“The Walking Dead” star Norman Reedus keeps a bizarre piece of fan memorabilia in his TV trailer – a woman’s breast implant.

The “Boondock Saints” actor reveals he was sent the odd item by a concerned female fan because his character, outcast Darryl Dixon, always appears sad on the zombie drama, and he has since found a good use for the gel implant.

He tells U.S. talk show host Katie Couric, “It’s actually my phone cradle in my trailer back in Georgia… She said I seemed depressed and I should take that (the implant) to filming… I love it.”
