3. Mila Kunis: World of Warcraft

Ashton Kutcher isn’t the only gamer in the Kutcher-Kunis family. Did you know Mila Kunis was once a serious World of Warcraft player?

She even stated her agent would have to log into the game just to message her!

4. Vin Diesel: Dungeons & Dragons 

Vin Diesel, or Mr. Fast and Furious himself, isn’t as serious as his on-screen characters make him out to be. In fact, he has a much softer side - one that loves tabletop role-playing games! Turns out he’s been a huge fan of Dungeons & Dragons and has been playing it for over 20 years. He’s claimed it’s helped him to create rich story worlds and widen his imagination.
