They Are Human: Photos of Celebs Eating Pizza Like The Rest of Us

Monica February 9, 2024

One of your guilty pleasures might be indulging in one of the world’s most beloved foods – pizza. But if you think that only ‘normal’ people like yourself like to indulge in a few greasy slices every so often, you’re wrong. Some celebs love munching on cheesy pizza at all hours of the day and night just as much as you do. Indeed, some of the most famous celebrities in the world have been caught on camera mid-chew as they enjoyed their delicious slice of goodness.

This gives them a bit of humanity, as it shows that they’re not always sticking to strict diet plans that are laid out by their expensive personal chefs (although they do that as well). Just like us, they accept that it’s okay to indulge every so often. So for today’s National Pizza Day, we found the best photos of celebrities thoroughly enjoying pizza like the rest of the world. After reading this article, you might just find yourself making a beeline to your nearest pizza joint and placing an order.


Kylie Jenner

As a member of the ultra-famous Kardashian clan, Kylie loves making a big deal out of fitness, beauty, and fashion. If you’ve kept up with the Kardashians, you probably know how strict they are with what they put in their bodies. That’s why seeing Kylie holding up a piece of pizza in this photo is quite surprising. At least she likes to indulge every once and a while. Unfortunately, Kylie was accused of faking eating this pizza just for the photo, though that’s left up to speculation. One person commented on the photo, “Sick and tired of being led to believe that they eat pizza. No one with that body eats pizza.” Maybe she went to the gym for a few hours the following day (via The Sun).

LA Times

Jennifer Lawrence

You probably know Jennifer Lawrence from The Hunger Games, but just because she’s famous on screen doesn’t mean she doesn’t like to enjoy normal things like pizza. And there’s clear proof of it. At the 2014 Oscars, Lawrence sat and enjoyed a slice of delicious pizza with other celebs like Scarlett Johansson and Bradley Cooper. The best part is that she’s enjoying this greasy slice right over her wildly expensive Oscar de la Renta ballgown (via Vogue).


Katy Perry

Perry is apparently not only a queen of singing but a queen of pizza as well. She even once threw slices of pizza into the crowd, which sparked a bit of debate. While it might be nice to have pizza drop from the sky, it wouldn’t have been nice to have it land in your face when you paid for a ticket to her show. Users of Twitter thought of clever captions for the entire ordeal, saying, “Do you ever feel like a pizza dish drifting through the wind, wanting to start again?” Maybe she has her next song lyrics thanks to pizza (via Billboard).


Lili Reinhart

You’re not the only one with a Domino’s obsession. Star Lili Reinhart also has a pizza obsession and isn’t afraid to admit it. The Riverdale star is open and honest about how much she loves that cheesy goodness. She’s even Tweeted, “Brb ordering Dominos now.” It goes hand in hand with her other obsession, which is Chipotle (via Refinery29).

USA Today

Jon Hamm

You probably recognize Jon Hamm from Mad Men and Black Mirror. But during the USA-Canada preliminary round men’s ice hockey game, he was seen on screen again, this time eating a large slice of cheesy pizza. At first, he called the pizza terrible but then went on to defend his hometown favorite (via Fox2Now).


The Cast Of ‘Harry Potter’

Kids enjoy pizza more than adults do and that’s mainly because they have no idea how bad it can be for you. They need more calories so they can fuel their high-energy lives. That’s why the cast of Harry Potter sat down for pizza in the photo above. The trio of Daniel Radcliffe, Emma Watson, and Rupert Grint enjoyed the simplicities of indulgence, with no qualms. One person on Reddit commented on the photo, saying “I wonder if they have pizza in Hogwarts.” That would certainly make Hogwarts a better place (via Reddit).


Barack Obama

Just because he’s the former President of the United States doesn’t mean he can’t enjoy a greasy slice of pizza every once and a while. After Obama was spotted eating pizza, the Cambridge restaurant called it the “presidential pizza party.” One spokesperson at the pizza meeting said, “The President dined on some of Executive Chef Jeff Pond’s signature dishes—including the Shaved Brussels Sprouts Salad and Mushroom and Fontina Pizza. And before he left, he ordered the Carnivore Pizza with mozzarella, tomato, soppressata, sausage, and bacon, to go.” That sounds like a loaded pizza (via People).


Becca Kufrin

This former Bachelorette is looking for her love through pizza. Or, she’s ditched the entire dating scene and is instead using pizza to fill that gap. She doesn’t need roses, she needs pizza! She snacked on a pepperoni slice during a picnic on a Minnesota farm in the photo above (via Yahoo).


Selena Gomez

American singer and actress Selena Gomez made her way to the big screen numerous times throughout her life. When she’s not acting, it’s obvious she loves indulging in pizza like we do. After a black-tie event in 2015, she ate a large slice topped with pepperoni. But in an interview, she admitted her “favorite pizza topping is either a tie between mushroom or jalapenos,” and her least favorite topping is anchovies (via Women’s Health Mag).

Tung Walsh

Dua Lipa

Pizza doesn’t affect Dua Lipa in the slightest. The singer and model can have her pizza and eat it too. She enjoyed a slice while also rocking a gorgeous look without any worries. It’s obvious pizza isn’t a regular item on her food menu but it’s a splurge item every once and a while. If only we could all look that good while enjoying pizza. There was another time she was seen eating pizza while on a private jet, combining two luxuries (via Instagram).


Chrissy Teigen & John Legend

Musician John Legend and The Cravings author Chrissy Teigen left no pie to waste while on vacation in Naples, Italy. That’s what Naples is known for, after all, so it only makes sense they were indulging in such delicious slices. And not only did they splurge on one pizza for two people, but they splurged on four pizzas for two people. That’s the right way to do it! (via People).


Kristen Bell

In a bit of a twist from the normal pizza photo, Kristen Bell is cooking up a colorful, delicious pie topped with loads of vegetables. During an interview, she said her favorite meal to cook was Rainbow Pizza. She said, “Rainbow pizza. It’s my favorite dish to make for my kids. So when I do it, I use purple potatoes. It’s a pizza with different layers of different colored veggies. I cut them up in advance and it gives the kids a chance to sprinkle them on and then they make different designs and they feel much more interested in eating veggies. It goes over very well.” That’s one way to get your kids to eat their vegetables (via Parade)!

Patrick Stewart

Patrick Stewart

There’s no right or wrong age to start enjoying a slice of pizza. Patrick Stewart didn’t think eating a slice of pizza was very important, which is why he waited until he was 72 years old to try his first slice. At least he got to try a slice at least once in his lifetime! He says it’s the hangover cure. He said, “People misunderstood. There was a school of thought that I had eaten my first pizza, but of course, how could that possibly be true? I would have had to have stayed locked up in a cellar. Nevertheless, this was my first slice of pizza… But, you know, I would go in [a pizza place] and order a pizza and eat a whole pizza. It was the concept of the slice that I had never encountered before.” He did have many people fooled into believing it was his first pizza ever, but at least he’s enjoyed it before (via EW).


Emma Bunton

There are only a handful of groups that could ever live up to the greatness that is the Spice Girls. They’ve sold more than a hundred million records and were extremely popular during the 90s and into the early 2000s. The photo above is of “Baby Spice,” and was one of five women who stole the hearts of thousands of people around the world. That’s why that slice of pizza is so well-deserved. She’s previously remarked, “I love vegging out in front of the TV, eating pizza!” There’s nothing wrong with that when you’re so famous (via Quote Fancy).


Justine Ezarik

YouTubers are famous for a reason, and that’s to capture the attention of their fans with their wild antics. Whenever a YouTuber makes a wild video and does something insane, it usually gets hundreds of thousands of views. At least Justine Ezarik is one of the more relaxed YouTubers who prefer to take a selfie with a platter of pizza to involve her followers in her life (via YouTube).


Ellen Degeneres and Martin Scorsese

Even though the Ellen Show earned a bad reputation, it doesn’t mean there weren’t some good parts about Ellen or her show. On the Awards night at the Oscars in 2014, Ellen, who was hosting, made sure it was a night to remember. She ordered a pizza for the crowd of A-listers. One by one, they grabbed a slice to enjoy while the show went on(via Independent).

Funny People Space

Sophia Bush

There’s nothing more satisfying than having a tasty meal and treating ourselves to a delicious treat. Even though it’s obvious that Sophia Bush is dressed to impress, it doesn’t mean she can’t enjoy a delicious slice of pizza. Her red dress matches the tomato sauce on her pizza. She’s probably the best-dressed person on The Today Show (via Pinterest).



If only we were Bono, standing at the pizza shop and gazing at the numerous amounts of available pizzas to select. They stood in Famous Ray’s Pizza in Midtown NYC and took their time selecting which pizza they wanted, before enjoying the delicious slice we’ve all come to know and love (via Daily Mail).

Funny People Space

Jon Stewart

There’s a reason some people become talk show hosts while others do not. Jon Stewart is one of the most popular talk show hosts out there, and during one of his shows, he went on a rant complaining about how the mayor of NYC uses a fork and knife to eat his pizza. He wanted to show the world exactly how you’re supposed to eat pizza, and that using a fork and a knife is a complete disgrace. He even ranted, “Lesson #1, learn how to eat your city’s signature dish … And when you’re in Staten Island, you eat your pizza like a disgusting savage just like every other person in this… city.” He really wants to make sure people stick to eating pizza like a savage (via Eater).


Tom Felton

We’re all too familiar with the main Harry Potter trio, who were shown eating their own pizzas above. But what about the other member of the cast, Tom Felton, who played Draco Malfoy? The movie wouldn’t be the same without him, even though he was cunning, manipulative, and a bit of a bully. He’s allowed to enjoy a pizza slice, too, despite his character on screen. Maybe it’s his peace offering as a way to make amends for his character (via Reddit).

Jessica Simpson

Jessica Simpson

At just 17 years old, Jessica Simpson signed her first record deal. From then on, her debut album sold millions of copies which helped her make her way to fame and stardom. Not only that, but she’s a fashion designer and actress. She even did an ad for Pizza Hut, hence the pizza photo. Unfortunately, she’s allergic to a lot of things in pizza otherwise she’d probably eat it more often. She even took her family for a pizza night out in Boston where they enjoyed playing with pizza dough (via People).


Dwayne Johnson

Most of us couldn’t even dream of finishing this amount of pizza in a day, let alone in a few days. That’s what makes Dwayne Johnson so remarkable as he sat there with this giant box of pizza. Perhaps it was cheat day or he was trying to consume as many calories as possible, otherwise, we’re not sure how else he would finish this pizza. He ate this alongside French fries and a dozen donuts (via The Sun).


Emily Ratajkowski

Being an actress and a model certainly comes with its perks, but it also comes with its downsides. One of those downsides is having a strict diet, which means not eating pizza. But it seems like Emily Ratajkowski does not mind cheating on a meal and having some pizza. She either had an intense craving or it was a cheat day. Whichever the case, she still looks stunning (via Daily Mail).


Harrison Ford

After all of that practice being prepared for the camera, it comes as no surprise that Harrison Ford was as ready as ever when this photo was taken. It’s almost as if he’s an ad for pizza, and trying to promote that cheesy goodness. But it didn’t all go to plan. At the Oscars, Jared Leto said, “He was very hungry, took a big bite of the slice, I looked over my shoulder and … it was all down his shirt.” There’s no other way to eat pizza except in a messy way. He left after trying to clean it up. Hopefully, his pizza craving was satisfied (via SBS).

USA Today

Brad Pitt

It’s a known fact that Brad Pitt looks good doing just about anything and everything. During the Oscars at the Dolby Theater, he was spotted enjoying pizza with Angelina Jolie in Los Angeles. He looks like he’s truly enjoying that pizza and not even paying attention to anything else around him (via Instagram).


Bella Hadid

Despite being a model, Bella Hadid doesn’t shy away from her love for pizza. In an interview, she said, “My favorite go-to snack, is probably pizza at least once a day.” At the very least, it goes against the norm of supermodels having to stick to a strict diet and be a certain level of skinniness. You only live once (via WMagazine).


Miles Stephens

Who said you had to be a celebrity adult to enjoy pizza? Celebrity kids can enjoy pizza too, which is why Miles Stephens enjoys a slice now and again. As the son of John Legend and Chrissy Teigen, who also love pizza as we chronicled above, he’s getting his fix of pizza. Teigen captured the photo of him, “pizza party!” (via US Magazine).


Kristin Chenoweth

On her way to the 2019 Tony Awards, Kristin Chenoweth took a bite of her pizza. Her outfit and fabulous shoes look stellar next to her delicious slice of pizza. It turns out she can’t pass by a 7-Eleven without buying a slice or a hot dog. She said, “Their pizzas are great y’all. Also their hot dogs. They just turn them around. You can get them however you want.” Looks like she has her favorite pizza shop (via Yahoo).


Matt LeBlanc

From the popular sitcom Friends, Matt LeBlanc is spotted indulging in a delicious slice of pizza. It’s a great way to add a plot device or enhance characterization. The character of Joey loves pizza, making him even more relatable. The show even has its very own cookbooks for fans to replicate some of the meals on the show (via The Things).


Nick Jonas & Priyanka Chopra

The couple, who wed in December 2018, know that there’s always time to chow down on a good slice of pizza. At the Cannes Film Festival back in 2019, the two were spotted enjoying a delicious slice of pizza. And there’s no better place to eat pizza than on a beautiful balcony, with your loved one (via News18).



Even though eating pizza isn’t a regular thing for most of the celebrities on this list, it’s at least reassuring to see them enjoying the most delicious food on the planet. This picture of Beyonce with a slice is iconic. It takes a lot to be in as incredible shape as she is, but it’s reassuring to see her enjoying a slice of simple pizza. You can find her favorite pizza spots in NYC (via US Magazine).


Pope Francis

Watching Pope Francis eat a pizza is a blessing. According to the New York Daily News, “The 86-year-old pontiff enjoyed pizza Thursday at Gemelli Polyclinic, where he’s recovering from bronchitis, according to the Vatican. That’s a good sign for Pope Francis, who the Catholic Herald once wrote had a “pizza obsession.” There’s no better way to recover than a slice of delicious pizza (via NY Daily News).


Chris Hemsworth

Of course, the Thor star loves to indulge here and there, and when it comes to pizza, there’s no holding back. This photo was taken in 2021. It seems like he had enough junk food on his table to feed a village for an entire week. He ended up washing down all that pizza and junk food with a pint of beer (via Daily Mail).


Matt James

Back in 2022, Rachael Kirkconnell snapped a photo of her boyfriend, Matt James, eating a slice of pizza. He even talked about the most life-changing pizza dishes he had around the world. His favorite was in Philidelphia, where he admitted, “They have perfected the Philly cheesesteak and they have perfected pizza. We’ve strongly considered moving to Philadelphia solely to be in striking distance of Angelo’s Pizzeria.” He’s probably not the only one who wants to live closer to pizza (via Daily Mail).


Padma Lakshmi

One way to cut carbs is to do with Padma Lakshmi, and that’s to eat pizza in a tub with a glass of wine. It just goes to show how much of a slice she is above the rest of us. This probably tops all the other ways celebrities have eaten pizza since there’s no better pairing than wine, and no better location than the bathtub (via Hollywood Life).
