9 Male Celebrities Who Really Love Cats

There’s something so adorable about men who love cats. There’s a weird sexist stereotype that men are supposed to like dogs, so it’s really cute when guys decide that stereotypes don’t matter. Sometimes man’s best friend is a cat. Here are nine celebrity guys who really love cats!

1. Dave Franco

Dave describes himself as a “weird cat guy” who prefers to stay home with his cats Harry and Arturo rather than go out and party. He said in an interview with People magazine that when he hasn’t seen someone in a while, they’ll always ask how his cats are doing and that every photo on his phone is of his cats doing something funny.

2. James Franco

The Francos are a cat family! James says his mom instilled a love of cats in her kids. James adopted a cat he worked with and her stunt double! His pet cats are named Lux and Max and he’s said he couldn’t end up with a woman who didn’t love them.

3. Russell Brand

Russell Brand has a cat named Morrissey (named after another celebrity animal lover). Brand loves his cat so much, he made a video about him and aired it on Ellen.

4. Marc Maron

Comedian Marc Maron is known for two things above all — being extremely crotchety and really loving his cats. He calls his home, where he records his famous podcast WTF, the Cat Ranch. Maron says he loves his cats because he feels like any affection he gets from them is earned.

5. Norman Reedus

That’s right, Darryl has a cat, and that cat has its own Instagram. Norman posts so many pictures of his cat, Eye in the Dark, that a fan set up an account just for her — @normans_cat. Norman said when he adopted her, the cat was hissing and scratching and he thought nobody else would love her. Norman is also a vegetarian and an advocate against animal testing.

6. Macklemore

Ian Somerhalder is straight-up obsessed with cats. He talks about his life as a dad to his cat Moke and brings him everywhere, including to the Vampire Diaries set and even the People’s Sexiest Man Alive shoot. Ian and his wife Nikki Reed have three cats they rescued from shelters, and Ian uses his foundation to try and keep stray animals from being put down.

9. Jesse Eisenberg

Jesse Eisenberg loves cats so much he made this video for Team Cats in the cats vs. dogs competition at the New Yorker Festival. Jesse is passionate about helping animals and he fosters cats, which means his apartment is sometimes overrun by kitties until they can find a permanent home.
