The Along Came Polly star was so distraught by their split in 2010 he started dating too soon and instantly made a fool of himself.
He tells Elle magazine, “It was kind of a disaster… I was leaving a friend’s house who had some construction work going on. It was dark out. I remember saying to myself, ‘Be careful, there are a lot of holes around here.’ And I fell in a hole anyway – a six-foot hole – and I actually busted a couple of ribs.
“I was all dirty and bloody, and I showed up at this girl’s door. You’d think I would have taken the hint that God was telling me I wasn’t ready to date.”
The actor has since found love with girlfriend Katie Wright, the mother of his two-year-old son Hank.
