Nearly 84 percent of StyleWatch readers said they love Reese Witherspoon‘s new bangs, but there’s a somewhat dark reason behind the star’s new hairstyle. During an interview with Graham Norton, airing Saturday night on BBC America, Witherspoon reveals details about her recent car accident — and the scar it left behind.

“I was jogging and I got hit by a car,” she shares. “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.”

Though she didn’t press charges against the driver, an 85-year-old woman, there were legal repercussions. “They took away her license and gave her a bus pass,” the actress explains.

Moving into lighter territory, Witherspoon — who stars in the upcoming romantic action comedy This Means War — reflects on her stellar 2011, which included her wedding to Jim Toth and a meeting with the Duke and Duchess of Cambridge. “It was really fun,” the actress shares. “[Kate] was lovely and funny and she said some sweet girly things. I think she is handling herself so beautifully.”
