Ryan Reynolds has revealed a traumatic incident that occurred fifteen years ago.
According to the Green Lantern star, after partying with friends in Vancouver, Canada in 1996, he was hit by a drunk driver on his walk back home.
“When I was 19 I was drinking,” he explained. “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.”
Reynolds then shared that his time in the hospital was overwhelming.
“I 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. 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 vomit.”
While the 34-year-old actor has recovered since his incident, he still remembers that day clearly.
“Since then, I’ve been a rickety, broken mess,” he said.
