11. He suffers from memory loss
Favre’s health continued to be impacted throughout his career owing to numerous concussions. He later told NBC that had newly imposed regulations on concussion come into practice earlier, he would have been forced to sit out a lot of games. He now suffers from memory loss as a result of his various knocks.
10. He was third choice for his There’s Something About Mary role
In 1996 Favre starred alongside MC Hammer in a forgettable sports drama called Reggie’s Prayer. Then two years later he briefly showed up as Cameron Diaz’s ex-boyfriend in There’s Something About Mary. However, he only got the role after both Steve Young and Drew Bledsoe had already snubbed the Farrelly brothers.
