25 Vintage photos of celebrities playing sports

Being a celebrity is stressful and hard, it’s not always fun most especially when other stalkers are following you around, like paparazzi invading your personal space. The only option to unwind is to go on a vacation, party, or do sports. That is if they have no other conflicts with their busy schedule.

From scoring 18 holes in the golf course to hitting the slants (and unquestionably a little ski apres), these vintage photos of celebrities doing their favorite sports demonstrate that aged Hollywood stars realized how to take care of business. Well, not all celebrities play ball, some are just great at acting. That’s showbiz!
