Ryan Reynolds is currently the reigning Sexiest Man Alive, but when he was 19, he was hanging on to life.
The Change-Up actor, 34, says after a night of heavy drinking he decided to be a responsible drinker and walk home instead of driving drunk. Ironically, that same night he was hit by a drunk driver.
"When I was 19 I was drinking... 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.' And I started to walk home," he recalled to CTV News. "And I was hit by a drunk driver."
He adds, he was unconscious for three days and broke every bone on his left side.
"Broke every bone in my left side... I woke up three days later. And I remember my dad sitting there... [with] a vomit tray," he continued. "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."
Reynolds healed up just fine, but he jokes, "Since then, I've been a rickety, broken mess."
