Hayden ChristensenHayden Christensen once hit the headlines when an angry John McEnroe almost smacked him in the face with a tennis racket. Star Wars star Christensen was a keen tennis player as a child, and used to work as a ball boy during championship matches.

And during one match, the volatile McEnroe - famous for frequently losing his temper on court - nearly swiped the young Christensen's head off.

The actor recalls, "He came close to hitting me with his tennis racquet, but it was all a big accident. 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."
