Hayden Christensen Almost Boinked by John McEnroe

November 20th, 2007 // 4 Comments

Back before his acting career had taken off, “Star Wars” actor, Hayden Christensen, was an avid tennis player and had managed to snag a gig working as a ball boy during high-profile, championship tennis matches. At one such event, he was working the court when he nearly got clobbered by temperamental tennis champ, John McEnroe. Accordingt to Hayden:

“I was one of those ball boys at the net that run across and grab the ball after it’s smacked into the net. I had good reflexes so as soon as a ball went into the net I was there two seconds later.

“And John McEnroe was wanting to take out his aggression on the ball still and didn’t see me coming. He pulled (his racquet away) inches from my head.

“That was my first time on TV, that made the news.”

And here he is now, a successful actor with such a blissful look on his face that I wonder if he even knows where or who the hell he is. I am happy to report that he appears to have stopped dressing like a homeless person for the time being.

    WOW! you said something almost nice about Hayden.
    He is cool! – there are lots of actors who are not media sluts. Maybe he just likes his privacy.

    i hate people like the person who wrote this story…just because he doesn’t dress to YOUR standards doesn’t make him ”gay” or ”homeless” or ”sloppy”. as long as he’s clean why does it matter what he wears?? he’s not a media whore like most of hollywood actors who dress to impress. hayden dresses and acts the way he wants to. which is comfortable. he doesn’t live the way other people want him to. he’s a free spirit and i respect him for that^^. plus he’s so good looking :D
