Reese Witherspoon Sports Black Eye from Accident
That's quite a shiner!
Reese Witherspoon re-emerged for a pal's party in Los Angeles on Monday -- and sported a black eye and a bandaged forehead, which she sustained after getting hit by a car last Wednesday. Despite the injuries, Witherspoon cheerfuly unloaded gifts from the trunk of her car.
It's the first time the Oscar-winning actress, 36, has been photographed since the scary accident in Santa Monica. The avid runner was jogging when an 84-year-old female driver struck her; Witherspoon will not be pressing charges against the woman, who failed to yield at a pedestrian crosswalk.
"The whole incident really frightened her," a source close to the actress told Us. "Now she's just resting up."
Fortunately, the mother of two's minor injuries won't hamper her upcoming film projects, including This Means War and Mud.
"The odd thing about all of this," the source adds, "is that Reese has always been very afraid of being hit by a car. It's been an ongoing fear of hers. She is always the first person to pull people away from the edge of the curb."
