Our babe of the month stars in the action thriller Jack Reacher: Never Go Back but we remember her as Robin from How I met your mother. Well here are 5 things you probably didn’t know about the Canadian actress.
1. Her real name is Jacoba Francisca
Very nice name, slightly exotic even. But Cobie just sounds so much cuter
2. She has 7 siblings! 4 brothers and 3 sisters
Wow! That’s one big family! I’ll bet Christmas is even more fun for them because of the huge numbers.
3. She prefers eating pizza and watching a movie at home to dressing up and going out
Perfect girl *CHECK
4. She’s quite the athlete
She participated in swimming, tennis, and soccer in school and is also a certified scuba diver. She’s Maria Hill as well.
5. She was almost Wonder Woman
Cobie Smulders very nearly played the Amazonian heroine in Joss Whedon’s live action movie adaptation of the character.
