A man has woken up from a coma speaking fluent French and thinking he is Matthew McConaughey.

The 25-year-old man suffered a brain haemorrhage after his car crashed on a busy motorway in Staffordshire, west England, and remained in a coma for six days before waking up with the belief he was the 45-year-old ‘Interstellar’ actor.

The man, Rory Curtis, recalled looking in the mirror and being confused at his reflection, admitting, “at times I was in hospital thinking ‘I can’t wait to get out of here and back to filming movies.'”

He also revealed how he was perplexed by his ability to suddenly hold a conversation in French, having not studied it for over 10 years.

Speaking to the Daily Express newspaper, he added: “I didn’t even do French at GCSE so haven’t studied it since Year 9 – then all of a sudden I’m fluent in it.”
