15 Random Fatcs you didn't know about actress, movies and sports on http://theteenytinytoutfaire.blogspot.it/2013/12/15-random-facts-about-actorsactresses.html

- Saudi Arabia is the only state in the world that doesn't allowed women to have a drive license. There's no legal rule about it, simply it's not given to women and driving licenses took in other countries are not valid.



- Winston Churchill is often associated to the English Bulldog; in fact, during WWII, he used tipycal British symbols to gather together the people...but he never owned one. He was a poodle owner!

- In 1987, NBA's Washington Bullets team got on the playing field (at the same time) the highest and shortest players in all NBA history: 
Manute Bol (Sudanese, 231cm) and Tyrone Curtis "Muggsy" Bogues (American, 158cm).



- The only trophy Swiss pro tennis player Roger Federer has left to win to is the gold Olympic medal in singles.

- The deadliest sniper ever is Finnish Simo Hayha. During World War II he killed at least 700 Russian soldiers when they invaded Finland.








- Ryan Gosling and Rachel McAdams worked together in the movie "The Notebook". At the very start of the shooting they could barely stand each other!! After that movie, they have been together for 3 years.

- Speaking of Richard Gere, this March 2015 is the 25th anniversary of the iconic movie Pretty Woman, with him and Julia Roberts as protagonists. It seems like that Disney's didn't want Julia as leading actress, indeed they wanted Meg Ryan.

The only woman who was enlisted in the Foreign Legion was Susan Travers. She was the nurse and driver of General Marie-Pierre Koenig.

- When she was a child, Queen Elizabeth II suffered from obsessive compulsive disorder (OCD): it seems she didn't want to get in bed until she has finished a ritual with her rocking horses; she took the saddle away fed them.
