While most of us can only imagine what it's like to be a celebrity, we do have one thing in common with some of Hollywood's finest: a love of coffee.
Plenty of celebs enjoy a cup of Joe once in a while, but a few have really gone the extra mile in establishing themselves as Tinseltown's Most Caffeinated. Here's a look at which a-listers are most likely to be spotted out and about getting their caffeine kick from a cup of coffee.
"True Blood" hunk Alexander Skarsgard loves his coffee…and drinks it black! The 34-year-old hottie has been seen at the Los Angeles coffee shop, Joan's on Third, as well as Ed's Coffee Shop in West Hollywood. The Swedish-born actor, who plays vampire Eric Northman in the hit HBO series, was even spotted reading potential movie scripts while sipping coffee outside a café. We're glad he drinks something that's not blood.
Actress Eliza Dushku, known for her roles in "Buffy the Vampire Slayer," "Tru Calling," and "Dollhouse," finds the espresso a little hard to put down sometimes. On more than one occasion, the 31-year-old beauty has walked the red carpet with coffee cup in hand, and she's been spotted sipping at conventions and other gatherings, as well as with boyfriend Rick Fox. A true coffee fanatic, Dushku has even found some non-traditional uses for the bean; last year she tweeted [sic], "Beauty tip, seriously, add a tspoon of coffee grounds to some facial soap for the softest, most economically amazing exfoliated skin! I LOVE." Now that's hardcore.
Despite the fact that she often springs for sweet or frozen coffee concoctions, pop princess Britney Spears easily makes our list of biggest coffee drinkers. A Starbucks devotee, the 30-year-old singer is frequently seen exiting Los Angeles locations with a coffee in hand. Based on extensive photographic evidence, her drink of choice would appear to be some flavor of Frappuccino, which she usually gets in the 20 oz. "Venti" size. Now that is a lot of caffeine!
Taylor Swift is another celeb who's frequently spotted carrying a cup of coffee. The songstress was recently seen picking up coffee from a West Hollywood Starbucks, where she also purchased a bag of cookies. While visiting family in Tennessee over the holidays, the 22-year-old singer was photographed getting coffee with friends on multiple occasions, and visits to the coffee shop seemed to be a favorite outing for Swift and former flame Jake Gyllenhaal. Though she dined with quarterback Tim Tebow in February, witnesses say Taylor merely "sipped on a café latte" during the meal, while Tebow went for a more substantial meal of chicken paillard, fettuccine bolognese, and cappellini. We think the two would make a great couple, actually, as long as Tim likes coffee!
In addition to being a devoted father to son Bronx, rocker Pete Wentz spends a lot of quality time in various coffee shops. Even though he and Ashlee Simpson filed for divorce in February 2011 (it was finalized in November 2011), the pair have been spotted grabbing coffee together, and the two appear to be maintaining an amiable relationship. The former "Fall Out Boy" has also been snapped taking his son on coffee runs, as well meeting his ex-girlfriend, "Gossip Girl" star Michelle Trachtenberg, for a coffee date. Bottoms up!
