Los Angeles: Actress Reese Witherspoon says she changed her hair style in order to hide a scar on her forehead.
The 35-year-old `This Means War` star said that she decided to get the bangs after she was hit by an 85-year-old driver, reported Us magazine.
"It`s not funny at all," Witherspoon said of accident, which occurred in September 2011.
"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."
Witherspoon decided not to press charges, though the woman did lose her license. "They gave her a bus pass," the actress said.
