Celebrity Appearances at X Games
Celebs at X Games
June 2020 marks 25 years of X Games. Since 1995, we've been spreading the shred all over the globe, and in that time, we've attracted everyone from the top athletes to comedians to musicians to Hollywood glitterati. Keeping track of every celebrity that has attended X Games throughout the years was no easy feat, and we've definitely missed a few names along, but what follows is a small nod to names you might recognize that have attended X Games. Welcome to "Celebs at X Games!"
His brother may have been busy shooting "30 Rock" but Stephen Baldwin, star of "Bio-Dome" and "The Flintstones in Viva Rock Vegas" made a few appearances at X Games Los Angeles over the years. He went on to produce an action sports film in the mid '00s.
Former professional footballer David Beckham was an avid X Games fan when the games took place in Los Angeles. Here, Beckham enjoys the Big Air view.
Jason Biggs, star of "American Pie" and "Saving Silverman," enjoys the sights at an early X Games. Sadly, Nadia did not join him.
Adam Carolla, Andy Dick, Jimmy Kimmel
Before X Games moved to Los Angeles, we spent a few years in San Francisco, which was close enough to brush up against some rising stars of the time. At the time, Adam Carolla and Jimmy Kimmel were hosts of "The Man Show," while Andy Dick was just finishing up his run on "NewsRadio."
Technically, he came from skateboarding, so this isn't a stretch. But Rob Dyrdek's presence at X Games transcended his skating when he went on to host the MTV show "Ridiculousness." We're still lucky to have him stop by from time to time.
American professional golfer Rickie Fowler not only attended X Games, he made some trick shots from atop the Big Air ramp on Chick Hearn Ct. in downtown Los Angeles.
Burt Jenner is the eldest son of retired Olympic gold medalist Caitlyn Jenner. He's also a former X Games athlete, having competed in Stadium Super Trucks at X Games Austin 2014 and 2015.
Spike Jonze (far left) seen here with BMX rider Mat Hoffman, "Jackass" director Jeff Tremaine and BMX freestyle originator Bob Haro, technically came from BMX and skateboarding, but he's gone on to bigger and brighter feature films such as "Him" and "Where The Wild Things Are." He's also made more than a few appearances at X Games Los Angeles.
"Christmas Vacation" star Juliette Lewis was previously married to skateboarder Steve Berra (far left) and made the odd appearance at X Games qualifiers and events to show her support for her husband. Here, the couple joins former X Games host Sal Masakela for a photo op.
Lil Jon attends an X Games in Los Angeles. He's a big skate fan, and his song "Turn Down For What" has been used more than a few times at X.
Mike D. of The Beastie Boys poses for the camera before entering an X Games in Los Angeles. He did not have to fight for his right to party at X Games.
In a way, pop star Pink was obligated to attend X Games. She's married to former X Games athlete Carey Hart. He's the first motocross rider to attempt a backflip at X Games.
"My Name is Earl" star Giovanni Ribisi not only attended X Games. He wanted an inside look at production.
Another familial obligation: Paul Rodriguez Senior. You might know him from stand up comedy or his appearance in the Kevin Bacon film "Quicksilver," but he's also P-Rod's father and biggest fan.
Perhaps best known for his appearance as Mini-Me in the Austin Powers films, Verne Troyer enjoyed a wealth of success on reality television and was a huge hit at X Games. Troyer, who passed away in 2018, additionally made an appearance at the ESPN Action Sports and Music Awards in the early '00s.
Save the best for last: Twiggy the Water-Skiing Squirrel made an appearance at X Games Austin that will go down in history as one of her last public performances. Now happily retired and living in Florida, Twiggy was a big success at X!
