Teri Hatcher slices off her eyelashes

London: In a grooming session that went awry, Desperate Housewives star Teri Hatcher accidentally sliced off her eyelashes.

Teri was cleaning up her eyebrows the night before she was to take part in the recent Nautica Malibu Triathlon in California, but the blade slipped and sliced through half of her lashes.

She also admitted that she was tired while cleaning up and felt lucky that she didn``t hurt her eye.

"I had one of those mini razors and so I (placed it on my brow) and in this millisecond I heard this sound, and I``d shaved off half of my eyelashes!" the Daily Star quoted Hatcher as saying.

For the time being, she has glued on fake lashes to avoid looking foolish while stepping out for swimming, biking and running the following day.

During an appearance on U.S. daytime talk show ``The View``, the actress showed her lashes and exclaimed, "So these are all fake!" she added.
