Sam Claflin Opens Up On Giving Up His Soccer Dream
Sam Claflin rocks a scarf while arriving at a photo call for his latest film The Hunger Games: Mockingjay Part 1 at Villamagna on Wednesday (November 12) in Madrid, Spain.
The 28-year-old English actor recently chatted about giving up his dreams of playing soccer as a career.
“When I was 16 I injured myself badly and had to sit out of soccer,” Sam shared to German magazine Jolie (via Belfast Telegraph).
He added, “In that time, I realized a few things. I was very small at the time; all my friends were bigger and more muscly than me. I just wasn’t strong enough or talented enough to keep up. So, with a heavy heart, I had to say goodbye to that dream.”
