Taylor Swift’s sweet embrace with boyfriend Travis Kelce after his Super Bowl win may have been the talk of the night — but Paul Rudd is still overjoyed at his own hug from Kelce on the field. 

Rudd, a longtime Kansas City Chiefs super fan, was on the field with the team after their thrilling 25-22 overtime win over the San Francisco 49ers on Feb. 11. Speaking about the win with MTV News Thursday, Rudd, 54, talked about his high anxiety during the game. 

“If I did help the win at all, it was because I didn’t mess with all of the things that I had set around because I’m superstitious. And I think the collective superstitions of all fans probably helped contribute to that win,” he said. “But you know, I’m a big fan of that team and I have been my whole life.”

And once the Chiefs secured the win with a touchdown, Rudd and his fellow super fan son Jack, 17, were overjoyed.

“When they won, it was pure elation. It really is truly the greatest feeling,” he said. “And I was there with my kid and he’s feeling the same way, and to share that with him...”

To put a cherry on the day, Rudd then got to hug Kelce on the field. 

“Travis Kelce is the greatest guy, he really is,” the Ghostbusters: Frozen Empire star said. “He’s been involved in a charity of ours in Kansas City for years and years … And then to get to hug Travis Kelce right after a Super Bowl win. It just makes no sense. It’s unreal.”

Rudd also confirmed that he’s a true fan of Kelce’s girlfriend, Swift, after attending one of her Eras Tour stops near New York City with his daughter Darby, 13. 

Refuting the idea that he’s just a “proxy” fan because of his kids, Rudd agreed that he’s a Swiftie himself. 

“No, I think she’s really very good, I think she’s great,” he said, before naming his favorite of her songs. “I really like ‘Mastermind,’ I sing a lot of that one. ‘Cruel Summer,’ sure, like everybody else, right? ‘The Archer,’ maybe? ‘August,’ maybe? I’m just going through the A’s, really.”

He went on to admit, though, that other than Swift, his music taste is a bit dated. 

“I listen to stuff from a long time ago, I listen to stuff that my parents listened to,” he said. “I’m not hip. I’m out of what’s cool, and not by choice, it’s just because I’m old.”
