The 35-year-old actress was knocked down while out jogging by an old lady in September and was left with a black eye and gash on her forehead.
Reese has recovered from her injuries but was left with a permanent reminder of the accident on her head. She figured the best solution was to hide it with a little fringe.
British talk show host Graham Norton joked about the incident, but she said: “I was jogging and I got hit by a car, it’s not funny at all."
“They said I am very hard headed because I landed right on my head and I have a scar, hence my new hairdo."
“I don’t remember much about it but miraculously and thank God I am fine.”
Reese, who is married to Hollywood agent Jim Toth, refused to press charges against the elderly driver but the woman did lose her license because of the incident.
Witherspoon explained, “She was 85 so they took away her license and gave her a bus pass.”
