In 2012, Stone confessed to the Daily Beast that she was a hardcore nerd, but, oh, you had no idea how deep her nerdiness ran. By all appearances, the Oscar-winning actress is a major Star Wars junkie. She appeared in a Stand Up to Cancer PSA in which she uproariously portrayed Princess Leia. She also did an SNL skit in which she "auditioned" for the next Star Wars movie.

From Avatar to Star Trek, Zoe Saldana has starred in some of the biggest science fiction movies of modern time. But her heart just might always belong to Star Wars. The actress's Instagram page is chock-full of photos celebrating her love of the legendary franchise. Among them: a pic of Saldana running into some stormtroopers, and a shot of Saldana with her family sporting Star Wars socks.

The velvet-voiced crooner once posted several photos to his Instagram page in which he documented his love for Star Wars. Soon, fans were showering him with Star Wars-related gifts. There was just one problem, however: Smith had not even seen all of the Star Wars movies. But that was in 2015, so hopefully Smith has had a chance to catch up on the series and become the uber-fan you know he's always been at heart.

Tina Fey has never held back on her love for Star Wars. In her book Bossypants, she talked about how she owned Star Wars figurines as a kid and how the movies inspired her imagination. On the show 30 Rock, she dressed up as Princess Leia twice (and Carrie Fisher was one of the series' funniest guest stars in a Season 2 episode). And during an appearance on The Graham Norton Show, Fey and Kurt Russell reenacted a scene from one of the movies. That is some impressive Star Wars devotion.
