Movie veteran Debbie Reynolds is nursing a badly bruised face after a midnight fall at her Hollywood home.

The Singin' in The Rain star showed off her unfortunate new look on Wednesday (14May14) as she promoted her third and final memorabilia auction, which is scheduled to take place at the Debbie Reynolds Dance Studios in North Hollywood this weekend (17-18May14).

She told reporters, "I fainted, plummeted to the ground and I hit a rock in my bathroom. It was 12 at night and I just bruised everything."

The upcoming auction features the last items from the actress' vast collection of memorabilia, including costumes worn by Ingrid Bergman, Orson Welles, Gregory Peck and Grace Kelly, and signature hats donned by Charlie Chaplin and Harpo Marx.
