But I got into a car accident, so I did have a socially distanced interaction.”

She added, “I got hit by a big monster truck on the highway. Let’s put it this way. It is as ‘monster’ as a truck could be, driving with a regular commercial license. I got hit, but I’m safe, obviously, and actually, the driver was very lovely in the end.” The actress also revealed that she faced similar incidents in the past and asserted, “I feel like I’m so used to car accidents because I was born and raised in Los Angeles, so it feels like accidents are my birthright. I’ve had many of them.

The actress had earlier opened about her bond with actor Michael Jordan and said in a statement, “Michael and I love playing these characters and really had a rapport with each other the first time around. Since then, we’ve stayed in touch and maintained a friendship and seen each other through different milestones.” She added, “It doesn’t feel like time has passed. It sort of feels like we’re growing up together. And a lot has happened to Mike and to me in the years since we made ‘Creed’. He and I are also in this new space of navigating public personas and personal lives, finding that balance. It’s interesting for that to also be reflected in our film.”
