Tessa Thompson Got Into a Car Accident on New Year's Eve

Tessa Thompson is opening up about the rocky way she ended 2020.

The 37-year-old actress made an appearance on Jimmy Kimmel Live on Thursday (January 7) to talk about her new Amazon movie Sylvie’s Love and she talked about the car accident she got into on New Year’s Eve.

“I drove up a mountain to go to a cabin, and I thought, ‘This will be totally safe because I won’t see anybody.’ But I got into a car accident, so I did have a socially distanced interaction,” Tessa told Jimmy.

Tessa got into an accident with a “big monster truck” while on the high way, but she says now, “I’m safe, obviously, and actually, the driver was very lovely in the end.”

“After this year I feel such gratitude for being alive. It was sort of the sweetest, loveliest accident of all the ones I’ve had in a way,” Tessa added. “But also it made total sense: It’s the only way to end this year would be to get into a car accident.”

When Jimmy joked that the accident sounds like the “beginning of a romantic film,” Tessa responded by saying, “We didn’t exchange numbers, we just exchanged insurance information. And everyone’s okay.”

Tessa recently revealed some exciting news about the upcoming third Creed movie!
