In December 2006, Matthew was hit by a surfboard while enjoying some downtime from filming on the Gold Coast in Australia. Stumbling on to the sand, he asked for directions home--to Malibu, California. It was only after one of the surfers said, "Do you know where you are, mate?" that the star twigged to the accent and came around. "I forgot I was in Australia until you guys talked to me," he replied.
