Catherine was born and raised in the Welsh countryside, but that didn’t stop her from enjoying the fruits of America’s favorite game of chance. Before starring in The Mask of Zorro and moving on to Hollywood stardom, Catherine enjoyed the occasional game of bingo. She’s known for hosting tournaments and competitions for her friends.
Since moving to America Catherine has adapted to the American version of the game. The British style of play includes 90 balls, whereas the American version uses 75. Which style do you prefer?
Now, as you can guess, this is only the first of the celebrities that are known to have a passion for bingo. The next one should surprise you as we’re talking Royalty!
British Royal Family
Do you think that the monarchs of England play bingo at Buckingham Palace? Believe it or not, the game is said to be enjoyed by most of the Royal Family on special occasions and holidays.
We can just see it now, the Queen calling the numbers as the balls are generated and Prince Williams standing up and shouting “BINGO!” Now we haven’t been able to verify if this is 100% accurate or not, but we like to believe that even the UK’s monarchs like to have a good time just like us!
One of the UK’s biggest pop stars is also a bingo regular. We’re talking about Robbie Williams
Robbie’s career started with the band Take That in which he was one of the lead singers. After leaving Take That his commercial success had a meteoric rise as a solo singer/songwriter.
Today Robbie continues to grow his musical career and is also a bingo regular. He’s known to attend various tournaments in and around Hollywood. The thing we love the most about Robbie is that he loves to participate in charity bingo events, helping out those in need.
Keep up the good work Robbie!
Bingo and his first name start with the letter “B” but that’s not all they have in common. Rumor has it that even the president of the USA is a fan of bingo. Although he spends much more time on the basketball court, we can imagine that might always be up for a classic game of bingo!
Of course, president Obama is just another one in a long list of political figures who are known for having a soft spot for bingo. That’s why, the next time you’ll play online, think that you might be playing next to a celebrity! After all, online bingo is known for helping people not only engage, but also keep their identity a secret!
Last but not least, it’s time to roll out the red carpet for the one and only Academy Award winner Russell Crowe also known as the gladiator of bingo! When he’s not busy preparing for the big screen you can bet your bottom dollar that he may be playing in a bingo game.
Why you ask?
One of Russell’s first jobs before he became a famous actor was at a local bingo hall as a number announcer! Can you believe it? Unfortunately the gig didn’t last that long as he got fired for his potty mouth.
Thank goodness he didn’t pursue a career as a bingo caller so that now we can now enjoy his movies, which are just as fun-filled as bingo!
