Actress Evan Rachel Wood took home a memorable party favor from her 24th birthday celebration last week: her tooth.

"It was just past midnight and I was dancing with my friends in Paris," The Ides of March star tells PEOPLE at the Toronto Film Festival. "And just boom, I caught an elbow right in the left side of my face. I knew right away when I closed my mouth that something was really wrong."

The actress says she was "in kinda shock," but then started to laugh.

"I was quoting The Hangover and I went, 'Oh my God, I look like a nerdy hillbilly!'" she says. "But the person that did it was crying because they felt so bad."

She's had a few days to recover since Wednesday's mishap, and Wood, who now has a fake tooth, is looking on the bright side.

"I'll never forget my 24th birthday when my tooth got punched out," she says. "And for a second I was like, it would be really hilarious if I sold it on eBay. But I can't, that's just too creepy. I don't think I can go there."
