Celeb Facts - Celebs Admit To Binge-watching On Netflix

  1. The former star of Lizzy McGuire is all grown up, and Hillary Duff loves her sci-fi. One of her favorite shows is Stranger Things. Duff is a lot like every other parent who settles in for some TV once the kids are in bed. If creepy and dark shows are her thing, then so be it.
  2. Katharine McPhee loves Downton Abbey which follows the history of a fictional British family. With just the right amount of drama, intrigue, and romance, the show pulls you in. Somewhat like an evening soap, but much classier, you can't help but get involved in all the family drama.
  3. Katie Aselton's binge show is Gossip Girl. Watching the new generation of New York City women struggle with life gives her mind a chance to escape. The show is a definite guilty pleasure watching these bumbling privileged girls who have no idea what life is actually all about.
  4. Emma Watson apparently is a massive fan of the American sitcom Friends. In real life, she's a down to earth woman who's relatable. While Watson was only 6 when the show first aired, many of the jokes are as timeless as she is, so it makes sense she would love this modern classic.
  5. Jake Johnson is a fan of the comedy 30 Rock, and really, who isn't? 30 Rock has excellent comedic timing, and the show is so funny it's easy to binge-watch. Jake knows all about comedy himself since he stars with the incomparable Zooey Deschanel on New Girl.
