Way back in 2009, Paris Hilton was helping Ronaldo celebrate his £94 million transfer to Real Madrid from Manchester United. The celebrations were at My House, a trendy Hollywood nightclub, and the photos that surfaced showed them getting super friendly!
On the rebound from Doug Reinhardt, the Hilton heiress was seen flirting heavily with the football star. When questioned, Paris said, “They were just getting to know each other.” Sure.
Saving the Trees
Cristiano Ronaldo has a huge heart. In 2013 he decided to do his bit to save the mangrove forests of Indonesia. He is now the ambassador for The Mangrove Care Forum. This organization is based in Bali and is working tirelessly to conserve the Indonesian Mangrove forests.
Ronaldo hopes that his actions will “inspire the movement to rescue the mangroves and help improve the environment.” Good on you, Ronaldo, you are an inspiration in and out of the field.
Ronaldo and Messi — Teammates
Wait, what? Yes. This was back in 2012 when the two teamed up during the 11 for a health initiative, which helps improve kids’ views toward disease. FIFA gathered eleven of the best footballers and convinced the two rivals, Ronaldo and Lionel Messi, to play on the same team.
This may be the first and the last time we see these two on the same team, but it was truly shocking and enjoyable for fans.
Ronaldo and Food
Ronaldo loves to eat! But as an athlete, he has to stay lean and ultra-fit. It is reported that he loves fish, especially when cooked the Portuguese way. Ronaldo’s favorite fish include sea bream and swordfish.
He opts for a high protein diet with a heap of fruit, veg, and whole-grain carbs. And as you’d expect, he stays away from sugary treats. When it comes to his favorite dish — it’s bacalhau a braz: a fish dish with onions, potatoes, and scrambled egg. Sound good?
Crashing a Ferrari!
And of course, it wasn’t any old car, it had to be a Ferrari! Ronaldo was on his way to a training session when the accident happened in 2009. The car crashed inside a tunnel, and the entire front end of the supercar was destroyed.
Luckily Ronaldo came out uninjured, and no other cars were involved. He is so chill that he took part in the training session right after this frightening experience.
