in an interview in October 2019 that while his father was born in San Francisco, he is a 49er fan depending on the day and on the season.
