Russell Crowe bought the South Sydney Rabbitohs, his favorite team rugby team, back in 2006. Rumors emerged last year that he was selling his stake of the team, but the rumors have been shot down by his camp.

The pop star is a partial owner of the Cleveland Cavaliers. He bought his stake back in the LeBron days, and it's safe to say that times have changed in Cleveland. I'm sure Usher is hoping the King will return in 2014.

8. Will Smith

Lachey reportedly tried to purchase part of the Cincinnati Reds back in 2005, but he had to settle for the Triple-A Tacoma Rainiers. Still, not too shabby.

Of course Bill F'n Murray owns a baseball team. In fact, he partially owns four minor league baseball teams: St. Paul Saints, Charleston RiverDogs, Hudson Valley Renegades and Brockton Rox.
