Each and every year, some of the biggest names in Hollywood head to the All England Club in Wimbledon, London to join the British royal family in watching the best tennis players in the world compete. (And to eat strawberries and cream—it’s a tradition.) With the stakes so high, it’s no wonder that even the most calm and collected A-listers can their cool while watching the matches. Kate Middleton takes the cake in showcasing her enthusiasm, but stars like Hugh Grant have seemed to have as much trouble holding back. Here, take a look back at Natalie Portman, Drake, Jude Law, Kate Winslet’s dramatic grimaces and grins over the years.
