Who knew? Surprising celebrity facts
You could say the the Australian actress began putting on a show early in life.
When she was just 11 years old, she faked her way into the operating room to have her appendix removed.
“My mother had her appendix removed when she was 11, so when I got to 11, she’d told me the tale about when they put their finger into the appendix area, you don’t feel anything,” she explains. “So, I had slight pain and I did exaggerate it a little. And they were removed and the doctor seemed slightly sheepish and slightly embarrassed when he said, “Yes, they were…a little infected.”
“I don’t think I was thinking that clearly then,” she admits. “I just wanted to figure it out what it would feel like.”
