Michael Vartan: That Other Thing I Do
The actor grew up in soccer-mad France but became a hockey devotee soon after seeing his first game at 6. "At the NHL level, it's so violent, so awesome," he says. "What's not to love?" He took to the ice himself at 20, but practiced for a whole year before entering his first game. "I didn't want to be the guy with the shiny new equipment who couldn't skate backwards," says Vartan, who has since played in a pickup league near his L.A. home for more than 20 years.
Now he's passing on his passion to Skaar, whom he wed in April. "Well, she really has no choice," he says. "I told her, 'Honey, I'll cook and clean, but I'm watching the game!'"
