Legally Blonde Star Reese Witherspoon Suffer Face Cut in LA Crash

The Legally Blonde Babe Reese Witherspoon may not be flawless anymore with a recent cut on her forehead after a minor traffic accident in Los Angeles.

Such a pretty face has been scarred for days, but is expected to resume former glow just in time for her upcoming film. Witherspoon’s fans are thankful that the injuries are minor.

Police officers will ask the 84-year-old driver to retake driving test to see whether eye difficulty has been a factor in the crash.
