Owen Wilson punches the air with joy as he joins fans at Stamford Bridge supporting Chelsea FC during their first home game of the season

Owen Wilson couldn’t contain his excitement as he supported Chelsea FC from the crowd at Stamford Bridge stadium, London on Sunday. 

The Loki actor was spotted punching the air as the home side scored while facing London rivals Spurs in their first home game of the season. 

The 53-year-old Oscar nominee cut a lowkey figure as he hid beneath a blue baseball cap keeping his blonde locks out of his face.

The star opted for a blue T-shirt which he donned over a long sleeve white top and denim jeans. 

Owen jumped out of his seat along with his two sons who sat either side of him rocking blue Chelsea shirts. 

During half time the actor chatted to friends within the exclusive box and was seen holding two hot drinks.

The match was jam packed and Chelsea fans were hopeful after scoring 20 minutes into the game. 

However, Spurs kept pushing, and the final score was a 2-2 draw.   

Owen was spotted watching the thrilling game from the directors box with the new American owner Todd Boehly. 

Todd cut a smart figure in a blue shirt as he attended the first game since his $5.15billion takeover was completed.

The appearance follows after Owen’s latest superhero film ‘Secret Headquarters,’ became available to stream on Friday. 

The film sees the star play an absent father who turns out to be a superhero, with a lair of world-saving gadgets revealed underneath his bachelor pad.

It’s told primarily from the perspective of Owen’s character’s son — a classic superhero flick set against the growing pains of puberty.

Owen told AFP when he first received the script he read some of the scenes to his young sons, who got ‘caught up in the story.’

‘That’s kind of what appealed to me also, was the more sort of stuff of kind of first crush and that kind of awkwardness of, you know, being in middle school and trying to fit in and that stuff just kind of rang true to me’.

Wilson said the film also brought on some awkward moments for him: a lefty, the actor was scripted as a right-handed superhero.

Draw: The match was jam packed and Chelsea fans were hopeful after scoring 20 minutes into the game but Spurs evened the score by the final whistle to 2-2

‘I think that my throwing motion, if I get any flack about it, I want to get this story out there — I want to get ahead of it,’ the actor known for his roles in Wes Anderson’s oeuvre said with a hint of a smirk.

‘It’s hard to throw with your opposite hand.’

Wilson next is set to appear in the second season of Marvel’s ‘Loki’ on Disney+, in which he plays Mobius M. Mobius, an agent focused on ‘time variant’ criminals.

In 2021 the Dallas-born actor starred in Anderson’s ‘The French Dispatch,’ continuing his long association with the filmmaker.

Asked if there were any forthcoming Anderson projects in the works, Wilson paused before saying, ‘that would be nice too.’

‘Could he join the MCU?’ the actor then quipped, referring to the blockbuster franchise Marvel Cinematic Universe.

‘You never know.’
