25-year-old Rory Curtis was seriously injured in a major car accident that put him in a coma for six days. He suffered a brain haemorrhage, and while he was unconscious, he developed the vivid idea that he was a Oscar winning Texas actor that everyone fell in love with this year. When he woke up to find out he was a British barber, he was sorely disappointed. He didn’t even recognize his own face!
“In my head I thought I was Matthew McConaughey,” Rory told Metro. “When I went to the toilet I went to look in the mirror and I was shocked because I didn’t look like him, I didn’t know what I was looking at.”
“Then slowly over time it eventually clicked and I thought ‘He is an actor, what am I on about?’ But at times I was in hospital thinking I can’t wait to get out of here and back to filming movies.”
Curtis also claims he woke up speaking fluent French even though he only studied it for a little while in high school.
