Actress Tara Reid sparked concern for her welfare among fans as she shared an image showing her with a bruised and battered face.
The “American Pie” actress took to Instagram and posted a photograph of herself with a large bruise across her forehead. She was also seen with mascara streaks down her face, reports mirror.co.uk.
“Everyone be kind to each other. This is what bullying looks like #Worthless,” she wrote.
Fans spoke of their concern before the star clarified on Twitter that her face was covered in heavy make-up for her new role in anti-bulling movie “Worthless”.
“Please let us know you’re ok,” one fan wrote.
“You can’t post and not explain yourself. What happened,” another said.
One follower commented: “If it’s make-up, (I) think you should give a heads up ….people are concerned.”
“Gosh, please tell me that’s make-up,” another said.
The 40-year-old actress later wrote: “On my new movie #Worthless.”
“I’m so excited being back in New Jersey where I was born and raised. I’m shooting my new movie ‘Worthless’. It’s an anti-bullying movie.”
