Calling all celebrity adventurers!
National Aviation Day is on August 19, so we decided to round up some Hollywood pilots, as well as other stars who have hobbies that get them outdoors and, in some cases, up in the air. From Brangelina's love of flying to Matthew McConaughey's surfing adventures, it's easy to find stars who have taken up some not-so-boring hobbies.
Check out some stars in action below:
Harrison Ford not only flies planes but also owns a helicopter, and has even offered up his services to local authorities near his Wyoming ranch. In 2000, he was credited with helping rescue some sick hikers with his helicopter.
Tom Cruise is an avid flier and has had his pilot's license since 1994.
Madonna's a fan of horseback riding ... and has been injured several times after falling from horses.
John Travolta has had his pilot's license for many years, and owns several aircrafts. However, things haven't always gone smoothly in the air. In 1992, a plane he was flying had an electrical failure and he was forced to make an emergency landing. Yikes!
He may play a surgeon on "Grey's Anatomy," but in his spare time, Patrick Dempsey likes to hit the road and race. He's competed in several auto races and is the owner of Dempsey Racing and co-owner of the Vision Racing IndyCar Series team.
Is there anything sexier than a hot guy on a motorcycle? No. Don't believe us? Just look at Bradley Cooper...
...or George Clooney.
Angelina Jolie is no stranger to the pilot's seat -- she's been flying small planes for years.
Just like Angie, Brad Pitt likes to take flight every once in a while.
He may not be an avid skydiver, but Bill Murray did take a leap of faith with a member of the U.S. Army parachute team, the Golden Knights, at the 50th Chicago Air and Water Show in 2008. (Really, we just couldn't pass up including a photo of Mr. Murray skydiving!)
Is there anyone cooler than Matthew McConaughey? Yes, and he's called Matthew McConaughy on a surfboard.
