Ryan Reynolds Reveals Difficult Recovery After Being Hit by Drunk Driver
“When I was 19 I was drinking,” the big-screen hottie told CTV News. “I was at a bar and I had a few drinks and I thought, ‘You know what I’m going to do? I’m going to leave my car here, be responsible.’ I started to walk home and I was hit by a drunk driver.”
The actor says the accident broke several bones and left him unconscious for three days.
“Broke every bone in my left side,” he said. “I woke up three days later. And I remember my dad sitting there… (with) a vomit tray. And I guess I had been heaving in my unconscious. And nothing says love like painting someone with three-day-old Gin Rummies. Just soaked the man head to toe in my vomit.”
That’s what family is for! Or is that just us?
Although bounced back from the incident, he says he has never fully recovered: “Since then, I’ve been a rickety, broken mess.”
