(NEWSER) – One day you're a 25-year-old barber; the next, you're Matthew McConaughey. Or at least, you thinkyou're Matthew McConaughey. That's what happened to Rory Curtis, a UK man who got in a bad car accident in England in August 2012 and came out of the six-day coma that resulted believing he was the Hollywood actor. He also spoke fluent French, despite having not studied the language in years. "I was sitting there spouting a foreign language from my hospital bed acting all French in their sort of arrogant yet sophisticated way," explains Curtis in a new interview with the Telegraph.
"Also, in my head I thought I was Matthew McConaughey. 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."
