Ryan Reynolds has revealed that a responsible move on his part nearly proved fatal. As a teenager, the actor experienced a very scary night out in his native Vancouver, Canada.
"When I was 19 I was drinking," the “Green Lantern” star tells 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."
As a result, the now 34-year-old actor broke "every bone" on his left side and was unconscious for three days.
Reynolds woke up to his father holding a vomit tray. “I guess I had been heaving in my unconscious,” he explains. “And nothing says love like painting someone with three-day-old Gin Rummies. Just soaked the man head to toe in my vomit."
