Sexy actress Jennifer Love Hewitt will watch her fashion choices more carefully, after an armband she wore to a celebrity event led to everybody believing she had been injured in an accident.

The I KNOW WHAT YOU DID LAST SUMMER star sported the unconventional accessory to last year's (02) American Music Awards, but ended up getting sympathetic questions from everyone she countered.

The screen star - who landed in seventh position in a recent poll of Hollywood most accident-prone celebrities, topped by HALLE BERRY - admits the whole scenario was an "embarrassing" experience.

She says, "It was like a $1,000 (GBP625) piece of vintage jewellery, like an armband fashion statement thing and when I got to the red carpet, everybody was like, 'Is your arm okay?' And I was like, 'Yeah, it's fine, but thanks so much for asking,' like I'm not really sure what they're talking about.

"Then I get to the end of the red carpet and I'm asking my friend who's with me, 'What are they talking about?' She goes, 'Everybody thinks that thing on your arm is a cast!' And I'm like, 'No, this is my one chance to be rock star cool and everybody thinks I've broken my arm!' Now they've labelled me accident prone. So embarrassing!"
