Drinking and driving is definitely a serious issue, and Ryan Reynolds knows first hand what the dangers can be.

It turns out the Hollywood heartthrob was hit by a drunk driver when he was 19-years-old. Reynolds revealed last night on "The Tonight Show with Jay Leno" that his body was left a "broken mess" when he decided to walk home from a bar one night.

Reynolds was out partying with his friends in Vancouver, Canada when he decided to walk home from a bar, instead of getting behind the wheel of his car intoxicated. However, while Reynolds was walking along the road, he was struck by a drunk driver and spent days in hospital with multiple broken bones.

He says, "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. And I was hit by a drunk driver.

"Broke every bone in my left side… I woke up three days later. And I remember my dad sitting there… (with) a vomit tray. 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."

But despite making a full recovery after the serious accident, he jokes, "Since then, I've been a rickety, broken mess."

Ouch! We're so glad Ryan wasn't more seriously hurt. Drinking and driving is definitely something you should never do.

Ryan can be seen next in The Change-Up, which we were at the premiere for.
