I tore rib mus­cle from sneez­ing: Billy Crys­tal

Hindustan Times (Patna) - Live - - Entertainment -

Ac­tor Billy Crys­tal (right) says that he once tore a rib mus­cle from sneez­ing. Crys­tal made an ap­pear­ance on the TV show Jimmy Kim­mel Live this week and ex­plained why he had to resched­ule his in­ter­view, which was orig­i­nally planned for last month, re­ports dai­ly­mail.co.uk.

“I tore a rib mus­cle from sneez­ing, and I lit­er­ally could not breathe,” the 69-year-old said. De­scrib­ing it as the “weird­est in­jury ever”, Crys­tal said that he had been doz­ing off in front of the TV when a vi­o­lent sneeze jolted him awake. “Folks, if it was a car­toon, my arms are fly­ing off my body, my eyes are com­ing out of my head, peo­ple in the room are now naked be­cause it blew their clothes off,” Crys­tal said. “It’s not an in­jury that you want to brag about. I didn’t res­cue a woman out of a burn­ing car. I didn’t catch an or­phan fall­ing out of a burn­ing or­phan­age. No, I sneezed.”
