It’s okay to be jealous of Cristiano Ronaldo. The good looks, the girls, the money, the fame, the ability – he has everything.
Much like David Beckham, who pretty much invented the whole thing where footballers dip their toes into other avenues like modelling, acting and so on, Ronaldo is a poster boy.
Though his presence can often be annoying – throwing tantrums when he doesn’t score, always looking for a camera when on the pitch and doing that unnecessary free kick stance – he can get away with it, because he’s CR7.
Now, according to reports, the Portuguese footballer is set to take an acting role alongside Angelina Jolie in a TV series about Syrian refugees. According to the Mirror he’s one of a few famous faces that will have a cameo in the series.
“We will begin filming in the first week of April, the series is about the plight of a refugee family and what they go through,” Eyup Dirlik, director of the series, told Turkish media. “There will be appearances from actors and actresses from all over the world including Cristiano Ronaldo, Angelina Jolie and Nancy Ajram.”
The Euro 2016 winner has addressed the issues in Syria before, having sent a message to the children there, telling them not to lose hope.
