Football fandom is a strange, often exhilarating, equally despairing kind of thing. For supporters across the globe, their team chose them, whether that be through family ties, geography or any another ethereal reason. 

For others a selection is made, perhaps due to a team's success or favourite player. Whatever the circumstance that leads an individual to agonise over every result their squad produces; once tethered it's nigh on impossible to sever. 

The weird and wonderful complexities of being a fan do not discriminate. Many of the world's most famous names and faces may not be able to attend every home game - though, plenty still manage to pop up from time-to-time - but that alone should not denigrate their devotion. 

Take Hollywood actress Anne Hathaway, who recently interrupted an interview to  'get Mikel Arteta’s attention' ahead of Arsenal's clash with Aston Villa, or Tom Holland's attempts to lure Kylian Mbappe to the Tottenham Hotspur Stadium. 

Celebrities love their Premier League teams all the same. Here, Mail Sport takes a look at some of those stars and the clubs they've decided to tie their happiness to.

Anne Hathaway 

Let's begin with the Oscar-winning actress, whose love for the red half of north London was previously unknown. The 41-year-old was promoting her new movie, The Idea of You, alongside die-hard Gooner and co-star Nicholas Galitzine.

During a chat with Interview Magazine, the Princess Diaries star said: 'Okay, next question. What formation should Arsenal be playing in?'

Her shocked co-star replied: 'Oh, thank you, Anne Hathaway! The people at Interview don’t know that we’re both diehard Arsenal fans.

'I really believe we’re in a great place right now. Is this a genuine question? Because I will tell you.'

To which Hathaway said: 'I just thought this is a good chance to get Mikel Arteta’s attention.' Galitzine then proceeded to share his view on the system the Spanish coach should deploy. 

Hathaway would have been distraught by the manner in which Arsenal exited the Champions League on Wednesday night, though, the Arsenal faithful can still take hope in winning the Premier League.

Tom Holland 

Spiderman himself is a Tottenham fan. The 27-year-old Londoner has been outspoken in his love of Spurs in the past, and even tried to persuade Kylian Mbappe to join the club during the 2021 Ballon d'Or gala.

Holland said in an interview with Unilad last year that supporting the club has taught him 'resilience'. Feels like a bit of a dig. 

'Tottenham has never won anything,' he added. 'And supporting them is incredibly difficult.' 

Little did he know, the fortunes of Tottenham fans was about to change. The arrival of Ange Postecoglou has breathed new life into a fanbase starved of exciting football. 

And despite their recent wobbles, it's likely Holland retains similar feelings to the ones he shared with the club's website in September

'It seems like they are playing really great football. The lads seem like they are really enjoying it so us, as Tottenham fans, right now, it feels really good.' 

Born in Kingston-upon-Thames, Holland managed to take some time out of his relentless Marvel schedule to see his beloved side get hammered 3-0 at home by Manchester United in 2021.

Harry Styles

On the topic of the Red Devils and celebrity sightings, Harry Styles was all smiles as he was pictured for game at Kenilworth Road in February

The pop superstar has long been a fan of United, having previously been pictured in the club's kit during his time with One Direction.

TV cameras caught Styles meeting the Sky Sports team in the gantry, and he was pictured alongside Gary Neville, Jamie Redknapp, Curtis Davies and Hatters' captain Tom Lockyer prior to kick-off.

Styles is known for his unlikely friendship with Rio Ferdinand, with the former United stalwart bringing Styles one of his shirts to wear on stage for a One Direction concert at the Manchester Arena in 2013.

The 30-year-old also previously enjoyed a kickabout with club legend David Beckham and his son, Brooklyn, in 2015.

Styles was able to enjoy a United win, thanks to a brace from Rasmus Hojlund, on his trip to the smallest Premier League ground.

Cara Delevingne

Talk of Styles and Cara Delevingne's secret relationship was all the rage about a decade ago. The two were spotted in a theatre and then there were reports that Styles rushed back from LA to see her. 

Sadly things didn't' work out, reports citied 'career concerns' but perhaps it was because they could never reconcile their competing footballing loyalties. 

The model, actress and livelong Chelsea fan Delevingne, popped up at Stamford Bridge again this month to passionately cheer on her squad. 

The 31-year-old took a well-earned break from performing in Cabaret, amid her successful West End stage debut. She spent the first half of the match in the owners' box, before enjoying the second half in a £4,000 seat in the dugout.

Fully immersed in the thrilling atmosphere, Delevingne hoisted her blue and white scarf above her head and screamed
