The following celebrities love to play the field.

Or the basketball court. Or sometimes the ice hockey rink.

In light of Eliza Dushku recently splitting from Rock Fox - along with Chantel Jeffries going clubbing in Houston with Johnny Manziel - the THG staff asked our research department to come up with a list of famous celebrities who have gotten it on with big-time athletes.

Some were flings. Others are marriages that remain intact to this day. And one resulted in a popcorn-based example of PDA that will forever be seared into our memory.

Click around now and be reminded of the actresses, reality stars and models who have had front row, naked seats to some of the hottest sports action around...

Kim Kardashian
Kanye West is the exception, not the rule. Kim Kardashian has gotten it on with Reggie Bush, Miles Austin and Kris Humphries.

Kate Upton and Justin Verlander started dating in late 2012. Most would congratulate the Detroit Tigers ace for landing the ultimate WAG - the trophy girlfriend to end all trophy girlfriends.

If you care more about baseball than boobs, however, you might be screaming for Verlander to drop Kate like a hot rock.

The Cy Young winner has been struggling this season and many believe Upton is proving to be a distraction that Verlander simply can't handle.

If that's the case, at least Justin can take comfort in the fact that he's not the first athlete to fall victim to the curse of Kate:

Justin Verlander
Kate and Justin have been on and off for years. They split in 2013, leading to an epic post-season performance by the Tigers ace. Now that they're back together, Verlander is carrying a career-high ERA.

Yes, despite the fact that Upton just turned 22 earlier this month, she's already, um...rounded the bases with a number of athletes, kinda-athletes, and...mascots?

Everybody has to start somewhere, right? Right. For some of Hollywood's best and brightest, that somewhere is on the playing field and not the movie set. 

Yes, it's true. Many of our favorite stars had aspirations of becoming professional athletes when they were children, just like you probably did. (But not me. I always dreamed of being a rock star. We can all see how THAT turned out.)

You might know that Justin Bieber loves to play hockey, but did you know he's also pretty decent at basketball? And did you know that rapper 2 Chainz was a star high school hoops standout in Atlanta?

Kate Upton, SI model, actress, and all around hottie used to ride horses! And then there's Duchess Kate Middleton who is great at basically everything she does, including besting Prince William in sailing.

Take a look at these 13 celebrity athletes who are probably better athletes than you. And me. (Hey, we're all good at something, right? Right. Let's keep telling ourselves that.)

Patrick Dempsey
When he isn't steaming up the screen as McDreamy on Grey's Anatomy, Patrick Dempsey likes to heat up the pavement behind the wheel of race cars.

There's just no need to post fake Kate Upton topless photos. First and foremost, the real ones are already tremendous. Second, she might sue you over the fakery.

The image-doctoring folks at Celeb Jihad found this out the hard way this week.

The phony image purports to be one of the Kate Upton bikini photos from this year's SI, with the teaser, "Kate Upton Naked Outtake From SI Swimsuit 2014."

It's clearly a fake, and it's already been taken down thanks to Upton's lawyers.

The supermodel's legal team threatened an immediate lawsuit against the celebrity gossip site and noted incredulously that the photo "has been airbrushed."

Basically, the people at Celeb Jihad are idiots. Why mess with perfection?

Look at her work those abs. Yes, we are staring only at her abs.

Carol Alt, who covered the 1982 Sports Illustrated Swimsuit Issue, is not what you'd call impressed by 2012, 2013 and 2014 cover girl Kate Upton. Like at all.

  • Carol Alt Picture
  • Kate Upton in Black

"What I don't understand with Kate [Upton] is what's all the hullaballoo," Alt, 53, said of the 21-year-old beauty. "There are many covers of Sports Illustrated."

"I don't get what the hullabaloo is. I think what it is is that in this moment there's just so much social media and that's why she's had more word of mouth."

While she may not get the mass appeal, Alt is not dissing Kate Upton personally; Carol says she's as just as deserving of her success as the others.

Therein likes the issue, though, as far as she's concerned. The hype.

"I like Kate, she's a pretty girl," she continued. "But all the girls are nice, and all the girls are pretty. Every cover, to me, deserves to be talked about."

Well yes, but this is worthy of SOME hullaballoo ... don't you think?!

Kate Upton is running it back (to back to back)! The 21-year-old beauty has landed on the cover of Sports Illustrated for the third consecutive year after all!

Sort of.

Chrissy Teigen, Nina Agdal and Lily Aldridge grace the front cover of the 50th Anniversary issue of the SI Swimsuit edition. This year, Kate gets the back cover.

Sports Illustrated revealed the bonus backside cover featuring Kate Upton today. On it, she flaunts her cleavage in a pink bikini in the Cook Islands.

Needless to say, she's smoldering as always. The supermodel previously showed off her famous curves on the iconic swimsuit issue cover in 2012 and 2013.

If there's any doubts that she's happy for her model colleagues, Kate put them to rest, congratulating the aforementioned trio of bikini babes on Twitter.

"OMG! So happy for @LilyAldridge @chrissteigen and @NinaAgdal!!" she wrote on February 14. "What a gorgeous cover!! Loving the booty for vday."

Also gorgeous? The Kate Upton photos after the jump. Safe to say Sports Illustrated outdid itself again in its bid to accelerate climate change:

Kate Upton absolutely sizzles in Sports Illustrated once again this month, as the magazine's 2014 Swimsuit Issue features the former cover girl in all her bikini-clad glory.

It's possible Kate is getting even hotter with age ... though she is only 21.

As the cover model for the world famous magazine in 2012 and 2013, and one of SI's top "rookies" in 2011, she and the publication go back a long way.

A long and very smoldering way. Seriously, thank you Sports Illustrated.

While she passed the crown to Chrissy Teigen, Lily Aldridge and Nina Agdal for this year's cover, Kate still makes her presence felt in the annual swimsuit spectacular.

Scroll through the Kate Upton photos below and see for yourself!

Kate Upton is the object of many eligible bachelors' affection, so it's no surprise that someone decided to go all out and ask for her hand in marriage.

It wasn't Justin Verlander, though her boyfriend was present for this. Stuff, the mascot for the NBA's Orlando Magic, was the one who did the honors!

Kate Upton, Ring

The 21-year-old bombshell and the 30-year-old handsome athlete attended the Magic's game against Oklahoma City Thunder on Friday in Orlando.

As soon as the Tigers pitcher stepped away from their courtside seats, the neon green dragon made his move. With some serious bling, no less!

"Thanks @STUFF_mascot for the proposal tonight! Great game!," an enthusiastic Upton tweeted after the game, along with a fun-loving pic of her ring.

Stuff replied to Upton and shared a picture of the proposal ...

Kate Upton and Justin Verlander are reportedly back on again after a weekend rendezvous in the Bahamas! The two were looking "very cozy," onlookers say.

The model, 21, and Detroit Tigers ace, 30, "spent all weekend in the Bahamas together" on the gorgeous tropical island St. Thomas, Us reports.

"We spotted them looking very cozy having dinner at the restaurant Mahogany House near Lyford Cay," says the witness of the long-rumored couple.

Kate Upton, who had her hair in a bun with a blue scarf, and Verlander, wearing a white button-down, were "sitting on the same side of the table" for the meal.

That seals it right there. Totally a couple!

The duo met while shooting a commercial for MLB 2K12 in 2012, and Verlander's grandfather of all people confirmed they were together for a time.
